"Friends of mine always used to hope that we would get together, but I always knew there was nothing but friendship," Julia says.
Having regular, no-strings-attached sex with someone you're not romantically involved with has become such a cultural phenomenon that it's acquired a name --"friends with benefits." (Others call it "bed buddies," or use more explicit terms.) For Julia and Steve, it worked out well -- the "benefits" part of their friendship ended when she met the man who is now her husband, but they're still close, and get together for dinner when he's in town. Can "friends with benefits" really benefit both parties, or is there usually unexpected emotional fallout?
When you turn this same skill towards the Internet, you have the advantage of being able to quickly filter out all the randomness, invested time that might go nowhere, and flakejobs. Tinder brought mainstream consciousness to the ease of casual hookups, simplifying internet sex dating to a swipe on your phone.
This was golden for a year or two until women started using it for ego gratification, creating accounts to get lots of virtual praise from guys who approve of their looks, with no intention of hooking up or ever dating.
