One blogger recently ran an Ok Cupid experiment for which he set up five fake male and five fake female profiles.After a week, all of the women had received at least one message, the most attractive women had received hundreds, but several of the men remained un-contacted.He reviewed the extent to which they used apps like Grindr and SCRUFF, which have become increasingly popular in the LGBT community in the past several years.They found that 22 percent of the people surveyed found sexual partners through browser-based dating sites, while 17 percent said they only met other men through apps.After ignoring it repeatedly, Tweten finally wrote back, “No.”His response: “WHY THE FUCK NOT? “If we don't respond, they come back and say, ‘you're a whore.’ If we do respond, we get yelled at and called names.
