Enter Hater, a dating app that actually encourages negativity. Instead of prompting the user to fill an empty “about me” section with enough wit to get a stranger to swipe right, Hater asks users to swipe on topics ranging from the profane to the profound. A few of their 2,000 examples: sad music; 5-dollar foot-longs; Harambe; flour tortillas; complaining. Swipe up to indicate you LOVE something; down to signal HATE; to the right to LIKE something; and to the left to DISLIKE.
"Haters Gonna Date Date Date: This App Matches Singles Based on What They Dislike" is from the February 09, 2017 Tech section of The Washington Post. It was written by Lisa Bonos and narrated by Barbara Benjamin-Creel.
