Ever have one of those first dates thats ripe with “same!” exclamations as you explore every topic, finding common ground? Chances are good you felt that chemistry because you both pick onions off your hamburgers or neither of you like all-inclusive resorts for a vacation. How come? According to research, its more likely that youll feel a stronger connection to someone based on the things you dont like as opposed to the things you do. Thats why Hater was created: a dating app that, as the name suggests, connects singles to other solo-flyers who dislike the same activities, foods, celebrities — you name it. While the app is still relatively new, coming up on its first release anniversary, Shark Tank investor Mark Cuban invested $200,000 in the idea since it quickly picked up steam with more than 20,000 members in just a few weeks. Today, the member count is unknown, but reported to be high, since, hey, chatting about what bugs you is a common, enjoyable pastime.
What sets this particular download apart, though, is there are two ways to swipe. In fact, the premise of the app is to be vocal about your opinions — regardless if you are anti-President Trump or could care less about fro-yo; the more you express what makes your blood boil, the better matches youll reap. Once youve had your fill of scrolling through possible things that could incite anger, you can then swap your efforts toward other users. When you go through profiles, youll not only see their candid — and likely sarcastic — images, but you can see every hate theyve “swiped right” on, providing an easy, no-brainer way to strike up a conversation. As far as new, trendy dating apps go, this one is definitely worth a try, considering its been steadily growing more than other competitors. Plus, it might even be a dose of fun (and, well, hope and humor) you need when youre waiting in line at Starbucks or pushing your way through a boring meeting.Read More
