Queer Female Online Dating With HER App Founder Robyn Exton
Everything you ever wanted to know about HER App…
If you’re a queer female who’s ever done any online dating in the past 5 years, you have undoubtedly heard of HER App.
Using dating apps is the easiest way to meet other queer women in any geographic location.
Before apps like HER App were released, it used to so much harder to meet other queer women. We would have to go to gay bars or gay events or be deeply networked into the queer community (or otherwise just get extremely lucky) in order to meet and connect with other queer women.
Now, because of dating apps we can go to any city and immediately start connecting with the queer women who live there. Plus, apps like HER App allow us to sort for who we’re attracted to and who we share our interests with.
(As opposed to just showing up at a bar or an event, where we are limited to connecting with only the people who happen to physically be there at the same time.)
Hot lesbians ARE everywhere.
Did you know that more than 4,000 new women sign up for HER App every single day?
What’s fascinating about the companies who run dating apps is the extraordinary amount of data on queer dating behavior that they have access to.
Apps like HER App have an incredible window into how queer women connect and relate and engage with each other, when they meet online.
And in this episode of Women Wanting Women I interview Robyn Exton, founder of HER App, to teach us all about it.
Don’t miss the episode.
During the interview Robyn shares:
* The difference between how gay men and queer women interact on dating apps…
* Data about how women use HER to connect with women they’re attracted to…
* Tips for how women can start using HER to find new friends and new romance from anywhere in the world…

It is the largest social app for LGBTQ+ womxn and queer people to meet.

Power (And How To Use It) With Jennifer Russell
Meet Jennifer Russell: A sorceress of feeling confident, connected, beautiful and good enough…
For years Jennifer Russell’s work has been about showing women how to source their power and how to be more powerful in more ways.
As lesbians it’s important for us to learn this.
Because women are attracted to power.
There’s nothing hotter than a powerful woman.
We want to have power and be empowered, but our culture tends to have a “conflicted” relationship with the word power (and with the idea of power).
Power scares people.
And yet, we can’t be powerful in our lives if we are threatened by the idea of power.
“If we have a conflicted relationship with the idea of power, we get cut off from our personal power” Jennifer Russell…
Jennifer Russell teaches that the first step in accessing our power is to make sure we intend to use it in service of something transcendent, for the good of all.
There is no reason to feel “conflicted” about being powerful if we know in our heart that we are using power as a source of good.
But how do we know what our power is and how to use it?
There are many ways of being powerful.
There are different types of power we can tap into.
And Jennifer Russell has created one of my favorite frameworks for understanding this topic.
Jennifer Russell’s “Four Faces of incorruptible Power”…
In this episode of Women Wanting Women I talk with Jennifer Russel about what she calls “The Four Faces of Incorruptible Power.”
During the interview she breaks down what the four different faces are, how we can express them, and what the “shadow side” of that power is (so we can avoid “over-using” the power in ways that cause harm.)
This is definitely not an episode you want to miss.

Meet Dr. Pamela…
Dr. Pamela’s company helps teenagers plan for higher education.
Being a teenager is hard enough… but applying to college is a massively overwhelming and confusing process, forced on people during an already difficult time.

And in addition to helping young people find the resources and direction they need to succeed scholastically, she also mentors women business owners to achieve the kind of spiritually aligned success she has achieved herself.
The kind of person I love talking to!
More than once, when I was searching for great guests for the podcast, I turned to my friend Chelsea O’Brien (who is a digital strategist for business leaders across the world), and I asked her if she has any clients and colleagues that more people in the world would benefit from learning from. The last time I called Chelsea to ask this question, she blurted out “Dr. Pamela!!” without any hesitation.
Dr. Pamela is passionate about supporting people so they can do work they love, aligned with who they are.
And on this episode of Women Wanting Women, she joins us to share her calm, wise, goodhearted, optimistic spirit with us.
During the episode Dr. Pamela shares:
* Tips for building a life based on authenticity and passion…
* Starting a successful new career, even later in life… and
* Self-care strategies for staying grounded and avoiding overwhelm…
In a world full of madness and stress and negativity, it’s such a gift and a breath of fresh air to find wise, grounded humans like Dr. Pamela.
Dr. Pamela serves as a role model and a reminder that we don’t have to be aggressive and on-edge to be successful and self-made.
