The idea is to create a community for lesbians looking to make friends, chat, and, of course, date.
Most of the women mentioned using Tinder, but said they disliked how they had to base decisions about potential dates on a single photo and then swipe the screen to either like or reject them.
In general, the crowd favored Ok Cupid, which features wordy profiles that give users a better sense of individual personalities. Only about half of the women in the room had heard of Exton’s app.
But she declined to disclose how many users that translates into or any other details. “It’s about simplifying how to talk to girls.” A sentiment, straight men could probably agree with as well.
Exton’s future plans include rolling the app out in more cities.
“I got lots of reactions like ‘You can’t possibly be a lesbian, you’ve got long hair,'” Exton recalled.
