There are a lot of free lesbian dating apps and sites out there, you’d be surprised. It can be hard to know which one is right for you or where to find them. But don’t stress hun, we’ve looked high and low so you don’t have to. Fine, fine, we might have been checking out all the babez along the way but bitches be bored at work okay?! Back to the point, during our “research” we discovered there are quite a few independently run lesbian dating apps and sites too that get some honouree mentions below.
Just a heads up. Some of the links and products featured in this article are sponsored or affiliate links. Which means we might be paid for featuring them. This is how we keep the magic alive baby, but we only work with great brands so sip your flat white and read on hunz.
Nowadays, queer women from the UK, and all over the world actually, use dating apps and sites to look for companionship, and perhaps even an occasional hookup (oi oi, no judgement here hun). Therefore, if you’re looking for free dating sites to use in the UK for queer women, you’re in the right place. That being said, everything comes down to a bit of research that will match your preferences. With that in mind, and before we give you the goods here are a few tips on how to find the best app or site for you.
Tips for finding the best free dating sites in the UK?
There are a few things to keep in mind when looking for the best free dating sites in the UK, especially ones that are queer friendly. First, it’s important to find a site that has a large pool of potential matches. This will give you the best chance of finding someone who is compatible with you. You could also check out the dating app reviews too before you sign up.
Furthermore, it’s important to find a site that has robust search filters. This will allow you to narrow down your options and find someone who meets your specific criteria. In addition, it’s important to read the reviews before signing up for any dating site. This will help you avoid any scams or fake profiles.
Important features of free dating sites in the UK?
There are a few things to consider when looking for the best features of free dating sites for queer women. Below are features we were sure to look out for in the apps and websites whilst searching through the hundreds of babes *cough* we mean, whilst conducting our “very” important research.
Hugely important, your data. The websites and apps you give your data to must abide by GDPR if you’re UK based and of course if you’re from other parts of the world this is covered by other similar regulations. It’s super important to know what you’re giving away or what cookies are tracking you etc, so be sure to read the fine print before signing up.
This is probably as important as data security (all the boring things but all very important). Being in the queer community, we’re sure we don’t need to tell you how important it is to be kept safe online. Not only from trolls or hate crime, but fake profiles too. When you’re looking for the right site or app for you be sure to consider this and always practice safe dating.
Amount of free features
Look, we’re not here to mess about lads, we want the freebies. Whilst checking out the below apps we were sure to see what features are included on the free tier. Because there is nothing worse than scrolling for ages, finding an absolute 10/10 and then not being able to use the messaging feature. Fumin!
Number of members
A site with a large number of members is more likely to have a variety of people to choose from, which means you’re more likely to find someone who is the right match for you. Besides, you’re also surely looking for someone who’s not a million miles away too.
Another thing to consider is the quality of the profiles. A site with good-quality profiles is more likely to attract people who are serious about finding a partner. Finally, consider the features that the site offers. Some sites offer more features than others, so it’s important to find one that offers what you’re looking for.
Finally, don’t be afraid to try out a few different sites before settling on one, our research on queer dating sites has made us realise there are so many with different features, but more importantly, different women. Everyone’s needs are different, so what works for one person might not work for another. The best way to find the right site or app for you is to experiment and see what feels best. Download them all baby, we won’t tell.
See our extensive list below.
Free Lesbian Dating Apps & Sites
HER is one of the big hitters when it comes to membership size. With a huge 10million and counting, HER claims to be the world’s most loved LGBTQIA2S+ dating & community app. And we can see why. As a company, they out a lot of work in to making sure the app is a safe place for all members of the queer community.
Passion Fruut is one of those golden independant apps that we all need to get behind. It’s unique speed dating feature is something to definitely check out. Read our interview with the Passion Fruut founders too to learn more about the brand and mission.
Find A Femme is a website only, and no app – but who doesn’t love a good netflix and dating website chill?
Founded by wife and wife Whitney & Megan Bacon-Evans (known as Wegan), Find Femmes pretty much does what is says on the tin. It is a dating site aimed at feminine identified LGBTQ women, aka femmes.
Lex (short for lexicon) is a queer focused text based dating app. With their whole ethos revolving around the mantra “text first, selfies second”. Smart peeps hey?
This is your go to app if you absolutely hate judging books by covers, and love the art of a great conversation.
Lesly, the dating app for lesbians, bisexual and queer women, focused on providing a great community for single girls to meet and chat in their area or around the world. They brand themselves as the “Free Lesbian Dating Club for Lesbians & Bisexual Women”.
Zoe, another big contending in the lesbian dating app world. Zoe has over 3.9million worldwide users and they pride themselves on 4.5 star app review score.
Free features include swiping and chatting, plus verified profiles. Safety first peeps.
The app that allows you to meet eligible lesbians through videos. Fem, as an app, has a different approach – they love the video aspect, and have a simple approach of uploading your own video and make a match. However, don’t stress, if you’re not in to videos you can also upload photos too.
Okay so we’re moving away from apps with this one, and we’re back on the good old sites. Pink Cupid is a lesbian dating site that is trusted by over 1 million users. They do also have an app too.
On Pink Cupid you’re able to review your matches for free on Pink Cupid but they do also have a lot of paid for features too.
Qutie is not just for lesbians and queer women, but is a dating and social networking app for the entire LGBTQ+ community. This app is completely free to use, but you can also upgrade to their Rainbow membership for enhanced features. Not only can you meet new people but you can also create and attend events.
Hinge is not an app that’s souly for queer people, but it’s an app for all. However, we do really rate their options for LGBTQ+ people, so much so we wrote about why Hinge is the app for lesbians here.
Hinge has great options of being able to interact with peoples bio rather than their pictures, so it’s a lovely little ice breaker that’s not awks.
Again, another app that’s not dedicated to the LGBTQ+ community but does have great features for us, and the ability to add your preferences.
We love the idea of Bumble, but the selling point of Bumble is that women have to message first, so if you’re a queer woman wanting to meet other women than this feature is completely redundant. But, there are women looking for women on the app so ya never know hun.
Feeld is to spice this list up a little. Again, this one is not just for queer women, or just LGBTQ+ people even, it’s for everyone but the twist is that it’s a dating app for exploration, curiosity and pleasure.
You’re also able to join on your own, or with your partner.
We couldn’t not put old Tinds on the list. Double negative? We don’t care.
Tinder, although it’s a super hetero app, has a sh*t tonne of users, and you can specify your sexuality. So it is a great one to meet new women very quickly, if you’re still down with all the mind numbing swipe action.
Okay, okay, this is not technically a dating site or app at all. LOLs. But we had to include it in the list because let’s face it, TikTok is full of lesbians …and lesbian thirst traps.
All you really have to do is check out the #lesbiansoftiktok, or #wlw and you’re good to go.
The bottom line
To sum up, free lesbian dating apps and sites in the UK are definitely worth checking out if you’re looking for some sort of love (wehey). With so many options to choose from, it’s important to find one that suits your needs and that you feel comfortable with. Leave us a comment if we’ve missed on or you have feedback. We love to hear from readers.
Bisexual? Well, don’t forget to read our article on dating apps for bisexual women.
