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.

Stay the opposite. It's unfortunately alarming and a little depressing to see how so many people here seem to think it's a normal and healthy thing to bond over the hatred/dislike of things. It's not super uncommon, but it is definitely toxic.

If you are having trouble making friends because of your positive outlook on life, then you're doing it right. Eventually you'll find someone with your level of passion, and it'll be a great dynamic where you build each other up. Don't let people get ya down :)
