Friendships, good times, girls to forget that girl, girls to forget some other girls, something to pass the time.It’s harder because you have to pretend to have passions and thoughts about other people’s music taste and and have to constantly generate light chat. Boys don’t just have Grindr, they also have Growlr for bears and Scruff for some other type of boy.There’s never been a centralized place for queer women.You find out about an event through friends of friends on Facebook but you find it weeks later.Dating apps are very popular and this is also due to the fact that most app users are teenagers and youngsters.So whoever is looking for a date in his/her area or country and even outside can download such apps and begin knowing new people.For example all apps which are games are put into gaming apps whereas those which offer music and movies are put into entertainment apps and so on.
Depending upon the nature and purpose of the app, apps are divided into several categories and subcategories on the app stores of different platforms.
Since launching Dattch in 2013, Exton learned that people often went on the app simply looking for friends and kindred spirits.“The biggest things we found were that the need for women to meet each other extended way beyond dating—relationships, to meet and talk with other queer women,” says Exton.
“Dating was not necessarily a core problem for Dattch, but anything beyond dating we were unable to address in a platform that was not designed for that at all.”Providing space to chat makes Her mirror how women go out in real life, says Exton.
If you’re a guy, there are plenty of platforms designed with you in mind—created by engineers who are most likely men and refined thanks to feedback from early adopters, also likely men. While Dattch was a pure dating app, Exton and her team expanded Her to become a social community experience—a digital place for queer women to converse.
The pickings are much more slim for women seeking women, which is why it’s notable that U. Her isn’t just a pink-hued lesbian version of Grindr, which is essentially what gay app Bender (now Wapo) did when it introduced Brenda (now Wapa). Exton and her team kept Dattch’s profile and core dating mechanism but added a news vertical and a user-submitted events calendar.
