Agape Match’s Avgitidis says that dating sites have seen a big uptick in people noting their political preferences on their profiles.“I used to say, ‘Don’t let ideology get in the way of love,’ [but] I think when people meet other people, they want to know what their values and lifestyles are,” she says.
“There’s a sort of New Age chivalry about that.” Unfortunately, the rule seems even less clear for those in the LGBT community, says Morningside Heights resident and comedian Stephanie Foltz, who is bisexual.
While some might lament the loss of anonymity, Manley adds that this isn’t always such a bad thing.
With time, a no-strings hookup could turn into something more.
With Facebook, Twitter and some minor sleuthing, anyone can be tracked down.
“If you sleep with someone, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to contact them again [or vice versa],” says Manley.But such shenanigans are now considered passé, given how we’re all constantly looking at our smartphones.
