    Its still a new way of doing things, man. I doubt anyone could blame you for being anxious about meetups through it.

    Thanks. I just wish people conversed more often, you know? I get really freaked out when I haven't had the time to get to know someone for all their quirks and such before I meet them.

    Tinder is one of those places. Its a constant race for a lot of people there.

    Exactly! And I feel like human connection can't be rushed. Everyone is like "just give me your best cheesy pickup line" and I'm just going "bitch I want to get to know the real you"

    You can blame the meet'n fuck dating culture for all the bullshit speedrunning these people try and pull.

    Exactly. I'm not interested in just fucking. I want someone who I genuinely enjoy being in a relationship with; and I feel like that's nearly impossible with that culture pervading most dating sites now. Honestly man I just want someone who I can love with my whole heart and who feels the same about me. That's not asking too much, right?

    For people like that? Its not even worth trying, really. I mean sure, there's always going to be that diamond somewhere deep in the swamp but whether or not you want to wade through the bog to get there is entirely up to you.

    Actual one to one contact, and the dating game in general has been deteriorating for years. Like its out of fucking fashion to function like a human being and not a sex-crazed gibbon.

    Dude being a male in an Italian-French-Polish family I get asked every Christmas: "Are you gay, T? Where's your girlfriend?" And it's like, I'm just waiting for the right person, not any person.

    Tinder's probably one of the worst places imaginable to make a lasting connection with another human being

    The internet was a mistake. Haha damn you kids are fucked up. When I was in high school we had Nokia phones and JUST GOT MYSPACE. We cybersexed over Yahoo chatrooms with a billion different usernames right after school. Ahh the good old days. We actually corresponded by Email for fucks sake.

    The internet was and is an amazing invention with all kinds of valid uses. Social media and hookup culture are the mistakes.

    @Pariah Dog Won't argue with that. My friend had me try it out sophomore year of college and for whatever reason I believed it could work lmao (Tinder not the internet; I'm not Amish or anything)

    Amazing invention that has brainwashed the masses, like TV before it, and the printing press before that, and scraps of paper before that...every tool has it's uses.

    @TorontRayne Rabid corporatism is the main offender who you have to thank for that.

    The masses will always have their opiates, one way or another. I'm sure Ug the Caveman lamented the decadence of the emerging cave-painting culture.
