    The iphone (and I guess, Blackberry) hook up app? Takes stalking to a new level. :p

    I'm guessing this means, no.

    I have an account, and check in once in a while, especially when away from home, out of pure curiosity, but have never actually hooked up with someone from there. I basically pop on, look at a few pics, then log off before someone approaches me. :redface:

    Seems like a lot of people use it just to 'check things out' kind of. I just started using it. It's cool and creepy to see how close some dudes are to your house.

    btw: I got deleted the first time because I used the word 'hung'. lol.

    I got it a week ago. Haven't actually tried to hook up. Chatted to a nice guy tho. Who was within 500m of me at lunch and then the same student exhibition later that night. He msgd me, but I only saw it after I got to gym, post exhibitioning.

    I don't use it (Sprint Epic 4G - android phone). I was out with friends last week who both use it and it was a bit funny to me. We were in a local bar having drinks and guys in the bar were messaging one of them. Well, if you're 25 feet away, why not just walk over and say hello? Both of them use it for fast hookups while travelling.

    If it became available for Android, I might use it. But I'm one of those guys who prefers to meet his men by going up to them, not by messaging them.

    i have used it in the past. idk what i think about it really. plenty of guys on there are very in love with themselves - basically they're too good to say "hello" to your "hey". also plenty of creeps on there too.
