New Dating App 'Hater' Matches Users Based on What They Dislike
Just in time for Valentine's Day, a new dating app helps people find love based on what they hate.
The app Hater asks users how they feel about a variety of different topics and then matches them based on what they dislike.
It's not all about hate however. People can "Like" the matches they wish to contact.
According to the app, the most hated topics include Donald Trump, bullies, slow drivers and mosquitoes.
Users are required to have a Facebook page, and the app is only available on iOS at this point.
More than 200,000 people have signed up for the app, the creator told the Boston Globe.
Brendan Alper, a Rhode Island native, explained that he left a job at Goldman Sachs to pursue a comedy career and started doing a "bit" about a hate-based dating site.
He told the paper that the 2016 election made him realize that the idea could actually work as a business.
