Turns out the apps didn't create that restriction though: we did.

On Tinder particularly, "The purpose was never just for dating, it was for social discovery in general," Rosette Pambakian, vice president of communications for the app, told me.

"As someone who's single, I wouldn't suggest [you] joining a dating site if you're really not interested in dating anyone at least casually," she said. I thought my "friends only" profiles would be the measure of this: The people who swiped right on me after reading them would understand and accept my terms.

I jumped in swiping myself and found, to my surprise, a lot of guys were cool with my rule.

Tinder was the worst of them: All I saw were a couple of group shots (but which guy are you, Steve?

), ab selfies, and if I was really lucky, a suit shot.

I associated more with her: She had zero chance with me romantically because of my sexual orientation, and I'd feel unethically deceptive talking with her even though I wrote "straight" in my profile and that I was just searching for friends. I always wanted an English friend, in part due to the accent and cultural intrigue.

I also doubted, after a while, people really read what I wrote. As forward as his message was (Did he want to hang out with me already?!

With no other criteria, I swiped right on guys who I found attractive and could write a literate sentence in their About Me, the same method I used when trying to date.

Going in, I thought the experiment was limited: Because these were dating apps, I couldn't access the pool of straight girls, those least likely to see me as a romantic target.
