    No doubt realjock.com is one right? Or is it? Whenever I hear people scoff about "those gay sites" it's usually hook-up related sites. Once in a blue moon I hear someone mention RJ like it's an unpretentious website though.

    So anyway:


    [edit] This list is made up from Iceblink, with daily unique visitors:

    manhunt.net 237,942
    adam4adam.com 162,852
    gay.com 46,623
    towleroad.com 17,405
    queerty.com 17,095
    realjock.com 11,625
    bigmuscle.com 10,374

    Non-websites (smart phone shit)

    Grindr
    Scruff
    Gaydar

    manhunt is everywhere. I have a 30 day free pass, thinking of using it but realizing it will waste my time.

    Also, Grindr. Totally worthless but men love it.

    lol bigmuscle has that many hits? Must be a lot of lurkers - there aren't that many actual users...

    I'm surprised dudesnude (which I have been banned from 3 times) wasn't listed. It has a forum... it's all basically unlock your private photos stuff though

    dudesnude.com 48,800 unique visitors a day. That's more than gay.com

    gayromeo.com - I know a lot of people in Europe use it, and I've barely heard of anyone in the US using it.

    beuronline.com - French website used for Arabs.

    Honestly... you're a bad troll who keeps dragging shit into other threads where they shouldn't be. :/ I've reported you for cross threading abuse and reported your posts as spam. Please quit being a dumbass.

    The thread was about dating sites and why people choose one over another. Therefore, it is germane.

    For the "dating" websites I think it depends on where you live. If you're loookig in NYC then its going to be full of wierdos and horndogs but if you're in an area where there aren't that many places to meet gay people you see a lot more normal people.

    I tried one for a while called "lifeout.com" I guess it's still there. It's got forums and such. A bunch of people from my area flocked over there at one time, but then quickly lost interest.

    gay.com certainly seems to be on the way down, if not out. The PDX chatroom used to have more than 200 people every night. Now it's around 50. I think that those geographically-organized chat rooms is what keeps it alive though. The "hard core" of chatters are people that you actually see around town and they sometimes organize picnics or bowling night or the like. Can't really do that on sites like this where everyone is spread around the world.

    I can't really see the rationale why manhunt makes your list but dudesnude doesn't? At least DN has forums, profiles, chat. Though of course rather feeble compared to RJ.

    On the vast majority of sites, you get back what you put out. I have met wonderful people on:

    Dudesnude (best friend in Canada)
    Manhunt (best friend in LA)
    A4A (ex boyfriend that I'm still friends with)
    Grindr (TONS of super-sharp worthy gentlemen in major cities... skeezeballs
    elsewhere).
