"You are smart" is flirting?!
Good grief....

It kinda fascinating how this kind of app is a simple mirror of what we do, hence showing the culture of flirting.

In this case, I think it's a testimony of our terrible sappy romantic culture. Plus if one assumes the app is built for heterosexuals mainly (either voluntarily or without thinking about it, hence performing normative culture) it could indicate that a man/woman complimenting a woman/man is necessarily flirting


And it is a known bias of the cis-hetero culture :
That no friendship can exist between the two, considered opposite, genders

I *don't* think I'll learn how to say trans in this app... but maybe I'll be surprised
