De Beste Datingsites

Hannah Brown can’t seem to catch a break on her search for love.
The 25-year-old, whose stint as ABC’s “Bachelorette” in 2019 ended in heartbreak, is still single and looking to mingle. But despite her celeb status, Brown says she’s had to wait like everybody else to get onto Raya, one of the most popular dating apps for A-listers.
“You guys, I don’t know if you know this, but I was the ‘Bachelorette’ and I can’t get on Raya,” Brown said on her Instagram story Sunday with her friend, pastor Elyse Murphy. “I’ve been on the waiting list for months now.”
For stars looking to find love online, many turn to Raya, an exclusive, membership-based dating app that celebrities, athletes and online influencers have flocked to for its privacy (taking screenshots of its famous users can get you in trouble).
Those interested in joining the app must submit an application that includes their occupation and Instagram handle.
Though Brown, who has 2.6 million Instagram followers and won “Dancing with the Stars” in November, still hasn’t gotten off the wait list, Murphy had no problems getting on the app and even offered Brown her account.
“I’m done,” Brown continued. “Christian Mingle, here I come.”

Brown then joked she “might not be allowed” on the religious dating site. On her controversial season of “The Bachelorette,” she revealed she had sex with then-contestant (now-“Bachelor”) Peter Weber four times in a windmill.
“If not, they don’t know the gospel,” Murphy assured her.
“That’s right,” Brown replied. “Jesus still loves me.”
In a statement to USA TODAY Tuesday provided by spokesperson Sophie Watson, Christian Mingle said the company would “love to have Hannah on our app!”
“Christian Mingle has reached out to Hannah and offered her a complimentary premium membership,” the statement continued, before quoting the company’s brand manager: “We don’t do waiting lists – we are accepting of all singles on Christian Mingle. Anyone with faith for Jesus in their heart is welcome here.”
