THE DAILY ATHENAEUM - Sep 11 - More people are starting to tell their children that they met on Blendr or another dating site. Blendr is a location-based mobile network allowing users to connect to other users nearby. It allows them to choose who can see their profile and gives their approximate location. While the app is handy, it takes away from the thrill of meeting new people. Meeting new people also helps to develop social skills for the shy and unnaturally bold. When someone is shy, it does not help to sit behind a computer and interact with people they may never see. The only way to get past shyness is to interact with people and get comfortable with it.
