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 love the internet and large groups of unknown lesbians give me anxiety-driven bitch face, so dating via the App store sounds like a fabulous idea to me. Online dating is nothing new, and while some straight people might hesitate to post their personals on the internet for fear of stigma, almost every lesbian I know has at some point gone online to find lurve or at least sex.
It just makes sense; gay-dar has limitations, lesbian nights can feel far and feel between, and meeting a girl organically can feel impossible as a gay woman.
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.
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.
Tone wise, Ok Cupid is relentlessly upbeat with tongue in cheek terminology and a pleasant aura of “we don’t take this too seriously and neither should you.”Amenities: Like all of these apps, getting starting with Ok Cupid is quick and simple.
All you need is an email address and a (hopefully charming) username and you’re reading to get creepin’.
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.
