At a round-table discussion about women and online privacy in September at the Project Room on Seattle's Capitol Hill, Lee said: "In 2014, it's very hard for a woman to be both professional and sexual." Teachers, politicians and women in power are particularly sensitive to revealing, personal details being made public.For instance, OKCupid's questionnaire posits, "Once you're intimate, how often would you and your significant other have sex?(Ken Lambert/Seattle Times/MCT) ** OUTS - ELSENT, FPG, TCN - OUTS **Susie Lee, right, with the help of Katrina Hess, has developed a new online dating app called Siren.(Ken Lambert/Seattle Times/MCT) ** OUTS - ELSENT, FPG, TCN - OUTS ** (Ken Lambert / MCT) "I didn't feel safe on these sites.Sitting at Ada's Technical Books and Cafe in Seattle, Lee sports a chin-length bob and angular, arty glasses; Hess has a bubbly, impish personality and an affinity for knock-knock jokes.Lee and Hess (and by extension, Siren, which has another woman on the team of five) are an anomaly in the dating-app universe.Lee, who'd never signed up for a dating site until she began researching the competition for Siren, was unnerved after receiving messages fetishizing her Asian ancestry.She partnered with Katrina Hess, a designer she had met on another project.
Even high-profile actresses such as Jennifer Lawrence who often pose provocatively on the covers of magazines are subject to public shaming when their private, nude photos are hacked and posted on the Internet.A visual artist who works with sculpture, digital technology and video, with a master of fine arts degree and a background in science (she has a bachelor of science degree in molecular biophysics and biochemistry from Yale), she'd only just gotten her first i Phone in summer 2013 and had an "aha" moment after playing with Scruff, a gay male dating app on a friend's phone. She wanted to make something that wasn't an eyesore or laborious to join.Curious, she signed up for dating sites like Plenty of Fish, OKCupid and Match, and was appalled by their tacky designs: "If you have any taste at all, how can you be on this thing? Indeed, Siren's slick opening screen is a sensual drop of dark ink floating in water; the profile creation is short and sweet.According to "Dataclysm," the new book by OKCupid's co-founder, Christian Rudder, more than 55 million have registered for a dating site in the last three years.Of course that means more and more creeps are online, too.
And the implicit notion that it's a "hookup" app can be uncomfortable for some women.
