And hey, if you’re going to post a mirror selfie, Things got slightly uncomfortable and super awkward when my friends’ brothers started showing up, I had to go back and reset the age restriction to avoid feeling unholy and somewhat pedophiliac. Save for a few, I was pleasantly surprised by most of the men I spoke to over the app.
A chivalrous friend had sent it to my sister, accompanied with a screenshot in matter of fact tone that did not seem to question why he was on there himself but somehow put my A lot had changed over the past few years.
A decade ago, the word “boyfriend” was not only frowned upon but a disgraceful label for men and women alike. I see it in captions, in conversations and in carelessly written tweets.
You were “friends” that were practically inseparable, everybody knew there was more than meets the eye but no one used that word to link you to your significant other. Boyfriend and girlfriend concept had finally undergone the test of time. Most people I know of have taken this simple five-step course of relationship: Friends – Really good friends – Friends who knew everything about you- Friends who ask you to be their girlfriend – Relationship A walk down memory lane would end you somewhere on Orkut, where many a love stories commenced in the crisp summer of ’05 but Tinder came with a certain undertone.
When curiosity claimed the best of me, I finally decided to see what the fuss was about.
If I were looking for a significant other, I wouldn’t entirely rule out dating apps.
Intellectual stimulation was plentiful, meaningful conversations from sociology to psychology, I had a good fix of it all. Make new friends in Pakistan and start dating them.Waplog is the best social network to meet new people.Some asked for Snapchat IDs to be forthright (and verify your legitimacy), others thought it was fair to exchange Whatsapp numbers or a quick Skype chat (perhaps even to reassure you of their own identity) and if you refused or told them it was too soon, they shrugged it off instead of unmatching you like they rightfully should. It’s true that Tinder was practically invented for a quickie, which explains how the app crashes ever so often when you’re chatting; it isn’t designed for theories on quantum physics.When push came to shove, one guy politely asked if we could remain in touch and I obliged with my twitter handle. Having said that, not everybody has the luxury of having multiple friends circles in the same city.So, hop on and get busy swipin’, who knows your prince charming is waiting in line…And who cares if he’s not?
