We created a relationship platform that we actually enjoy being on

The #1 LGBTQIA+ Dating App

HER was the first app to launch that exclusively focussed on the needs of queer, bisexual and lesbian dating. While there were over 40 apps for other sexualities, not a single dating app existed for LGBTQ+ women and non-binary people until there was HER. Eight years later, HER has made over 300 million lesbian matches, thousands of queer marriages and hundreds of lil babies.  

HER is the world’s largest (and most iconic) dating and community-building platform for lesbian, bisexual, queer women and gender-non-conforming icons worldwide. Whilst most heteronormative apps focus on the experience of cis men (the people those apps make their money from), HER is designed to focus exclusively on the needs of queer women, non-binary and trans people.   

We have features to express the unique parts of sapphic culture that mean the most to you and your identity. We have community spaces to connect with other people like you. And we create a safe space amongst other sapphics to be yourself and focus on what’s important to you while finding your partner. 

With over 15 million users in more than 114 countries, you can absolutely bet that your perfect match — or perfect matches — are only a few clicks away. So, whether you’re looking for a partner or hoping to make new friends, HER has something for you. 

Let your most authentic self shine through

HER’s Most Unique Features

HER cares, and I mean really cares. Our unique in-app features reflect that. Our queer and lesbian dating app allows you to customize every little aspect of your dating profile so the most authentic version of yourself can shine brightly from day one.

Unlike the hetero apps, HER allows you to easily add your pronouns, gender identity, sexual orientation, and a litany of other fun facts and pins to your profile that make you, well, you! 

We go a step further than just giving you the option to list your basic lifestyle, like whether you’re sober, religious, or want kids someday. We also allow you to add Pride Pins to your profile so you can easily let potential matches know whether you’re QPOC, T4T, chapstick or masc lesbians, intersex, and more. You can even add things to your profile, like your love language, or include one (or a few) of our free Political Pride Pins to filter your feed according to the nitty-gritty social issues you care about the most! 

The best part? All of our core features are free and will remain free. Like, forever. That said, if you’re ever looking to upgrade your experience and take it to the next level, HER Premium offers one-of-a-kind features like incognito mode, rewinding profiles you accidentally swiped left on, seeing everyone who’s viewed you, and unlimited swipes. 

Join us today and discover what awaits you on the App Store or the Play Store.

Sapphic dating FAQ

What is the girl version of Grindr?

There’s a bit of a Grindr vibe for finding amazing women on HER, but we focus on fostering quality connections, not just quick hookups.

HER goes beyond just swiping, though. It’s a safe space to find iconic queer women, non-binary and trans people who are down for anything, from coffee dates to dance floor domination. 


Think of us as your modern-day Lesbos (that 6th century BC Greek island paradise), a place where sapphics gathered to celebrate art, music, and each other. Here at HER, you can match with someone who shares your passions and is looking for something real.

How can I find a lesbian partner?

Looking for a lesbian partner can be an exciting but daunting journey. It can take you down different paths, and each experience is unique. But if you’re searching for a welcoming and inclusive space tailored to the LGBTQ+ community, HER is an excellent starting point.

What should you do on a first date?

Feeling a little awkward? It happens to the best of us! Just relax, be yourself, and focus on getting to know the other person. Ask questions about their hobbies, interests, and what they’re looking for in a partner. You might be surprised at what you have in common!

What is the 3-month rule for dating?

At HER, we believe in open communication and following your heart. Talk to each other about what you’re looking for in a relationship and see if you’re on the same page. If you and your date click and want to define the relationship, go for it! There’s no reason to wait.

We know sex can be a lot to think about, so we’ve created a guide to first-time lesbian experiences packed with information and tips for lesbian couples. 


Talk openly and honestly with your partner about your desires, boundaries, and what feels good for you. The more you communicate, the more comfortable and relaxed you’ll feel, allowing you to enjoy the moment and create a truly intimate connection.
