Are dating apps all about exploitation, or evidence of Gen Y’s sexual liberation? Jill Stark and Laura Banks report
Romance is, like, therefore 1996. Plants and chocolates are lame. Instant messaging and ”hooking up” will be the courting that is new.
And intercourse is merely a swipe of the cell phone display screen away.

Swiping a photograph off to the right shows they like just just what they see. A swipe towards the left is just a thumbs-down. Only once moobs both like one another’s photos can they exchange messages.
