I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

100 Best Dating Sites





If you’re a gay man who has considered online dating as a
romantic option in your life, it can be a great venue for meeting guys with
whom you can connect and share companionship, love and even lust…just depending
on what you’re looking for!  However, if you are venturing into the world
of cyber dating for the first time, deciding which site to use can be
overwhelming.  Lucky for you, we’ve taken the liberty to compile a list of
the top four best gay dating sites to use when looking for Mr. Right…or Mr.
Right Now.




Check these out: 





#4:  ManHunt. For you guys out who aren’t ready for a serious commitment,
ManHunt.net offers you a more casual dating experience.  This site allows you to sign up for free, but
to gain full access to other single guys, you will need the full
membership.  With this comes to ability
to browse profiles, email and flirt.  ManHunt
even has its own online sex shop! 
Because of the sexual theme of this site, most men signed up are just
looking for a quick hook-up so brace yourself to see some X-rated profile
pictures.  If this is more your speed, ManHunt
and its guys are worth a few clicks of your mouse.





#3: 
Gay FriendFinderAnother
favorite online dating site catering to gay men is Gay FriendFinder.  This is a smaller site, but still showcases
tons of eligible guys forming a highly interactive and fun community that
allows you to chat, instant message and email. 
You'll find gay singles here looking for everything from long-term
serious relationships to casual dating and hook-ups.  One fun feature gay FriendFinder offers its
users is an interactive magazine complete with articles, comments and racy
stories by readers. By signing up to
this service, you can sort your matches and browse single guys by criteria such
as geographic location, profile characteristics, relationship goals, etc.  An added perk to this website?  It’s free to try!





#3:  Match.comMatch
is one of the most popular and widely used online dating services on the web
and not long ago began a widespread campaign directed towards members of the
gay community.  This site is easy to
navigate and provides you with all the tools you need to find a gay date at a
competitive price (with a 6 month guarantee stating if you don’t find a date,
you’ll get your next 6 months for free).  Because Gay Match is known for their high
success rates in turning out happy couples, if you are looking for just a hot
bedroom scene to add to your collection, this site probably isn’t for you.  However, if you are on the prowl for a
serious, long-term relationship with the potential for love then you’re in the
right place. 





#1:  Gay.comThis is one of the largest
online communities for connecting homosexuals across the world (with over 3
million currently active members!) and its matchmaking resources make it one of
the most recognized names in the online gay dating industry.  This cyber dating service allows you to build
a very detailed profile and with that you have the opportunity to upload a
dozen photos of yourself so that you can flirt via live chat, video chat and
private message.  Not only do you have
the tools needed to meet guys everywhere, but you can also use Gay.com to read
articles, enter contests and even stay up to date on current issues in the news
and entertainment.  Give the site a test
drive by taking advantage of their free trial period and purchase a membership
(for a competitive price) if you like what Gay.com has to offer!





Now you know the
top four picks for the best gay dating sites…awesome!  But before you begin your online dating
journey, it is important to be aware of the dangers associated with this method
of finding a match.  Because of the
anonymity that the internet provides, you never know if that cute guy you’ve
been talking to is really who he says he is…so be sure to arm yourself with the
following safety tips to lower your risk of running into a potentially harmful
situation: 









  • When making your
    profile and through initial communication with a guy, never give out personally
    identifying information such as your home address, place of business, financial
    details, email address, phone number or your last name.

  • When meeting for
    the first time with someone you’ve met on the web, be sure to do so in a
    crowded, public place without relying on your new guy for transportation.
      Let a friend or family member know where you
    are going, remain observant of your surroundings and skip the alcohol.

  • Always listen to
    your gut.
      If your intuition is telling
    you that something is wrong at any point during your interactions with a
    cyber-guy, cut off all communication with him.
     
    If he’s pursuing you for the right reasons he won’t make you feel
    uncomfortable.
