The drinks are prepaid and Grouper tells you exactly where to meet up, so all you have to do is decide who should tag along. Maybe all three of you will find a love connection.Whether you’re looking for friendship, a random hookup or location-based love, there’s a slew of dating apps and websites out there for every kind of single.

Friends won’t know who’s selected them unless the feeling is mutual.So If you’ve tried either of those, leave your experience in the comments! HER is a fresh, ultra flexible app aimed exclusively at lesbian, bisexual, pansexual, and queer women.HER’s modern hybrid of dating and social networking is a refreshing break from the pressure to hook-up or fuck off that embodies some competitors.I like that instead of clicking on a profile to see more than one picture, HER shows you a collage of images to quickly convey who you’re looking at.
“Feed,” my favorite part of HER, is similar to my Facebook feed in that it is all lesbians posting links, events, thoughts, etc. HER introduces itself as “the app that will introduce you to every lesbian you ever wanted to meet.
Finally, you can start dating a lesbian that hasn’t slept with any of your friends.
Your weekend just got gayer because now you know where to go to.” HER knows all the right things to say. Unlike any other dating app, Hinge only matches you with friends of (Facebook) friends.
Your profile on HER can be as simple or as in-depth as you want it to be: just add a textbox like you would a picture and write away.
While this freedom is endearing, a few simple prompts a la Ok Cupid might be helpful.
