New gay dating websites
I can’t pretend making a profile doesn’t make me self-concious, but I will say that it’s better to put yourself out there in almost any way that to sit at home, re-watching Last week I created a dating profile on each of these sites, and rating apps geared (or accepting) of lesbians based on three criteria: style, amenities, and my personal experience.Ok Cupid Style: Ok Cupid’s color palette of pepto bismal pink and gender-normative blue isn’t the chicest choice, but it’s not ugly.Choice to not appear to straight people- this cuts way down on creepy straight dudes so blinded by their own delusional desperation they refuse to believe “gay” means “not interested in men including you”Experience: The biggest free dating app in America, Ok Cupid combines a wide array of filters, detailed profiles, and arguably the largest density of LGBTQ women to choose from.I, and most gay women I know, have at some point(s) used Ok Cupid to go upon date after awkward date in hopes of (maybe) meeting someone worth waxing sweet nothings upon.Unfortunately, form comes at the the price of function.Profiles are incredibly limited, and searching for matches is limited to flipping through pictures of every Tinder user who shares at least one similar “like” with you on facebook.One downside of everyone being on Ok Cupid is everyone will know you are on Ok Cupid.This is particularly awkward when you click on an appealing profile only to find that profile is someone you know, who knows you, who will know you know they know you’re alone.
I searched high and low in the app store but alas, Dattch eludes me now as much as it eluded me the day Trish told me to download Dattch. Whatever the reason, Dattch hella snubbed me and I will not forget the insult. An app only useful to straight people masquerading as a LGBTQ friendly app offends me. I pity Brenda, I want Brenda take her glasses off and reveal that bangin’ body, but I don’t want to fuck with Brenda. Ok Cupid can feel a little high school what with the “who visited whose profile” but Brenda users are friendly and didn’t hesitate at all to hit me up. Ok Cupid not only has far more lezzers, it has features for days, addictive quizes, in- depth profiles, and an incredibly detailed search criteria.Tinder might be stylish and based on an essentially good idea (matching via friends of FB friends/similar interests), but this is 2013 and it is not ok to treat gay women like second class users in any context or medium. I see so much potential here, but the site needs a makeover and more filters/amenities to really be a competitor. Furthermore, by allowing LGBTQ women to remain invisible to straight users, Ok Cupid allows you to date online without male harassment.fun quizzes galore so other people can pre-judge youc.ability to search based on location, age, height, religion, smoking, drinking, drug use, race (ugh), etcd.

There’s no debating reality: lesbians are working with a far smaller potential dating pool than straight women, and (for reasons unknown to me) there are far fewer lesbian geared events than events geared at gay males.
