Gay dating online
”My pleasant if unremarkable experience with Bumble was slightly marred when I read this ludicrous passage in ’s fawning interview of Bumble founder Whitney Wolfe.“Users swipe left (or ‘no’) and right (or ‘yes’) on profiles of potential partners. But on Bumble—unlike Tinder or Ok Cupid—only the women can begin a conversation…
Perhaps still more impressive: the ratio of women to men using the app, which is just about even—uncommon for this sector.
Then again, HER’s minimalist profile reflects the modern trend in online dating towards less chatty profiles that encourage users to interact rather than creep.
I like that Facebook is required to sign up for HER because it helps keep out pathetic men who get off by pretending to be lesbians on the internet.
Meaning those ratchet couples creeping for threesomes can now be instantly spotted and dismissed along with the dishonest and unfaithful. Bumble Bumble’s big feminist twist—only girls can send the first message—is rendered irrelevant by lesbianism.
Lesbianism: where girls always have to send the first message. Once you’ve made a match on Bumble, the pressure is on to move quick or miss out.
