Republicans are having a tough time meeting people over popular apps like Tinder, Bumble and OkCupid. So in larger numbers, they are turning to specialty right-wing dating apps to find like-minded matches.

A recent report from Vox examined this trend, noting that a growing number of profiles include the phrase “Trump supporters swipe left” – so that conservatives don’t even get a chance to strike up a conversation. OkCupid and Bumble have allowed members to state up front if they won’t date someone who doesn’t agree with their politics, making it harder for people on opposite sides of the aisle to connect romantically.

Because of the brewing frustration among conservative daters, some new dating apps catering to the excluded crowd have grown in recent months. Righter, Conservatives Only, Trump Singles, Patrio, and Donald Daters all offer a politically-friendly alternative to daters who are feeling discouraged with their current options – including Trump staffers who, according to an article in the Washingtonian, said they were having trouble getting dates in D.C.

No picture. No age. No name. No signup. A new dating app is taking anonymity to the extreme, but only for women.

Pickable bills itself as the first and only dating platform to completely remove women’s exposure in the online dating world. Female users of the recently-launched app are not required to upload a photo, write a description, or include their name and age in their profiles. In fact, they don’t have to sign up at all. Women can download Pickable and immediately start browsing with full anonymity, free from any fear that friends, family members, or colleagues might stumble across their profile.

Tamara Goldstein, the founder and CEO of Pickable, told Yahoo Finance that she was inspired to create the app after worrying that her own dating profile would be exposed to her professional network. She wanted her account to be visible only to relevant and appropriate men, while remaining hidden from any personal connections. When she couldn’t find an app that met her needs, she created her own.

“Get swept away. Not swiped away.”

That is the promise of Cove, a new members-only dating app that aims to provide a more engaged experience for singles who are tired of wasting their time with idle conversations and hookup culture. The app offers users three opportunities to establish chemistry through an innovative level system that must be completed within 10 days.

"Random hookups can threaten one's physical and psychological health. While other dating apps may foster this sort of behavior, we believe that there is a large segment of the population hungry for something more meaningful in the online dating experience," says Cove founder Charles Messow. "We created Cove to guide matches through more meaningful conversation within 10 days while respecting the premium of everyone's time and attention."

The dating industry has been remarkably restrained in its responses to Facebook’s upcoming dating service.

A spokesperson from Bumble described the company as “thrilled” to welcome its new competitor, and suggested that perhaps “Bumble and Facebook can join forces to make the connecting space even more safe and empowering.”

Joey Levin, chief executive at IAC, assured shareholders that “on the long list of things we worry about in our dating business, [Facebook] doesn't top the list."

Match Group CEO Mandy Ginsberg released a statement announcing that “Facebook’s entry will only be invigorating to all of us."

Tinder CEO Elie Seidman simply said he is “convinced” Tinder can “rise to the occasion.”

When it comes to dating apps, Andrey Andreev is no neophyte. The Russian entrepreneur is the founder of Badoo, an investor and advisor for Bumble, and a key player in the growth of Blendr, Huggle, and Chappy. He may be the industry’s most prolific matchmaker, and he’s making headlines again with new venture for senior singles.

Andreev and co-founders Antoine Argouges and Charly Lester have announced the launch of Lumen, a dating app specifically designed for singles over 50. Though it’s not the first dating service to target the underserved mature market, it hopes to best competitors by providing a modern and fun experience that knows what the niche is missing.

“Do a search of the phrase ‘over 50s dating’. The results that come up are embarrassing for the industry,” Andreev commented. “The over-50s have been mistreated by the dating sites for years. I’m excited to see the Lumen team launching an app which finally listens to this audience and specifically targets their issues and needs.”
