Our Review

Originally released in 2013 under the name Dattch (meaning date catch), this dating app was re-branded to HER in 2015. HER claims to be the most popular lesbian dating app, and sets itself apart from others by being an app made for queer women by queer women.

Aside from being a dating site, it also serves a social media platform where members can post status updates. 

HER has a more open approach, with the long-term goal of connecting queer women to their community rather than being a simple hookup app. It currently boasts over a million members in the US.

Signing Up at Her

Her Signup
  • You can only sign up from Facebook and Instagram
  • Your Facebook/Instagram name is automatically your HER username
  • They grab your Facebook or Instagram photos onto the app (can be edited later)
  • Sign-up in less than a minute
  • Email address is not required

HER only lets users sign up through their Facebook or Instagram accounts. They do this to verify the authenticity of those who would like to become a member. This has raised protests before because they would mistakenly reject "masculine-looking" women (since men are not allowed to make profiles in the app).

Register for free and enjoy the different features that the app can offer. You'll only spend less than five minutes to complete the process.

Once your account is connected, HER automatically grabs your profile photo, name, and birthday to build your HER profile. Photos can be edited later on

Making Contact on Her

Her Messaging
  • You can only send messages to Friends and Matches
  • Swiping left or right match function
  • Upgrade to see who "Liked" you
  • Sending friend requests is free

You can view the photos and names of the people who liked you, but you can't see their profile. Only premium members can do it.

Messaging is unlimited for free members, but messages can only be sent to friends and mutual matches.

Her Profile Quality

Her Female
  • Apart from photos, you can also upload text items
  • 8 photos are the optimum number of uploads (according to their stats)
  • You can view other members' friends list
  • Profiles are only on their first names
  • Shows their distance from current your location

    Profile details include your name, age, height, sexuality, gender identity, relationship status, photos, text items, and friends list. You can set your gender as female, non-binary, agender, FTM, gender fluid, intersex, two-spirit, and so many more. 

    Your friends list is public and available for viewing by all other members who visit your profile.

    HER suggest uploading eight photos for others to get to know you. Any less is insufficient and any more might be overbearing.

    Her Real Life Review

    "The app isn't the best when it comes to the dating part. The profiles are either too insubstantial, or some of the girls I talk to end up ghosting me. There's just not a lot do unless you upgrade to premium. However, I loved using this app to see which events will be attended by a big number of lesbians, since my gaydar in public isn't always the best. I've met a lot of great girls through that alone, and some of them I ended up going on dates with." - Bella, 24

    "I've read tons of good reviews about Hers so I've decided to try it. Well, I got no regrets! It's the best among all the female-exlcusive apps. But still not the best dating app though. Overall, it is a good app, it has a good design, the price is just good. So I'm all good." -Sheena, 27

    Design and Usability

    The design of the app is modern and sophisticated. Colors used for the app are pleasing to the eyes and the app is generally organized.

    It is easy to navigate even for those who are just not familiar with dating apps. 

    Since it is part dating app and part social media platform, members have more things to do with it. They can also know more about other users by reading their posts and status updates. It is also one way for members to voice out what they are feeling without worrying about being judged,

    Special Features

    HER created some special features exclusively curated for lesbians to meet and interact.

    Meet

    Meet is the main feature of the entire app. Here you are presented with different profiles who meet your age and distance preference. You can swipe to either like or dismiss them. Once you mutually like each other or are friends, you can message each other.

    Feed

    The feed is a feature that lets you interact with members real-time without needing to be matches or friends. You can like or comment on posts, and you can add your own image or text post. Being active on this feature exposes you to more people and increases your visibility.

    Events

    Events can be viewed and posted in the Feed. The best lesbian events in your area are posted here: from music festivals to cookouts to concerts to comedy shows. Attending these events will let you meet and socialize with lesbians.

    Editors Conclusion

    DatingScout.com Author Chris Pleines
    LGBTQ online dating can be intimidating in a straight-oriented industry, and HER has achieved its goal of solving just that. HER isn't originally a gay dating app just translated for lesbians, but an app with only queer women in mind from the very start. However, its re-branding from Dattch to HER in 2015 changed its system from 'lesbian dating app' to 'lesbian social app'. Yes, you will find women here, but you'll never know if they want to date or something more platonic. If you want other sites and apps that are more straightforward about dating, check our Matchmaking service category.
