Hence there are a lot of guys on there that are after one thing and one thing only.
On the ‘looking for love’ scale, if you go onto it with low expectations when it does happen (and I know that it has) then it’s a pleasant surprise. Now I fully accept that was being prejudiced having that view and I took the plunge some months ago and signed myself up with an account.
I gave it up for two years when I was with my boyfriend and didn’t miss it but now that I’m single again it does become a little habit. Grindr sells itself as “the best gay dating app” and yes as far as technology goes it is the simpler of the apps out there.
It simply shows 1 profile picture for you, shows you people around you and lets you input basic information about who you are and what you are looking for.
I currently pay for Grindr “xtra” (because I’m sad like that) and it basically gets you unlimited blocking capability and a much larger list of guys to view.
I’m undecided if it’s worth paying the extra few pound for.
Most western men I met were either gay, in a relationship or only interested in Japanese women.
I did find Japanese guys very attractive, but they would never approach me, being notoriously shy around foreign women.
I could sometimes detect a flicker of interest, at most, before they ran away. From what I gathered from my Japanese girlfriends, it seemed to involve a lot of passiveness, indirect communication, text messaging, misunderstandings and patience.
After wasting months subtly pursuing a guy at work only to discover he had a girlfriend, I quit the Japanese way – and bento making, also described by my friends as a boyfriend magnet in Japan.
Two of my single western guy friends suggested online dating – as long as I wasn’t looking for anything serious.
