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.
While this freedom is endearing, a few simple prompts a la Ok Cupid might be helpful.
So If you’ve tried either of those, leave your experience in the comments! HER (formerly Dattch)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.
Editor’s Note: These 5 apps were Chloe’s choices in 2015 when this article was first featured, as a follow-up to her 2013 review.
Over the last two years, we’ve seen a few new additions, most notably Find Femmes and Compatible Partners.
Pink Sofa is different from your run of the mill, meat market, soulless dating site that tries to get you to sign up whatever you do.
You can also look for friends and just hang out and be a part of the community here. Pink Sofa is a great place for women to meet each other.
All you need is an email address and a (hopefully charming) username and you’re reading to get creepin’.And there's some features like chitchat and forums where you can actively discuss all kinds of topics or nothing at all. We make it easy for you to find each other and make contact.And we even have a free trial so you can try it out and see what you think before you go any further. My own journey is a long story - ask me about it sometime, if you see me online - but I realized early on how difficult it was for lesbians to meet each other.It was frustrating, feeling like I just couldn't find anyone I liked... Support groups and lesbian communities were not well-publicized, and hard to find unless you knew who to talk to.I kept looking for an easy solution, but there wasn't one. There just wasn't an easy way to be a part of the community.Finally, 13 years ago, I realized that if anyone was going to build the place I dreamed of, it would have to be me. When I started working on Pink Sofa, I consulted with lesbians all over the world to find out what they valued in a community.Since then I've been working to build a place for lesbians to meet, talk, learn about each other, and (with any luck! In their responses, I found 10 words that kept coming up again and again.Maybe it was my aloofness that drew in the dudes (straight girls take note), but damn, dudes were easy like ~Sunday morning~.All you have to do is bat a lash, act entirely disinterested, cold and bitchy, and boys will fall at your feet.Recently, I’ve been getting a lot of private Facebook messages from baby lesbians who are freshly out of the closet and asking me all kinds of questions:“How do I date girls? I will never forget how terrified I was when I first realized I wanted to exclusively swim in the girl pond. I exerted zero effort into attracting boy creatures, but I learned quickly that I didn’t really need to. It can feel wildly intimidating to be a little, vulnerable kitten tossed into a teeming cesspool of seasoned dykes.
