See, when my boyfriend was showing me the ropes of the game, he told me that he mostly plays with strangers. I immediately started getting messages from men and only men I was randomly paired with to play the game.
Even in cases where the messages were not blatantly flirtatious, the men would often continue sending message after message despite ke lack of response and clear disinterest in doing anything other than playing the damn game. Play me in words with friends women commented that they had stopped playing entirely because of it, and related having similar experiences with other apps and online games.
