31 Millennials Reveal The Best Dating Advice They’ve Ever Gotten

To be a millennial in the dating world is to aimlessly swipe away, combatting carpal tunnel and f*ckboys like it’s our overqualified and underpaid job. We’re basically just shooting arrows of half-assed drinking dates and mindless hookups until we hit someone that isn’t totally disgusting and annoying.

Maybe if we listened to those who came before us, we wouldn’t be in this mess. Okay, dating has never been easy — even for kooky old gramps. But in this day and age, we are being suffocated by a ridiculous amount of dating apps while not sticking around long enough to see things pan out with someone we kind of like.

But like, how?

This is some of the best dating advice millennials have ever received:
