With hundreds of women joining all the time it’s simple and easy to find a girl to chat, gossip, plan dates, meet for coffee, or one of those late late nights with a few glasses of wine in hand.
There’s also a lot of info about the scene and a matchmaker game.
Mostly-straight dating app Tinder had a projected 20 million active monthly users by April 2015, and gay male dating app Grindr, which on its fifth anniversary in 2014 had over 10 million user downloads, has been thriving for years now, but we have yet to see an app for lesbian and queer women really take off.

"Both said that this was a really common phenomenon: that dating sites have a notoriously low number of gay women, and that gay women are unlikely to flock to those services, ever." they exist, but even if you find one, the odds that she's your age and single and you connect with her on any romantic level at all are slim to none.
Being a same sex single looking for a long-term commitment can be a difficult process of bad dates, flaky people and your friends trying to set you up with their co-workers or cousins because, well, they're the only other gay or lesbian person they know!She might not think the first few guys are her type, but she could swipe for a few hours and probably find 15 guys she'd at least hook up with.And it's not a problem for gay men; about 70 percent of them report dating someone they met online.And because we’ve done (and will continue to do) that, the ultra-queer Thurst is making its bid for funding because they know the market exists. These apps mean different things to different people.But in case you’re using the term “work” in a more traditional sense, I met my fiancée on OK Cupid. And even when they don’t, you’re still out there meeting new people.
