Grindr is a clean looking app that allows you to filter through your matches who are in your local area. Grindr is free, however the premium feature which begins at All of this makes Grindr a big step up from using your local classifieds. Check out Gindr. Scruff also has employed the tribe feature on the app, but allows you to back search for people who are directly interested in the group of gay men you most identify with. This feature not only makes Scruff both a great dating and sex app, but it allows gay men to meet in safe spaces where they can connect in real life.
Of course, Scruff is primarily used for those looking to make a sexual connection, and the lack of requirement for a profile picture opens up users to fake profiles and catfish.
But, despite these minor setbacks Scruff succeeds where most gay dating websites fail- it moves beyond the solitary matching scheme and offers users the chance to attend events together, and to discuss queer news with each other. It fulfills the need for connection, friendship, sex, and, yes, community building, something usually missing from those other gay dating apps. Best for men looking for a relationships.
Chappy Free version: Yes See Details.
Chappy is the latest app to cater to the relationship-seeking crowd among gay men. In , Chappy was introduced in three major cities: Los Angeles, London, and New York. Chappy brands itself as an app that caters to three demographics — people who are looking for long term relationships "Mr. Right" , those who are looking something more casual "Mr.
Right Now" and those who don't know what they want "Mr. Who Knows". It's unclear whether Chappy will produce longer and more satisfying relationships for me than traditional apps like Grindr. If nothing else, the app at least gives people the illusion that such a partnership is in their future.
Delusions schelusions, we'll take it. Chappy is relatively small and young in app terms, so don't expect the overpopulated dating pool you might find on Grindr or Scruff. The app requires users to have Facebook for verification purposes, so it won't work for those who've rightfully abandoned the platform.
You're disproportionately likely to find people like this on the app. Chappy is free to download, though as their user base grows, so too might potential in-app purchases.
Best for inclusivity. A-List Basic: Yes A-List Premium: It would be great if someone developed more queer- and trans-specific dating apps. It's also not likely to happen anytime soon, due to the scale of investment required and the audience served. Dating apps need lots and lots of users to be successful, and with Tinder and OkCupid already sort of serving the community, I don't expect new ones to make major inroads anytime soon.
However, OkCupid was impressively much faster than other apps to expand their orientation and gender identity options.
Grindr is a classic choice for gay men who want a ton of options, very little small talk people has grown, so too have their opportunities in online dating spaces. Gay dating sites and gay dating apps for men have become the norm we accessed it, the site showed that only eight users total were online.
In , OkCupid began offering their users more than a dozen different ways to identify. The app currently offers users 22 different genders and 13 orientations to choose from, and also includes helpful descriptions of each for folks who are unfamiliar with this kind of stuff. And unlike Tinder, OkCupid gives so much more room for people to write profiles, answer questions, and explain their possibly questionable worldview.
While it's impossible for the app to screen out all the haters, you can get a decent sense of user's views on trans and queer people and whether they're gonna be an asshole because you love cable TV. It's free to download, but you'll have to pay to enjoy their Premium A-list features. If you want more people to see your profile, you can pay to have it promoted like you would on Twitter.
