The community in the Philippines is thriving, thanks to these dating apps
The pandemic prevented us all from going out and meeting people. The LGBTQIA+ community, in particular, had it extra hard. There aren’t many spaces where we get to meet people, much less date. Thankfully, some of the best dating apps were made for us. Meeting people within our community is easier now.
Finding your perfect match is also easier since we can filter everything on these apps. You can pick your age preference, gender identity, and location.
Let’s look at these dating apps that are changing how we meet people in the LGBTQIA+ community.
Best dating apps for the lesbians
Fem – Videos are the primary way of advertising yourself through Fem. If you’re shy, you can also post photos. This app is for lesbians, but any woman looking to date or meet women can make an account. It’s available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
Her – It’s for lesbians, bisexual girls, queers, non-binary, and transwomen. Gender non-conforming people are also welcome. The app is available to download on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
Les – It advertises itself as a dating app for curvy singles. Lesbians, bisexuals, and queer women are welcome. It has a lot of 5-star reviews on the Google Play Store. That means a lot of successful relationships came out of it.
Lex – It’s an app with a minimalist theme and an interface that’s easy to navigate. Texting is the primary way of communicating with one another. It’s open to women from all parts of the spectrum, whether they’re looking for friends or a date.
Dating apps for the gays
Grindr – This is the number 1 global dating app for gays. It’s a hookup app, but some people met the loves of their lives here. You can set your location to a specific perimeter to meet people nearby.
Wapo – It has unlimited chat. You won’t have to transfer to a messaging app to keep talking to whoever you meet. This app is for gay, bisexual, bi-curious, and trans men. It’s available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
Apps for everyone else
Bumble – The app recently launched pronouns, and people can see them immediately. Matchmaking is easier now since you see preferences before you swipe. It also revamped its design, making it easier to look through bios.
Badoo – This app has more security features than Tinder, making it easy to weed out fake accounts. It’s become the app of choice for straight people, but the LGBTQIA+ community also seems to enjoy it. You can make friends or flirt with people and set your preferences as they are. It’s available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
OKC – OkCupid is like Tinder, but if we’re being honest, it’s better. People have left reviews saying it’s easier to navigate OkC, plus they get better matches. Straight people also use the app, but if you do your filters right, you won’t ever match with a straight person.
Yubo – This isn’t a dating app per se, but a chat and live-streaming app. It caters to teenagers, but adults are also welcome to use it. It’s a great way of meeting like-minded people.
Dating made easier
If you’re having a hard time socializing in person, dating apps are the way to go. These are platforms where you can express yourself freely. You can explore these apps and see which fits you and your dating style best.
