I love the internet and large groups of unknown lesbians give me anxiety-driven bitch face, so dating via the App store sounds like a fabulous idea to me. Online dating is nothing new, and while some straight people might hesitate to post their personals on the internet for fear of stigma, almost every lesbian I know has at some point gone online to find lurve or at least sex.
It just makes sense; gay-dar has limitations, lesbian nights can feel far and feel between, and meeting a girl organically can feel impossible as a gay woman.
Gay, lesbian, bisexual and trans-gendered teens are just as at risk for abuse in their relationships as anyone else.
Abusive relationships have good times and bad times.
Here are some safety tips that may be helpful, but each situation is unique. Please call a domestic violence hotline or the National Teen Abuse Helpline 866-331-9474/866-331-8453 TTY, to develop a personalized safety plan based on the details of the abuse, and all the aspects of your life.

If you seek a CPO, you have a right to ask for what they call an "ex-parte" hearing.
This allows you to ask for a Protection Order so that when your abuser is served with papers, he/she can also be served with an order to stay away from you until your court hearing.
You can also call the Helpline for more information about dating violence or other resources for teens.

A majority of teens with dating experience (76%, or 26% of all teens) say they have only dated people they met via in-person methods. One-in-five (20%) of all teens have used their social networks to find new partners by following or friending someone because a friend suggested they might want to date them.
