Are there any apps more shallow than Tinder? Or is anyone here planning to develop one already?

No descriptions (pick-up lines, beliefs, etc.) or anything. Just pictures and maybe some shit like height, weight, component sizes, etc. If you like each other for shallow and purely physical reasons, you meet up, have sex, and never talk to each other again. Something like that.

There are risks of getting killed but as long as they don't ask you what your zodiac sign is and engage in small talk, it's all good.

    This sounds brilliant. If I were an app developer I would instantly contribute, maybe I can help in a different way 📌

    Sorry I just have to:
    "There are risks of getting killed but as long as they don't ask you what your zodiac sign is and engage in small talk, it's all good."

    "(...)and engage in small talk."

    "(...)small talk(...)"

    trust me, if anyone tries to engage me with small talk, he will get straight up syntax error on their face

    Which merged with HotOrNot a while ago..

    > is anyone here planning to develop one already?

    Kinda..

    Just from research I've done, it looks like it would make the world a worse place for those at the bottom.

    I'm not sure I want to make that many people unhappy.

    A Oppenheimer moment..

    @Nanos Ah, I've been expecting you, man. 😄

    I tried Badoo and it's a bit OkCupid-ish. So far I had the most success with Tinder. I met one person from OkCupid and another one from FCupid who turned out to be a long term friend.

    But I am not looking for friendships or deeper relationships these days. I'm pretty content with the ones I have and I know some people who are only looking for quick and hassle-free hookups. No relationship expectations. There's definitely a market for this. I thought about getting an escort but it's too expensive.

    Local Yahoo Chatrooms used to be ideal.

    One of the issues with designing an app for this purpose, is where do you find folk willing to run the servers in countries where the law isn't going to shut you down and jail your ass because bad people are using the service ?

    It's one thing to write an app, its another to wait for someone to host it..

    I'm assuming you can't be jailed for writing such an app these days, can you ?

    @rutee07 these are actually one of these:

    (...) and [...] are valid ;)

    @Nanos Why will you be jailed? Anyway, @oreru's example seem to be the kind of thing I'm looking for. I'll let you know if I get good results.

    @DubbaThony I was joking. Hehe.

    You mean like a Grindr for straight people?

    I'm guess youze guys are str8, because here on the gay side of the fence there are more hookup apps than you can shake a... shake... erm... well Jesus Fuck, there's a ton of hookup apps. I was at one point signed onto so many that one weekend from when I arrived home on Friday until late Sunday evening I was signed in and chatting. I enjoyed chatting w/guys all over the world. I wish I could say I met some stellar fellows here in Seattle, but they all seemed to be somewhere else, mentally. But, that said... I do have some very fond memories...

    @devfrey @bols59 What are these apps? Straight game is full of shit, you can't be too straightforward, otherwise people think you're an escort or something.

    I hear for some its a passing phase, so if I'm a friend of theirs, I could be in the right place at the right time, sometime in the future. :-)

    No small talk, showing no interest in the person's character? Sounds perfect to me!

    Include a feature to route you to the nearest place you can buy condoms. And possibly the next place you can get tested for STDs, too.

    @CoffeeNcode

    I'd advise getting you/them tested before sex. :-)

    I think you can buy portable testing kits these days..

    Pregnancy is also a mayor issue to think about..

    The failure rate of different condoms is another..

    Talking of which, you can get them made to measure so to speak:

    @Nanos

    Note, some things are rather difficult to test for, and require more of an examination of the person to determine the risk, such as herpes.

    And even then..

    > It is possible to contract genital herpes even

    > if your partner does not show symptoms.

    > genital HSV-1 and HSV-2 can still be

    > contracted while using a condom.

    If someone becomes infected before you, tests may not show up a result for some months.

    I'm reminded of someone I chatted to online for a while, but never met in person, who after several months admitted to sex with new partners and not telling them they had herpes.

    Considering they worked in the medical field, you'd think they would have stronger ethics.

    It's hazardous out there.

    @rutee07 I don't have a flat phone, so I can, from memory, give you the websites names I can remember. I don't think I'm registered on any of them, but if you find a profile that matches my name here, it's me. Which of course means any pictures of a prurient, proctological, cognitive reconfiguration involving clothespins [saying 'my nips are hard wired' here would mean nothing to you guys] can be copied and posted here. So, with the above caveat firmly in place, I present to you: squirt.org, bear411, bbrt, silverdaddies, adam4adam, motherless... I hope that suffices, and that it answers your question. Cheers...

    I'm surprised that another one of my stupid ideas even received any upvotes. I was just bored shitless because our server at work was down. Apparently, some people actually find this idea interesting. Lol.
