Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.

But no matter how mainstream Tinder—or any other dating app—becomes, it never has really lost its stigma.

In the 80s & 90s, many couples met through newspaper classified ads.

Has what you found mislead you or been an accurate predictor? Has anyone met their significant other through online dating or similar way and been kind of embarrassed about it and created a 'decoy' story to tell people how you met?

This is what was running through people’s minds when they heard our story, I thought.

I’m not totally crazy for believing that."Isn't that, like, a hookup app? “It’s not like you need to turn to online dating,” another friend told me. But it really wasn’t until then that I stopped caring what people thought about my relationship that came about through a dating app.

Then I'd go on to share my one redeeming shred of confidence: He was my last date.
