Dating sites just for sex
We met on a dating app and it’s less a product of my creativity and more a product of my generation.
I’m a millennial and that’s how we meet each other.” (The special is funny and you should watch it.)Statistically speaking, there’s plenty of evidence that dating apps work—especially for those among us whose endgame is meeting a long-term partner.
While I was primarily looking for love, I also enjoyed the app as an activity.
From what I've been told by women currently using the app, however, I was a rarity, as I was actively seeking a substantial relationship.
I don't understand (and have never understood) the idea behind “just dating.” Like, what does “just dating” even mean? Doesn't dating lead to relationships, and doesn't the right relationship lead to love?
The fact that a guy won't flat out say he's looking for love is a red flag.
