The membership base is very wide and spans several countries (you might just end up in a long-distance Swingtowns relationship)
Cupid Media never disappoints with its dating platforms. There are more than thirty networks in place and we’re going to talk about PinkCupid, a lesbian online dating service that’s winning hearts in the queer community. Most queer dating sites cater to all orientations and sexualities but this one is crafted for lesbian dating only. (And don’t take any pressure, you don’t have to strictly date, building friendships is always an option.)
Launched in 2006, PinkCupid is not new to the game. In fact, the reason behind the high user base is their credibility in the market. It is a very trusted site and you need only look at their testimonials section to confirm so. This will also liven your spirits and encourage you to not give up on online dating just yet. Seriously, their success stories are heart-warming to read. You can sign up for free but you’ll have to pay a membership fee to communicate with your match regularly. Naturally, this is something lots of users complain about.
There is an app version available on Playstore for Android. The interface of the app is quite good and their notifications are also instant. In a nutshell, PinkCupid is a good app to meet lesbians online. Like all apps, there are certain drawbacks to it – but as long as the merits outweigh the demerits, it’s all good, right?
You can’t talk about the best lesbian dating apps without including Lex (short for Lexicon) in the list. Most apps focus on ‘show and tell’ simultaneously. You have to have the most aesthetic photos and be a smart talker too. First impressions are based on a sexy selfie and most people don’t make it past the attractiveness round. This creates a lot of pressure for users who don’t like clicking pictures or uploading them for the world to see. Lex recognizes this ‘photo-pressure’ and discards it, focusing on just ‘tell.’
A text-centered app, Lex is available for both Android and iOS. It is inspired by a women-run erotica magazine from the 80s and was initially called ‘Personals’. The profiles are characterized by short posts written by the users (much like ads), describing what they’re looking for. Lex guarantees a safe space for its members and is owned and operated by individuals who identify as queer. It was created for non-binary people and is completely free – yes, you read that right.
A few users claim that the candidate pool is limited and that people tend to switch apps after a while because of technical glitches. Nonetheless, Lex remains a good place to interact with queer women and venture into the world of lesbian dating, especially if you’ve just come out of the closet. It has come a long way ahead – from an Instagram account in 2017 to a fast-growing unique app in 2022 – and we think its journey will only get better. Free lesbian dating apps like this one are rare to come by.
Hashtag Open (or #open, if you will), is not a niche lesbian chat app. Rather, it is a platform for ‘ethically non-monogamous’ people who’re looking for… well, anything and everything. You can identify in any way you like and state what you’re expecting from your match: a no-strings-attached relationship, a friends-with-benefits, a simple friendship, or something completely different. Here’s what’s more, you can date solo or as a couple – #open is sex-positive and encouraging of dating in all forms.
