It’s tough to find love in 2023, even if you’re as famous and wealthy as Olivia Dunne.
As we’ve covered in the past, the dating situation for young people in America is an absolute disaster. While there are probably a lot of reasons, none are bigger in my humble opinion than dating apps. Being able to hide behind a phone screen has seemingly stunted the development of young people when it comes to social skills.
Back in the day, you actually had to walk up to a woman and talk to her in person. What a novel concept. Now, everyone just fires away on their cell phones.
However, you’d think being famous and rich would be enough to overcome the problems created by dating apps.
Well, not if you’re the LSU star.
Olivia Dunne is out here struggling too.
Dunne, who will be in the new Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, shared a new TikTok Sunday claiming some people leave her on read on Snapchat for up to 16 hours at a time.
When someone doubted her story, Olivia Dunne responded people would “be surprised” by her getting left on read.
Perhaps this is why Olivia Dunne recently hinted that she’s not in the dating pool at the moment. She previously hinted she couldn’t date because she was too busy.
Now, it seems like she’s just struggling to get people to respond. If Olivia Dunne, who has more than 11 million followers on TikTok and Instagram and earns millions, can’t earn a date, what situation are normal people in?
Not good, folks. Not good at all.
I hate to sound like a broken record, but put the phones down and learn how to talk to each other. Clearly, tech is not helping. If that’s not clear at this point, it never will be. Hopefully, Dunne bounces back. Something tells me she’ll be just fine. Being loaded and popular always pays off in the end.

put down the damned phones and start acting like the REAL people you are…phones have great use but the human touch cannot be surpassed…i’ll go further and say that the phone will enslave you if you give it permission…and only you can give that permission…there’s a great big beautiful world out there…a test…leave the phone at home or in the car for an hour and check your emotional and physical reactions to the lack of immediate phone access…it may surprise you. And then start to “tame those phone demons” by being aware…food for thought and it works…
There was a time not too long ago where phones were used by people to make phone calls. At least you can hear voices and inflections that can possibly lead to connectivity. Then came texting, and that was all she rote. There’s no personality in texting or DMing others in social media. At some point, you’ll have to actually get out and meet someone. As for Dunne, I don’t see how anyone with her schedule can develop a relationship. All in due time, of course, but it’s interesting that there’s no one on LSU’s campus courting her. That’s the more remarkable note here.
