As a result, a community has emerged: Dating App TikTok.

Made up of mostly Gen Z women, these community members share the ups and downs of online dating. Now that people are becoming fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus, it’s time to meet the people they’ve been talking to in lockdown for so long.

People upload videos showing off their date outfits, offering safety tips, sharing their experiences, and more, with users sharing their own stories in the comment sections.

Overall, it’s pretty cool to see a wholesome, supportive community play out on social media.

The posts are especially helpful for those new to online dating, or even those who feel intimidated. If they see creators like Mikayla putting themselves out there before a date, it may give them more confidence in the dating world.

However, some people have noticed the community’s success and used it for clout, like Gigi’s dating story that involves matching with her best friend’s older brother.
