Gather is for Catholics who want to start something real and get off dating apps. Gather Members are 3x as likely to get a match as on other dating apps, and we're the #1 Catholic dating app.

Swiping is dehumanizing. We believe in Catholic teachings and build the app to affirm our humanity. That's why we have richer profiles and let people like and comment on specifics aspects of your profile, as they would in real life.

* We learn your type. Quality over quantity.

* We give you a better sense of their personality. You’ll get to know other Catholics through their unique answers to prompts, both Catholic and other. There's more to being Catholic than mass on Sundays.

* We make it easy to start a conversation. Every match begins by someone liking or commenting on a specific part of your profile.

* We work to get you on dates. We don't want to keep you on the app and are focused on getting you on real dates in the real world where real relationships happen.

The app is free to use. Members looking to see who likes them or to set advanced preferences can upgrade to a Premium Membership.

The location system

Hi the location system is quite bad, you should be able to manually adjust it, at least a little bit. My location says im at some LLC, Im not. I should be able to move it to somewhere im near that actually makes sense.

Hi andybobjr, thanks for letting us know about this. We've added this to our task list to be resolved this week.

Thanks for helping to make the app better :)

50% scams, 50% cool

A solid 50% of the profiles I have interacted with on this app have been scammers/catfishers. This is probably because the app has no security measures to verify that you are who you say you are when creating an account. So, ladies be wary!

However, the other 50% have been real gentlemen, and I have made a few friends. I like that it is a specifically Catholic app and I like that it is free. It is simple and not overwhelming, and that’s nice. Notifications are inconsistent, user base is minimal, and (at least on the free version) there is not the ability to create separate profiles for friends vs dating, but those are all little issues that I imagine will be worked out in time. The only big issue is the lack of security during setup that allows for so many fake accounts.

Developer Response ,

Hey, thank you so much for submitting this. We know that scammers have been a problem, and we're going to be working on verification and other fixes this month.

Happy to report that notifications are fixed, though! And we'll be growing a lot more in the coming months, so the user base should increase (fingers crossed) haha

Thanks so much for helping to make the app better :)

Unsafe app

This is a terrible app. There are too many scammers and catfishers in here.
I also tried to delete my account and received a notification that my account was deleted but still keep receiving notifications of people liking my profile. I was also able to login and saw that my information was still there— account was not deleted.
There is no customer service support. The help feature brings you to a Google form for you to submit only and even asks the question, “What can we do to resolve your issue?” I mean, the point of us asking for help is that we don’t know what to do. There is also no customer support email or phone available. The app website does not show transparency of who is behind the app. This app has never been supported by any legitimate Catholic ministries for friendship, daring, or relationships.

Developer Response ,

Hey, I'm really sorry we gave you such a poor experience. Some updates:
1. We drastically reduced the scammers
2. We fixed the deletion bug you mentioned

Please email us at for the best, fastest customer support.
