I’ve gone with a small selection of the ones most people appear to have heard of (or that came recommended to me). Love it or hate it the fact is that most (emphasis on most, but not all) gay men have been on it at some point over the last six or seven years.
I gave it up for two years when I was with my boyfriend and didn’t miss it but now that I’m single again it does become a little habit. Grindr sells itself as “the best gay dating app” and yes as far as technology goes it is the simpler of the apps out there.
I’m undecided if it’s worth paying the extra few pounds for.
It could be to remove the ridiculous amount of adverts that are on the free version.
Well I can safely say I’ve been on a little journey boys and girls and let me tell you it’s a maze of nonsense out there.
Ranging from the apps that Cupid would be proud of to the apps that try and fail miserably there are literally countless numbers of apps out there for you to chose from. Now if you haven’t heard of Grindr then where have you been for the last five years or so?
But actually, if you’re looking for something different then POF could be for you.
I’d say out of all of the profiles that messaged me during my time on here a good 50% were “non-UK” based.On the ‘looking for love’ scale, if you go onto it with low expectations when it does happen (and I know that it has) then it’s a pleasant surprise. Now I fully accept that was being prejudiced having that view and I took the plunge some months ago and signed myself up with an account.Otherwise, I’d recommend it for visiting new areas and seeing who is about or for those days when a booty call is really all you want (and don’t deny that you have those days, because we all know that you do! For months I have resisted the urge to join Plenty of Fish because, rightly or wrongly, I saw this type of site as the last chance saloon of singledom. I’m all about challenging perceptions and all that so why not start with my own?I have to say that I was surprised a little with what you are given.Yes, it’s the same faces on here as there is on Grindr but actually, this is geared up more to those just looking about to see who wants to connect.On the upside it does let me detail my height in feet and inches (it’s the small things. Again, most of the people you’ll find on Grindr or Jack’d you’ll find on Wapo but it does seem to be more of a mixed bag. What I also like about Hornet is that it asks you if you know your HIV status and when you were last checked.
