Meet Heather. She’s a lesbian and an adventurer, and she is looking for love.
Heather decided that she was tired of OKCupid and Tinder. She took matters into her own hands and made her own website. Would you like to date a lesbian adventurer? Well friend, have I got good news for you: head on over to datealesbianadventurer.com and see what she’s all about.
I am a good communicator, I have a lot to offer a potential partner/wife and I would love to share my amazing life with someone equally amazing, kind and compassionate.
I was introduced to Heather’s website by a mutual friend and was honestly, truly, and earnestly blown away. It’s one of the most honest, vulnerable, and sweet things I’ve seen on the internet in a long time and it made me wonder: is love a lie?
Heather came up with the idea after seeing a travel blogger she follows make a similar website. She registered the domain over a year ago, but it wasn’t until this Sunday that she launched.
“I have tried a few dating apps and have made some great friends from HER and OKCupid. I tried Tinder too, and didn’t have the best experience. I kind of got tired of the whole idea of online dating. Over the past few years, I have really been focusing on me and what I want out of life,” she wrote to me.
The website is simple, but gives you everything you’d need to know about a person before dating them. She’s got her height, her gender presentation, what she drinks (whiskey and cider, duh), and her sign (Pisces), amongst other things. She talks about what she’s doing in her life, and what kind of woman she hopes to find.
But the best part are the testimonials. Her friends, who she describes as “kind, compassionate, and making a difference,” all wrote the sweetest things ever about her!
Like this one, from Janet.
She has good taste in music.
Or this one from Brooke!
Loyal and loves dogs!
Sarah, coming in with the important facts:
Heather once had a good time in Texas.
Don’t we all know a Nancy?
Heather is the kind of woman who makes me wish I were a lesbian.
My absolute favorite one, though, is from Hannah.
Heather takes care of you and makes sure you’re ok even though you just met.
Be right back, I gotta go cry. If her testimonials say anything about her, Heather is a class act. I hope my friends think of me even half as fondly as Heather’s friends think of her. Anyone would be lucky to be her girlfriend! And just maybe that person is you!!
According to Heather, “So far I have had a few submissions via my contact form. Some of them have been men complimenting me on being such a badass. Some of them have been from women asking “where were you when I was single?” A few have been of actual interest. I am doing my best to get back to everyone within 24-48 hours and trying to set up a time to chat.”
Maybe you want to get to know Heather? Well, besides living in Portland, you can catch her at the Lesbians Who Tech Summit in New York later this year or (tentatively) at the Reformation Project Conference.
If you’ve been looking for a lesbian adventurer, might I suggest looking no further than Heather. Her website says it all, literally. What more could you want?
