Everyone has an opinion on the gay apps. I remember the first time I downloaded Grindr —shortly after it was released. Once The New York Times writers discovered it, the app world seemed to explode with location-based dating apps. And the gays were instrumental to that digital boom. Of course there are positives and negatives. AA lot has been said about how gayborhoods around the world have changes; the fact that gay bars and clubs are closing with more frequency because of the changing community.
Is it the fault of dating apps and the fact most of us meet online— rather than in a gay club? The first of the gay apps, Grindr is rightfully at the top of every list. How effective is it? Tinder is cute. When it launched the swipe feature, they jumped up to the top of our dating lexicon pop culture.
And many of them flaked before even a first message was exchanged. I managed a few dates in New York City through the app, some were nice enough and others were forgettable. Not a lot of guys use both. Scruff has also been at the forefront of a lot of the latest dating app features and they were one of the earliest to incorporate useful LGBTQ travel features. Of all the dating apps besides Grindr, it has been the second most useful when looking for hookups or sex. The Planet Romeo app also ly called Gay Romeo is most popular in northern Europe, especially among German-speakers.
One of the largest and most successful of the kink apps, truthfully, I found it confusing and difficult to use, so never actually managed to even finish completing a profile. Still, those that use it regularly, swear by it. I only recently tried out Hinge and actually kind of enjoyed it. There are conversation starters throughout and it just generally seems to be a more communicative community of users. While I never managed to make a date through using the Hinge app, I did get a few Instagram followers! It was always one of my favorite dating apps because I just loved the interface and the fact it can be used on both a desktop and through the mobile app.
Plus: answering the questions are fun. As for an actual review of the OkCupid app, in the past year, I had less than a handful of dates through the app. The Chappy app seemed to pop up in the gay dating world quickly—with a lot of cool events in the UK and America. A few de features make it awkward to fill out a profile, but once you get the hang of it, it does actually work. But while the app has a lot of contemporary features, I never managed to have more than the occasional brisk conversation with other users. And never snagged a date, either.
When I lived in Tel Aviv, the app was incredibly useful for connecting with locals because the other gay hookup apps really were dominated by tourists—and I was looking to meet locals. Similar to Tinder, Surge has a pretty straightforward interface, and despite a lot of initial buzz around their launch, I never really managed to get any traction using the app.
It looked sleek and felt cool as well as inclusive, but nothing ever seemed to come from it. The app is more popular in Asia which makes it useful for travelers to the region, or locals living there—but the most I ever had on the app were short conversations, and nothing meaningful. For review purposes, the Raya app works well enough, but its most interesting feature is its ability to connect you with interesting people. Because the Raya app is tied to your Instagram, it can be a cool way to connect digitally—if you can snag that initial interest. Hashtag Gay Twitter GayTwitter is a real and true community.
Flirty DMs and dick pics show up regularly enough, and the thotty pics that Insta-celebrities post only incite an already flirtatious online community in the app. Dating has never been easy, and when many of these gay apps came into the picture, things certainly changed. In my experience, many of these dating apps have made it easier to connect with other people I may not normally been able to encounter—whether because of distance or our own comfort levels at interacting in person.
There are so many gay dating apps in the market today. And besides all the specific apps, there are websites and forums as well—ones used for connections with like-minded individuals, ones for sex workers, for sharing nudes, for purposeful dating, or any other manner of online connections. And the funny thing? Have a suggestion for another gay dating app I should review? Leave a comment or slide into my Instagram DMs. Looking for a place to stay?
