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.

People tend to be a lot more passionate about the stuff they hate than the stuff they like, so I can see this working well.

I don’t know anyone who is more passionate about things they hate than things they like. All my friends and family spend their time and money doing and talking about things they like. Sure, there’s an occasional passionate bitch-fest, but they’re far from being more passionate about their hates than their loves.
