Online dating started right when computers did, oh how much we would invest to get our heart going on. The dating swiping is the ever so boring and yet ever so needed activity that we are doing possibly everywhere, classrooms, urinals, bath tubs, at the metro, in the cab, at the bar, at house parties. And yet, the huge gigantic industry is filled with its own poison that is quietly corroding itself. Shallow profiles and too many advertisements, sponsored posts, lowest satisfaction scores, horrible meet ups, ugly dick pics and slow sluggish conversations has made the whole scene incredibly disgusting and exhausting.
We live in a dreadful social situation we want love and attention, gags and jokes, hook ups and sometimes breakups. But, we do not want to indulge in ten mile long conversations. We do not need to be our own wing men at bars, we do not like blind dates and we hate the idea of flirting around with random strangers because it might qualify as harassment and ooo baby harassing is bad.
Oh, don’t we all wish that dating app makers knew this?
Want: Consent is good on the other hand, sex is good, dating is good, texting some times is good.
What we do not want: DickPic senders, ditchers and no show dates, empty DM’s, spammy profiles, uncles posing as 24 year old boys, boys posing as girls to find lesbian females to please their freaking fantasies, rude people, misogynist men, showered men and women, uncertain people and confused gentry.
Blockchain changes things and that gives me hope.
All of them are working on the problem of Identity fraud. Also, date rape, although it should not be a problem, people should be educated and decent enough, but well, people do not know their limits now, do they?
There are plenty of blockchain builders working on making dating apps better, but there are high hopes on Luna. It is a smart one, it uses Psychometrics and machine learning.
There is a people powered software, the kind that learns from the interactions and makes them better. Oh, yes, we need to teach people how to date! So important.
But more than teaching people and learning what goes in to a good date, it is important that our love-sex lives are not being monetized. These messages from our sponsors and these sponsored posts are getting on my nerves now. The tokenization of the apps removes this issue from blockchain, which is why i am all in for it!
I want my dating apps, my way! Don’t you?
