Mostly-straight dating app Tinder had a projected 20 million active monthly users by April 2015, and gay male dating app Grindr, which on its fifth anniversary in 2014 had over 10 million user downloads, has been thriving for years now, but we have yet to see an app for lesbian and queer women really take off.
Daatch launched in 2014 and landed with a thud, primarily because many users reported a lot of technical issues and not enough women (a fatal flaw for a lesbian dating app).
This is why we streamline our services, provide a handy lesbian dating app, and provide helpful customer support.
Subsequently, our members are free to concentrate on the more exciting side of lesbian dating in Ireland – the dates themselves!
Struggling to find love in the lesbian dating scene in Ireland?
Busy work schedules and well established friendship circles can leave many lesbian singles finding it difficult to come into contact with fresh faces. There's only so much time you can spend in your local gay bar and then knowing who is gay, let alone who is single and interested in dating, is challenging to say the least. Although there are many lesbian dating sites available in Ireland, not all of them cater for serious singles, who are seeking long-term relationships. We accommodate those looking for love using intelligent matchmaking based on your personality traits and relationship objectives.
So how did online dating miss the lesbian community?
When a straight woman logs into Tinder, it's a totally different experience.
The hustle and bustle of modern life often makes it difficult to connect with other women.
Many people find that their work life doesn’t allow much time for dating, or that existing circle of friends don’t bring the opportunity to come into contact with fresh faces.
"We talked to a lot of people, including founders of other dating sites, and gay women we were friends with," Tessler says.
When Tessler decided to start online matchmaking service The Dating Ring two years ago, she couldn't get nearly enough gay women to match with the few gay women who had signed up for the service.
