ForRealNoReally saidGindr + not having cell phone is probably why I haven't had sex in three years.Neither are required for going to a gay bar, where it's much easier to get laid.
Agreed, bars are mostly how I got laid, I never used my cell phone for that purpose. And I've had one since 1990.
Well, maybe used indirectly. I'd place my flip-phone and Palm PDA on the bar, and periodically check them, but not get buried in them. Smart phones didn't exist, and cell phones and PDAs were still a bit of a novelty.
They were like bait at a gay bar. Guys saw them, when not too many owned them, and figured I was rich, smart, and/or trendy (all erroneous). Gave them an opening line they could use on me. "Hey, what's that thing?" Beautiful gimmick, the guys came to me, I didn't have to cruise at all, at which I'm very bad.
So in that sense I used cell phones to meet guys. But not through apps. By the time those came along I already had a husband.
