For instance, unlike Tinder, Mixxxer limits your location-based matches to within a mile. Manes formulated the idea for Mixxxer last year, at a bachelor party in Scottsdale, Arizona. Part of the frustration people had with Tinder, Manes says, stemmed from its lack of stringent privacy controls; the other half, from the ambiguity of whether Tinder was a hookup or dating app, a gripe that both male and female users shared.
Currently, there are a handful of adult-oriented dating websites on the market: Adult FriendFinder , which filed for bankruptcy last year, is one of the biggest, claiming to have more than 40 million members.
Manes also wanted to attract more women to Mixxxer—a feat for most dating apps and websites, but especially for one with an XXX-rated premise.
For the sake of comparison, as of Tinder was estimated to have 45 percent female users and 55 percent male users. Another area where Mixxxer is lacking in diversity is the intention of its users.
A one-way ticket to the bone zone. Although people are allowed to post pornographic selfies on Mixxxer, Manes is careful to note that he does not consider his app pornographic: They both banned Mixxxer from their app stores, which is why Mixxxer is a mobile Web app and not downloadable. It comes down to conforming with the big guys: Members can practice speaking with the language partner via Skype or improve their writing by submitting a writing sample and asking for corrections from native speakers.
Those using the writing function are asked to return the favor by correcting short samples in their native language. Our guidelines are very simple. Members are here to practice a language this is an educational site, not a dating site , and everyone agrees to be respectful and courteous to all users at all times.
Welcome to our community where everyone is both teacher and learner. Teachers - Are you a professional teacher? If so, you can connect your students with native speakers via written posts or Skype during or after class hours.
Sign up then email me at bryantt dickinson. I'll just need something to verify you're a teacher and not a spammer. The Mixxer has, every semester, taken the messiness and the headache out of finding language exchange partners for my students in Spanish, not to mention more than several dozen people willing to drop everything on a Friday morning just to chat with my students in Spanish on Skype.
The community here is wonderful. In my online language courses, I require a Language Exchange for all my students. They are obliged to have a conversation with native speakers of French, starting with our NOVA ESL students from Francophone countries, family members who speak French fluently and students who use the Mixxer, a well-established language exchange program organized by Todd Bryant at Dickinson College.
