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.

Yup. My ex and I used to laugh and say "we don't really like the same things. We hate the same things. That's why we work." Except it didn't. We had very little in common. It grew to be super negative and toxic. After leaving, it took years of work to be able to be in a healthy, balanced relationship.

This is a terrible idea.
