I’ve been published on the ways the dating apps are actually helping us talk about HIV.
And I covered the funny story of a large HIV nonprofit targeting these apps in a campaign, but I am concerned about the possible direction of creating an environment on Grindr, by Grindr, of not encouraging disclosure and creating a false sense of HIV prevention by filtering out those that honestly admit to living with HIV. Should Grindr allow users to filter out those that admit to living with HIV?
And what do I have to show for all that time spent living outside the U. The list goes on, but here are some highlights: at least twice as much romantic drama (and comedy) in half the time I spent in New York City, at least two books (the first, , is out Nov.

As soon as the (miracle) screen loaded, Grindr asked me to complete a survey.
I hate surveys but I tapped ‘ok.’ The questions that were asked all primarily revolved around HIV, and you all already know that I was all in.
But unfortunately, they raise serious questions to me about Grindr’s intention to regulate an atmosphere of disclosure of HIV punishment, and Grindr’s potential interest in perpetuating the false idea that if someone says that they are negative–than it must be true.

The only certainty is that you'll meet an abundance of men with one-track minds, and the main thought running on that track will be motivated by the possibility of sex at the finish line. A man is a man is a man -- no matter how you meet him.
Je mehr heute unser Leben durchgeplant und vollkommen organisiert ist, desto häufiger möchten wir einmal aus dem Trott ausbrechen und ein kleines Abenteuer in unseren Alltag integrieren.
The best/most surreal part: it came from one of my all-time favorite authors, Joel Derfner (read my review of his book ) (For clarity’s sake, I should mention that Joel was merely being polite. I’m only like, 98% jealous.) It’s funny that the best Twitter marriage proposal I’ve received to date actually occurred It seems that when it comes to the quest for marriage proposals, trying = failing.
Or rather, trying = succeeding at finding love and companionship in food items only. (Again.) judged by many a pretentious gay man throughout the evening.
