HER logo

Meet, date, and make friends wherever you are. HER is social dating and networking app for the LGBTQIA2S+ community. That stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and/or Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, Two-Spirit, and any other way to identify oneself. 

This supportive community of over 30 groups is made up of 10 million queer folks. It’s a safe and growing space to be yourself and find your people.

HER doesn’t put any pressure on its members to find long-term companionship or love. They just want to create a space where queer people can feel comfortable enough to meet new people, have new experiences, and connect with each other. 

That’s the kind of dating experience and nurturing community HER is all about creating. To ensure bad actors are kept off the platform, HER encourages its members to verify their profiles and filter for verified profiles while using the app.

Signing Up for HER

To create an account with HER, download the Apple or Android app. Open the app and then sign up using your Apple ID, Facebook, Instagram, or phone number. After confirming the sign-up method you chose, you can then start building your profile.

You will be able to upload photos of yourself, provide facts about your lifestyle, and write a bio so others can get to know you before making contact. It’s also important to verify your profile so that more people notice you. HER claims that verified profiles get noticed twice as much as non-verified profiles. This also helps to weed out scammers and protect yourself.

All in all, the sign-up process should only take you 5 minutes. But they recommend providing as many details about yourself as you can when you fill out your profile. So we would recommend setting aside 15 minutes to complete the entire process.

Member Structure

There are estimated to be around 70,000 members in the UK, which isn’t bad for a niche dating app. You would be hard-pressed to find a lesbian dating app with a larger community. Plus, there are 10 million users worldwide, so you can also connect with people of different cultures and ethnicities.

The thing users like about HER the most is that you can find just about any type of relationship—friendships, casual encounters, dates, long-term companionship, and so on. Most people on the app tend to be in their 20s and early 30s, with the exception of a small percentage in their 40s and 50s. Members are generally very active on the platform and respond quickly.

Matching Process

There are a few ways to meet other members on HER. Much like Tinder and Bumble, HER has a “Meet” feature that presents members to you one at a time—roulette-style. These members will be suggested to you by HER based on your location and age preferences. You can either swipe left or right on a profile depending if you like or want to pass on them.

As a social dating app, HER also has a “Feed” feature that allows you to interact with members without matching. You can comment on photos and posts, as well as post things yourself. This allows you to interact with other members without the pressure of going on dates or meeting in person.

There are also events posted to your feed that you can attend. If there are any lesbian events in your area such as concerts, festivals, or shows, you’ll hear about them. This is a great way to meet lots of lesbians in a social setting. It can feel more organic and is also a great way to extend your social circle.

Contact Options

In order to make contact, you must already be mutual matches or friends. You won’t be able to send a message to anyone you want. It’s completely free to chat with mutual matches and friends with unlimited messaging.

HER does not offer a manual search feature, which means you won’t be able to find someone you’ve already passed on. You also won’t be able to search by different filters. However, if you want to discover more people, posting and commenting on the Feed area should help you meet more members.


We really like the design and feel of the HER app. It feels modern and innovative, making it easy to navigate and straightforward to use. The colours used in the app are also appeasing and everything seems really organised. Even if you’re not familiarised with dating or social apps, you shouldn’t have any problems figuring out HER.

What’s really impressive about HER is that they’ve managed to create a social media app and dating platform all under one roof without making it complicated. And since members use the app for a variety of reasons, it feels like a safe place with a community that’s welcoming and open to different ideas and lifestyles.


It’s accurate to say HER is probably the biggest and most popular lesbian dating and social media platform on the market. As a niche dating app, they’ve really attracted a lot of users to its platform. That’s because HER is inviting to over 30 different groups and doesn’t just offer an opportunity to find love, but also friendship, casual dating, and hookups.

If you’re unsure about using HER, don’t be. It’s completely free to use and takes minimal time to sign up. We would recommend trying out the platform and seeing who’s in your area before forming an opinion about HER. You never know, you might just make some friends along the way.
