"It's not important what I did," said Peterson, to the derision of some. I'm a sex offender and I committed a crime and I did spend four years in prison for," he said. "The problem with that word is when I hear [it] and [the phrase] a sex offender likely to reoffend, what I hear is 'a pedophile.' That word has been tossed around ...
That is not what happened in my case," said Peterson, who again told the audience about the incident and his immediate confession to the parents and law enforcement. Before this happened, I would have said and meant it, 'I would never have an offense against a child.
Based on that, you'll get matches who you can swipe right (for yes) or left (for no). Javi: Well, I mean I've thought that, but I don't outwardly say it. However, on Bumble, the ball is in the woman's court. How it works: Ok Cupid is a free algorithm-based dating app. Javi: It's also kind of interesting how you can see who's looking at you.
Kirsten: Tinder is the fuckboy of dating apps for me. But as other apps have picked up, I've kinda moved on from it. After matching with a woman, it's on her to reach out and say hi. The profiles are more in-depth and require you to answer a series of questions which are then used to give you a certain percentage in which you match with someone. But once, I got in a daze answering the questions and realized they NEVER FUCKING END. Kirsten: But I hate that because I'll look at someone like six times while I'm talking to them to be like, wait, who is this again?
How it works: Hinge connects you with other users through Facebook and lets you know who your mutual friends are. Kirsten: Because people can background check your dirty little secrets with all their mutual friends? I mean, Hinge was great in Boston (where I'm originally from) when I had a huge network of friends to draw from. Do you really want a guy who smells like horses and tobacco dip? How it works: It's free to sign up, and after creating a profile you take a chemistry test, which hopefully helps you match with people. Though it is commonly used for hooking up, it can lead to serious relationships. It tells you the people you've come across throughout your day and who mutually thought you were cute. Kirsten: But come to think of it..would be great for the guy I have a crush on at Trader Joe's.
Born in Texas, he's got the gentlemanly charm and Southern drawl to make the gals swoon. Kirsten: So, neither of us have used this — but it seems cool. I had a guy message me asking if I would send him a picture of my feet, and then a couple message me looking for a third. So you get one person a day, rather than swiping through multiple matches. It kinda forces you to focus on one person at a time. I feel like I'm always deleting it and then going back to it — because let's be honest, I have a soft spot for fuckboys. Kirsten: Yeah, it's kinda more of a game to me than anything else — is that fucked up to say? Javi: It's definitely more of a hookup site, in my opinion. They have 24 hours to do this before the connection expires. Kirsten: Yeah...that's probably why I don't like it. Javi: Bumble takes you back to, like, junior high where you're waiting for the girl you like to talk to you or call you. And if the girl has to make the first move, to me, it feels like they actually like you. How it works: You post where your ideal date would be and then find other people in your area who have similar interests. Kirsten: So overall, it's good for ACTUAL dating if you don't mind weeding through some weird messages. How it works: Every day at noon the user receives a "bagel," which they can either like or pass. So it's like, hey, let's sext, then sex, then never talk again. If I wanted to disappoint two people I'd have dinner with my parents." For some reason that comes to mind with this app.
