Did they shut down because of AIDS, etc?

No of course not. 

But you don't get HIV by eating a cannoli with your date do you?

You concern are touching. Shall we launch an online petition to close all dating apps?

No touching. 

That's the point. 

Keep your distance!

my friends daughter uses an app called Skout, never heard of it but might have a browse later

I recall that's some kind of app for online conversions. Not really a dating or hookup app that's meant to sometimes lead to irl meetings.

A little science video break. Just in case everybody doesn't know already why this is an especially bad time for people to get physically close to new people. Or even old people unless they are in your living space where that can't really be avoided.

Of course this could be a great time to work on your mating dance for when things hopefully open up again.

It's kind of the opposite issue but consider the people all over the world holed up for weeks and months with people that they actually hate. Sure there will be a Covid 19 baby boom but there will also be Covid 19 divorce and domestic abuse booms.

I'm not interested in the sexual morality part of it. People use the apps in different ways, there are different kind of apps, indeed it's not uncommon for people to find their marriage partner on the apps. But normally STDS are a risk but people can take measures to help prevent STDS and still date new people. But with this new virus just getting together for a coffee is likely to spread the virus.

Well, can skip the coffee and go to business. Lots can be done while still keeping the heads 3-4 feet away

No idea what your trip is with that post.

I didn't say I was looking for anything.

The topic is a general one about dating and hookup apps considering the issue of social distancing during this lockdown Coronavirus era.  

And why should the apps be shut down? Because you think they should or don't like them think at this time they are dangerous?  I could  use the app to talk /communicate with a girl and get to know her. Later we could meet but wear masks Order take out from McD's or whatever and sit by the beach. After 14 days if neither have symptoms we can bang each others brains out.

You maybe right to question this, but I rather feel it's something for consenting adults to judge.

I just brought this up for discussion. 

That's all.

The Thai Friendly website, and a few like it, are probably keeping a good few of the working girls in some kind of money earning employment and therefore aiding their families in a time of crisis.  I suggest that a lot of people on TVF need to leave their Western heads in the freezer for the duration and try to find some empathy with the poor in Thailand, who are quickly getting into desperate straits.  If the apps help then good. 

You're right, those poor hookers families!

Of course people all over the world are sheltering in place either to an extreme or limited degree.

Those living as couples, families, or group situations are stuck together for better or worse.

But what about single people?

Should they continue to be using dating and hookup apps?

Surely if meeting friends for a meal is forbidden, going on app date or hookup is like asking for it, yeah?

My man....

Are you not getting any hits off Grindr?
