Seems more like a gift to humanity than an apocalypse.

I read about this western guy that when boring, just go to an intersection and start asking women if they will give him a blowjob, and hi say he gets thousands of rejections, but also get some blowjobs. I GUESS is least painful getting rejected online.

Tinder is a pretty good way to meet people in a new place. Or dating people outside of your friends circle. I actually stayed good friends with many of my matches also.

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.

I heard about an eskimo who doesn't know how to build igloos. Thought I'd add my 2p to this fascinating thread.

my two cent ....

not gonna debate about morality regarding casual relationships, it's one's choice and it takes two hands to clap. HOWEVER, please be honest about it. if its NSA you want, then speak that. if its relationship that you seek, speak THAT. but never ever, mix the two. I really do not believe that problems are caused by APPS, they're caused by dishonesty.

My general feeling about Tinder and dating apps is that most of the girls I met from them were ugly. Lots of pics were photoshopped and nearly every meeting was a disappointment. Maybe only 1 in 10 girls that I met face to face could actually be considered cute, and I'm not a bad looking guy. Definitely not a model, but comfortably above average. The girls I met in daily life, on the street or events were generally much cuter, so my general feeling about these apps is that the girls on them have unrealistic expectations thus increase the likelihood a guy will directly proposition them for sex rather than pursue a serious relationship. Or maybe my problem is that I didn't photoshop my pics.

Did anyone else have the same feeling?
