A deadly dating game.
A boom in the popularity of gay dating Apps for smart phones has contributed to record high levels of HIV infection in Hong Kong, some Aids prevention workers believe. But is technology or poor sex education at the root of the epidemic? Simon Parry and Hazel Knowles report.
It takes only two or three taps on the screen of a smart phone before the picture of a bare-chested young man pops up. John is 25, he’s single, he’s looking for friends, dates and fun, he’s online now and he’s less than a mile away.
This is the new face of gay dating in Hong Kong. Male-only smart phone applications like Grindr that use global positioning technology to put homosexuals in touch have taken over from saunas and bars as the favored way for a new generation of gay men to source partners.
John’s profile is relatively tame. Others on Grindr are explicit, and make it clear precisely what the person within range is seeking and that in many cases he wants a fast, no-strings-attached sexual encounter.
My husband goes on dating websites to meet other women – Coleen Nolan’s advice column
I’ve been married for two years, but have been with my husband for four years and we have a two-year-old daughter.
At the moment I just don’t know what to do as my husband is going on dating websites and setting up profiles, saying that he’s single and wants to meet someone for fun only, no sex involved.
He’s also started to go out more and I know he’s flirting with other girls and getting their numbers and texting them behind my back.
I do love my husband, but I just can’t put up with this kind of behaviour any more. I’m not sure how to handle the situation, though, because every time I bring it up, he turns around and blames me, saying that I’m the one who’s pushing him that way.
He makes me feel like the bad one, so I always end up running back to him. Recently, I caught him at it again and finished it, but he says he won’t take me back unless I fulfil all his sexual fantasies. I don’t think this is fair.
I really am at breaking point – can you help?
