I’m Ditching Tinder for Bars
Maybe I am a little old-fashioned or out of touch, but I feel more connected as I unplug.
The internet is a great tool for many different vices, especially for scoring casual sex. I love the internet. I am highly addicted and plugged in virtually all my waking hours. It’s my soap box, my main source of information, and where I view and archive juicy pornographic photos. I have been online for just over half of my 29 years, but have only recently learned to be more efficient and selective in how I use it. No more cat videos. Well, maybe a few, but I try to focus on expanding my mind and keeping up on current events. That being said, I also have carnal urges that lured me into the crazy world of Internet cruising. The plethora of people to peruse online opened up a whole buffet of potential sex partners.
Every time I have moved cross-country to a new city, social media has been my crutch to meet people. In 2005, I moved to Boulder, CO to escape a biker gang that was threatening to murder me. The bikers eventually apologized and said “no hard feelings,” but I said to hell with it, bought my ticket, and took the ride. In my new hometown, I used Myspace to find new friends. I ended up meeting up with some of them, driving my shitty old Subaru into the suburbs of Denver for rendezvous. If they were charming, I would see them again, and we would definitely have sex.
The Internet made it much easier to meet people outside my social circle. It also made it possible for me to date several people at once without anyone being any the wiser. This would never have been an option in the small town that I had left behind.
