There’s no debating reality: lesbians are working with a far smaller potential dating pool than straight women, and (for reasons unknown to me) there are far fewer lesbian geared events than events geared at gay males.
We’re straight up less visible, and dating apps allow us to safely browse through girls WE KNOW like girls.
I love the internet and large groups of unknown lesbians give me anxiety-driven bitch face, so dating via the App store sounds like a fabulous idea to me. Online dating is nothing new, and while some straight people might hesitate to post their personals on the internet for fear of stigma, almost every lesbian I know has at some point gone online to find lurve or at least sex.
This veteran producer — who agreed to speak anonymously — has worked for 25 years in the entertainment industry and has never worked on “The Bachelor” franchise.
I imagine it must be equally difficult in the straight people scene, because the majority of us are probably too shy or too afraid of rejection.

The five seconds that I was on Coffee Meets Bagel, because it was five seconds, I just worried that they were judging me off my picture. I’m not that person that’s going to be on the computer. But even so, you identify with them, because you identify them as being a woman.
So I never met her throughout the audition process or even filming the pilot. But tapping into this character, and also having [director] Melina Matsoukas, who is Miss Fashion, has been fun. Melina was very particular with what she wanted to see on me. Do you think Molly’s style has influenced your own? You definitely don’t want people to see you on TV and think, “Wow, Molly is hitting it, but then in real life, not so much. I joined it with a friend, for mutual support, and I just couldn’t do it. I know people who have fallen in love and gotten married off of Match.com; it worked for somebody. Even if they’re not hitting it racially, as a woman, you’ve been in those scenarios, you’ve been in those types of relationship. I think we hoped that people of all races could watch and identify themselves, and not just think that it’s black people and that it isn’t for them because they don’t live in Inglewood.
