Dating and online apps. Keep them or delete them?

Unread postby Zurdoknoc » 17 December 2019, 16:28

A guy I like a lot agreed to go out on dates. I guess that’s dating. As many of us I have a few online apps like Grindr, scruff a4a. I used them to hook up and chat mostly.
Now that I started dating this guy I am wondering if I should delete them all, stay out of trouble and focus my energy and good vibes and sexual desired only on him.
We have not had a conversion about it since it’s too soon but this time. Let me know your thoughts.

I'd say you have a lot more to lose from keeping them around than from deleting them, so I would get rid of them all. It also seems like the respectful thing to do for a person you really like and can see a future with :)

I feel the same .....I am recently single from a 6 years rel. Back in the days we didn’t have a lot of apps and the dating scene was different. Just wanted to know what are you guys thinking and doing about it

I deleted mine, I wanted to be with the guy I'm with so it felt irrelevant to keep it.

Well for Grindr you can just Logout for now. I'd also suggest having the conversation if you feel that way. Best not to wait too long in that as that may not be his expectation. Letting yourself get deeply emotionally involved without telling the other is dangerous at best.
