Lex is almost an anti-dating dating app and that makes it stand out in this crowd. According to the folks at Lex, Lex is short for lexicon, which makes sense when you use the app because it's goal is text-first, selfies second. Lex is like an old school personal ad site, where users post short, text-based ads or stories. Targeted at the lesbian, queer, trans, non-binary, and gender nonconforming community, Lex isn't for everyone. For people in those groups looking for a pretty safe space to find friends, lovers, sex partners, or community, it's a nice place to go. Lex's biggest community rule is "No Creeps Allowed" and they put a real emphasis of their community guidelines. Users can link to their Instagram or keep things picture free if they chose. All in all, Lex is a different sort of dating app that feels less meat market and more meet who you want and go from there.
