Dating. Whether you hate it a little or hate it a lot, it’s a rite of passage for most of us.
It’s also particularly challenging for members of the LGBTQ community, who’ve traditionally only had access to hetero-based sites and apps. When I was on the apps in the late aughts, queer women could barely be found. I met so many cis straight men who checked the “women seeking women” box so they could match with queer women who, they fantasized, would magically change their sexual orientation just for them. (Nope.)
Some of that hasn’t changed in 2018. But as the number of out LGBTQ people has grown, so too have their opportunities in online dating spaces. Queer-friendly dating apps and sites are multiplying, and there are even a few that are — wait for it — pretty damn good.
If you’re LGBTQ and hate leaving your home, you’re not alone. Here are the best dating apps and sites that’ll maximize your opportunities while minimizing your human contact. Bless.
They’re all worth a look or a swipe for that next hookup or serious relationship and are available on Android or iPhone.
