Citing discrimination on dating sites such as Tinder and Bumble, Christy Lawton decided to start her own dating app platform. Launched in late 2018, the app is slightly different than others in that women must initiate the conversation and men are not only expected to pay for the first date, but women are encouraged to report them on the app if they don’t.
Like most dating apps, a swipe left means you are not interested in a persons profile and a swipe right means that you are. Many profiles on Righter include the person’s personal and political views, as well as their pertinent information.
The app is very new, but some people have talked about how few people appear to be using the site. Founder and CEO Christy Lawton stated that there are thousands of users and she expected the selection of profiles to grow tremendously by the end of 2019.
Company headquarters are located in Jackson, Wyoming.
