Amazing but needs updates

I love this app. I love that people post everything from iso sex to I’m bored let’s chat gaming. I love that it’s queer focused and the age range and visibility range are massive. (I also love the teal coloring it pops beautifully.)

The vision of this app is gold. It does need some serious updating though. For one thing, the notification badges don’t show up for me (they are enabled in my phone settings). The messaging is glitchy all-around with the view not updating properly after a messages is sent. I’ve also had issues with the app crashing.

The layout could also be more user friendly: switch the tab placement for people’s profiles and your message thread with them. This way swiping left will send you back to your inbox, which is more useful than goin into their profile every time.

On queerbaiting

What I was looking for: a deeply intense friendship in which writers would get accused of queerbaiting if this were a TV show. In which we’d share a future, even if we never shared a bed. In which we’d write love letters like poets write about the moon, to admire, never to possess.

What Lex has given me: a deeply intense romance in which writers would get accused of promoting the gay agenda and seducing children away from traditional family values if this were a TV show. In which we share a future that includes snow days, laundry days, grocery shopping, vacations, inside jokes, food adventures, book discussions, all the profundities and mundanities that comprise the rich and colorful tapestry of lives well-lived, and lots and lots and lots of sex, joyous sex, tender sex, violent sex, make-up sex, wake-up sex, just-met-at-the-airport-an-hour-ago sex, pours-into-your-orifices-like-liquid-gold-and-splatters-your-internal-organs-in-molten-star-stuff sex, leaves-you-bruised-and-trembling-and-sore-for-days sex, ruins-you-for-future-lovers sex. In which we exchange love letters and think pieces, philosophical musings and future plans, and whisper longingly across 3000 miles utterly filthy thoughts of the ways we’d like to lay claim to one other, until we can let our bodies do the talking.

I asked for a chord, and received a symphony. Fair warning to all future users: be careful of what you don’t dare wish for. You might just get it.

Please read!!!

I never leave reviews on apps. Mostly cause I don’t care enough to tell people what I think. But this app-wow. Just wow. I’m sure by the time you’ve found this app you’ve already tried Tindr, Grindr, Taimi, Bumble, Meetme, Badoo etc- this is the magnum opus, the creme de la creme, this app works because it gets rid of the picture. It gets rid of the ability to like or not like someone based on what they look like and who I interpret them as. It works because it just brings people together regardless of what u look like. I feel like I’m getting repetitive so let me get to my favorite thing.

Never. Ever. In my 21 years of queer socializing have I met so many amazing people. Best part is they all live within 50 miles. With any other app it would give me people farther away just to get me to click more and use it more. This app has been nothing but wonders and I promise I’m not being paid to leave this review. Please. Keep this app a safe and wonderful place. Keep this a place that our community can use. Ik there isn’t really a way to keep bad people out or predatory straight cos people out but-as long as the team stays on top of getting rid of the bad apples that get reported- this app is the only social media app I need.
