Making the first move has always been a massive pain in our gay asses, and a ticking clock might be just what queer girls need to swallow their shyness and just say “Hey!”My pleasant if unremarkable experience with Bumble was slightly marred when I read this ludicrous passage in “Users swipe left (or ‘no’) and right (or ‘yes’) on profiles of potential partners. But on Bumble—unlike Tinder or Ok Cupid—only the women can begin a conversation…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.If no one says something within the first 24 hours, the connection disappears forever!One aspect of Hinge I loved and found super simple and helpful was profile customization.Users can pick “tags” for their favorite date spots and activities along with religion and race.
The company also plans to make incorporating LGBTQ.Hinge now syncs relationship status from users Facebook pages.Meaning those ratchet couples creeping for threesomes can now be instantly spotted and dismissed along with the dishonest and unfaithful. Bumble Bumble’s big feminist twist—only girls can send the first message—is rendered irrelevant by lesbianism.Perhaps this is because Hinge’s results aren’t warped by the pressure to provide endless options.Hinge provides users with a small batch every day, along with each match’s job, pictures, and connection to you.
