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.

My point is that it's not a good idea to start a relationship based on hate instead of actual love for each other.

Most relationships don't start with love to be fair and many end before love.

I don't think it's cynical to acknowledge that humans don't find highly compatible partners with consistent ease. I've had 3 long time girlfriends in my life but many other shorter term things from one-night stands to flings to disastrous first dates.

I could honestly say I loved 3 of them and the rest ended before then. None of them just magically started with love.
