There’s now a dating app which is essentially S&M Tinder.
Whiplr is the mobile dating service for those who find Tinder a bit, well, vanilla.
I walk home and ready myself for another night warming my own sheets without company.
Tinder may work for some, but it's not the right dating app for a chubby chap in his thirties...
I show a male friend the app, just to explain how it works. I end up with a choice of five for a date on Friday night.He immediately starts riffling through my possible matches. It's only after a small amount of conversation with some of my matches that I realise my i Phone thinks it's in Texas. It's far lower than what I'd expect on a normal dating site.So one key advantage of the site is that you really can get access to a great many people.Another, is that nearly everybody has a good selection of photos on their profile.
I know that it's imperative I ignore the voice in my head telling me I'm a failure: a man who can't even get a date on an app that's supposedly designed for casual sexaholics. Sunday I meet the lady for drinks on the Southbank.
