Drew’s Lex advertisement
Dani’s Lex advertising
Shelli’s Lex advertisement


Drew:

Possibly we have to start by saying whether these adverts had been the first Lex advertisements or if perhaps we have now utilized
Lex
before.


Shelli:

It wasn’t my basic Lex advertising. We made one when it ended up being
initially over on Instagram
as
Personals
. We frankly forget the way I found it but In my opinion someone may have sent a write-up my method regarding it and that I was actually hella curious. I sort of really skip the initial structure additionally the days whenever it had been over on Instagram — i am aware the need for the divorce as well as it to carry their dykey own in the App shop — nevertheless form of end up on Instagram anyhow.

What about y’all? First time scuba diving into the Lexicon or been indeed there, completed that?


Drew:

This actually was my basic Lex advertisement! We observed Personals because my ex really was engrossed. We talked alot regarding what the advertisements is whenever we had been internet dating, but we were monogamous therefore it had been all speculative. From the seldom watching ads that I enjoyed and once I performed I would click on the handle and never end up being keen on anyone. Then when we split up producing an ad wasn’t high on my personal matchmaking app to do list. When Lex was made i did not join it.

I joked that I found myself too superficial for Lex, but i truly don’t think it is low in order to get plenty of vibes and fuel from an individual’s picture! Anyway, four weeks ago I became banned from Tinder and tweeted regarding it and Jen Richards told me to join Lex and she met the woman fiancée on Lex so who had been I to disagree?


Dani Janae:

This is maybe not my personal first Lex advertisement. I actually accomplished lots of. I happened to be really involved with it when it very first turned into anything on Instagram and appreciated the attention and supporters i might get because of this, but I seldom came across any person I was interested in dating simply because they had been often too much away.

I obtained on Lex pretty soon after the software founded because I appreciated the idea of a text-based program and being wooed by a person’s wit over their unique face. I have gone on several Lex dates that usually finished in shared rejections/silence after thus I haven’t satisfied my partner yet but I’m nonetheless upbeat.


Drew:

Ok last one i will describe back in Personals times i did so find people who seemed cool nevertheless they had been all far. I didn’t understand but that slipping for folks various other states and nations is clearly a significant part of queer relationship. lol


Shelli:

Drew, I concur — Really don’t find it shallow attain vibes from somebody’s photograph. The need to end up being actually interested in some body does not mean that you are a horrible individual. Back when Lex was Personals on IG, I at first just check the advertisements and did not have any purpose on contacting any person as I was actually new of a breakup, however when we posted one and got responses I instantly decided to go to their pages to see if the appeal was there.


Drew:

Appropriate! But listed here is the fact. I am a writer very really when I started composing this advertising I Happened To Be like oh I Really Like to be able to present myself personally in this way…


Shelli:

Dani I know that you are looking for a Taurus wife, i could promise you your amusing, hot, Taurean queen is just an ad or two out.


Dani Janae:

Oh yeah i usually check IG to see if anyone is actually hot or perhaps not. Many thanks for your assistance Shelli!


Shelli:

That is where I became going to opt for it.


Drew:

Soooooo people you should not include their unique instagram manages though!


Dani Janae:

A lot of!


Drew:

I merely in the morning maybe not browsing message or reply to some one if I don’t know whatever they look like. Who may have time for this! Their unique advertisement will have to wind up as then degree remarkable.


Shelli:

In my opinion most of us had the exact same reaction to that — no IG handle, no feedback. And that I do not think it had been simply for explanations of actual destination at the very least it was not for me.


Drew:

No you can discover such about individuals by how they provide themself on line!


Shelli:

You will find exactly the same worry I have on another dating app — a lot of cis guys will discover an effective way to sneak into my personal lesbian inbox. On Lex although it’s easier for these to hide.


Drew:

Ah which is a beneficial point. I’m therefore trusting I gotn’t even considered catfishing. I found myself similar to oh Now I need a vibe. But that’s truly true!


Dani Janae:

Oooo we never ever looked at that!


Drew:

I believe if someone else messaged myself and their message was good I might respond without an insta, but their information will have to be really good. It will take fuel for that first relationship app convo. Easily do not know if the destination will there be why would We waste either of our own time?


Shelli:

While I had been generating my advertisement it was not always to attract dates but, as Dani said early in the day, it is wonderful to have some interest. Thus I don’t truly worry about configurations whenever it found age or place but I did need to see if people could follow directions. The application getting therefore text dependent you’ll believe they might manage to but just 3 associated with the reactions i acquired did what I told them to and provided me with a compliment or told me about skincare.


Drew:

Seriously folks !


Shelli:

I desired to speak about the feel that y’all had gotten from software.

Lex is supposed becoming an application that will be generally guided towards lesbians. When it was at first launched, many of us, such as me, had been thrilled given that it felt like we were ultimately acquiring an app that will allow us to travel, flirt and, frankly, fuck. Gay males have so many of those apps (Grindr, Scruff, an such like) however they aren’t actually readily available for you. We believed that initial wave of hookup exhilaration but as time passed and I also would inspect Lex in some places — it moved from men and women publishing about wanting to get fucked for your week-end their particular roomie had been off to searching for someone to keep arms with for 7 hours straight — and this was at a pre-COVID globe.

Once I got back about this time in regards to our review, it method of believed the same. I know we live in a time where we can’t end up being real nonetheless it felt like the app had been packed with sweetness rather than adequate sex — performed yall have the same vibe?

My final idea on it though – I am not sure if an application performed appear in which it might tell me if a dyke was 0.08 miles from me personally I would personally use it. Generally for protection reasons and stressing that cis males would get on and attempt to do me damage for some reason. Ugh, it banging sucks getting that concern.


Drew:

Okay and so I like while I’m incorrect and that I have to point out that I happened to be wrong about Lex. Because we sort of like it?? I think We underestimated after much time on Tinder exactly how fantastic it can feel is on an app that really feels like ours. I do not differ along with your evaluation. I’d say most of the ads are either like “hold my personal hand carefully” or “put your own fist inside me personally and call me daddy” and sometimes i am like both things seem cool but may we like get a bit more about you?? Very almost talking I guess You will findn’t encountered the greatest chance but I’m simply therefore charmed by entire thing!

Two out of the three men and women I talked to are individuals we previously understood

in neighborhood

and it was sort of great to “run into all of them” specifically during the pandemic anytime that cannot happen or else.

I’ll state… I kind of intend there clearly was a limitation of one advertisement per individual each month versus SIX. Often the feed becomes blocked with one lonely queer-looking for a few cuddles uploading again and again.


Dani Janae:

Shelli, personally i think that 100per cent. Initial several months of Lex had been frantic and aroused and I also loved it plenty. Regardless if i did not complement with any individual I loved the energy. Now it’s individuals writing about longing and fear and seeking for roommates? The shift has been thus disheartening.

Brand new lesbian label would be that we’re all cottagecore softies that just want to snuggle but I’m a whore who wants to spit in another person’s mouth and that I know’s hard in a COVID world but it’s perhaps not impossible.


Drew:

Possibly LA is most effective?? it has been a real mix in my situation. Or even I just have no idea how good it actually was with its beginning.

I actually do have various ummmmmm records that mainly end up in like application knowledge stuff. If only you could mute a profile. Like ok I checked this person’s insta and I also’m perhaps not into them MUTE never ever see them again on Lex. And I wish there was clearly an effective way to keep an eye on where you’re from inside the scroll? I suppose should you decide could mark an ad as seen then it disappears out of your timeline that could help.


Dani Janae:

Being able to mute might be lovely, particularly for people who post plenty of adverts that I really don’t buzz with


Shelli:

Drew, WOW. Yes, Yes, Certainly to muting a profile. When I was actually scrolling, you happen to be right — I would see 5 various ads from same account requesting alike types of hugs in almost any verbiage.

Everything I performed love ended up being the convenience of flagging or stating a profile, that we sadly had to carry out several times.


Drew:

I also believe the texting function as a whole isn’t great. I’m like fairly rapidly i wish to end up like ok either this really is a no or why don’t we go this to texting or insta. I wish also you could have a setting the place you cannot see advertisements from those who you shouldn’t add their insta! Like i believe there are these quite simple tweaks that would drastically raise the time we expend on Lex. I’d even develop my options beyond Los Angeles to see queers all-over like in Personals times if the app ended up being a lot more easy to use and that I could slim exactly who i am watching more.


Dani Janae:

Would agree with that time about a setting to perhaps not see profiles without insta connected. I believe like Lex is going with this minimalist arranged nonetheless it could benefit from having a lot more settings.


Shelli:

I believe the application is wanting to slim inside entire ambiance of back in the day where you are able to lay on your chair and circle the people you wish to answer while having the morning coffee, in performing can rendering it minimal they left behind certain features you must pay attention to to create a great matchmaking software knowledge.


Drew:

Certainly, completely. The thing is we have more options today even though the throwback top quality is a useful one in a number of techniques i believe there might be a middle soil that takes some beneficial attributes off their programs.


Shelli:

I’ll just go right ahead and say it — If only they’d return back to placing the adverts on Instagram.


Drew:

If only they would pick like many ads per day to share on Insta no less than. haha


Shelli:

Can we chat about the POC representation on application?


Dani Janae:

Easily’m perhaps not mistaken I remember there is a moment in time where personals requested you to put if perhaps you were white or otherwise not in your profile. It was after they experienced trouble for insufficient POC representation and a Personals for QPOCs was made different through the original management. The online dating software crowd generally seems to lean really white inside my location and Lex is not any different


Shelli:

I’m in Chicago and my responses had been additionally primarily from low POC folks. It wasn’t shocking however it was actually unsatisfactory. In addition goes back never to willing to see individuals who don’t possess an instagram within their profile — or who do but happen to be private as well as have Louis Belcher set as his or her profile image.

Can’t you merely subscribe using and IG?


Drew:

I don’t know if you want an insta to sign up? But i actually do believe considering Personals started with requiring an insta taking that straight back is style of nice !


Shelli:

Very last thing to chat about — performed anybody have contacts?


Drew:

Well, okay, thus one of many folks I talked with did not have an insta attached. Hahaha. But we already understood her!

I spoke to 3 folks and ignored a whole lot of other individuals. I do believe some of which i am merely in a pickier than my personal usual picky place online dating app wise today.

There was clearly singular complete stranger we talked to, we attained out predicated on the woman offer, and we also had a nice talk, but then it fizzled since it typically really does especially in a pandemic. With Covid instances rising it feels actually less likely to want to really meet up with some one now and this make matchmaking generally believe type of hopeless.

Therefore it is odd because i’m pro-Lex after this research nevertheless did not really work into the the majority of standard good sense. I will ensure that it stays on my phone however and continue to examine it several occasions weekly.


Dani Janae:

I did not have any chance with Lex this game. I’m blaming the pandemic. Oh used to do complement with someone my good friend connected with therefore chose it absolutely was within best interest to not ever go after each other. lol

In my opinion I just received extremely particular and that I know what I want. And so I do not waste time entertaining could-be’s. Lex had countless could-be’s but was actually primarily flat-out “no’s.”


Shelli:

I ignored some adverts too, primarily because like I mentioned, men and women cannot follow simple instructions of giving me personally an accompany and advising me about flowers. Exactly what performed occur though ended up being some of the black folks I chatted with I made the decision to receive into the care kit giveaway that I’d and some of them arrived! It absolutely was actually dope to show that knowledge into one where we could connect on a different types of amount and that it occurred because we came across on Lex.


Drew:

Yes! I think given that it feels like a queer room I feel very fluid re: end result with folks. I guess personally i think that on all programs, nevertheless seems inclined I would make a buddy on Lex than Tinder.


Shelli:

I agree, its more of a friendship dependent app a lot more than any such thing and though Im grateful to own associations that i did so create that is not exactly what a matchmaking software should always be known for.


Drew:

I am additionally definitely uploading my personal ad on my insta once this review is released because though Lex has stopped being on Insta I sure am and my personal hot mutuals needs to be reminded that i will be single.


Dani Janae:

Co-signing that


Shelli:

If You’re Searching for a pal vs. a fuck (virtual or non) then possibly it is the spot for you but damn, initial we shed lesbian bars and then online dating software too… WHENEVER IS IT GOING TO END.


Drew:

I’ll be interested to see just what Lex seems like post-pandemic. I do believe perhaps the many vanilla cottagecore of one’s society can be experiencing wild in 2022.


Shelli:

Or perhaps it is going to become some kind of marketplace in which individuals are bartering for couches and vaccines.


Dani Janae:

I am in addition curious. Ideally everybody will you need to be overcome with crave and would like to bang once more.


Drew:

We can dream!
