Online dating as a lesbian, for the most part, still involves having to deal with straight people. The heteronormative weirdness got so alienating that lesbians began turning to TikTok as a means of meeting other single lesbians — turns out, it's a damn good matchmaker. But it's unrealistic to expect a social media app to work like a dating app for everyone. (It's hard for some of us to comprehend, but not everyone spends every free minute on TikTok.)
