Up until recently, not many nations accepted that lesbians exist. The majority still believe that women seeking other women are only because of a bad experience with men.
The online dating world has also not been so kind to lesbian women. There also they cannot escape men and try to find a decent woman to date. Even though you set your preference and sexual orientations, the algorithm keeps suggesting to you men as potential matches.
Thankfully, there are a good number of lesbian dating sites and apps that cater specifically to lesbians and bisexual women. Many LGBTQ singles are turning to online dating now. A study conducted by Match.com found that 56% of queer singles dated someone they found on dating sites.
