Launched in July, Mesh uses filters that scan incoming messages for vulgarity and curse words and files them into a “Mismatch” folder so you never have to see them unless you want to.Meg, a 26-year-old Calgarian, who uses sites like Ok Cupid, says this tool would be really useful.Kimberly Williams, an associate professor and program co-ordinator of Women’s Studies at Mount Royal University, describes the online experience for women as “Horrible, absolutely horrible.”Williams believes that online life for women is a reflection of real life, yet worse in many respects because of if its inherent anonymity.“Just logging on to your computer takes the off-line violence for women online,” she says.She thinks part of the problem is that so few of the makers of today’s most popular websites and apps are women.Michelle, a 27-year-old Calgarian, regularly uses Tinder, a simple dating app.

Several times she has had the experience of a random Tinder user contacting a mutual friend to pry out personal details about her.These female-friendly features — invite-only, anonymity, filters and blocking — are all tools that women can now add to their arsenal as they navigate the online dating world.Three additional apps have also recently hit the market, Bumble, Lulu and Siren.Worse still, even if Michelle swipes left on a guy’s profile and makes the personal decision not to connect, he can “rise above the system,” as Michelle says.

He can then use Michelle’s name to find her on Facebook and private message her, to says things like, “I don’t know if you swiped left on me or if you just haven’t seen me yet, but I wanted to let you know I’m interested.”Interactions like these defeat the supposed anonymity that Tinder promotes.“It would be great if there was a feature where I could ‘unlock’ further levels of disclosure based on how I’m feeling about a guy,” says Michelle.” Men can see women’s answers without seeing their profile pictures, while women can see the men’s answers, pictures and full profiles.
