Online Dating: Why Is Your Vaccination Status Such A Big Deal?

Online Dating: Why Is Your Vaccination Status Such A Big Deal?

It’s no longer an anomaly.

You have seen several dating profiles where people have mentioned that it is a deal-breaker if you are vaccinated against covid-19.

This is puzzling to you.

Why have this as such a deal-breaker on one’s dating profile?

You have a live and let live mentality.

It is up to each individual to get their covid-19 vaccination.

Nonetheless, to make this such a big deal in terms of matching with someone seems like overkill.

You have literally seen dating profiles brazenly state that you should swipe left on them for having a vaccination status that is immunized against covid-19.

Unfortunately, in the highly polarized world we live in today, even something as innocuous as getting a vaccine has been reduced to politics.

People who have this stipulation about vaccination status on their dating profiles didn’t take too kindly to being told that they had to get vaccinated to go about their business in public.

Some of them got kicked out of department stores for not getting vaccinated or wearing a mask.

Some weren’t allowed to travel.

Remaining cooped up in the home without seeing family and friends for an extended period of time, intensified their severe disdain for having their lives turned upside down over a virus they didn’t believe to be as severe as the politicians and media were making it out to be.

After the covid-19 lockdown which lasted way too long in their eyes, they came out into the world seething, ready to exact their revenge.

On dating profiles, they state that anyone who is vaccinated against covid-19 is a deal-breaker for them because you advocated for the pain they just went through during the lockdown.

A vaccinated person is a constant reminder to them about how their life was put on hold for a virus they don’t believe is anywhere as life-threatening as it has been made out to be.

So much of this has to do with them wanting to strike back at the world for what they went through during the lockdown.

A vaccinated person is someone who was in agreement with such a draconian policy that took away their freedoms for an extended period of time.

The thought of this sets them off.

Allowing themselves to entertain the thought of matching with a vaccinated person is akin to inviting an enemy into their home.

Many people across the country, especially conservatives, have drawn a line in the sand on this vaccination issue.

Now that the lockdown is over across the country, they are teeming with fury.

A fury that built up over those long months of lockdown.

Now that things are getting back to normal, they need an outlet to unleash that pent-up fury.

Dating apps are an outlet.

So are recently reopened businesses, especially in the southern parts of the country, who are refusing to allow people in who are still wearing masks.

This is how they are lashing back at the powers that be that kept them isolated in their homes for a good long while during the lockdown.

These people on dating apps are motivated more so by vengeance than anything else.

With so much pent-up fury, this isn’t someone worth talking to.

You are not on the dating app to bring drama into your life, so it’s best to steer clear of dating profiles like this.

You won’t be the first.

Once they realize that this stipulation about vaccination status is costing them matches, they might do some soul-searching and rethink their entire attitude around the subject.
