When I joined Tinder this summer, more guys approached me in the first week than had approached me my whole life. Also, I always thought Tinder was all about sex. But then suddenly I had multiple friends finding relationships on it. So I gave it a try. After that first week, I was like, Huh. People fall in love this way?
The year-old from North Carolina started messaging boys ten years ago: "I was the fat girl at school so kept to myself a lot. It gave me an outlet for sexual feelings that I wouldn't have got in real life. I became hooked on the thrill of chatting to new people. Now in a long term relationship with another woman, Sarah still spends hours each night talking to men via anonymous app Kik, despite only having hooked up with one man in real life. I end up stressed out. Sexting has become a part of everyday life for anyone with a smartphone and a libido.
