High There lets you see the profiles of users who share at least one of your primary levels of compatibility: preferred method of getting high, energy level once you're stoned (low, medium, or high), and whether you're interesting in chatting, going out, or staying in.
Unlike Tinder, High There doesn't lean on the probability that two like-minded souls will eventually find each other.
As marijuana laws change and recreational use becomes more socially acceptable, matchmakers are having more open conversations with clients about the drug. However, 38 percent of men and 24 percent of women said they're open to dating someone who regularly lights up.
According to Match.com's Singles in America survey, which surveyed more than 5,500 U. singles in 2015, 70 percent of all singles said it's a turnoff if a potential romantic partner regularly smokes marijuana.
After setting up an account I begin non-discriminately swiping right—which, as with Tinder, means you want to chat.
Instead, I suggest we get a drink the following night. "I'm more of a smoker than a drinker," he writes, "and I'm getting the impression that you don't smoke? I have a fancy vape because I got it for free, and an eighth will easily last me more than a month.
Most often I smoke in bed, right before I go to sleep.
"I was trying to find chicks on it," he says, "but there's just a lot of dudes who want to smoke blunts and play Mario Kart." When I ask Nikhil if he'll delete High There, he shrugs: "I have enough room on my phone." A few days later he hits me up on gchat; he's going on a High There date but he'll only tell me about it anonymously.
I check in a week later and ask if he ended up going.
