I like being able to see what I have in common with someone before striking up a conversation.
Hinge’s friends of friends model supposedly encourage good behavior because of social accountability, and I did find Hinge users to be more polite and well-spoken than Tinder or Ok Cupid dwellers.
I like that instead of clicking on a profile to see more than one picture, HER shows you a collage of images to quickly convey who you’re looking at.
“Feed,” my favorite part of HER, is similar to my Facebook feed in that it is all lesbians posting links, events, thoughts, etc. HER introduces itself as “the app that will introduce you to every lesbian you ever wanted to meet.
If no one says something within the first 24 hours, the connection disappears forever!
Making the first move has always been a massive pain in our gay asses, and a ticking clock might be just what queer girls need to swallow their shyness and just say “Hey!
”My pleasant if unremarkable experience with Bumble was slightly marred when I read this ludicrous passage in ’s fawning interview of Bumble founder Whitney Wolfe.“Users swipe left (or ‘no’) and right (or ‘yes’) on profiles of potential partners. But on Bumble—unlike Tinder or Ok Cupid—only the women can begin a conversation…
Perhaps still more impressive: the ratio of women to men using the app, which is just about even—uncommon for this sector.
You are so important to us that we haven’t thought of you, but we will, eventually, maybe when we’re bored or running errands or the cable’s out.
Until then, know that we are absolutely friendly and all about you not in our actions or product but in our occasional empty words.
Finally, you can start dating a lesbian that hasn’t slept with any of your friends.
Your weekend just got gayer because now you know where to go to.” HER knows all the right things to say. Unlike any other dating app, Hinge only matches you with friends of (Facebook) friends.
Your profile on HER can be as simple or as in-depth as you want it to be: just add a textbox like you would a picture and write away.
