What I don’t like about the reselling to human beings is giving out my actual phone number to negotiate prices and setting up meets to make the exchange.In most cases, I will never interact with these people again, but the thought of somebody I don’t know having the same number that I call my “Momma” with doesn’t sit well with me.As Wade reports, one-third of students say that their intimate relationships have been “traumatic” or “very difficult to handle.” One in four female respondents to the Online College Social Life Survey reported being victimized in some way, some more than once.Wade notes that students are less happy and healthy than they were even just 10 or 20 years ago, and surmises that “the sexual environment on college campuses is part of why.” As Wade explains when describing a difference between her research findings and those in Katherine Bogle’s 2008 book, , “It may be that dating culture isn’t as strong as it was almost a decade ago. We know they sometimes do.” Yet, as Wade points out, it’s important to remember what this mean.

Tinder is causing a 'Dating Apocalypse.' That's right, this simple dating app is causing changes in human mating and dating behavior, the likes of which we've never seen before... Health Department and read their conclusion that Tinder is one cause of the nation-wide rise in STDs. You simply download the app to your smart phone, link to your Facebook account, choose up to six photos of yourself, and write a brief bio. You swipe left if you don't like them and swipe right if you do. But, is it just a hook-up app for the 'hit-it-and-quit-it' culture, or is it something more? And when you are matched, starting conversations is easier. Tinder is more efficient because it doesn't require answering a long series of questions to find the best matches for you. The decision-making process involved in using Tinder is both rational and emotional. And, if you use it, you'll probably find a match who swiped right to convince you to hook up with them. But it makes finding meaningful relationships easier as well.

Since then, it’s possible that hookup culture has become more dominant and devious.
Hookup sex is fast, uncaring, unthinking, perfunctory.
It has a lot less to do with excitement or attraction than with checking a box on a list of tasks, like homework or laundry.
I’m a fan of buying and selling things on Craigslist…and all the other 50-eleven “resell your stuff” apps.
