”My pleasant if unremarkable experience with Bumble was slightly marred when I read this ludicrous passage in “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.
So If you’ve tried either of those, leave your experience in the comments! HER is a fresh, ultra flexible app aimed exclusively at lesbian, bisexual, pansexual, and queer women.
HER’s modern hybrid of dating and social networking is a refreshing break from the pressure to hook-up or fuck off that embodies some competitors.
Users can pick “tags” for their favorite date spots and activities along with religion and race.
This lets Hinge users quickly cobble together a taste profile.
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.
Over the last two years, we’ve seen a few new additions, most notably Find Femmes and Compatible Partners.
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.
Unlike Tinder and Bumble, Hinge only showed me women.
Perhaps this is because Hinge’s results aren’t warped by the pressure to provide endless options.
