I’ve never used a dating app and thankfully won’t have to in the future. But why should there be any apps or dating sites for meeting people? I met my girlfriend through an online game we both enjoyed playing. I think there’s a greater success rate in doing what you like and finding someone else who enjoys doing that too. If in the future my girlfriend and I part ways, I still won’t use an app or website for dating. Still, I suppose some women and me (gay OR straight) prefer this kind of thing.
Robyn Exton was at the pub with a heartbroken friend when she realised there was a serious gap in the market for dating apps aimed at queer women.
“I was using some awful lesbian dating sites,” she told BuzzFeed News.
“I was in a pub with a friend, she had broken up with her girlfriend and I was telling her what I was using – I was embarrassed that that was the best thing I could give to her.”
Irritated by sites and apps that “took a site for guys, turned it pink, and called it ‘Lez on Lez’,” Exton decided to do something – and the “Her” app was born.
