“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.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.
House parties, movies, debates, hanging out, whatever you desire, Lesbian Friends date is the ultimate singles community for lesbians.
Others simply saw no need for the app because they had never considered lesbian dating as major problem to solve.
“We don’t have proof there’s a market,” Exton was told.
Dating apps specifically for gay women are limited.
The most prominent is Brenda, an app similar to Grindr that was created by a man.
