I just rejected her and she’s gone forever.’” Nothing existed for lesbians designed by lesbians until Her came along in September of 2013. Exton herself is gay, and says her San Francisco-based team is made up of four queer women and two straight guys. The profiles are reminiscent of Pinterest, the virtual bulletin board where users can “pin” favorite pictures.Exton originally named the service Dattch, a blend of the words “date” and “catch.” But she decided to upgrade the app after sending out user feedback surveys last November. On Her users can add multiple photographs with captions, or short descriptions and favorite quotes to their profile.The safety of gay women connecting online is one of my main priorities.I also wanted to create a community run exclusively by gay women who understand how difficult it can be to find genuine friendship or love.We offer you a very safe, private & friendly environment with carefully checked member profiles; we do not accept straight couples, men or sexually explicit images.As an added security feature we offer each member the benefit of blocking and reporting any suspect profile.The most prominent is Brenda, an app similar to Grindr that was created by a man.
