About me: I’m a 21 year old from Norway. I study economics and computer science, and I like music, reading and cooking.
I have successfully stopped using Instagram and Facebook. But I have not been able to stop mindlessly using reddit and youtube, and I also compulsively follow news and politics. I feel like my internet use is making me constantly anxious and worried about things I can’t do anything about. I want to feel more calm and content in my everyday life, and not feel like I’m missing out on the world if I don’t keep up with everything happening on the internet.
My goals: I want to commit to developing healthier internet habits, and use more of my time on slower, more intentional and rewarding activities like reading, spending time in nature, meditating, hobbies and spending time with friends. I also want to take other steps to deal with anxiety.
What I want from a partner:
Someone who is dealing with similar issues
Taking concrete steps together to improve our digital habits
Talking openly about our successes, failures and challenges
Talking about things related to social media, anxiety, addiction and online entertainment
Discussing music, meditation, hobbies and books (and activities to do instead of surfing)
I would prefer to communicate via text, either through long form e-mails or through normal texting via some instant messaging app.
Let me know if any of this resonated with you!
