“To us, having a user name on a dating site makes no sense," says Robyn."You’re not hotchick123, you’re Sarah and we’re going to meet up in a couple of days, so you may as well be upfront about what your name is!She’d spent her early 20s in the closet and now felt like a novice starting over again as a lesbian. Some people think the dating rule book is different for lesbians, but, really, dating is dating no matter the sexual orientation or gender identity of the person sitting across from you.Our dating experts see more similarities than differences between straight and lesbian dating cultures. Whatever your orientation, the whole point of dating is to build chemistry and connect on a personal level — and a dating site can give you easy access to your type of woman.When my friend came out as a lesbian, she was hesitant to try online dating.She worried about being judged, rejected, or just bad at attracting interesting women.Yet this is something Robyn Exton and Emily Moulder deal with every day.They're part of the three woman team, including front-end developer Vesna Planko, behind Dattch, a dating app designed to cater for lesbian, bisexual and bi-curious women.
