While positivity is an important thing to have, especially when you start dating, this new app makes use of your strong ~*feelings*~ against something to help you find your match! Hater, a new dating app set for launch on February 8, matches people based on the things they dislike. All together now: WHAAAT??? (via NYMag.com)

According to CEO Brendan Alper, "The more I thought about it, the more I thought 'Hey even though this was a funny idea, it actually makes a lot of sense.'" Which is actually true and even science proves that, too! In 2006, Jennifer Bosson, a social psychologist from the University of South Florida, had a series of studies of how people got together because of shared negative attitude towards something. 

So how does Hater work? It will make you swipe through a series of photos first (Donald Trump, camping, slow walkers, etc.) and will eventually add user-generated topics. But to be clear, Alper emphasized that there will be no tolerance for hate speech. "We have zero tolerance for any sort of bigotry or hate speech or discrimination," he said.
