Okcupid lesbian dating
So, of the hundreds of dating apps that exist, why isn't there a better, queer-women-friendly dating app yet?Are lesbians not online dating because there's no good app, or is there no good app because lesbians don't like online dating?Mostly-straight dating app Tinder had a projected 20 million active monthly users by April 2015, and gay male dating app Grindr, which on its fifth anniversary in 2014 had over 10 million user downloads, has been thriving for years now, but we have yet to see an app for lesbian and queer women really take off.
One reason could be because there just is no good app for queer women.Meeting someone through your LGBTQ social network offers a level of Date Insurance that many queer women can't afford to do without.All this partner-vetting isn't to say all lesbians are serial monogamists."On one hand, it's great that these girls have a venue in which to explore their sexuality safely, but on the other hand, I've learned a few times on first dates with women I met online that they've never been with a woman before," she says."This is not necessarily a problem, but sometimes it's hard to gauge if someone is feeling experimental versus being very much past that stage." A straight-identifying friend even told me she sometimes turns her Tinder to women-seeking-women to chat with women even though she'd "probably never do anything." Enough false-positive matches like that would turn anyone off.
