Now because it is location based it’s also very handy for those that want “a quick hook up” and nothing more.
Hence there are a lot of guys on there that are after one thing and one thing only.
As a promoter of good sexual health, this is a big tick in the box for me. Booty call usefulness again depends on your profile.
I currently pay for Grindr “xtra” (because I’m sad like that) and it basically gets you unlimited blocking capability and a much larger list of guys to view.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’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.Far be it for me to quote trade descriptions at them as I oversell myself but seriously?
