The idea of men making fake profiles to browse a lesbian site might sound spurious but Exton has been surprised at the rate and extent to which this happens. “Daily, we have about five guys registering for an invite and it’s unsubstantiated but the emails have a guy’s name on them. We’ve seen fake Facebook accounts set up to try and get invites. You’ll see they set up an account yesterday, have no friends but they like Dattch and something like ‘Lesbian and bi girlies of London’. It’s amazing. The fact that people will go to that extent to try and check out gay women or convert them or meet up with them.”
She’s surprised? That’s pretty funny.
Although men who have reached a certain level of maturity probably wouldn’t bother, as they are aware of what most real lesbians look like, I can imagine teenage boys being extremely curious about lesbian dating apps. I’m afraid it’s a problem without a good solution, as many of these boys are one step ahead of online filters and security measures.
Frankly, I think it’s hilarious. Imagine the reaction of some hopeful lesbian when she finds out the hot, bi-curious young woman she’s been chatting up is some 15-year-old kid using his sister’s Facebook profile.
