Not something serious right off the bat. But okay with things getting there eventually, if we get along well. 24, female

I say go on dates with the best intention to make a genuine connection and see how things go from there. A lot of ppl are cool to get to know regardless if there is chemistry or not

@PwC1- haha. I agree. Me too.I hate it when some people pretend that they like you, talk to you for a couple of weeks, and grow cold or worse delete you. They should save them and me the time they wasted making no progress what so ever.

Previously had been for hookups, but now am wanting to find someone I can genuinely see dating/marrying. A lot of people shit on then but IMO, it's just easier to use the apps because you can screen a lot more efficiently for the qualities you're looking for (ambitious, like-minded etc)

I'd rather know going into the date that whoever I'm going out has potential to go further through pre-establishing those characteristics, rather than just "we get along" a la more traditional dating. 25/m, by the way

Used Tinder since like 2010 in college when it was mostly hookups but soon went abroad where it was a totally different scene. From there on I've only used it to date. It ranges from casual with little in common to something wonderful. I think the stigma is mostly gone but just my opinion 23m

I'm curious what the gentlemen on dating apps are looking for. I ask them upfront, and I've been getting "I don't know/I don't have a specific plan"

That's what I would say if someone asked me though

EY2 did you mean it?

Good for you! I'm trying to figure out when a good time to bring that up would be

Just playing the game 27 m

PWC1- haha. I guess i am practicing too, and trying to juggle dating with crazy travel and work schedules. It's hard. 26 M. Where you from?

Okay for the last time - the fact that Cities tend to have higher crime (which has been declining over the years ) is a function of what cities are and what they attract - big populations (people moving here for opportunities), social/economic variations resulting in higher possibilities of crime. Cities also tend to have a more diverse demographic than smaller towns, suburbs which tend to have less economic and social diversity. If you have to use crime as a metric for comparison....(contd.)
