Re: Dating Thread - Ranting, Bitching, Story-telling, Advice, and of course Judgment!

Here's a really gross/funny Grindr interaction I had a couple of weeks ago.

Day 1
Him: Hey, wanna come to my office and piss on each other?
Day 2
Him: Hey, wanna come to my office and piss on each other?
Me (because I don't have a third day of this): Unfortunately, I've already peed today so I'm all tapped out.
Him: Well, that's the thing about piss, it'll accumulate again. Contact me later when you need to go.
Me: Well, I don't think that's in the cards for us, but I reckon plenty of others will gladly do this with you.
Him: Probably, but I like that you're Asian.
Me: I'm not sure what you were expecting, but I don't piss soy sauce.
Him: That's ok. I'll still eat it.
Me: Hahahahah

Re: Dating Thread - Ranting, Bitching, Story-telling, Advice, and of course Judgment!

reephoria, your avatar so adorbs omg



but yeah, grindr is so awkward and gross. does the gay community really have to resort to that to find people? what happened to the good old getting to know each other, becoming friends and then dating if that happens thing?

i was actually reading off other forums that like gay guys go through the high school phase of sleeping around and then serious relationships at a much later age than heterosexual relationships. Much later as in maybe like 5-10 years later.

and then of course there's that issue where only like 10% of the population is gay. And to make matters even worse, half of them are like in the closet or suffering from internalized homophobia. Let's not forget that some friends are also completely no-go's cos that's just awkward (sorry arlyn/chris/andrew )

That being said i learned this year that if u want to date u just honestly have to put urself out there and take opportunities when u see them (that's not possible for me tho cos i'm ridiculously sentimental and not to mention i have ridiculously high standards)

i didn't even actually realise i had such high standards until like a hundred billion friends pointed it out. Mess.

It's not that hard to date and/or hook up. Just gotta know where to look.

Re: Dating Thread - Ranting, Bitching, Story-telling, Advice, and of course Judgment!

I've never really gotten the whole dating stage. As a European, we never really use that word. Either you're in a relationship, or you're not. Is it like the fase after meeting someone for the first time, and you're unsure whether it'll all work? Or is dating just the same as being with someone alltogether?

Re: Dating Thread - Ranting, Bitching, Story-telling, Advice, and of course Judgment!

I know of a few people who actually used Grindr to start a relationship that didn't begin as a hookup. About ~40% of the people in my radius are anti-hookup, so you just have to get lucky and find the right person. It's not as impossible as you might think. Don't just assume that everyone else on there is a whore.

I mainly use Grindr to troll though.

It just depends. It can mean it's a casual thing or that you're in a serious relationship.

I don't know why people have to troll Grindr. You don't want to use it for what it is, don't. It's ridiculous to slut-shame people. If I want to have sex, I'm going to - with or without Grindr.

I actaully like Adam4Adam. I've been on several good dates from there and had a pretty decent relationshiop with someone from there. Grindr is a waste of life. IMO Jack'd is a better app but I don't have either anymore. I stick with my A4A

Grindr wasn't created for people to get boyfriends so I'm not really sure what the rub is.

It's perfect when you're traveling. I'm in Berlin right now, and it's like a hot men bonanza on Grindr. I go to Paris tomorrow and will continue with my research.
