The introduction of High There, which already boasts , users and 25, to 35, matches daily, demonstrates changing attitudes about weed legalization and online dating as both become more normalized. One of those is social connectivity. Aside from providing photos for their profiles, High There users can also include a character lolol "My Story," in which they can talk more about themselves and their preferred kind of relationship.
High There is free and available worldwide for iOS and Android. OneGoodCrush was only launched a couple of weeks ago in July, and is a Tinder-style dating app meant for relationship seekers of all gender identities and all sexualities.
While apps like Tinder and Hinge allow users to identify as gay, lesbian, straight, or bisexual, they stick to the gender binary when they ask users to identify themselves. OneGoodCrush rejects the binary by not only providing the options of woman and man, but also trans man, trans woman, and queer. Additionally, users are provided the same options when asked to identify the genders with which they prefer to match, which combats the disgusting societal transphobia that shames cis men for dating trans women.
The app already has , users, and is meant for both hookups and long term relationships. Trish McDermott, the app's strategic adviser, spoke to USA Today about the continued lack of transgender inclusivity in online dating that OneGoodCrush wants to change. In a society where trans women are getting banned from Tinder due to reports from transphobic users , OneGoodCrush will hopefully become a safe, progressive, and successful space for trans folks who utilize dating apps.

Now, I feel like you're looking down at your phone, and they'll get a notification that they just missed a connection with so-and-so.
The love of their life will be right ther e. Going out on dates is exhausting and stressful, isn't it? Sometimes don't you wish you could just stay in with some TV and night cheese instead?
