I had friends reviewing my photos and got the thumbs-up on quality.I think I’m an attractive person and couldn’t understand the issue — was the app broken or what?In three weeks of using it, she’s gone on one date but said she probably would have swiped right on the person anyway.“Sure, I’m able to reach out to more people because I can connect to them, but the response rate is the same.I would hate to miss out on meeting someone exciting just because they live six blocks away.” In South Carolina, 36-year-old legal professional Jessica (not her real name) paid for the premium kink-friendly app Feeld because that was the only way her profile could remain hidden from Facebook friends.Due to her field of work and the fact that she lives in a small town in a conservative state, she didn’t want her precise sexual desires (profiles on Feeld ask users to list them) to be public knowledge.“I recently broke up with someone and was out of the loop with swiping,” she explains.“A few days went by after downloading the app and I wasn’t getting any matches.
