If someone makes you uncomfortable, un-match them, report the issue and move on.
Today's technology, connectivity and innovative applications make connecting with and meeting new friends easy.
But at the end of the day, you're still the one who decides who you find attractive and with whom you want to spend your time.
A code or code date should be information that has meaning to the manufacturing or packing plant for tracking purposes of a product, specifically, a means of identification of product slaughtered, prepared, processed, or packaged on a certain date in the case of a recall.
But the other day, I said to my productivity, “Hey, workflow, let’s take an unexpected 2 hour break and check this sucker out.” For anyone who doesn’t yet know what I’m talking about, ‘this sucker’ is Tinder: a ‘dating’ app that’s like if (remember that?! All you see of these potential matches are a few photos, any mutual friends or interests (according to your FB profile) and one tagline. The fact that you can tell when someone is “less than a mile away” made me believe that I was one mis-swipe away from ending up in some guy named Xenon’s trunk never to be seen again all because he had a cheeky tagline and a photo of a puppy in his profile pic. What started out as an experiment got me thinking about what this app says about dating in general.
And, somehow, things have gotten worse still: Breadcrumbing is the fresh way for daters to eff with the people who are expressing unrequited interest in them. Breadcrumbers will send you sporadic messages, slide into your DMs here and there, or throw you a like on Instagram just frequently enough so you don’t lose interest, but not too much so the relationship actually moves forward.
Breadcrumbing, defined by Urban Dictionary as “the act of sending out flirtatious, but non-committal text messages (ie "breadcrumbs") in order to lure a sexual partner without expending much effort,” equates to leading someone on. It’s a twisted, methodical practice that takes serious effort to perfect — effort that, seriously, WHY DON'T THEY PUT INTO DATING YOU PROPERLY?!?!
If the code links to a production date, that is sufficient; that is actually the purpose of the code to identify the date of production or a lot from a specific date.
However, codes should not have meaning that is misleading to a consumer.
