Dating for people who hate people

Hater currently has approximately 10,000 active daily users nationwide.Online dating apps have always been somewhat of a wild concept to me.Since the rise of dating apps like Tinder and Bumble, we've been pretty on the fence about the whole thing.

“I think romantic relationships are the perfect nexus of everything that holds us back in life: social conditioning, patriarchy, family patterns, our desires for human connection, our fears of rejection, and our stories about ourselves and our potential.”After taking a step back from my feelings, I realized that my dating-related anxieties — the stress of keeping someone interested, but seeming fun enough, all while maintaining enough distance to be alluring, for example — put my emotions in the hands of my date.

I’d drive myself crazy over hypotheticals and the impossibly high expectations of a person I hadn’t even met yet.

Something about looking for a partner by swiping profiles like an admissions board reads through college essays makes the whole process quick and ideally efficient. This recently established dating app that helps you find that special someone by matching people who hate the same things.

You look for someone based solely on their looks and their listed interests. Yet, I guess that isn't too far off from finding someone without the internet's help. Founder Brendan Alper initially came up with idea as a joke, perhaps turning it into a comedy series.

The app connects people based on what they hate instead of the traditional way of matching people based on similar interests.

Apparently, people who hate the same things are more compatible than people who love the same things, at least according to the app’s designers.The topics widely vary, including everything from Donald Trump and paying extra for guacamole to butt selfies and Dominoes pizza.Oh, and biting ice cream — because apparently that's a pretty contentious one.Upon downloading the app, you're prompted to swipe to show how much you love or hate certain things.Swiping up denotes that you love a certain topic, while swiping down means you're so not about it.Through all of that, I had failed to consider the most important question: I asked Kara about practical ways to overcome and approach dating stress differently.
