Hornet also positions itself as more of a community platform for the gay men, giving you the option to see events and stories from other users. Grindr has become very well known over the past few years. Users have cited its big user base and its popularity as one of biggest draws, a good place to explore and chat without feeling tied down. A committed relationship is hard to find, even with an excellent dating app with great features. EliteSingles is one of those great gay dating apps.

This doesn't mean the haters don't have a point, but in general, the quality of people you find on Tinder is no better or worse than you'll find anywhere else. Have faith! 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.

However, OkCupid was impressively much faster than other apps to expand their orientation and gender identity options. 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. Spot feature to give app users Pro features. This works in a similar way to Grindr and Scruff — you get matched with someone who catches your eye and then the two of you take it from there. What makes it a bit different is its aim of avoiding bigotry and negativity that can be found on other apps and there is subsequently more diversity here.
