rusiadating - Lesbian online dating websites
Overall - This newbie app has stormed onto the scene, it's famous "swipe right" concept asking you to essentially thumbs up or thumbs down women in your area. Which, depressingly, resulted in me being matched with my own twin sister, begging the question; Why did we both swipe right?! It's astounding how men feel that the reasonable online equivalent of a handshake is a selfie of their premium product.
It's hilarious, too, because you BOTH KNOW you are interested. We may as well all post pictures of the nonchalant sides of our far-too-cool faces as our profile pictures and save ourselves the trouble.
I've resorted to using it to send my sister lesbian themed hashtags I find hilarious, ie #Keep Your Yuletide Gay and #Your Face Or Mine.
Overall - This lesbian specific app is based on a Facebook-style profile idea where you post and preen on a news feed style system until someone talks to you.
HER (Daatch) is completely for women, and you have to give it to them, they know lesbians. if you've shown interest in someone, they're going to know about it.
Everything you do or click on comes up as a notification, so browse wisely know lesbians, and well.
There's a lot to do within the actual app, as it encourages users to create an up to date profile that moves and interacts just like a Facebook page, plus an online blog written by the team themselves with some pretty decent content.
Cleverly, this keeps you and the person you're chatting to logged on within the actual app so that dialogue becomes smoother and more instant. Although you can block users from contacting you, their profile still remains on your "radar" and so your exes face will be smiling up at you no matter how many buttons you press. You have to pick whether you're in to men or women, as the brain-trust over at Po F have clearly decided that your bisexual ways should not be tolerated on the internet (even though that's probably where they started).
As opposed to the usual "I'll check that on the bus, read it, then reply when I'm ignoring the washing up two hours later". Tears on your smartphone screen do not a happy lesbian make, but Daatch's "Relationship Mode" enables users to stay live while in a relationship, making the exes presence on it even more deliriously painful as she showcases pictures of her and her new girlfriend getting cats or matching tattoos. As well as allowing me to spend many a fun night GPS tracking the future love-of-my-life, this feature is also very handy for seeing who lives locally and most active online. Overall - It's beastly boasting about "Behavioural Matchmaking" makes you feel like a stud dog and it's promise to allow you to "Browse profiles for free" before paying sends us straight to the Close Window button.
How Best Feature - Their "Near You" section, which via the app allows you to see how many lesbians are in your area at any given time. This outdated and almost specifically un-LBGT-friendly app is about as much fun as stabbing yourself repeatedly in the eye with the pointy end of your rainbow coloured flag. I do not want my God-Mother or Vicar knowing I am trawling for women on the internet.
connect you to Facebook, and although it won't tell your Wall about it, you will be used in their side-ways marketing scheme via use of the "your friend is using Zoosk" sponsored plugs in your friend's New Feed. It's far more fun getting drunk and telling them myself at weddings.
So there you have it, the best and worst of the bunch. At the end of the day if the right woman is out there, no amount of firewall settings or horribly set up matching algorithms are going to keep you apart.
