I read an interview with the women who started Her ages back, and they would get guys all the time trying to sign up.
Even though they had to do a phone interview at the time to confirm.
They’d be like >Yeah I wanna sign up>Okay, but you do realise this is a datinng app for lesbians? Women who love women?>yeah>So…why are you trying to join?>Because I wanna date lesbians!
I’m paraphrasing but yeah.
It’s the most ridiculous thing. They see women who are into women and decide they want in on that, and obviously THEIR particular dick is the magical one that will turn the tide to heterosexuality!
I got so many dick pics from random guys when I was on okcupid, and all of them came from profiles that claimed to be women. The photos were just pictures of the guy though - they weren’t even trying to hide
Just ‘it wouldn’t let me message lesbians unless I said I was a gay woman so here I am!’
Thankfully I never got catfished back then though man, I was so lonely I’d have probably fallen for it out of desperate hope.
