Suddenly, every other profile has a photo of a Pakistani man in his 20s ‘partying it up’ with at least one or two token goras — to score full ‘exotic’ points.
I also discovered that people in different cities posted similar types of photos.
In Rawalpindi and Lahore, for some reason, every other man is a ‘Raja’, ‘Chaudhry’ or ‘Sheikh’ and they love posing with their sunglasses on and in front of their cars — as if the cars are equally responsible in testifying to their virility and prowess as a potential match in their photos.
Another interesting aspect of using Tinder in Lahore was that you end up seeing a lot of profiles from across the border — the app brings you matches based on geographical proximity.
Instead you come across women who see you as an ATM.”“There are a few weird women out there,” agrees Ahsan, 37-years-old, artist. Maybe it’s just the thrill of seeing what’s out there — after all poondi (Punjabi slang for when you ogle at people and sometimes undress them with your eyes.

” I was asked by a gora backpacker friend henceforth referred to as Tim (34-year-old, engineer). “It’s very common to find them on dating apps in the United Arab Emirates. In person, they’re very nice and can carry a light conversation. “There is no exchange of money, but rather of gifts.” But it’s not all dark and murky where women are concerned.“We tell the world we were set up on our first date by mutual friends.”Like a lot of younger Pakistanis, she was introduced to the dating application while studying in college in the United States.“When I started, it was more for entertainment, to see what’s out there,” she relates. Over there, Tinder means something completely different.” Mehreen adds that abroad it is seen more as a means for a casual ‘hook up’ than a modern hip mobile-friendly version of Mehreen’s intentions may have been ‘honourable’ — as a college-educated, free-thinking woman, she wanted to close this ‘final’ chapter and meet someone on her own terms to spend her life with — but in Pakistan, there are hardly spaces (outside of co-educational institutions and the workplace) for young single individuals to mingle and meet new people and get to know one another.For those that want to go beyond their immediate social circle and cast a wider net, so to speak, there are hardly any spaces that allow that.
