According to recent statistics, the LGBT community makes up roughly 5% of the American population, but where are all the Lesbian singles?
Unless gay bars are your thing, dating is a game of guess and check; knowing who is gay, let alone who is single and interested in more than friendship, can be quite a challenge.
COM Pros: Summary: might be an excellent place for gay women looking to settle down, but the options are very limited.
Key takeaways include: COMING OUT Everyone has a personal story of realizing their sexual orientation and coming to terms with who they are Age of Self-Described Realization: Time in the closet: 25% of LGBTQ singles came out the same year they say they "realized" their sexual orientation or gender identity.
Of those who realized before adulthood (defined as age 18), they went an average of 7 years before telling someone they identified as LGBTQ.
Additionally, of those who realized during adulthood, it took an average of 2.9 years to come out. Those assigned male at birth waited the longest before telling someone, with an average of 1.6 years longer compared to biologically born females.
Transgender women took an extra 2.1 years before telling someone than a gay or bisexual man, and transgender men waited the shortest amount of time without telling someone.
Editor’s Note: These 5 apps were Chloe’s choices in 2015 when this article was first featured, as a follow-up to her 2013 review.
Over the last two years, we’ve seen a few new additions, most notably Find Femmes and Compatible Partners.
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.
So If you’ve tried either of those, leave your experience in the comments! HER (formerly Dattch)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.
Summary: Overall I can’t say much about this app because it costs money to begin browsing. It could be a great app to try for a month to find the few gay women out there on it.
