But as I was scrolling, I accidentally liked someone who was clearly out of my league. "Hey" was four times more popular as a conversation opener according to Her's study.
I will never stop feeling like my thumbs are too big to navigate an i Phone. My first message on Her was this stunningly creative gem: "Hey how was your weekend? Once I got over the initial fear of liking photos, I became a photo-liking fiend.
According to Her’s study, there are six ways for users to get more likes, more messages, and more dates while using their app. "Of all the times of the week this is the absolute peak, with not only the highest number of new signups but also the greatest number of likes being dished out.
As a new user you are 20% more likely to get a Like and 15% more likely to get a message." You sign up for Her through Facebook or Instagram.
While I was messaging her, I scrolled through other profiles.
The major downside of Her is that everyone looks so cool that it’s difficult to work up the courage to actually like anyone.
I’m terrible at dating in general, but my go-to online dating move is to get a message from someone cute, and never ever respond. So, when Robyn Exton, the CEO at Her (stylized as HER), a dating app centered on lesbian, bi, and queer women, asked me if I was interested in their latest study on the best hacks for their app, a small, scathing, and very single voice inside me hissed, "You need this." The PR photos didn’t hurt.
Who wouldn’t want to be in that pile of cute women?
The majority of responses were supportive and positive, but some users wondered if a space that started as one for women should open their doors to other genders.I chose Facebook, because my Instagram is 80 percent dog pictures and 20 percent meals for one.You also have to allow Her to access your location, but if you have a phone someone already knows exactly where you are all the time anyway, so with that pleasant thought in mind, I hit "Allow." This should’ve been an easy step, but somehow I don’t have eight pictures of myself taken in the last year.We utilize a Facebook sign-in process that is 100% safe and private to keep out guys and fake user profiles.Using Facebook for our verification allows you to feel comfortable knowing that all other users go through the same process and are female.I’m sure this is not the ideal way to do this hack, but it was also after nine at night, and I didn’t want to change clothes to take a picture of myself a hundred times and pick one where I didn’t look like I wanted to throw my phone out the window."Profiles that have a sexuality label (as opposed to the status 'No Label') are 20% more likely to get a like.
