Lesbans dating straight women
There are plenty of general-purpose dating apps that gay woman can use.
Match.com, Ok Cupid, Coffee Meets Bagel and Tinder are just some of them.
“Everyone wanted to the see the social aspect,” she said. More articles about dating and gay life are available in a blog.
For Exton, one of the most challenging parts of creating Her was finding investors.
“And with Tinder, you swipe and swipe and then, it’s like ‘Oh crap, she was cute. If both users “like” each other, they are matched and will be able to send messages to one another.
I just rejected her and she’s gone forever.’” Nothing existed for lesbians designed by lesbians until Her came along in September of 2013. Exton herself is gay, and says her San Francisco-based team is made up of four queer women and two straight guys. The profiles are reminiscent of Pinterest, the virtual bulletin board where users can “pin” favorite pictures.
The idea is to create a community for lesbians looking to make friends, chat, and, of course, date.
It also eliminates the need for women to describe themselves. “They tend to undersell themselves.” Originally, Exton’s product was aimed purely at dating.
However, after a user survey late last year, she decided to refocus the product around creating a community of lesbians. ” The new version of the app features news feeds for eight cities filled with articles written by locals and listings of area events.
But these were all originally created for straight audiences and tend to be riddled with men masquerading as women or couples looking for threesomes.
Moreover, lesbians who use Tinder have occasionally complained about finding straight women or men in their searches.
New science says that sexuality is more fluid than we thought.
