    "Another chat app just what the world needs. But, seriously this is a nice little app and I love the emoji's. It may take a while for you to convince enough of your friends to download it to make it worth it but it didn't take me too long. "

    "Is this app safe? I'm a bit hesitant, I don't want my picture all over the dating app because I haven't come out yet. I just want to interact with some other gays out there."

DID YOU KNOW?

Regardless of gender, dating is always fun. With the easy access to the internet and the help of the handy smartphones, dating reached a whole new level. From traditional, it has gone virtual and fast-paced. Well, as they say in cliche, love begins with one hello. Yet, have you ever thought of how two non-heterosexual guys hit it off right away after a simple 'hi'? Beyond the interesting info on your profile, you need a well-lit selfie to catch some 'fish' in the sea. And for some, finding an actual date from a gay dating app is the most fun part of it. You may not believe in love at first sight but statistics don’t lie. It says finding true love is the ultimate goal for most of the online dating apps users. In fact, dating statistics says 20% of committed relationships started online. Some of these relationships are lucky to blossom into something special, some are not. Lucky are those who find one.

While there is a lot of easy gay chat apps out there, it takes more courage and perseverance to bag a great date. Yes, one can create a profile and state their clear and honest intentions. One can even write his interest, the traits that he looks for in a man, his pet peeves, his fetish, and whatnots. Yet, research says casting your net further afield is way better than being stiff. Another tip is never run into one of your old flames or his. It is never a good idea to go to places that remind you of your past. Rather go somewhere fresh to the both of you--somewhere you can both create great memories. Yet another thing to consider about using gay chatting apps is rejection. Look at the brighter side. Look at it as an experience that would teach you more about yourself than others.

    "This app is too open-ended and general purpose for this specific search request. I'd expect to get a result that is more tailored to my needs with this search. This app would technically work, but is not specifically meant for this purpose."
