New Dating App Matches People Who Hate On The Same Things
Dating apps typically ask their users to input details on sign-up. Those details include things users might be interested in predictable stuff like favorite TV shows or long walks on the beach. A new dating app goes to tread on the path less taken.
The "Hater" app is a dating app which lets people find potential partners based on things they mutually dislike. The app works by letting users to swipe on the screen with their finger in four different directions. The direction will then determine if the person loves, hates, likes, or dislikes a certain activity. It also includes ideas or particular people.
For example, users can have a say if they are into specific topics like "marijuana" or "gluten-free". Activities like "camping" or "Facebook stalking" are in the mix. Politically conscious individuals looking for an interesting date can find someone who might disagree with "Donald Trump", "Vladimir Putin" and "Build the Wall". As it is a dating app, phrases related to sexy stuff like "69," "The Missionary Position," and "Butt Selfies" are definitely not absent. User-generated topics is set to be added soon.
Brendan Alper, the app's CEO, says the concept was initially a material for comedy but he eventually realized that the "Hater" could be fully materialized in the real world. "The more I thought about it, the more I thought 'Hey even though this was a funny idea, it actually makes a lot of sense," said Alper.
Despite having hate as the app's main appeal, Alper notes that hate speech, bigotry and discrimination is unacceptable. The topics created by the users will be monitored.
"Hater" was initially tested by around 10,000 people in December. The app will officially be available for dating escapades on Feb. 8, 2017, just in time for this year's Valentine's Day.
