You might have heard about Tinder or any other, the dating app that matches you based on things you like and your distance and other stuff that basically is same. Now, what if I told you we got another app that matches you on things that you hate in common? Wouldn’t that be amazing if you two can say trash about things that you hate and have a never-ending conversation about things you hate?
Here, let’s talk about that dating app named Hater, which matches you on things you hate in common:
Hater has a similar profile setup to that of Tinder and Bumble.
Expect for Self Description.
Instead, Hater has you swipe left to hate and right to love certain topics and things, such as saliva or people who clap when the plane lands. If you’re neutral on something, you just tap.
Once you’ve swiped enough answers, Hater starts matching you up with other people on the app and shows what percentage of things you both hate.
You can still see the list of things they hate in case they hate something you love — and then you know if it’s a deal breaker.
The app currently features 3,000 topics for you sound off upon, meaning that if you play for long enough, you can piece together a pretty accurate (and potentially terrifying) picture of the inside of your brain.
After that, Hater matches you with potential dates based on your mutual likes and dislikes, presenting you with a compatibility percentage and the option to swipe left or right based on their picture.
Once you’ve matched, you can then play an ‘icebreaker game,’ allowing you to bond over more shared hate rather than opting for an embarrassing opener.
The app started out as a joke.
Hater CEO Brendan Alper had quit his job at Goldman Sachs with aspirations of becoming a comedy writer. As he told the Cut, he had an idea for a sketch about a dating app that matches people based on things they loathe. “The more I thought about it, the more I thought, ‘Hey even though this was a funny idea, it actually makes a lot of sense,’” he said.
Science backs up Alper’s idea of matching people based on what they hate. A social psychologist at the University of South Florida, Jennifer Bosson, published a series of studies that found people form friendships more easily with people who hate the same things they do. People tend to form stronger connections if they share a common dislike rather than a strong interest.
Plus, being practical, you can talk about things you love for some time and feel amazing. But when you find stuff that you hate together you know there are no limits to babbling about that stuff.
Now, for eg, You can love Obama for some years and respect him and say some good words for him for some time, but you can hate Trump forever and abuse him any time for as much as time you can spare. And with a date, it’s perfect! Not that I hate Trump, just an example.😛
Looks like this app should be given a try!
