Her, the dating app for lesbians and bisexual women, goes national

her dating app is now available nationwide  the for lesbians and bisexual women goes national
Her, the mobile dating service that caters to lesbian women, has announced that it’s available nationwide. The app promises there are “No men, no fakes. We provide a safe space for gay and bisexual women so you know you’re talking to real people.”

Previously, Her was only available in seven cities across the United States, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Boston, Chicago, Phoenix, and Miami.

Founder Robyn Exton responded to Digital Trends with a statement saying that the app was receiving hundreds of thousands of requests per month in most cities across the United States, which is far more than it ever saw before. And so the company decided to break free from the request form and make it available to everyone across the United States.

The Her app requires Facebook sign-in, verifying that only women are on the app. Users can add as many photos to their profile as they’d like, and are encouraged to update just like they would on Facebook. The app also offers written content and cool events where lesbian women can meet and connect.

Exton told TechCrunch that she believes all of the content is what has helped increase the demand for the app: “All of the content on the feed is sharable, so girls who don’t have the app yet are still seeing articles and event postings, and ultimately heading to download the app.”

Previously known as Dattch, Her was relaunched with a new name in March, and received $1 million in funding from investors including Reddit’s Alexis Ohanian, YC’s Garry Tan, and Michael Birch.

Exton said in a blog post that most people thought the old name Dattch stood for somewhat offensive words like “dyke,” “butch,” or “snatch,” and that’s why she wanted to rename the name to Her.
