The United States of Hate: What Grinds Arkansas’ 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 mile, 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’s seem 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 united 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.

Arkansas hates “cleaning.”

Thank you Arkansas for being normal. We have a dislike for a completely understandable, mundane task. Nothing like hating bloggers or “biting string cheese.” Texas is kind of weird with their dislike of “sleeping with the window open”, but that’s probably because it’s so humid that no one wants to do that in the fist place
