Well let’s say on a normal day, you’d scroll pass about 20 different profiles on your dating app.In two to three months, you would have had gone through a thousand different faces.And I suppose you would have talked to at least 1 percent of them, which is about 10 people.

Back in the early 2000s when I was a hormone-raging, sexually curious teenager, there was simply no other way for me to meet any potential dates: I was strictly limited to the friends and schoolmates I hung out with.
At that time, I had no idea who might be gay or at least curious like me. All we had was our Nokia phones and the snake game.
I did have a few crushes here and there in school, but that was it.
All I could do was stare from a distance and play with the fantasies in my head.
My love life was as you would imagine, frustratingly uneventful.
But everything changed when personal computers and the internet invaded our homes.
Going online is like entering into a whole new world.
You are no longer restricted to any particular social sphere or geographical space.
There and then, I discovered a gay online forum that allows users to create their own custom profile with photos and personal information.
On top of interacting on the multitude of discussion pages, users can also communicate with each other via personal messages a.k.a pm.
There are also other features like ‘add friend,’ ‘send a heart,’ ‘send a kiss,’ ‘send a spank’ and such.
