Lazbian dating site

After all, she says, it's easier to ask all of your friends what that cute girl's situation is when they all know her and probably have for years.While that's obviously the same in straight dating, straight people don't have to figure out just how straight someone is, worry about navigating a relationship with someone who's not out, or potentially have to deal with someone using them as an experiment.

My friend Laura, 27, who identifies as queer and has been out for about seven years, says that while these dating apps have allowed straight and questioning women to explore their sexualities more, they're also a risky endeavor for queer women.Lauren O'Reilly, Director of Marketing at OKCupid, says that of their current 10 million active users, women seeking women only comprise 7 percent of that.But the good news is that since the site expanded their gender and orientation options, they've seen a 7 percent rise in female LGBTQ users, suggesting that many women may have felt stifled by the need to identify as one gender or one sexuality, which could also be an issue when trying to get queer women on a lesbian-specific app.Everyone and their brother has their own dating app, and investors often aren't interested in this space," Kay says."Even if you had a team working really hard for a year on building the best LGBT app out there, but even after all of their work, they only had 1,000 users — then due to that small pool, users probably wouldn't get great matches, and they'd hate the app and not refer their friends, and then it would die."Andrew Chen, an advisor/investor for tech startups including Dropbox, wrote on his blog that in general, it's hard for any dating app to attract interest from investors.
