At any given point in the history of humanity, a single piece of technology comes up and changes the way we view things.Think Facebook, Whats App, the i Phone, Tesla Motors; heck! While these pieces of technology have changed the way we communicate and travel and even manage our finances, their impact on our love lives has been somewhat minimal.
The food is terrible and traffic can be horrific, but the upsides of warm, friendly people far outweigh the downsides.
As I advised in my article on online dating in South Africa, should you decide to sign up for the online dating sites I recommend below, be sure to read member profiles carefully as you might come across a lot of fake profiles. A woman who has only one picture posted, is wearing a tight bikini and making an overly suggestive pose are usually clear signals to steer clear. Afro Introductions is an African dating site under the Cupid Media Network umbrella.
I am a lover of Technology and much of it revolves testing products like Tinder :-P.
So I downloaded the application from the Google Playstore, completed the installation and was ready to go.
The majority of internet users in Africa access the internet on their mobile phones.
The trend has led to thousands of mobile applications.
Tinder is not the first dating app or services as there have been predecessors such as and competition from other services such as Hinge, Coffee Meets Bagel and others. Dating/ meeting people using technology involved long tedious process of having to fill out forms talking about your interests, likes, wants, dislikes and most importantly adding photos of yourself.
The dating site would then use its proprietary algorithms to analyze who in its database is close enough to what you want.
Kenya, like all of the countries in Africa has a pretty large gap between the vast majority of the local people and the urban elite centered in Nairobi.
That breakdown is important if you are in contact with a Kenyan woman, because the girls from Nairobi are going to be much more sophisticated about the world than girls from smaller towns and villages.
You'll also find that most Kenyan girls are modern and wear Westernized clothing but are quite conservative in their dress sense and how they approach men.
