Why am I scared of dating apps?

I’m terrified of people I know seeing me there and even just seeing random people irl that would’ve seen me on dating apps for example in the gym.
I legit lose sleep over it.

Is this an irrational fear?

    If you're an average or below man you should be scared.

      I often get cold approached irl by both women and homos irl and get told i’m good looking. Definitely not good looking enough to be pulling really good looking girls from dating apps, but i’m just hoping for a norma looking gf who isn’t fat.

    OP if they saw you on a dating app wouldn't they then, by definition, be on the dating app themselves?

      Yes but I feel i’m below them. I don’t feel worthy of them even seeing me and having to waste time swiping.

        And therein lies your problem.

    I saw a girl I'm friends with on a dating app, I just showed it to her and we laughed it off. No one cares about you that much, Anon. That's the one thing you'll learn from a dating app.

    This actually will happen, if you're scared of this then don't do it.

        Why do you want a gf then? Focus on fixing your insecurities otherwise you'll never be happy and girls will find you repulsive anyway.

          My insecurities come from not having a gf/sex

            Why is it that I have neither and I'm fine while you struggle? Something to think about.

            Doesn't matter. You have to fix that first anyway, or else your insecurities will just push women away.

    yes because people do talk.
    normies especially.
    At lunch with coworkers my age (mid-late 20s), one mentioned seeing another coworker on there (older woman in her mid 30s). everyone was being pretty rude and laughing for being on dating apps. played it off that he's only on to check it out.

    yes dont get on dating apps unless youre an alpha thats hooking up with everyone because otherwise everyone knows youre single and desperate. There is a reason everyone laughs at online dating and apps. youre supposed to not want to use them.

    You are not the main character of this movie, no matter what you think. Nobody cares, and if they notice they forget in 30 seconds anyway.
    People who get bullied don't get bullied for what they do but because they are bully-able regardless what they do, so not OLD will not save you.
    The main problem with OLD is the company running it makes more money if they fail to match you up, and the process has been engineered such that most guys will not get anything, so its mostly a time sink and money sink for no or minimal reward, that's what you should be worried about.
