Since I’ve been in a serious relationship with my boyfriend Doug for nearly two years now, Tinder has never been necessary to me.
Still, I’ve always found it curious how the app has the tagline “It’s How People Meet,” so different from other dating apps, which put the focus on love and connection and building relationships.
Some even allowed me to exist on a social space without talking to them! Out of the 125 messages I received, about 40 asked me what my research was about. And then he decided that I was a slut for not answering him. Someone wondered if I was into spanking and hair-pulling.
Mary Jane Minkin, clinical professor of obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive sciences at Yale School of Medicine, tells Buzz Feed Health.
"It's important to talk about sperm first, because people might not know that there can be thousands or even millions of these little guys in just one drop of semen," Minkin says. Just to give some context, Minkin says, a "low sperm count" is anything less than 20 million sperm per 1 m L of semen — and 10 or 15 million per 1 m L is still a lot of sperm.
For so many of my single friends, Tinder has become a necessary evil.
Yes, it’s full of complete assholes begging for nudes from the get-go, but you know, a girl will still hold out for the right person amid a slushpile of grunted boob requests.
