Best Lesbian Dating Apps 2017-18 (Only For LGBTQ, No BullSh*t)!

Dating isn’t easy for everyone, for real. And, if you fall in the category of LGBTQ then it’s even harder. Traditional dating apps or dating sites are popular & more optimized for regular people. But, now things have been changed, and have become easier. Now, there are certain lesbian dating apps that are specifically built for this group.

Yup, there are popular hookup apps, but they are overcrowded and not very specific to LGBTQs. We shared gay apps, but today we are sharing one of the best lesbian apps that work nicely.

To make things easier for us, we asked you guys, and we got plenty of apps which specifically caters LGBTQ community. But, there is still going to be apps like tinder because they have nice database of dating users.

These apps are featured based on our personal experience and being suggested by our audience. None of the app being listed is sponsored (Just to clear the air). So, without any further ado let’s get right into our topic, i.e.,

Best Lesbian Dating Apps

1. Her

HER is a great place to make great gay and queer friends that you might have always dreamt about. HER is an app made for LGBTQ women, by LGBTQ women. Unlike most of the sites, Her has a big database of LGBTQ group, and it’s totally free to join the site.

Her solves another big issue for people. If you’ve used free hook up or one night stand apps, then you might have noticed that a lot of boys create fake profiles pretending to be a girl which is disgusting. So, how HER solves this problem?

Her needs you to connect your Facebook account with App so that you can create a profile on HER. This allows HER to filter the people who don’t belong to the category of LGTBTQ.

Like other apps, you can upload pictures, and provide information about you, your bio. You can also heart each other’s picture there or add as a friend. You would also be able to read articles related to the Lesbians.

Overall, if you’re looking for a best Best lesbian dating app, then HER would be the best contender (as of now). Also, you would be able to enjoy LGBTQ meetups, parties and festivals happening near you which are submitted and curated by their community.

2. OKCupid

OKCupid is another great app for lesbians. This app is pretty popular because the overall working algorithm of this site/app is very flexible. You get a lot of customization option. OKCupid has 12 sexual orientations and over 20 gender markers to choose from. So, regardless of who you’re and what you want, OKCupid has got you all.


OKCupid asks you a set of questions which allow you to see the match % with a person. It might not be a great deal for everyone but if you’ve nice compatibility, then things would be smooth down the road (either you’re looking for a friend, date or getting hooked up)

OKCupid gives you options to find people based on ethnicity, location, age, height, religion, smoking, drinking, drug use, etc. Despite being free, you would be able to send unlimited messages. The best part about OKCupid is that there is an option which allows you stop seeing by straight people which is a great filter for LGBTQ group.

3. Bumble

Bumble is one of our favorite lesbian dating apps. It’s not specifically built for just same gender people, but there are options like “Interest” which pretty much makes it specific for you guys. Bumble has a unique concept which sets it apart from regular dating sites..(here is how).

In bumble, Women have to make the first move. So, you won’t have to beg for the chat. And, for the same gender connections, or friendship, either person can make the first move. Now, there is more to it. If a woman doesn’t make the first move within first 24 hours, then connection disappears, and same would be with same gender connection.

In case, you don’t have the time or other person doesn’t have time then the connection can be extended for next 24 hours. Other than that, it’s a fun app to use. It shows the people you want to see and let them connect by a mutual opt in by swiping right.

Bumble also has a blog which is named “BeeHive.” There you can read blogs for officials, but you would also be able to read the blogs being uploaded by the regular users of Bumble (like bumble success stories). There you can learn tips being shared by others. Here is one picked by us: What My First Girl Date Taught Me.

4. Hinge

Hinge is another reliable and free lesbian dating app which is available for both Android and iOS users. Hinge creates meaningful connections among those bold enough to seek real relationships. Hinge is pretty much similar to the Tinder, so if you’ve used the Tinder before then, you will not find problem learning that how this app works.

Hinge needs your Facebook account to get integrated with it only then it would work. It will find some friends of friends who are interested in Girls. Facebook authentication ensures that there will always be a mutual friend between the users.

Unlike Tinder, Hinge shows you a few matches and more compatible matches so that you don’t have to waste hours swiping through each profile. Now, it might sound deal breaker to a few but that’s how this app works.

Here are few key features that you should really take care of. The source is discovered on Askmen’s blog post. (Also mentioned in our gay dating apps‘ article)

Avoids “randos” by only matching its users with Facebook friends of Facebook friends

Displays your mutual friends, which avoid meeting up with an ex’s pal, your parent’s friend, or otherwise

Shares interests that encourage real life meet-ups rather than lingering on the messenger, for example, you’re both into dessert, why not meet up?

5. Fem

FEM is a free video dating app for lesbians and bisexuals; it’s a great app to make new friends, chat, meet singles, socialize in chat rooms, date and more. You can browse through videos of lesbian ladies nearby and around the world.

Like other apps, if you like a woman you’ve to press like and if they like you back, then you would be able to chat. There is an option available for the group chat which is innovative, and we haven’t seen any other app we used before.

If you like someone from the group chat, then you can click on the thumbnail of their picture. It will redirect you to their profile where you can see their profile picture, bio, and other stuff. In case, you don’t like someone then you can even mute them in your group chat, as simple as it could get.

You can privately message your matches. You would be able to share messages in the form of texts, videos, and audios. FEM is fairly new to the market but has collected pretty good rating over the Google Play Store.

The downside of this app is that this app doesn’t have big users’ database; therefore you might not be able to see the women around your area. Like, you might be from the USA but would be watching a woman from the Filipino. Also, this app is new, so we will recommend you not to optin for any paid subscription.

6. Tinder

The above apps all were alternatives to Tinder but there is no way that we would get away without featuring Tinder on our list. We have featured Tinder at the very last because it is widely popular and you would have exited our site seeing the obvious app being mentioned our list.


Initially, Tinder was a noticeable place for straight people only. But, with the rise in their popularity and gigantic user database, Tinder became the power house of bise*ual dating app as well.

Tinder has a very smooth interface and probably the best interface. You swipe right (for showing interest) and swipe left (if not interested). You can find heck lot of gay girls, but you’ll be shown boys in your match list (unfortunately).

The problem with Tinder is that it is overcrowded and girls hardly initiate the chat or take the first step. So, if this is one of the reasons you left using Tinder then we would recommend reading you the articles we shared below (It will greatly impact the conversation conversion in a positive way)
