The Dangers of Convenient Sex Unfortunately, much like a casino app in the hands of a compulsive gambler, those struggling with sexual addiction and similar sexual problems see sex finder apps as the equivalent of crack cocaine. Rico's story aside, sex finder apps have for most healthy people generated a reliable new source of casual romantic and sexual encounters, offering a readily available, mostly free source of brief sexual encounters and connection. One important recommendation for anyone choosing to enter the "friend finder" world is to make sure they have genuine clarity about what it is they want.
And, as with all addictions, whether to substances or behaviors, the consequences to the active abuser can be profound. If you're devoted to finding a spouse or long-term partner, a traditional dating website is probably a much better option than Blendr.
Rico, a 32-year-old gay guy, had this to say about his experience: Just after a friend introduced me to Grindr, by the end of the first week, without giving it much thought, I'd had three previously unknown sex partners over to my place. If you are in a primary relationship and looking to cheat -- apps likely are your fastest route to sex and potential relationship problems.
In a heartbeat Grindr became my #1 distraction from stress, tedium, and loneliness, but it also quickly replaced dating and most of my social life. But do remember to 'play safe', especially if you're planning to keep this secret from a spouse.
This entire genre of apps has in effect turned your local dog park, museum, mall, and crowded train station into a gigantic "singles" bar (though not everyone is single). And if you have traditionally been the kind of person too shy to make the first move -- no worries, as long as your app is open it is actively signaling your availability, so it won't be long before someone finds you. And just as bad, two guys I genuinely liked dating dumped me when they found me cruising Grindr while they were in the other room making dinner or on the phone. But I still haven't been able to put the thing away and stay away.
Thanks to smartphone apps, seeking and finding fast hot casual sex has become, much like real estate, all about location. Before long using the app started to take over whatever free time I had.
The more sizable and interesting the nearby crowd, the better your shot at finding partners. I found myself leaving the app on all the time and big surprise, my life quickly became all about the search for sex.
