    Joined Manhunt last night and it seems like a sick enough site, tons of guys in my area. The only issue is that its ridiculous if you only have a free membership...I've barely been on it but I've already used up my quota of messages and profile clicks (I believe only 10 of each in 24 hours...was messaging back and forth with this one guy and now I can no longer see some of my new messages).

    A) Is it worth it to upgrade to unlimited membership?
    B) Does it show up on your credit bill as Manhunt, or can you do is discreetly?
    C) Are there legit guys on here, or is it just as creepy as Craigslist?

    If you like random hookups and aren't getting enough of them, go for it.
    There is no other reason to join, much less pay.

    depends on what you want, i did the 30 days for 10bucks, i've met one guy who was a nice guy and we still are friends, like a lot of gays, there's more lookeeloos than anything who won't answer an email but love to troll sites. 10bucks nowadays you can piss against the wall after one drink....don't think i'll renew tho...keithicon_cool.gif

    I think it's 24 profile views and 10 emails per 24 hours with the free membership. You can use the IMer if you "meet" someone you'd like to chat with. I made a profile over a month ago and haven't seen anything that's inspired me to pay. But I'm not into the instant hook up kind of thing. I prefer to play hard to get for awhile.

    This is what I found on the membership purchase page...
    manhunt saidAll transactions are secured by VeriSign™
    Your account will be discreetly charged from Online Buddies, Inc

    Eh its not worth it. I get on just to laugh at people and their attempts to pick me up. Its why I seldom go to a gay bar but laugh it up when I do. Nothing to really look at, no bravado and so many closet cases that Mr. Tumnus is having some rather busy tea parties.

    I don't think any ONLINE website to do with gay ppl is decent. In terms of there being no sexual presence. Even the ads on some decent sites like here and gay.com are pretty nasty

    Every gay medium is full of SEX SEX SEX

    Every site, every magazine, every TV cable station

    I'm not a member but it seems like it's not worth it. Personally I like connexion.org for dating.

    Instead, why not do something liberating? Join a sports team or other group that interests you.

    It's a great site if you like guys who will flake on you, be rude and have an occasional shitty hookup. Ha ha. Maybe that's just what I've found.

    It is what you make of it. If you're just looking to date and put that on your profile you won't get as many messages but stick to your guns and use it for what you want to get out of it.

    Here's a tip, choose a foreign location for yourself and you get all of the pay features for free. I was paying for a few months and a few guys told me about this tip. It's weird but it works. I think they're not allowed to charge outside the US.

    Manhunt is really a waste of time, compared to sites like RJ or manjam or dudesnude.com

    I'm just going to repeat the same refrain here ... manhunt is good for random hookups and that's it. So if you are into that, go for it. But don't expect anything else from that site. And don't pay for membership there.

    I allow my self 1 pay site...and Manhunt is what I've chosen.
    I've actually made friends on there....and now I have places to stay in LA, NYC and Miami....and I've taken them up on their offers.

    And guys coming to DC on business....have had some nice drinks and dinners too.

    Just as here on RJ.....you figure out the fake profiles on MH...and yes...plenty of fake profiles on RJ too.
