      This blog post reflects my experience with Grindr and the like. Deleting them and loading them up again countless times indicated to me just how powerfully addictive they are. I know not everyone experiences hook up apps this way, but for me, I had to leave that form of social interaction behind for my own sanity.

      In the internet age “hooking up” isn’t that difficult. A friend of mine calls it “internet pizza” because it’s so easy and it comes right to your door. And it’s not just that way only for the 1%ers, the absolutely gorgeous. There are specialty sites just for people of certain body-types and inclinations. A friend of mine is in his 60s and he’s suddenly a “daddy” dreamboat, in demand. He’s getting more ass than I ever did in my 20s.

      And don’t get me wrong, I’ve done it. Dial-a-dick, Woo Hoo! Have condoms, will travel. Team Orgasm for the win!

      But what I’ve noticed is that it makes people more judgmental, less willing to accept differences in others, actually work on relationships. Why bother overcoming differences when there are so many fish (dicks) in the sea? Any and every personal failing or idiosyncrasy is grounds for moving on because finding another dick or ass is so easy. “He hates MUSHROOMS, can you believe it?!” “He actually LIKES watching Real Housewives and I just decided that life is too short to put up with that!” Throw it away because another penis or ass, with a person only incidentally attached to it, will come along.

      People pretend they’re looking for “a relationship” but many of them are lying. Relationships take effort so why bother when you always assume something better will come (and cum) along?

      Yes. You can get hooked on hooking up. I’d like to say you grow out of it, but a lot of people don’t. I feel like I did though. I know what it feels like to care about someone and them care about you. That feeling is better than sex to me. It helps me keep perspective. Not saying I’ll never hook up again, but I definitely have it under control. As long as I can remember that feeling I know that’s what I ultimately want again and it’s not a feeling you’re going to get from hooking up.

      @hotboy1423: When I was your age in San Francisco I spent most of my time when I wasn’t at work in Nob Hill Cinema or some other cruising place. It was the same as this without the app.

      Glad you found a boyfriend. That is the best way to go guy. The chase is always fun but after a while it really destroys you. Good Luck.

      Where do you people find all these hot guys to hook up with on Grindr? It is certainly not my experience with that app? Do I need to move?

      @hotboy, what makes you assume I am not hot? I am complaining about a lack of supply, not demand. My guess is that you don’t live in a small economically depressed city.

      @viveutvivas: well sorry then, I porbably did offend u. I live in montreal, in not such a good economic area. I dont think economics have a correlation with the hotness of guys, actualy stats shows that gay men have more chances to live in poorer area, look it up. But yeah, if ur hot then maybe we should hook up! ( lol I’m so funny :P )

      @hotboy, well, Montreal is quite the gay destination for us New Englanders, so in my experience things are definitely better there than over here, manwise. Also, where I live is not so much the economic depression as it is the smallness, I guess, although the lack of economic and relationship opportunities here is definitely driving many of the better educated gay guys away to bigger cities, depleting the local supply of gay men even more.

      @hotboy1423: @viveutvivas:
      Wouldn’t it be funny if hotboy and viveutvivas already HAVE hooked up, in some Montreal bathhouse a few years ago, and it was hot and they both remember the incident vividly (& fondly) but they didn’t happen to have a conversation?

      I like hotboy’s observation in comment #3. “Stable” sex buddies are very underrated! Too many guys think in terms of “either/or”: either you’re seriously looking for a bf, or you’re a slut. There really IS an in-between.

      You can also make longtime friendships (non-sexual, after the one time) via casual sex, with the right attitude.

      @hotboy1423: I suspect you met my boyfriend at some point. (We’re in N.E. too.) He’s out of town so I have to go beat off now, thanks for the unexpectedly hot conversation! – merci’.
