A sign of the times, the latest dating app to enter the busy scene matches people based on the things they hate, rather than their similar interests.
Be it a hatred of the “liberal elite” or “alt-right”, or mild distaste for slow walkers and gluten-free food, Hater wants its users to bond over the things that get them riled.
Hater bills itself as an app that will help you “meet someone who hates the same stuff as you”. It encourages users to express their opinions on a wide range of topics from Donald Trump to camping to paying for extra guacamole.
Unlike the politicised app Remainder, which launched in the wake of the Brexit vote, Hater is not only focused on political views. In fact, it can ensure people fed up of hearing about the political world find someone who will steer clear of Trump and Brexit.
To express their opinions, users are asked to swipe in different directions to indicate if they love, hate, like, dislike or are indifferent to a person, activity or concept.
