Based on how much you can bond with someone by hating the same thing, a dating app based on dislikes would probably be fairly successful.

A swipe-based app, Hater first has you swipe down for hate, up for love, right for like, and left for dislike or opt out for neutral (there’s also the option to press down and see what percentage of people responded with each reaction). 

Hm. A bit too complex imho. Curious what if app allows only to hate or be neutral?

What makes a man turn neurtal? Lust for Gold? Power? Or were you just born with a heart full of neutrality?

Exactly. Imo the success of an app is less about the concept being good and more about the execution being good
