While I was messaging her, I scrolled through other profiles.The major downside of Her is that everyone looks so cool that it’s difficult to work up the courage to actually like anyone.When a straight woman logs into Tinder, it's a totally different experience.She might not think the first few guys are her type, but she could swipe for a few hours and probably find 15 guys she'd at least hook up with.Not just the people that were using it but how they were using.We added the social features and we opened up who the app was for.
"When we first started Her we were creating an app with a very specific set of users and a very specific problem in mind–helping lesbian and bisexual women find a date.
According to Her’s study, there are six ways for users to get more likes, more messages, and more dates while using their app. "Of all the times of the week this is the absolute peak, with not only the highest number of new signups but also the greatest number of likes being dished out.
As a new user you are 20% more likely to get a Like and 15% more likely to get a message." You sign up for Her through Facebook or Instagram.
In the five days I used Her, I talked to 11 users, interacted with a global and local community, and (drum roll here) actually landed a date.
So, while I don’t have any hacks for IRL coffee dates, I do feel a little better about my chances of going on them in the future.
