Dating for people who hate people
“Plus, it’s easy to start a conversation with someone if you know you both hate pickles.” While hot topics might make it easier to connect with someone, discussing pickles isn’t exactly an instant connector for two total strangers. And, in a politically charged year, why not connect over topics you feel passionately about?
Disclaimer alert: You might not like what I’m about to say if you’re someone who is, um, e-x-t-r-e-m-e-l-y uncomfortable with the whole dating process. But dating shouldn’t unleash rabid insecurities; if it does, it’s a sign that you haven’t done your part in dealing with your issues so that you can put them to bed for good.
Launching on February 8, Hater will use an algorithm to pair people who despise the same topic, whether it’s cargo shorts or cilantro.“What we hate is an important part of who we are, but it’s often swept under the rug in our public persona.
We want people to express themselves more honestly,” Hater’s CEO Brendan Alper told the Observer.
From cargo shorts to Donald Trump, you can even submit your own topic ideas to the Haters site!
After scrolling through countless, continually changing topics, Haters starts presenting potential matches based on the topics you hate or don't hate. Despite being on the dating app market for only two months, Haters has amassed over 200,000 users.
Essentially we figured out the defining characteristics of attractive and unattractive guys.
One of the coolest things about Hater, though, is the insights that are coming from the app's use.
Some "hates" are pretty much universal: hangovers, for example.
It could be something serious and important -- like oppression or bigotry.
Or it could just be that thing you can't stand - like fedoras. Now, wouldn't it be amazing if there was an app that could help you match with potential dates based on your mutual hatred of cargo shorts? "Hater is making serious online dating more approachable by replacing cumbersome surveys and bios with a fun, alternative way to express your personality," promises the app's site.
