Lesbian dating or at least the part where you try to find a date, can be tough, and sometimes you just get sick of trying to pick up women in bars or nightclubs. That’s why a lot of it has moved online, where it’s much easier to get in contact with people who share your interests, and you don’t have to guess if the beautiful girl that’s been looking your way is looking for you to approach her, or wondering where you got that cute top.

On top of that, at least according to this study, LGBTQ people are almost twice as likely to be using an online dating website or app. That just means that your options multiply, and there’s more proverbial fish in the sea. So, to get right into it, here are 10 of the absolute best lesbian dating sites you can find on the internet:



Lesbian Personals

Cupid Media is a huge name in the online dating world, and they own over 30 highly reputable dating sites that cater to specific niches. Pink Cupid is one of those sites, specifically tailored for women seeking other women. It’s suited both for bi-curious women who want to make contact and learn more about themselves and lesbians who already know what they want. What they want doesn’t necessarily have to be a relationship; there’s a bunch of users who would just like to make friends.

On the other hand, if you’re looking for a relationship, that’s covered as well. Find a friend or a soul mate – it’s all on the table with Pink Cupid. Lesbian dating has never been easier; with just a couple of clicks, you can find someone who shares your interests and start talking to them within minutes. The internet really makes the process of getting to know each other much simpler, and Pink Cupid is a prime example of this.

If you’re looking for that special someone to settle down with, and get out of the dating world, eHarmony is the place to go. Millions of single people looking for something real are on this site, and it might just be the perfect opportunity for you to find someone that’s looking for the same things in life as you. They are among the most trusted dating sites out there and claim to have helped over 2 million people find the love of their lives.

Apart from the matchmaking experience, which is state of the art, by the way, they offer access to numerous blogs and articles that deal with relationships in dating in general. On top of all that, they’ve recently added the option to go on a video date with someone you found on the website, which is a massive advantage in this day and age, where real meetups may be impossible.

Her

Her is the first app on our list, and it is a fantastic lesbian dating app that lets you find queer people near you very quickly and through a user-friendly interface. With millions of users, it’s almost a guarantee that you’ll find someone in your area that fits into your idea of a person who you’d like to have on a perfect date. It’s available in both the iOS App store and on Google Play so that you can access it from any mobile device.

What really sets Her apart from a lot of the other dating apps and sites pointed at the LGBTQ community is that it lets you find queer events near you. This fantastic feature means that not only you won’t miss out on any fun happenings in your area, but it also gives you an excellent place for meeting someone new before moving on to dating if you hit it off.

Zoe

Have you ever wished for an app that’s sort of like Tinder but better and specific for lesbian dating? If you have, let us introduce Zoe – a dating app that’s focused on finding matches for lesbian, queer, and bisexual women. It works much in the way the aforementioned app does; you swipe right if you like what you see and left if you don’t. If the people that you swiped right on also swipe right on you, you get a match, and can start chatting instantly.

The app itself is free, but there are paid features like a Premium membership that gives you the options to see who “liked” you, as well as some other cool additions. However, that is totally optional, and you can enjoy the main bulk of what the app has to offer completely free of charge. It’s very fast-paced, interactive, and lets you break the ice quite easily since you know that the other person already seems to like what they saw on your profile.

Elite Singles

Here we have one more site that’s pointed in the direction of helping you find long-lasting relationships. Elite Singles does exactly that, using their super-sophisticated matchmaking algorithm to help you find love.

The way their algorithm works is that you’re presented with a handful of potential matches every day, based on your and their listed preferences. They say that most of their users are there to find a steady relationship and that they are quite serious about making that happen. The user pool is actually slightly older than your average lesbian dating app, so if that’s something you’re looking for, head right on over to Elite Singles to find the partner of your dreams.
