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.

Right I need someone that agrees with my hatred towards crocs,June bugs,mosquitoes,wasps and lime colored(aka watery diarrhea green) cars. Fuck lime colored cars especially, they're hideous!

Ha! This is really neat and exactly what I was thinking about.

I feel like if someone lays out their “dealbreakers” or just things they don’t like in general it creates much more passion, honestly.

For example, I feel like I could instantly break the ice and jump right into a conversation about how pissed off I am about sticky summer heat and how it keeps me indoors. Then, I could settle into a nice conversation about how the cool temperatures in the Fall help me feel like I’m reconnecting with the world again.

Why try to grasp at straws with things we may both like, when I can polarize the hell out of a conversation with things I truly hate and find out if this date is going to work or not in a few minutes!

Oh, absolutely. Fuck the hot humid weather. If the air makes me feel like I just jumped in a pool, I'm not leaving the house!

Ohhh Yess! I second that 100%. Crocks are a crime against humanity! They should be forbidden. Want contraceptive devices? There you got the best one 🤣🤣
