That's the premise of, a dating app that matches you with other users based on things you both hate. The app is only about a month old, but it's amassed about 755,555 users in the US and abroad — it's the No. 6 lifestyle app in Germany right now, the company says — with plans to take on Tinder.

Tapping on a topic will also allow you to add it to your list of the top five worst things, which are the things you hate above all else. Since Hater is constantly adding new topics, you can constantly update your profile with likes and dislikes.

— as well as the person's age, how far away they are from you, and whatever photos they have up. Tapping the bottom of the screen lets you see which topics you have in common.
