The photo stream section allows for a familiar social media interaction with its users, almost like an Instagram feed, where people can post pictures of themselves and chat with other users from all over the world.While people can post back and forth publicly on the photos, unless you pay real money to send the user a "gift" (cartoon flowers or chocolates), you cannot privately message them.There will always be the inappropriate or lewd comment, but mostly I saw a lot of people being kind, especially women being kind to other women, which I'm all about: I swiped right to everyone just to see what kind of messages I got.I didn't really respond to any, but for the most part it reminded me of the times I have used other dating apps in the past: some were polite, some were crude, some quoted Adele, the usual:.
