The first, largest and secure dating site solely dedicated to gay males seeking quality, long-term relationships!If you are just looking for a one-night stand, this is not the site for you. Do you wish you could find an easy and convenient way to meet someone without dealing with the crowds of the clubs and bars?
A decade ago, I just didn’t have the emotional confidence to refuse.
I suspect that while there are a lot of young gay men who are sexually empowered and psychologically well-adjusted, there are also many who suffer from low self-esteem as a result of having grown up gay in homophobic environments.
I duly reported him and made the decision that I just didn’t need Grindr in my life. What this all too common sort of unwanted communication illustrates is that whilst gay dating sites provide a useful platform for meeting men you may never otherwise have had access to, they also further diminish the importance of intimacy in favour of instant sexual gratification.
That’s not to say that anonymous sex is inherently wrong, it’s merely an observation I have made, and one which has greater implications for our gay youth than any other demographic.
They are risking both their physical and mental health, and they are willing to do it because they crave the love, acceptance and security they haven’t found at home, in their communities or within the educational system.
Anyone who has spent time on Grindr or Gaydar will know that it is common to receive sexually aggressive messages accompanied by photographs of the sender in provocative poses, often naked.
It allowed men to identify and meet other men wherever they were, and therefore, implicitly at least, it promoted sex-on-the-go for which there is considerable demand.
Personally, the Mc Donald’s Drive-Thru approach to dating has never been my thing.
In many cases, these will be positive experiences, but not always.
