This new dating app where you don’t have to talk to each other is the stupidest shit I’ve ever seen
How has it come to this?
I hate asking people about their siblings and pets as much as the next person — shit, I don’t even care about their dreams and aspirations. But this new dating app ‘First‘ literally forces you to go on a date with your match before even exchanging as much as a “Hey,” or the ever charming, “;).”
Not only are we not meeting people in person anymore but apparently finding someone online after browsing four photos of them and then exchanging a few sentences via text is too much as well.

I never thought I’d say this, but perhaps technology has gone too far. Snapchat maps weren’t even the final straw — this is. We’ve rid ourselves of all possible forms of human interaction and replaced them with lazily tapping date options.
After creating an account and choosing photos for your profile, you can select the kinds of dates you’d like to go on: Food, drinks, movie, outdoor, event. It then allows you to select within those, like wine, or coffee. Because, you know, you wouldn’t want to ask them which of those they prefer.
And that’s not even the worst part. The app allows you to choose on a sliding bar who will pay for the date, so that it’s not a conversation you actually have to have at the end of the date.
I’d say maybe this app gives you more to speak about when you do meet because you haven’t run our of topics, but if you can’t come up with a few more things to ask about, or even bring yourself to joke about who’s going to pay, you don’t deserve to be going on dates in the first place.
