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.
Lesbianism: where girls always have to send the first message. Once you’ve made a match on Bumble, the pressure is on to move quick or miss out.
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.
Then again, HER’s minimalist profile reflects the modern trend in online dating towards less chatty profiles that encourage users to interact rather than creep.
On the “Meet” tab, I browsed the profiles of fetching young lesbians in my immediate vicinity.
