I scrolled through hundreds of photos of Her users, liking photos of a chef, a dancer, a medical student, and dozens of pet owners posing with their fur-babies. In the week that I was hacking the app, Her announced a major change—an option to list your gender on your profile.
"When we first started Her we were creating an app with a very specific set of users and a very specific problem in mind–helping lesbian and bisexual women find a date.
According to Her’s study, there are six ways for users to get more likes, more messages, and more dates while using their app. "Of all the times of the week this is the absolute peak, with not only the highest number of new signups but also the greatest number of likes being dished out.
As a new user you are 20% more likely to get a Like and 15% more likely to get a message." You sign up for Her through Facebook or Instagram.

My first message on Her was this stunningly creative gem: "Hey how was your weekend? Once I got over the initial fear of liking photos, I became a photo-liking fiend.Unsurprisingly, it was the photo of my dog trying to lick my face.
