Straight only camchat
They actually market themselves on the thoroughness of their interrogations: What are your favorite sports, your taste in movies, your eye color?
They have it all down to a science, selling their sites on that old adage, "Similars attract." On Grindr, you are permitted to write a 120-character profile and upload a photo, and that's pretty much all you get to spark that digital First Look Across the Room.
Now the tech visionary who founded Grindr is launching a version for straight people. I'd be milling around a trendy Sunset Boulevard dive, or lounging in a French Roast restaurant about a block from where I live in Manhattan. The photos came in a few varieties: guys trying hard to look really bored though super-cool; nude, hirsute torsos; guys doing that ridiculous bathroom-mirror self-portrait in which the subject always looks surprised even though he himself has just snapped the shot.To be a grinder, unlike with or e Harmony or Ok Cupid or any of the other doddering old i Date sites, you need register no name, no password—not even a screen name.Those other sites are proud of asking for massive detail.Together the sex-crazed and lonely hearts and the rest were building a digital neighborhood on top of their physical one.
Maybe, with Blendr, it really could grow to include Everybody.The ladies certainly wouldn't treat Chat the same way; they'd be euphemistic and vaguely lyrical (I hoped) while the males were doing something close to grunting. From a female standpoint, that might be seen as one romantic step away from being spirited into a van.
