The major downside of Her is that everyone looks so cool that it’s difficult to work up the courage to actually like anyone.
But as I was scrolling, I accidentally liked someone who was clearly out of my league. "Hey" was four times more popular as a conversation opener according to Her's study.
The study found that, "after 44 messages you are most likely to get a positive response when you go for the digits." Because users are relying mostly on photos (although there is an option to include small text boxes on your profile) to get a sense of who they want to message, users go into each interaction without a lot of information.
While I had a few false starts—message chains that petered out after six or seven exchanges—I actually prefer Her’s setup to Ok Cupid, the dating app I’ve used most in the past.
I want to make this app a really fun place for people who are interested in open relationships, so that they can meet like-minded people, have a lot of fun and still maintain their health.
If you want to try the hacks for yourself, download Her from the i Tunes App Store, or request to be notified when Her is available for Android here.
Not only did I spare myself the messages from hetero couples looking to spice up their marriages, I also took more chances. Oh, your six things you couldn’t live without weren’t creative enough? I am a terrible coward who will use any excuse I can find to avoid interaction, so the lack of information available on Her worked for me.
When it comes to online dating, I can be a judgmental jerk-face. The other plus was that I couldn’t see how many people I’d liked.
I got a notification each time one of those people also liked me, but I couldn’t scroll through the users who hadn’t responded and wonder where I went wrong (like I tend to with unanswered Ok Cupid messages).
In the five days I used Her, I talked to 11 users, interacted with a global and local community, and (drum roll here) actually landed a date.
