It’s unclear how many LGBTQ Jews live in North America, but assuming they’re proportionate for the population, and keeping in mind that the numbers grow smaller as we adjust for preferences—gay women, for example, want to date other women, not gay men—the options can be limited. It’s called “Saw You At Stonewall,” and while its mission is to set up LGBTQ Jews, by doing so it also brings to light specific issues queer Jews face when straddling multiple worlds.
Its founder is Joanna Halpern, who knows how frustrating it can be to try the usual options.
“It’s really difficult,” says Halpern, “You go on JSwipe, you swipe twice and you’re done.” Halpern is a gay woman who, fed up with limited dating app options, did what she and queer Jewish friends had been talking about for years: She made a site of her own.
Trainor’s app, Hey There, which officially launched this July, takes an old-fashioned twist on the modern swipe app.
And lucky for us, Hater used the data from hundreds of thousands of users in the US, and extracted the most hated topic from every state to make a hate-filled map.
New York women on mobile dating apps say they’re deluged by raunchy messages — 73 percent have received a sexually suggestive photo and 77 percent have been asked to send one.
According to Trainor, the idea behind the app is to personalize the impersonal by meeting through mutual friends like they did in the good ole’ days.
As where past generations met through family members, coworkers, and friends alike, Hey There allows users to add “wingers” or those who can aide in the introduction process and provide what Trainer calls a “warm handshake,” in the online dating world.
Hotline, which launched Monday in New York, wants to bring authenticity and discernment back to online dating. ” until after you’ve spoken on the phone at least once.
