20 Popular Lesbian Dating Apps That Are All Free to Download - Twitsh

We all know that dating isn't easy. For adults who don't have the ease of walking by your crush in the school cafeteria or passing notes to that cutie


Best Lesbian Dating Apps

Maybe your dating game has gotten a bit rusty as a result of a long time of social isolation? Perhaps you've recently ended a significant relationship and are beginning to consider your choices. Finding a suitable new companion is difficult in any case. Sure, it may be enjoyable, but finding that spark or connection might feel a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack—especially if you know precisely what you want and would not accept anything less. (Congratulations!)

For better or worse, there are hundreds upon dozens of paid and free online dating apps and services available today to help you on your quest to find love. According to Statista, the online dating audience is predicted to increase to 37.5 million members by 2023. According to eHarmony, 70% of couples will have begun their relationships online by 2039.

While these services may certainly provide a low-stress, handy method to meet someone (or a few someone...), the sheer amount of options—both accessible platforms and registered users—can make online dating feel overwhelming.

It is, however, feasible to make that dating world feel manageable—ghosting and all—by finding the perfect software. There are specialist sites for folks who enjoy farming, bacon, or even beard-stroking, for example (yes, seriously).

These online dating apps (many of which are free) cover all the basics if you're wanting to build a larger connection with, example, someone over 45, freshly dating after divorce, or hoping for a serious commitment.

As you re-emerge into the world in 2022, here are some of the best dating apps to try out. (What's the best news? They're all free too)

1. Hashtag Open

#Open is an inclusive app for morally non-monogamous people, no matter what their relationship status, orientation, or identity may be. It aims to enhance society as a whole by doing research and teaching that protects and elevates vulnerable people, as well as offering a space where everyone can share their complete self in a respectful and inclusive environment. What's not to like about that?

2. Match

Match is one of the most successful online dating applications of all time, having evolved from a website-only service to a website-plus app. And, because of its illustrious history, it has a particular attraction for people aged 40 to 65 who are searching for a long-term relationship; according to SurveyMonkey, 59 percent of those aged 45 to 54 use Match, more than double the percentage who use Tinder. You can get it for free, but you'll just be able to browse; memberships start at $20 a month if you want to actually message possible partners.

3. Lex

Lex is a text-based software for queer, trans, gender non-conforming, two-spirit, and nonbinary persons with a clear zero-tolerance policy for intrusive or discriminating conduct. It's based on newspaper personal advertisements (remember those?) and emphasizes the words we use to describe ourselves and our relationships rather than physical looks.

4. OurTime

Dating apps aren't exclusively for millennials; a study by technology and research firm Morning Consult found that 20% of internet users aged 55 to 64 have used a dating app or service. Instead of encouraging users to look for hookups, OurTime encourages them to look for pen-pals, friends, dates, long-term relationships, and marriage partners. You may exchange emails, flirt, and match with possible mates for free, but a premium subscription ($30 per month) unlocks extra services like seeing who has liked your profile.

5. Her

Half social media site, part dating app, Her was made by and for women who identify as LGBTQ. It's a terrific site for women, nonbinary, trans, and gender-nonconforming people to find love in or queer community because it also has a schedule of events, even if you're not searching for a one-on-one date.

6. Bumble

Bumble stands apart from the slew of other dating apps in the app store by asking women to initiate contact when a match is struck. You only have 24 hours to send a message in the free version. If that feels like too much pressure, consider a Boost membership, which starts at $7 for a week. The app is popular among women since it reduces the number of unwanted messages, but it is also popular among males. In fact, in PCMag's poll, 59 percent of respondents chose Bumble, presumably because it relieves some of the strain of starting. You also have the option of going on a video date in-app if you've found someone you like.

7. Fem

This is the ideal dating app for TikTok aficionados. Fem places more emphasis on videos than other platforms, and it also allows for group conversations if that's your thing. Never fear if you're not a video person. You can limit yourself to still images. It's also not exclusively for women, despite the moniker.

8. Tinder

Tinder may have spawned "hookup culture," but it remains one of the most popular free dating applications in the United States. It has around 8 million users, making it the most popular dating app according to Statista

That implies you have a good chance of matching with someone who piques your interest eventually, even if it takes a lot of left-swiping to get there. As previously stated, the app is free, but premium features such as Tinder Plus start at $5 a month.

9. Lesly

With a swipe mechanism similar to the dating app O.G. Tinder, this queer dating app enables women and nonbinary individuals to discover love, hookups, or simply a fun date. You can be sure the person you're matching with isn't a bot because the team assesses registered users for authenticity.

10. Plenty of Fish

POF, another of the first dating websites that transformed into apps with the goal of finding a relationship, had 90 million members in its prime. It's still popular (Statista placed it second), and according to the app, you're 2.7 times more likely to start a discussion in your first 24 hours than you are on other applications. The app discovered that 45 percent of its female users are single moms and that they find a mate 10 percent faster than the typical user. Start with a free download and swipe, then upgrade to add additional photographs or appear first to possible mates for $20

The site also boasts a lengthy track record of success, as well as a slew of testimonials that will restore your faith in love, having been in business since 2006.

12. Hinge

Hinge will begin pairing you with people who have the same interests once you complete the free app's quiz and prompts (think traditional icebreakers like "my biggest pet peeve is..." and "my go-to karaoke song is..."). The program also suggests your "Most Compatible" mates, who are eight times more likely to go out with you, according to the researchers. The app not only informs you how many people like you, but it also tells you what they enjoy about you, making it simple to strike up a discussion.

13. OkCupid

While OkCupid began as a dating app for heterosexual couples, it has now expanded to include a wide range of LGBTQ+-friendly gender identification and sexual orientation choices, making it significantly more inclusive than similar applications. And, because OkCupid dating profiles are longer than most, this one might help you make sure you have a lot in common.

14. Zoosk

It now boasts more than 49 million active users, many of whom are paid members who are serious about finding a mate. Rather than requiring you to complete a long questionnaire, the app's algorithm keeps track of who you're talking with in order to better match you with possible mates.

15. Bounce

Bounce innovative structure is worth a look, even if it isn't officially a lesbian dating app. When users "check in" to go on a date, they are paired with other local singles in real-time. You have one minute to determine if you're up for it, after which the program selects a meeting location for you. If you're up for a little adventure, this is the game for you.

16. eHarmony

eHarmony is a household name at this time. It's Match greatest rival, with 31 to 45-year-olds and 56 to 65-year-olds as the two largest age groups.

Members with a premium subscription can also embark on a video date before meeting in person.

Coffee Meets Bagel curates and sends you great matches—or "bagels" as they call them—every day at noon.

The app incorporates artificial intelligence to enhance pairing and includes features such as Hily tales to help you better capture who you are. The software is free, but a subscription for ad-free and incognito mode access is available.

19. Happn

Happn is a free dating app that might help you rekindle those long-lost ties. You may connect with others on the app who are also nearby by utilizing the location on your phone. With over 100 million members globally, there's a good possibility you'll find your new crush.

20. Inner Circle

Inner Circle demands all users to adopt "The Date Better Pledge," which explains a commitment to be "respectful, reliable, and inclusive," if you're serious about meeting your other half and want to avoid swiping into the abyss. You can escape the dreaded one-liner "hello" texts with the free app's rich profiles, unique filters, and discussion prompts.
