I’ve always been the one to say the first Hey
Have to swipe and skip a hundred million times
Had to get it better to know just what you like
Now I’m updatin’
You say update like I have never heard before
I’m indecisive but this time I know for sure
I hope that we’re not the only one that feels it all
Are you updatin’?

Ratings and Reviews
- One thing I did notice is that blocking someone doesnt work?
- Also, there is no block list so you cant even go to see who you’ve blocked/ unblock someone (if blocking them was an accident).
~ Example: it showed me my Facebook friends who are also on vina. I simply wanted to block one bc even tho I have her on Facebook I dont want her as my vina or for her to see me on there. I want NEW friends. So I blocked her (or so I thought) but when I go to the “add vinas” section on my profile SHE IS THERE under Facebook friends. I shouldn’t even be able to see her. I go to click on her profile to block her and my finger slips and I make her my VINA.. but no biggie I’ll just undo it, right? I go to her profile to block her and it gives me the option to..It will kick you off their profile like you’ve successfully blocked them but they are not really blocked. ~
- ALSO would be nice to see all the “Hey’s” you sent. To also have the option to take back our “hey” would be great too!
Developer Response ,
Thanks for reporting this and sharing your feedback! Sent this to our engineers and we are looking into issues with blocking ASAP!
If you have any other thoughts or feedback please feel free to email you email@example.com
The personality quizzes use a lot of #girlboss language and aren’t clear about what you’re choosing. One question was forcing me to choose between “yass queen” and “slay” for affirmations and another assumed all options for travel were these big expensive places. I was misgendered constantly even after it asked me who I was. There’s no option to be okay with friends from any gender, but specifically there’s no option at all to be non-binary looking for other non-binary people. I was connected instantly to a group of 5 but only one person spoke beyond a hello and I wasn’t sure the other people were real. The app has a real millennial, rich girl, sad minimalist aesthetic but no questions or connections that mean anything. I felt like I was at a company party for an abusive #ladypower start-up. This app doesn’t really seem like it breeds the kind of community I’d be comfortable with, but honestly any women meeting up from this don’t seem like they’ll have very genuine connections either. Also, TERF vibes. Why only advertise to women and non-binary people and continue to call the non-binary people ladies? Why emphasize the female empowerment aspect over a woman’s personality? I’m all for my and your rights but at a certain point it feels like something else is going on.
Have patience y’all!
First of all, the app is FREE. Don’t want to pay for the extra features? Don’t’! Nobody is making y’all! No wonder some of y’all don’t have friends you’re stubborn and ungrateful lol The developer of the app need to make their money too! I for one find the app very interesting. After downloading it last night I already matched with someone and we’ve been chatting. I feel like this app is brilliant and has soo much potential. You can plan dates, it even GIVES you IDEAS for dates, horoscopes and cute quizzes to take. Mind you, the. App. Is. Free. It’s also beautifully designed. Ive only dreamed of an app like this but never knew there was such a thing. One thing I will say is that it would be great if the app had more promotion like an add on Instagram, Facebook or even a commercial to get more people to use it. However so far I’m grateful and look forward to meeting new friends. Thank you developer for caring about us women that find it hard to make friends! You definitely took your time with this one 💕
