Am I missing something here? What gives?
I remember cat_race saying he was on OKcupid to meet friends. If you're looking for friends find a friend app or website, not a dating one.
still quite a stigma attached to internet dating
Stakes are too high on tinder to get caught.
Wouldn't surprise me if 10-20% of people on there aren't single. Sounds like a fair incidence in weirdness amongst most populations.
But about half a dozen of my mates are and it's LITERALLY all they talk about at the moment. Bit boring.
I know one person in a relationship on Tinder mind.
but it got blocked as 'offensive and tasteless' by my work IT :/
but thought he could do better, so asked his girlfriend if it could become an open relationship. Turns out that no other girls wanted to sleep with him, and his girlfriend is now hooking up left, right and centre and loving it.
Typical Reddit user
"It's not like I knew it would turn out to be this unbalanced, and it's not exactly fair on me is it?"
Awfonderful, if you will.
But just to have a look at the 'product' and its 'technology'
If they're evangelising as they should be!
Apparently it's nice to see who picks you and it's not weird because she only does it in groups of friends.
This is the start of me being old and confused by the world isn't it.
I have a shite phone though so it's not even an option
Regarding themselves as commodities, constantly determining their 'worth', weirds me out.
what's wrong with just getting much, much too drunk and jumping on a friend of a friend? eh?
Seems like it's about esteem like we've just had it drilled into us everyone's just a product, so people get fun out of being constantly rated
Fuck that for a laugh (or not s'pose)
But you're right.
I don't necessarily think that people don't want the romance/relationship side of things anymore, they just know they're not going to get them on Tinder/POF etc
I'd presume tinder is just one of many ways people look for validation.
"Do you have nice feet"
"Fancy a fuck"
"Will you go to a gig with my friend?"
- Hey sexy, hows you?
- Fine thanks, who's the girl in your photo?
- My wife.
the okweirdoes tumblr was quite an eye opener. Sadly receiving creepy\awkward messages seems to be pretty much standard for women regardless of the medium.
Wouldn't that mean you are limiting yourself to opposite sex/gay/bi. I mean not that there is anything wrong with that at all but you have pretty slim chances given the groups whose category you would fall into are most likely looking to be more than friends (that's why they are on a dating site, no?) and the group you are most likely to actually just want you as a friend (i.e. the ones who definitely don't mainly want to fuck you) are never going to see your profile.
They're jsut pretending to be out to meet friends. Actually they want sex
bit greedy really
