You know how conventional dating apps match singles based on mutual likes and the subsequent compatibility? Well, that’s cool and all, but you know what’s even better than liking the same things? Hating the same things.
That's exactly the mentality behind the new dating app Hater, which matches you with potential lovers based on things you both hate. Aww, so romantic.
You might be thinking that a relationship based on mutual hate can’t be too healthy, let me put your worries to rest. Studies show that people who hate the same things actually have stellar chemistry, which is quite nice.
Anyway, Hater recently analyzed data from its users all across America to figure out what the most hated thing in each state is, and then put it all together to create a magnificent map of the United States of Hate.
See all of the hate below:
As you can see on the map, some states hate things that are pretty understandable. For instance, Oregon hates spin class. I totally understand why. Spin class is stupid.
Other states, however, hate some pretty ridiculous things, like Georgia does. Tuna salad? Really, Georgia?
Um, let me speak directly to the tuna-haters in Georgia for a minute: what did tuna salad ever do you??
