Online dating for people with depression
This website is independent, non profit making and is free for all to use.
We would however like to express our gratitude to for the kind use of some of their resources.
And to top it all off, online dating can bring about addiction.
According to a recent, nonscientific, volunteer-based survey, nearly one in six singles (15 percent) reported feeling “addicted” to the online dating process.
The main forms of communication we offer are via our supportive Depression Chat Rooms, Depression Forums and our Depression Blog section.
Whilst our primary objective is to connect people that have issues regarding depression and anxiety, we also warmly welcome others that may have health issues that are related to depression and anxiety.
A 2017 study published in the journal Body Image asked more than 1,000 college students about Tinder’s effects on their body image and self-esteem — and the results were not encouraging."Each year about 15 million adult Americans suffer from clinical depression." Furthermore, "...specialists predict that by 2020, depression would become the 2nd most common health problem throughout the world." Depression is a life-altering illness that affects not only those with it, but those who love the sufferer.Even more unfortunate, is that depression is a highly treatable illness, but studies also show that, "About 80% of the people suffering from depression now are not receiving any kind of medical treatment." Medical treatment includes the use of medications to balance out whatever chemicals in your brain are making you depressed, but also includes therapy, self help groups and depression support groups.Researchers discovered that both sexes that use the app have lower self-esteem and are less satisfied with their bodies and looks than nonusers.“As a result of how the app works and what it requires of its users, people who are on Tinder after a while may begin to feel depersonalized and disposable in their social interactions, develop heightened awareness (and criticism) of their looks and bodies and believe that there is always something better around the corner, or rather with the next swipe of their screen, even while questioning their own worth,” wrote the study’s author Jessica Strübel.
