    It's called Blendr. Seriously, this is not a joke. I'm guessing the ratio of men to women on this thing will be 100:1

    Haha.

    Aren't they a little late to the game? And what girl is going to use this to hookup?

    "Backdoor, beauty?"

    As a friend of mine said, this is going to lead to a lot of lawsuits. How are straight people gonna deal with the stalking and sexual harassment?

    I can see it now. Instead of approaching girls at the clubs, guys will test the waters by sending a blendr message first. Might make rejection a little less humiliating than if she says "hell no" right to their face.

    My general understanding is that a lot of single girls, even if they do want casual sex with some guy they meet at some bar, don't want the guy to know sex is a given or that it will automatically happen. Girls have to know that if they're on this app and a guy approaches them because they saw them online they're telling them sex is a given.

    All of my str8 friends kept asking me when Grindr would come out for straight people, so I posted this on my Facebook this morning when I heard about it. One guy installed it immediately and said, no matter how much he expanded the search, he saw ONE woman. I guess the Blendr admins say they have a way to encourage female participation, but I'll believe it when I see it.

    Just checked it out. You can put in a lot more personal information so I guess they're trying to make it look like a regular dating app -- and teasing us with hot guys that are straight (grass is always greener).

    I read about a straight Grindr in some tech magazine a while ago, Im not sure if it was this Blendr but the article said that basically the women would be able to see the men, but the men couldnt see the women, to avoid stalking and shiz. It also said the women could leave reviews of the men that only other women could view.

    That's a bunch of bullshit. I've been stalked by more straight women than gay men by a long shot.


    But womens stalking cant turn into actual rape, unless theres a curious blend of rohypnol and viagra involved

    Apparently you can select your orientation in the app. There are some gays on it in my area. I like being able to put in interests, profession, etc. and being able to search for people with similar interests.

    Like Grindr, it has a GPS setting so you can tell how close or far someone is. In this app, you can control the distance information, from exact to general distances.

    You can also control who can see you by sex, age range, and orientation.

    Less of a hookup app than Grindr. So far I like it.

    Well I'm dragging this bitch up!

    I prefer blendr to grindr, guys actually want to have conversations on it and the guys are more attractive, plus most of them are clothed.

    I'm actually getting conversations outta people. it's awesome!
