If you’re looking for love and you like to get high, a weed dating app maybe the way to go. He made me a drawing and said we were meant to be together. I used to be like I’m not good at smoking weed, I get paranoid, whatever. One time we were smoking together and we didn’t know each other that well. But that really depends on you and how important is to you that your partner is down to vape and chill. (laughs) I honestly think the app I’ve used the most as a dating app is Twitter. Have you ever heard of weed-specific dating apps like Stoner Singles, High There, 420 Mates, or 420Singles? I think I was really drunk and he was doing coke and I didn’t realize that. He’d done so much coke that when we made out, I pulled back and I was like, “What’s up with your mouth? We've already looked at a few of the most popular apps. I don’t do well with people talking about themselves. If someone responds to the question “how are you” and they talk about work, I’m immediately turned off. Next up, part two, a conversation with single millennials about whether or not they’d ever use a weed dating app. Are they a good way to meet new people to get naked with and to possibly find love?
In 2012, voters in Colorado and Washington passed a historic initiative state law to legalize cannabis, making them the only 420-friendly states for now; while at the same time, opened the door to 420-friendly business entrepreneurs, creating new 420 friendly jobs.
Every election cycle proves that attitudes about marijuana are rapidly shifting across the country. To answer these questions we asked a few millennials whether or not they’d want to use a weed dating app to meet a fellow stoner - or if they’d more likely stick to Tinder and try their luck. Alice, 30, lawyer: I am not currently using any, but I have used Bumble, Tinder, and Hinge. And there’s that exclusive one for like celebrities.
I have only casually dated using dating apps, I have not had a serious relationship with anyone that I've met using an app. And every time Tinder asks me to rate this app, I give it one star. Alan, 34, writer-comedian: I use Tinder, Grinder, OKCupid.
Alan: When you first asked me about this I started thinking about where I heard about weed-specific dating apps and it was on The Wendy Williams show, which I watch. (laughs) When she talked about them, she said, “You have to join a lot of communities to find that special someone. I have never felt the need to talk about smoking with a new/potential partner. ” (laughs) That’s like people’s first association with cancer: weed. ” And everyone knows that question is not about cigarettes. But like the questions I ask on a first date are like, “Do you still talk to your mother? I feel like now that’s just a first date conversation. Like, way way different than in states where it’s illegal. I really don't like cigarettes and I would not want to kiss a date after they've smoked/vaped tobacco. Which is probably not going to be there on the first date. (laughs) Ever had a really bad time trying to dating a stoner? Most of the people I have casually dated were not smokers. Alan: There was this one guy I dated, for a bit, like a month or so, and he was such a stoner. ” And I was like, “Because I can’t feel my mouth.” There was so much trace cocaine in his mouth that I inadvertently did coke for the first time. (laughs) We still hooked up for many times after that.
Would you ever trust a weed dating app to meet a person you’d want to spend time with? I don't really consider smoking pot to be a lifestyle, it's just something that I happen to do. Because of my unique situation, when I mention that I’ve had cancer, people are like, “Oh, do you have a weed prescription? I feel like it’s second nature among my generation to casually be like, “Yeah, so you smoke? Now it’s just like something you do as opposed to like “I love weed” is your identity. ” And you’re like, “No, weed.” And they’re like, “Yeah, sometimes.” Or they’re like, “Yeah, I smoke everyday for my anxiety.” And, I think it’s a lot different in California. (laughs) But after getting to know them better I realized that’s what made them able to be in public. So, I feel like there’s a level of comfortability I have to have. I don't know that I want to date someone who thinks that being a pot smoker is the most important aspect of their identity or is the fact most indicative of their personality. But my experience was with someone kind of annoying and gross.
