Wisconsin hookup chatrooms
Since the days of hankie codes and tearoom trades, hookup culture has always been part of gay identity. It meant semi-anonymous sex was no longer dirty, scary or shameful. Social historians believe that apps like Grindr have finally liberated LGBTQ youth from the internalized homophobia that haunted past generations.
Hookups were once the alternative to serious dating. Chatting with your date about whether or not it’s time to delete dating apps used to be the first sign that your relationship had achieved “serious.” Now, they’re not just for single people anymore.
I’m amazed at the number of committed-ish couples I know who are both active on apps, without monogamy and fidelity being called into question.
I suspect that underneath that need for newness is the old idea that the grass is always greener elsewhere.
It’s fascinating to me that 16 percent of Tinder users have also downloaded Grindr at least once. More specifically, looking for a bisexual threesome? Imagine having Grindr refuse to remove the counterfeit profile until you sued for defamation.
Is it any wonder that one-third of the gay bars in America have closed since Grindr launched in 2009? There are definitely some human anthropology lessons emerging here, as social technologies are creating entirely new social behaviors.
When Grindr burst on the scene in March 2009, online cruising leapt from laptop computers to the palm of your hand.
If you believe the hype, gay romance died with the very first download.
Seeing who your ex- or current partner claims to be, and how they market themselves on their Grindr profile, can feel like you never really knew them at all – or, more likely, they never knew themselves and still don’t.
Hookup apps have been blamed for promiscuity, sexual addiction, increased sexually transmitted infections, and the spread of HIV.
