There’s a new dating app geared towards the safety of women called Wyldfire, featured in NY Mag. It’s meant to counteract all of the nasty pix of dix we get, the “Wanna f&%$?” emails, and the general gross Tinder sleezoids out there. This app allows women to join freely, but men have to be invited by invitation. This assumes they’ve been vetted.
The article asks the question, though, “How many men do we have in our life that we deem datable by others?”
I could see myself recommending quite a few people. I have a lot of wonderful guy friends and frankly, have remained friends with guys I went out with a couple of times – no spark for romance – but would be happy to set them up if they were open to it.
I’m not confident the concept of this app will work, but it frankly beats those man-hating websites where women post stories of bad dates to shun guys. It’s one thing if someone is a sociopath, stealing women’s money from state to state, and you later see him featured on 20/20, but it’s another to ruin a reputation simply because you weren’t a match.
I just signed up for a spot as one of the first Wyldfire users. We’ll see how it goes! I will be happy to see the fall of Tinder, especially after hearing that the male leadership “allegedly” sexually harassed the female marketing director. Phooey.
