Since my long-term relationship with the father of my children ended more than three years ago, I had tried various other dating websites (ones I paid for) and been on a handful of dates, but found them all soul-destroying in their own way.
If you want to get married in the next year, for instance, you really shouldn’t be looking for your eternal Netflix partner on Seed.
We’re not saying you shouldn’t have an account — swiping right and left is always going to be fun, and there’s something exciting about an app with over 50 million users — but still, you might also want to look elsewhere.
Over 13.3 million horny men and women use it every month (so you’ll never run out of options), you won’t have to pay to create a profile, browse, and chat, and your information is protected by SSL encryption technology.
More than 30 percent don’t even know where to begin and nearly 30 percent say they find it too stressful (think back to those sweaty palms and awkward conversations.) For more than 40 percent of respondents, other priorities are simply more important, and nearly one-quarter say it’s just too difficult to date when you’re 50-plus.
As a 48-year-old mother of four, you can imagine that logging on to this dating app felt like a last resort – strange, weird and somewhat desperate. My friends and family, as well as my children, would have been horrified, given its tawdry reputation for anonymous “hook‑ups” – one only strengthened, this week, by several studies linking it to a huge upsurge in rates of sexually transmitted diseases.
Blissfully ignorant of this link at the time, I had been somewhat buoyed by a different set of statistics, which showed that the app wasn’t just a hit with the young, free and single, but the middle-aged as well.
No matter what kind of sexual encounter you’re interested in, within minutes, you’ll connect with someone (or someones) who’s interested in the same thing.
Be Naughty has been a leader in the sex app space for years for many reasons.
That’s true whether you’re 16 or 56, but more than 40 percent don’t believe there is anyone “out there” to date.
