I've been hearing my girlfriends discuss their wins and losses with a variety of online-dating phone apps, so I'm breaking down the newest means of tech-based courtship.
What is it like for a single woman in India on Tinder, looking for something more than a ‘hook-up’? What is it like to be on Tinder (or any other dating app) in India? One could bump into just about anyone and anything. Since there is no question of spotting a wedding band on an app one resorts to asking directly ‘Are you married? However, if you are looking at truly dating someone, spare yourself the grief – stay away from these urbane lads.
You chat, you meet, you enjoy each other’s company but somewhere in the conversation you also realize there will be no second date.
It could be chemistry, it could be ideological differences, it could be because both want different things in the long run or it could be something else.
Even so, one could argue that these mainstream films reflect the desires of white America, or more to the point, white men, and not Black men, which up to this point is the only group of men I’ve dated.
as women is difficult, because it can make us feel powerless and/or less-than-feminist.
So posts like this make folks uncomfortable, often leading to three kinds of reactionary (and unhelpful) comments. Even though we all have insecurities, self-confidence is not my major struggle.
It seems like every day there's a new form of online dating.
No matter what type of relationship you're looking for — from the forever kind to the friends-with-benefits kind — there's an app for that!
