When we started out we simply displayed a list of popular chat rooms with no registration requirement. As our traffic grew, we added chat rooms of our own. However, in addition to our British chatters we have a large number of visitors from the United States, Ireland, Australia and Canada. We understand that without visitors like you, our rooms would be empty.At first, we had enough space for a couple of dozen users. You should not have any trouble getting into a free chat room since our main forums do not require any downloads. Basically to start using Blendr and Grindr all you need to do is enter some basic details about yourself, maybe upload a photo if you’re keen and your phone uses your current location to search for other single ‘candidates’ who might either appeal to your interests; or are simply within a certain radius and up for a shag. Which is why I was so shocked to find that my girlfriends who are all intelligent, educated, beautiful women would be using this ‘geo-location’ technology to attract a potential mate. In fact I have always considered myself one of the more open minded and liberal members of my friendship group.
And the truth is if I’m not dating someone, I genuinely miss that interaction.
I hate not having someone to exchange witticism’s with or to share photo’s or stories of my day.
And so I had a thought, is this really any different than chatting to a complete stranger at a bar, or in a cafe?
Our mobile phones these days are so much at the centre of our social worlds it kinda makes sense that they are used as a dating tool.
by GENEVIEVE LISTON A number of my girlfriends are on Blendr. The way you are looking at your computer after reading this statement is exactly how I reacted when they told me at dinner the other night.
