Lesbian dating ads
“You can find several different ads posted on or around the Tri Met [public transit agency], their metro system, which includes bus lines, light rail, and commuter rail systems.” The ads for the dating site feature same-sex and heterosexual couples attempt to give new meaning to the acronym “DTF” — which is typically used to mean “down to f—k” – and instead use it for phrases such as “down to fall head over heels,” and “down to filter out the far right.” “When we talk about what matters to people when their dating, we started talking about these phrases, and ‘DTF’ is a phrase that’s largely used by men to talk about women to other men,” Ok Cupid’s Chief Marketing Officer Melissa Hobley told Forbes this week Hobley said Ok Cupid worked with an advertising agency which “came to us with this provocative idea of reclaiming or subverting ‘DTF’ as a phrase that you should be able to define.” “The idea is Ok Cupid lets you say who you are.
You are down to do a lot of sh-t – and you might be down to f–k, but you might also be ‘down to fight the patriarchy,’ or ‘down to fall head over heels,’” Hobley said in explaining the ad.
And in the back of every issue were personal ads written by lesbians looking for sex or love. So I put a call out for submissions and a bunch of people wrote their own adverts that were contemporary.One match-making success story: ‘This babe @sawyer_bird (right) posted the dreamiest response to the personal ad I never got around to writing. ‘I just had my Kickstarter launch party on Wednesday and someone came up to me and told me that they just happened to be in New York but she was from Edinburgh, and she told me she met her partner through _personals_.Ancestors and magic all in cahoots, made sure we just missed each other until the soil was ready to nurture this seed. Her partner was in London but they had met and now she was moving to Edinburgh, and they are – quote – “low-key engaged”.’ Instagram is very much a visual medium and _personals_, in stark contrast, is text-based. ‘Yeah, it’s text based but it’s such a short amount of text, you can read it in a few seconds. I think it’s almost like a visual description of yourself and what you’re looking for.’ The Kickstarter Rakowski mentioned is to turn the @_personals_ Instagram into an app.Even Her, another well-known women’s app, is more akin to a social media platform. I’ve not been on it but it’s very image based and it’s about hooking up, mostly,’ suggest Rakowski.‘I guess that’s the men’s app I’m most familiar with, but a lot of queer women I know are on Tinder, too, and again – you don’t really talk about what you’re into – it’s more image-based, just swiping through people.
