and all over the Britain looking for casual online dating fun with a local stranger.
So are most people when they vent about Tinder and how it has ruined dating/love/monogamy.Their argument is overly obvious: that it’s too easy to find a new (sex) partner, and therefore nobody settles down anymore, swiping the moment something goes wrong in a relationship. Your options were: meet through friends (and our circle of friends tends to dwindle as we get older, so that stops working by one’s mid-20s); meet at a bar (kind of like meeting on Tinder except when a guy comes up to you and says something creepy, you still have to engage instead of just putting your phone down); meet at Whole Foods (which never happens); and so on.This argument reared its head again of late in a piece in s September issue, “Tinder and the Dawn of the Dating Apocalypse.” Most of the story is based on man-on-the-street-style interviews that presume most people use Tinder for sex and then confirm most people use Tinder for sex via interviews with people who use Tinder for sex.Culture delivered to your inbox The author, Nancy Jo Sales, is missing the point.On Christmas, I flew to Prague to spend the holidays with a beautiful and hilarious Estonian girl I had never met—not in person, anyway.
