You find yourself waking up on a Tuesday, soaking wet in your own stress sweat, screaming "Ahhh, it's April and I don't even have a 401k and I just downloaded my third dating app of the week and now i'm supposed to turn another year older?"
Now that you've got a city's worth of potential matches in the palm of your hand, why would you settle for 7 out of 10 must-haves? There's got to be somebody out there with 8, or 9, or even all 10. And the more you keep swiping or liking away, the better a chance you have of finding them, right?

22 is the age of in-betweens -- in between adolescence and adulthood, in between relationships, in between this job and that career -- and it's nearly impossible to know who you are when you are still "becoming."
Sure, young 20-somethings (YTS) don't have wrinkles and crushing responsibilities like a mortgage, kids or elderly parents living in the spare bedroom. Know what else we don't have? Jobs. Money. A home. Secure relationships.
