Love always gets the credit for bringing couples together.
And most most couples would surely agree with that.
But thanks to a new dating app just released at the beginning of February, hate will also help start new romances.
Generally, dating apps match up users by mutual likes and preferences.
But this new app takes a totally different approach.
It brings people together based on their mutual dislikes.
The app is called Hater
and was the brainchild of Brendan Alper,
a former employee of Goldman Sachs.
According to Alper, the idea for the app began as a joke.
But soon he started thinking the concept could actually work.
Taking the idea more seriously,
he looked around to see if there was any research to support his concept. Eventually, he found some studies to backup his intuition.
The app is pretty simple to use.
You are given a series of topics
ranging from Donald Trump to airplane seats.
You swipe up to love and down to hate.
With this information
Hater will look for potential matches in your area
based on what you hate.
And with a little luck,
maybe you can find that special someone
to spend a life griping about things with.
