Why Millennials Are Ditching Tinder to Hook Up on Reddit
Or you can stick to the Tinders and OkCupids of the world, websites and applications specifically designed to aid and abet casual hookups. But while dating apps and websites might help people find lasting connections in the digital world, there are those who are looking for less formal, less polite ways to hook up. That might be why we've seen the rise of the no-nonsense hookup forums on Reddit. You post your age, sexual identity and what you're looking for, accompanied by a short description relaying any notable details.
Then you camp out by your inbox and wait. It's archaic, but it's direct, and that's the point. Considering that apps like Tinder are often considered unwelcoming if not downright hostile to women and LGBT people, it's not so surprising that these users would migrate elsewhere to get laid.
But it is somewhat surprising that they'd flock to Reddit, a website that's been trying to shed its reputation as a bastion of sexism for years. But one reason why Ryan and other Redditors are flocking to subreddits is to escape some of the pomp and circumstance you'll find in places like Tinder and OKCupid, which have a tendency to dress up the stark reality of hookup culture into something a little more modest and demure.
Hell, even Tinder's own CEO denies that it's a hookup app.
But instead of Tinder users coding lascivious desires in Drake quotes on their profiles "I'm looking for a good time, not a long time! There isn't the same backlash as I would imagine you'd probably receive on more traditional dating sites.

They just arrived in my mailbox. I've stalked this sub for a while, and couldn't decide whether or not to post mine but I'm feeling brave on a Monday. It was a very long time ago- back in Thing is, I sort of recalled it but never put two-and-two together until a few months ago when I was talking to my mom who went into great detail.
I was a very gregarious child; outgoing, extroverted, friends with anyone. It was at the time a middle class neighborhood, and 3 houses down from ours, on the same side of the street, was a huge park. My mom was a nurse and my dad was a salesman, but mom worked 2nd shift at Merriter, while my dad worked days. I rarely had a babysitter, only if they went out for dinner or a movie. But they did go out often and there were always older kids in the neighborhood to babysit.
One sitter who I really liked lived a few blocks or so away, and down the street a little bit. Vicky had babysat a few times before that and it was pretty uneventful. She'd play games with me, and do my hair, play dress-up, pretty basic stuff. So anyhow, one day I had gone with friends down to the park. I remember there was a ball field at the time, and a sandlot next to the field. My friends wanted to play on the monkey bars, but I wanted to play in the sand.
I looked at the sand box and my babysitter Vicky was standing there. I told my friends I was going down to to the sandbox and ran off. We played in the sand, building a castle, and then She asks me if I wanted to go get something cold to drink.
It was stifling hot, and I of course said yes. So she takes my hand and we start walking to her place. She starts telling me about her puppies and asking if I want to play with them. Of course I get giddy and now can't wait to get to her house.
This was where my memory had stopped and after my mom told me what happened, the rest of it flooded back. My mother just happened to be talking to my sister and I about some of the places we lived and we got to Monica Lane. I told her I remembered the park and how big it seemed, and she asks me if I remember being kidnapped. I immediately thought she was kidding and then the look on her face told me otherwise. She said it was around 5 in the afternoon and one of my friends had come to the door to ask me to come back outside, sure that I had gotten bored and walked back home.
When my mom checked the house, she realized I wasn't there and 7 months pregnant with my sister sprints to the park, screaming my name. After asking several kids if they'd seen me with no clue, she went to the ball field and asked the older boys if they'd seen me. One of the boys she guessed around 14 said that he'd seen a younger woman playing with a girl that fit my description in the sand and walk off in a general direction and that was all he knew.
My mom ran across the street to one of the houses, and asked to use their phone and called the police. By the time the police got there, my dad had come home and some of the neighbors were trying to help my mom. So there's this search party out looking for me, screaming my name and knocking on doors. The police had gone back to the park to ask the boys if they knew who had been with me and if they knew who she was.

Between the boys and the neighbors, they had deduced who it was that had led me off, but I have no idea how, honestly. The police and the entourage go to her home she lived with her parents but they weren't home and knock on the door. She came to the door and told them she hadn't seen me, and that she'd been home all day. The police asked to come in and for some reason she said okay. They went through the house, and went to the basement and found me. That's what my mom knew and then I remembered.
It was literally like a flood gate had opened and I started crying. At 6 you sort of trust everyone, and she'd been in our home.
I never got a bad feeling from her and my parents didn't, either. But when we walked into her house I remember that cold, holy fuck feeling washing over me and getting very worried.13 TRUE Let's Not Meet Stories From Reddit [Vol.1]
I remember starting to cry and saying I wanted to go home, over and over. She takes me into her kitchen and gets me a glass of water and a tissue. I hear dogs barking, and next to the kitchen is an open stairway the goes down and where the barking was coming from. She starts trying to cajole me into going downstairs- telling me there's all sorts of toys and games. I reluctantly agree and she grabs my hand to head down the stairs.
The dogs are going nuttier and I start screaming. At this point Vicky is getting fucking bizarre. I was scared out of my mind. I remember crying so hard I was hyperventilating, and I am screaming so hard I'm not making sounds. Vicky then flips a switch and starts being syrupy sweet, trying to calm me down. She tells me that she was just playing a game and tells me she wants to play hide and seek. She must have been relatively skilled at calming me down because the next thing I know, I hear knocking on the door upstairs and I wasn't crying.
The houses were all the same sort of tract houses that Sears used to sell, not huge but not small, but you could hear everything at any spot in the house. I keep hearing the knocking and she tells me that it's her friends.
