Top 5 applications to meet gay men

If you're gay, you should know that other sexual orientations envy the applications you have at your fingertips to meet up. The app market for gays has an amazing range and in addition, it's of good quality. However, there are alternatives that have managed to stand out as the best and to reach a wide audience.

If you're still not sure what are the top 5 applications to meet gay men, at we'll explain all about it in the following article.

You'll need:

  • A smartphone with internet access.

Grindr was created as a unique platform for homosexuals of all ages wanting to meet up.

This famous application allows you to include a large profile with different pictures and to chat with all the guys that are closest to you. In fact, it organisers users according to their proximity to you. You can add people to your favourites, send private photos and subscribe to Grindr Xtra, if you go over your free service.

Do you remember the contacts page of Manhunt? The application offers exactly the same service but as a mobile platform. You can manage your messages, find profiles similar to yours, gossip, see who's connected and contact them. (Beware, there's no instant communication on Manhunt, it's not like Grindr - it's like sending emails).

One perk is that there are search filters, where you can add what kind of man you're looking for either by weight, age, height and so on.


No ads, it offers unlimited, free, instant messaging and is based again on geolocation, so it's definitely an interesting alternative.

It's for gay men (or bisexual or bicurious), and is very similar to Grindr, so if you're tired of the people on the first application, perhaps you can try this one.


Do you remember the web page GayRomeo? Like Manhunt, it's a contact platform with different profiles of gay men to satisfy every taste. Like the second app we mentioned, you can't chat with those that you're attracted to, but you can send them an email message.


Imagine that you're tired of Grindr because the majority of the people are boring. Scruff is essentially the same but the users are completely different. If you're looking for a firefighter, military guys or designers, you've come to the right app.

Again, the GPS on your smartphone will be used to find the men that are closest to you, so you can have a good time without having to travel very far.
