Dating sites just for sex
“When you say you went on a Tinder date, most people expect you had sex with the person,” she says.
“It’s a bummer, because I used it to meet cool people to expand my dating pool, which was helpful with the radius feature on Tinder.” She says that, despite some annoying responses from dudes, she was just out of a relationship and wanted to stick with using the app.
They provide a way to meet people on a user’s own schedule, which potentially democratizes the whole dating process. Carrie Bradshaw was clearly a con artist.) To look at it from a distance, the future of dating is easy and great! If dating apps are supposed to take the headache out of trying to meet someone, it's not a good sign that so many daters consider them a necessary evil at best and just plain evil at worst.
Iliza Shlesinger, in her new Netflix special, , has a bit about online dating.
“I think I most enjoyed the bios, because it really shows what people think is important enough to say in a few words.” Her bio was a Nicki Minaj lyric that she says, “sparked a lot of conversations”—including one with the guy who would later become her husband.
Julia* lives in Maine and, though she says she’s had the most success meeting people via Bumble, kept Tinder for her work trips.
But you have to hand it to Tinder, they really did change the game (for better or worse).
I've never had a one-night stand.— Mike, 32OK, ladies, now I get it. While a healthy portion fully admit they want to find love, just as many want sex and only sex.
I'm personally shocked I didn't see any “friends with benefits” wishes, but it seems like the guys looking for sex are after something even less committal, opting for one-night stands.
Now that I'm in a long-term relationship with a person I met on the app, there's still a part of me that's nostalgic for the act of swiping.
While I did find what I was looking for when I used the app, I also enjoyed the game-like aspect of swiping. (It was the preferred app I'd browse when I was going to the bathroom.)So with that, I guess you could say my intentions on the app were mixed.
