Then five months ago, a colleague introduced me to Tinder, and I logged on. I was just curious to see how it worked and how men initiate conversations with other men. I was amazed that every second person I was swiping right on matched with me. I had several conversations with many men, but none clicked. Then one day, I happened to meet someone very interesting. Soon numbers were exchanged and we talked about cars, bikes, politics, sports and video games.
Confessions of a Delhi girl using Tinder -
All the world's on Tinder, and all the men and women merely playing their own dating game. Swipe left, swipe right. How different can it be? Just because you're in a different city, doesn't mean things change. Tinder is the same. And so are the people on it. How does it matter if it's Delhi or Bengaluru, right? Turns out, quite a lot. I moved here for college and haven't left since.
Most women are reluctant to report matches from dating apps fearing retribution, which leaves the assaulters free to pursue others. While apps like Tinder and Hinge have helped liberate women by removing, even if to a small degree, the stigma attached to casual sex, one hard truth is becoming increasingly clear: Women are getting assaulted on their dates and see no recourse in the organisations that set them up. Meghna, 25, of Delhi told ThePrint about a terrifying experience she had on Tinder a couple of years ago. Going through a troubled time in her life, Meghna logged into the app as a distraction and matched with a man who was into BDSM — a form of erotic roleplaying that deals with bondage, discipline, dominance and submission. When Meghna tried to leave, the man caught hold of her hand, blocked the door, and tried to placate her. Meghna said the ordeal left her in shock.
