Our ability to find like-minded folk to fornicate with is incredibly convenient. In what ways have dating apps helped or hindered our lives? Hooking up for no-strings-attached fun was definitely happening long before Tinder, Grindr and even the invention of the internet. But, social media has definitely opened many doors in terms of ease of access.
With these apps and to a lesser extent, online dating sites setting up a meeting between you and another person happens fast. Living in this hookup culture makes us a lot more relaxed about engaging in casual sex, bringing about a change in attitude toward relationships and monogamy.
Grindr and Blued have enabled casual sex and relationships in the gay community worldwide. The reach of these apps is felt especially in countries where homosexuality is illegal. In India, Afghanistan and Pakistan, people looking for same-sex relationships existed in covert groups that used public restrooms, bathhouses and parks as pick-up locations.
Without having the freedom of LGBT-friendly governments and societies, not to mention gay bars to meet others, dating apps have opened up the opportunities and brought attention to the struggle for equality. So now, more people are meeting like-minded individuals for anonymous encounters. More of us are connecting with strangers to form short-term sexual flings.
