O ne defining feature of the modern gay experience is using dating apps. It makes it a lot easier to put yourself out there and meet new people, but it takes away the meet-cute charm of bumping into the love of your life at Starbucks. Dare we say that Tinder is even more complicated for gay people?
We dare. Straight people are always surrounded by other straight people, which means they have a lot of romantic options. For others like me — JacobTinder takes away some of the charm of meeting people organically. I like the idea of running into the love of my life in a cafe.
I daydream about crushing on a guy for a few weeks, Friends discreet ltr texting him and then striking up a romance. I cannot imagine a better place to meet my future husband than a Lady Gaga concert. But when I express frustration with boys or my love life, the easy and immediate answer is to just get a Tinder.
Gay guys are really in short supply in this world. Tinder would make it easier to meet other gay guys, but it would make me miss out on what I think of as an essential part of young love. For straight people, Tinder might be a convenient way to meet new people or arrange an easy hookup. But how am I supposed to feel knowing that the odds of me meeting just any gay person are slim, much less the love of my life?
As a gay guy, I feel like that choice has already been made for me. I get what Jacob means about wanting to meet people in real life, but as a generally anxious person, I like that technology that allows me to avoid talking to other humans is readily available. I like that I can find someone from the comfort of my couch before I head out into the real world to actually get to know them.
Not everyone co-writes a biweekly column with their orientation in the title. I can guess, based on her boots and if she wears hats. I can guess, based on which social activism causes she supports. Because the beauty of Tinder is that you only see girls who are into girls. No more guessing. But then I find the next problem — swiping through every queer woman within a three-mile radius. I know a lot of queer women, sure. Do straight people have this problem? Please note All comments are eligible for publication in The News-Letter.
