Ultimate List of the 10 Best Lesbian / LGBTQ+ Dating Apps

Dating Relationship Advice

In case you didn't know, Poppy and I (Chia) met on a dating app (you can read more about how we met here) and, just like your typical U-Haul lesbians, we made our relationship official after three dates and moved in together after a week. 😅

Since then, we've been together for seven years now 🤯 and we're indebted to technology for allowing us to meet each other — after all, Poppy isn't just my life partner, she's also my best friend, my therapist, my masseuse, my exercise coach, my foodie partner, and, well, my everything

So, while we've been out of the dating pool for a while, we thought we'd try to pay it forward and create a resource compiling all of the best dating apps that are either exclusive to or friendly to LGBTQ+ folks and lesbians in particular.

To make it easy to navigate the list below, any apps that include a 🏳️‍🌈 indicate that it was specifically designed for the LGBTQ+ community and any apps that include a 💕 indicate that it was specifically designed for women.

Bumble is like the Sadie Hawkins dance, but in app format — that is, women are expected to make the first move. You might be thinking that this would be the default expectation of a lesbian dating app but, hey, they were one of the first dating apps that changed the rules of dating in the hetero world! While the app is not specifically for LGBTQ+ users, it does allow users to filter results to find like-minded matches.

Hinge markets itself as the "dating app for people who want to get off dating apps" and even suggests that it was designed to be deleted. By asking users to provide unique answers to various prompts, they make it easier to start conversation and allow you to get a better sense of users' personalities. While the app is not specifically for LGBTQ+ users, it does allow users to filter results to find like-minded matches.

Tinder is the inventor of the romantic "swipe right" gesture that has transformed dating apps to-date. Available for local singles looking for love, a date, or just to chat, there's a little something for everyone if you come across a profile picture you like. While the app is not specifically for LGBTQ+ users, it does allow users to filter results to find like-minded matches.

Swipe right, I dare you! 🔥
