If you’ve ever used a dating app, you’ll know that almost everyone you swipe on is looking for a partner. While some look for casual relationships and look forward to having company while indulging in interesting activities, some look for life partners. However, some go beyond these conventions and surprise people, by extension people on the internet if one shares the incident.
A Twitter user came across an unusual proposition from her match on a dating application. Pratim Bhosale, a web developer at Nhost, a platform that provides an out-of-the-box backend for your web and mobile apps, posted an interesting conversation from her dating account on Twitter.
Her tweet, which includes a screenshot of a conversation with a person over a dating app, is making the rounds on social media. Bhosale is introducing herself to the other person in the chat. She mentioned her profession, which is training (web) developers, which piques the other person’s interest and prompts him to ask her questions.
The conversation begins with another person asking her about her work to which she responds that she teaches developers. Curious he asked Bhosale whether she has “any ideas” about web development and she replies affirmatively saying that she’s a software developer and is bound to know about it.
The other person then asks her for a favour, saying, “Then I need a favour from you.” Bhosale responded to the message by writing, “I am not building a website for you.” After all, the request may not have been unusual to her.
Pritam’s tweet sparked a frenzy of responses, with several web developers sharing their own similar experiences, while others requested she does some interesting favours for them.
Life Of Developers: Netizens’ reactions
One user wrote, “Can you build a decentralized video streaming app, just like youtube with all features, but no ads? Money no issue.” Another user commented, “You rushed to come to a conclusion as to what they want from you. Maybe they just want their printer fixed.”
A user Vanshika wrote, “People getting hired from bumble now” to which Bhosale replied, “Idk. Why are apps not serving the purpose they were meant to.” Meanwhile, another user lamented, “funny people use LinkedIn for dating and bumble for favours (freelance /jobs). This is so wrong.” A user suggested a ferocious reply. The user wrote, “Should’ve shared a link to a web dev course on Udemy”
