Top Tips When Using Gay Dating Sites
No matter what site you sign up for, we have some easy tips that can help maximize your success.
- What are you looking for?
Figuring out what you’re after is key to succeeding on any dating site. Whether it’s long-term romance, casual no-strings fun, discreet or group play, or simply making new friends, this can influence what type of site you should join.
- Clear profile pictures
Many men using these dating sites are either not out or discreet and upload a blurry picture or crop their face out. If you want to get an edge and attract attention from men, you should consider uploading multiple photos to rank higher in searches.
- Choose a tribe
Whether it’s a twink, bear, daddy, geek, or dom, many free dating sites have a label system where you choose a ‘tribe’ to belong to. Members often use these tribes in searches, so labeling yourself correctly can help increase your chances of making a match.
- Sexual position
On many dating sites, sex is important. And as a gay man, it can be important to identify what position you enjoy if things get to that stage – it saves on disappointment! Place if you’re either the top, bottom, or versatile on your profile. If sex is one of the sole reasons you’re signing up, consider including it in your username for maximum effect.
- Respectful of time
It’s important to remember to be kind when using these dating sites. Some men may not come out of the closet or be inexperienced and new to m2m hookups. Be respectful and patient, and ultimately if you’re not interested, say so early on to save both of you time.
