LGBT dating sites have become popular recently and it’s not hard to understand why - it’s pretty darn convenient to find all the singles in your area in one place. And if you aren’t a fan of the bar scene it makes it a lot easier to meet more singles. Even if you do like going out a lot, it takes the pressure off a night on town as you won’t be so disappointed if you don’t meet someone who tickles your fancy if you know you can come home and browse two hundred other singles in your area...
That said, what do you need to know before joining an LGBT dating website? Let’s have a look at that for a moment!
If you want to join the online community of LGBT singles, then there are a few things to bear in mind.
First of all, your profile pics - make sure to have at least five good shots of yourself and do include some that show off your life in general, as people are attracted to singles who lead an interesting, happy and passionate life!
You need a few words too, so if you aren’t a wordsmith you want to get a friend to help. Make sure it’s fun, shows off your personality and leaves people wanting to find out more. Have a look at other people’s profiles for inspiration.
If you’re using a dating site for LGBT then obviously you don’t have to specify that you’re gay, but if you are using an LGBT friendly dating website, then please remember to fill in your preferences for your match. In general it’s great to fill in the little “questionnaire” most dating sites offer, even a dating site for LGBT, as it will help filter out the people you aren’t interested in (such as people living in the other end of the country!).
There isn’t really one site that’s the best LGBT dating site, there are several sites that are good, including sites that cater to straight people too. What you want to do is check if it’s easy to use and has a lot of members and if it caters to what you’re looking for, be it a serious relationship or a fling (that might lead to more). Nothing says you need to limit yourself to one site either.
Online dating for LGBT can be fun, so don't miss out on it!
