I have been on a handful of dating apps including but not limited to Tinder, HER, Badoo, and OKCupid. While I have found most all dating apps to be annoying and basically the same when it comes to operation, I had the most “success” on HER.
I have met 3 people in person from the HER app. I dated only 1 of them and that lasted about 3 months. The first person I met on the HER app was a straight girl who I awkwardly hugged goodbye when we parted ways from our “date” at the local mall. It was a sight to see. The other girl I met went to a nearby university and advertised herself as having long hair, so I was quite confused when a buzzed head flagged me down at the Greek restaurant we were supposed to meet at.
*I want to insert here that I don’t care about how my partner wears their hair. My last girlfriend rocked a short haircut and she looked damn good. I only have an issue with false advertisement.*
The date with the girl with the buzzcut was very uncomfortable and we both struggled for conversation. The food also sucked. I made an excuse to leave early and RAN.
Aside from the girl I dated for 3 months after meeting on the HER app, all of relationships have been as a result of meeting in school, an event, or at work. I’m hesitant to try dating apps again because they haven’t resulted in the most fulfilling encounters.
I recently created an account on the website Find Femmes, created by Megan and Whitney Bacon-Evans (one of my favorite YouTube couples to watch!). I’m a little nervous, but I’ll update you all on how the website works out for me.
