Is it time for a dating app review? HER formerly Dattch HER is a fresh, ultra flexible app aimed exclusively at lesbian, bisexual, pansexual, and queer women. Setting up my HER profile took less than five minutes; I just signed in with Facebook, selected a couple pictures from my various social media feeds and filled out my stats.
I like that Facebook is required to sign up for HER because it helps keep out pathetic men who get off by pretending to be lesbians on the internet. Your profile on HER can be as simple or as in-depth as you want it to be: While this freedom is endearing, a few simple prompts a la OkCupid might be helpful.
Your weekend just got gayer because now you know where to go to. Hinge Hinge is yet another mobile matchmaking app trying to make it big by being like Tinder, only slightly different. So what sets Hinge apart? Unlike any other dating app, Hinge only matches you with friends of Facebook friends. This sort of social network expansion has great possibility for lesbians whose hot friends of friends always seem to be just out of reach. Unlike Tinder and Bumble, Hinge only showed me women.
This lets Hinge users quickly cobble together a taste profile. I like being able to see what I have in common with someone before striking up a conversation. Hinge now syncs relationship status from users Facebook pages. Meaning those ratchet couples creeping for threesomes can now be instantly spotted and dismissed along with the dishonest and unfaithful.
If no one says something within the first 24 hours, the connection disappears forever! If there is a match, both users are notified. But on Bumble—unlike Tinder or OkCupid—only the women can begin a conversation… Perhaps still more impressive: Until then, know that we are absolutely friendly and all about you not in our actions or product but in our occasional empty words.
