The United States of Hate: What Grinds Louisiana’s Gears?
Thanks to a new dating app, Hater, the one thing you may look for in a significant other is a mutual hate for something.
If you’re into reality dating shows like I am (Million Dollar Matchmaker, FTW), you know that a common question that is asked is “What do you look for in a mate?” Many say things like good sense of humor, tall, great smile, eyes that make my heart melt… and so on and so forth. It’s unlikely to hear something like “Well they have to hate people who use ‘like’ too often” or “I’d prefer them to dislike cabbage.” It seems fickle and self-serving, and actually puts a negative spin on something that is supposed to be positive.
Of course, when you think of little nagging quirks that turn into reasons for divorce, maybe it’s not so weird.
A new dating app called Hater is out to unite couples based on the things they hate the most. Real Prince Charming riding a white stallion stuff over here. With this research, based off people completing their dating profiles, the app has found what people hate the most in each state.
And it’s fascinating.
Some hate basic things like going to the gym, asking for directions, or even Eli Manning. Others hate fidget spinners, sand, polo shirts and tuna salad. Really, nothing is off limits here, people.
Louisiana hates “being the designated driver.”
Of course we do! Blame it on Mardi Gras, the casinos or all of that heavy cajun food, but we love to have a good time. Anything that could hinder that is a major bummer and apparently, the object of out extreme dislike.
