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.
No amount of horrified back clicking can un-visit an unfriendly acquaintance’s Ok Cupid profile. I’ve heard some great success stories from Ok Cupid, while I didn’t find anyone I wanted to date on there, I did meet an adorable new friend.
Tinder Style: With it’s clean layout and modern typography, Tinder is hands down the most aesthetically appealing app.
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 , waiting for Mrs. 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.
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.
We’re straight up less visible, and dating apps allow us to safely browse through girls WE KNOW like girls.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.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.Regular members can filter potentials based on a variety of criteria, which allows you to cast your net as wide or narrow as you like.
