Dating sites for young singles
NEW YORK — Online dating services are now hip with young adults, but not always for dating.
But instead of looking for long-term love, some people are turning to these services for one-night stands and even advice from locals when traveling.
Others just want to look at sexy — and not-so-sexy — pics when they’re bored.
“It’s turned into a game,” said Tim Smith, a 21-year-old student from Hampstead, Md.
When he’s bored, he swipes on women on Tinder, even when he doesn’t feel like talking to anyone.
“I don’t know how to say this without sounding like a scumbag, but I used it as a confidence boost,” he said.
