Hater is a dating app where people are matched based on a shared common interest: hate.

In order to match with someone on the app, people look at thousands of topics and choose the things they hate. Turns out, research shows people who hate the same things normally create a strong bond.

And lucky us, Hater used the data from hundreds of thousands of users in the US and extracted the most-hated topic from every state to make a hate-filled map.

Bravo

Some of the results are ironic — like in Arizona, where they hate sand. Lol.

D.C. hates the idea that everyone has a soulmate, which is kind of sad, funny, and relatable all at once.

Some are a bit more ridiculous, like North Carolina, where the most-hated topic is DUI checkpoints.

Other are super random, like Pennsylvanians, who apparently hate people who use money clips.

NBC

And North Dakota, where they hate tapas.

Mississippi is NOT into anal sex.

CORRECTION
