Dating is a waste of time
Not that I am passing some kind of moral judgment here. And, it is not because they’re a couple of smartphone applications, used primarily by people to have casual sex. It’s because they live in a world where people and sex are disposable commodities. It was such a perfectly, reasonable, rational not to mention respectful way to meet a potential partner. I call them the devil’s children of Internet dating. I just have a lot of personal issues with Tinder and Grindr.“Females users are quite picky, and when they swipe right, they are more likely to mean it.”Anyway, back to the main point.Spending hours swiping robotically through profiles and getting excited when you get a match, then messaging her only to be ignored, is not your fault.So I was quite interested and bemused to read a story with the headline: “ How Sex Is Killing The Live Music Scene Thanks To Tinder And Grindr.” The story suggested that we forget breath-testing, lockouts, or downloading – Sex is killing live music, or at least the search for it is, on Tinder and Grindr.
When I was growing up, and you wanted to meet someone for a relationship, it was reasonably upfront. There was the at work option, or at a party, pub or bar. I’m so old fashioned and out of touch to be talking about this. But for some of us, maybe even many of us, these two apps have fundamentally changed the way we go about things relationship wise and not in a good way, in my view.That said, don't lose hope--there's no reason why you shouldn't be in that tiny percentage of people who do exchange numbers and possibly meet up for some hot Tinder sex.
