What’s the difference between one gay dating website and another? Well, some gay singles prefer dating sites that are open to all (you just choose if you want to meet men, or women, or both - there are plenty of sites that cater to both straight people and the LGBT community), whilst others prefer specialized sites, like a gay male dating site, or a lesbian dating site.
Dating sites also vary in that some are for casual dating, others for more serious dating and yet others for both.
If you are looking to meet local gays, why use a gay online dating site? Because there are more gays on a dating site than you’ll ever find in the one bar, or at the one party. It simply increases your chance of finding someone you’ll click with. Especially if you live in a smaller city as it will connect you to people in nearby towns and cities as well.
If you are looking to meet gay men, or someone from the LGBT community in general then gay online dating is a great tool. It definitively takes the pressure off “having” to find someone when you go out and you will find people from all walks online, perfect if looking for gay interracial dating.
If you’re new to writing gay personals here are some tips.
First of all, upload some nice profile pictures of yourself, which also shows off your life. People want to get an idea of who you are from looking at your pictures.
Secondly, write a nice profile, which shows off your personality. Keep it positive - talk about what you like in life and what you are looking for, not what you don’t like and don’t want to find through gay dating online.
Thirdly, to find gay men and women you have to reach out. Don’t just wait for others to contact you, rather get active and send messages to those who catch your eye. And really do send messages with a personal compliment, instead of winks. Studies have shown if you use a gay site, or any site for that matter, people are more likely to respond to messages.
Once you’ve sent a few messages back and forth - ask them out for a quick coffee. A coffee has none of the perceived pressure of a proper date and it’s a quick and easy way to find out if there’s chemistry in real life.
