I go on Grindr looking to make friends who could, at least potentially, be sex partners, but I like to do the friend thing before the sex." Grindr is an app designed and marketed to facilitate hookups, but some people have found friends, lovers, and husbands on the app (usually after hooking up first)., Tinder is the harbinger of today's hookup-fueled "dating apocalypse."

Plus, if there’s a whole bunch of you in the cab, obviously you all have to harmonise and do call-and-response material.
