Our Review

Originally released in 2013 under the name Dattch (meaning date catch), this dating app was re-branded to HER in 2015. HER claims to be the most popular lesbian dating app, and sets itself apart from others by being an app made for queer women by queer women.

Aside from being a dating site, it also serves a social media platform where members can post status updates. 

HER has a more open approach, with the long-term goal of connecting queer women to their community rather than being a simple hookup app. It currently boasts over a million members in the US.

How to Sign Up for Her

Her Signup
  • You can only sign up from Facebook and Instagram
  • Your Facebook/Instagram name is automatically your HER username
  • They grab your Facebook or Instagram photos onto the app (can be edited later)
  • Sign-up in less than a minute
  • Email address is not required

HER only lets users sign up through their Facebook or Instagram accounts. They do this to verify the authenticity of those who would like to become a member. This has raised protests before because they would mistakenly reject "masculine-looking" women (since men are not allowed to make profiles in the app).

Register for free and enjoy the different features that the app can offer. You'll only spend less than five minutes to complete the process.

Once your account is connected, HER automatically grabs your profile photo, name, and birthday to build your HER profile. Photos can be edited later on

    If you cancel your premium subscription, you can still use the benefits of the membership until the end of the period. But you won't be refunded for the remaining days. When it's due to renew, your premium membership will be inactive and you won't be billed again. You can only ask for a refund within a month of a transaction. 

    Uninstalling the app or deleting your profile doesn't automatically cancel your subscription.

    Special Features

    HER created some special features exclusively curated for lesbians to meet and interact.


    Meet is the main feature of the entire app. Here you are presented with different profiles who meet your age and distance preference. You can swipe to either like or dismiss them. Once you mutually like each other or are friends, you can message each other.


    The feed is a feature that lets you interact with members real-time without needing to be matches or friends. You can like or comment on posts, and you can add your own image or text post. Being active on this feature exposes you to more people and increases your visibility.


    Events can be viewed and posted in the Feed. The best lesbian events in your area are posted here: from music festivals to cookouts to concerts to comedy shows. Attending these events will let you meet and socialize with lesbians.

    Editor's Conclusion

    DatingsScout.hk Author Chris Pleines
    Chris Pleines
    Founder of Datingscout and Author of the book "Online Dating for Dummies"
    LGBTQ online dating can be intimidating in a straight-oriented industry, and HER has achieved its goal of solving just that. HER isn't originally a gay dating app just translated for lesbians, but an app with only queer women in mind from the very start. However, its re-branding from Dattch to HER in 2015 changed its system from 'lesbian dating app' to 'lesbian social app'. Yes, you will find women here, but you'll never know if they want to date or something more platonic. If you want other sites and apps that are more straightforward about dating, check our Matchmaking service category.
