    Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for NON-hook-up alternative apps to Scruff, Grindr, etc.? Looking for something similar, but without the "stigma" or "vibe" as being a hookup type of app on a smartphone? (with the intention of just friends, chat). Thanks!

    You could still use those apps to find friends, but I'm not sure how well things will work. Some guys state that they are looking for friends only. It might work, or those guys are really looking for hook ups too but just don't want to admit it.

    Grindr is supposed to be making a new app for men, women, gay, and straight for networking. The Grindr app for not hooking up might be what you want.

    There is no such thing... not for long at least. I've long since accepted the fact that Gay + Social Media = Hookup Site as t approaches infinity (math allusions for the win). There's always going to be some volume of the population, even a pretty large volume, using the app for hookups.

    That said, if you're looking for something more serious, there are others on there looking for the same, you just have to weed through and find them. I found all my boyfriends either on Adam4Adam or on Grindr. Sketchy, yeah, but again it's the nature of gay social media to become a hookup portal.

    RJ is the ONLY gay-specific site I've ever seen that is known for more than just hook-ups.

    I wonder why Grindr became a hook up app. Does it say anywhere on it thats what its for? I cant stand when someone messages me with "looking?"

    i just reply with looking at what?
