Up until now dating apps, not to be confused with online dating websites, have had a male heavy demographic—that is, until Tinder came along.
Tinder is the latest in a slew of location based hook-up partner finding apps that use GPS to locate future sex-mates. But, it's different than Blendr, the other "Grindr for straight people," and the dozens of others of dating apps out there in one critical aspect: women are actually using it.
The effect on boys, however, is less often part of the discussion.
Conventional wisdom tends to oversimplify the situation to something along the lines of: Boys get to have sex, which is really all they want. Reality is far more complex than this, in ways that can affect young men socially and emotionally well into adulthood, according to Steiner-Adair.
