Are We Becoming a Hook Up Generation?

post image

Many people in Canada are starting to ask a very valid question and that is are we becoming a hook up generation? What they mean by that is are we becoming a generation that is only interested in hooking up with partners for a casual night of sex only, abandoning the more traditional dating system.

Old Style Dating

Before the days of the internet, couples would first meet by accident in a supermarket or laundromat, introduce themselves and start to date or they would be introduced to each other by a mutual friend or in a nightclub or bar. Once introduced, if they seemed to get on, they may arrange a date and perhaps follow that with another date. After three or four dates the relationship may grow into one that involved sex.

Dating Today

Although the traditional method of dating does still exist, it is becoming rarer and rarer. One of the reasons for this dwindling in the traditional dating system is the introduction of not just dating sites but also what can be termed as hook up sites which specifically exist to introduce couples who want casual sex without the past necessity of having to go on several dates first.

Original Dating Sites

Dating sites have now been on the internet for several years and had become very popular. The sites first became popular for use by men who were tired of waiting for chance meetings or introductions to women. Later they also became popular with women as well, once they realized that the sites offered discretion however, in the vast majority of cases, these were sites that were meant to introduce couples for the traditional dating system, not for nights of no-strings-attached sex. It soon became clear though that people were using these sites in the hope of finding casual sex and that prompted the founding of hook up dating sites like first, Adult Friend Finder (AFF) and  later Tinder plus others.

Adult Friend Finder

AFF was founded in 1996 and has continuously grown in popularity, especially in the USA, Canada and the UK. The site was founded with the sole intention of introducing individuals, couples or groups of any sex or any sexual orientation, to other like-minded people to share their sexual preferences. The site requires a minimum of joining procedures in order to allow visitors to quickly get into the action which the site encourages its members to share. It was perhaps the rapid success of this site that prompted other, similar sites to open.

Tinder

Tinder is one of these more recent sites and was founded in 2012 and in that short time has grown to become the largest online dating site with more than 50 million visitors each month. Although one of the reasons for this popularity is that it boasts to be for people to meet either for traditional romances or for casual hook ups but, it is clearly orientated more to those looking for casual hook ups than it is to romantic liaisons.

Growing Trend

The increasing popularity of these hook–up sites would certainly indicate that a growing number of people in Canada and elsewhere, are becoming more interested in casual hook ups than they are in meaningful relationships but the question is, is this just a fad or is it becoming the new traditional way od dating?

Age

Indications would show that although the older among us may not be so fixated on easy hook-ups, the younger ones are. One of the reasons for this is probably the fact that the hook-ups sites have appeared more recently but figures show that the average age of hook-up site members is younger than the more traditional dating sites. However, figures can be deceiving as Tinder for instance, actively encourage younger members by charging those that are over 30 years of age, double the membership fees.

Conclusion

If we have not already become a hook up generation then we soon will be. The fact that now, hook ups have become easy from the day we want to start sexual activity, makes it something that the young will want to take advantage of, at least until they think they are ready to settle down, if they ever do.

Is casual sex as easy as ordering a pizza?

post image

Well, the very fact that we are going to compare casual sex with ordering a pizza does tell you that it (hook up, casual sex) is quite easy nowadays. But is it as easy as having a pizza delivered anywhere anytime within just a few minutes of having the right ‘mood’? Well, the answer is sadly no as this is casual sex, not prostitution or escort service where you can ‘order’ sex anytime you want. But before you get disappointed, here’s the thing- getting casual sex might not be as easy as ordering a pizza but it surely is as easy as going to a cafe restaurant, choosing your dish from the menu and then enjoying it to the fullest of contentment only this time (in casual sex), you don’t pay a single penny. Believe it or not, the hook-up culture is on the rise and when i say it, I mean you can easily find a local horny girl in Sweden or Norway who doesn’t give a shit about what you feel about her but really does want to satisfy her self. Talking from my personal experience, you can get to befriend ravishing Scandinavian beauties on apps like C-Date (See more on C-date Norge and C-Date Sverige here!). Some of them would just talk while the rest would be too shy to share anything or show up for the decided ‘hook up’ but there are a few girls who do not shy away from exploring their dirty naughty side at all. How should one go about if they want to have a causal sex and just fuck without dealing with the tears and drama of a relationship? First of all, make an account on C-Date and then browse through the female members, short listing and liking a few members out of the whole grid. Now you might want to put in an attractive and hot photo of yourself for display, along with something interesting about you that might impress girls at first sight. And  you are ready to go...all you need to do is text a girl and wait for her response and you can take it from there to the next level. Now if the girl is like minded and has no issues in having casual sex with you, great, you just got laid and hooked up. All you need is a safe and discrete place to unleash each other’s dark side and the deepest sexual desires for a satisfying casual sex. Whether it is a one night stand, a fuck buddy relation or a multiple occasion casual sex scenario- make sure you respect the other person and respect their choices as well as desires. It’s easy to get a girl for casual sex in C-Date but you too need to be up for it. Finding a fling or having casual sex is not as tough as it might have been a few years back. After the introduction of dating apps and websites, you can now get laid with a stranger as early as you would like- easy, clean, discrete and completely safe; what else could you want? [...]

Free Dating Apps in Canada

post image

Canada, is feeling a surge of free online dating apps as couples change how they meet and interact. What options (see http://ca.dating-navigator.net) are available for Canadian singles looking for Mr or Mrs Right or just someone to spend the night? Tinder changed everything when it did what no other app could and broke into the collage scene. It changed the face of dating app, from old lonely people, to trendy collage kids looking for no strings attached sex. Are these prejudice fair? Of course not, but no one brags about the girl or guy they banged from EHarmony. A Tinder date, has made its way into the English lexicon and it has been copied by a whole new generation of proximity dating services. Grindr, is the LGBT equivalent of Tinder, kind of. The LGBT community is, how I should put this? A bit more direct than their heterosexual counterpart. Grinder has more of a sexual focuses. The app only gives you about 200 characters to use in the about me section, and the majority of profiles use this space, to describe what they want put where. As a bisexual man, with an open minded wife who also gets a kick out of the occasional stranger in the bedroom. I have a unique perspective of how online dating works on both sides of the fence. Grinder exists to facilitate casual unconditional intercourse. Okcupid, is populated by users looking for a significant other with at least a trickle of commitment. It has a location based app, which allows potentials to meet up over coffee or go on a romantic walk. You know, all that cute shit couples do when falling in love. The site has an algorithm for matching partners, implying that more than just good looks draws people together. I haven’t mentioned that it is one of the biggest online dating apps out there. It's has 30 million active users, with a million logging in every day. So if there is a one in a million chance someone would date you; you still have thirty people, or a person every day, to choose from. The apps biggest selling point is also it greatest down fall. When you sign up for the app, after filling out your profile, you answer a raft of multiple choice questions. The app uses your answers to this to find you a match. But people are aware that this is how the app works, and answer the question how their ideal match would, not honestly. This leads to pairing with people who are only pretending to be like you and actually nothing like you. Match, was one of the original dating sites to gain any kind of traction. It was first established in the United States in 1995 and was extended to the UK in 2001. The average age of users places both men and woman between 25 -30 years. The site offers users enough text boxes to really pump their profile with information, which, although exaggerated and sugar-coated, helps people find prospective matches. The site also runs a number of singles events around the country, if you want to take the online out of online dating. Did I mention, that the app is used by 60 million users? That is massive, if dating is a numbers game then Match is where it happens. Choosing the right online dating platform is all about what you are looking for. Decided if you are after a fling or a soul mate and jump on the appropriate platform. They are a sign of the times and you sure can’t beat them. [...]
