    I haven't been on that site in probably two years. I believe there is nothing but

    1) guys looking to hook up
    2) and guys looking to hook up


    And overall, I just feel it's trashy. I got off the site a long time ago once I saw what it had to offer. Now that I've seen this site, I won't ever go back.

    Just my 2 cents.

    i believe you are slightly mistaken.

    gay.com is

    1) bots pretending to be guys looking to hook up
    2) once in a while a real guy .. looking to hook up

    Yeah its a pretty terrible site. You have to pay to get 'enhanced' features such as viewing photos. Pretty lame, I had an account on there for about 90 minutes, before I shut er' down.

    While I initially met my current boyfriend on gay.com, I have to agree that the site in general is complete crap. I haven't had an account with them in years.

    I was recently asked to do a survey on the site and couldn't believe some of the ridiculous tag lines they wanted to use to market the site as some sort of one-stop gay culture phenomenon... it's no wonder that PlanetOut Inc is going under--

    Long after I had deleted my account, gay.com was attempting a bait and switch. While I thought my account/profile was deleted, they kept it active, although I was not being charged for it, and I couldn't access it.

    They sent me an email to tell me that I had gotten such and such number of emails to which I had not responded, and told me that I could look at my profile and see the content of the emails, but couldn't respond, until I reactivated my account, or something like that.

    They had to have been very hard up.

    Although I did meet a person who became a boyfriend of sorts on gay.com, in general, it was a bust for me. Countless emails to guys whose profiles I thought suggested commonality, with no responses. That's why I chucked it.

    I also chucked Yahoo personals for the same reason. The next to go will be match.com.

    I still have not figured out why RealJock has been an infinitely better experience than any of those, even match.com.

    But gay.com was the worst.

    Since gay.com is based around regional chat rooms, its quality probably depends on where you live. I have to say that it's the only site where I've actually met friends that I see in person from time to time. It's true that there is a lot of chaff to sort through, but I've seen lots of worse sites.

    gay.com has some guys who arent looking to hook up. at least not all the time. I rarely frequent regional chat rooms, preferring the catagorized ones, unless I'm traveling and want to find out where all the fun is where it isn't obvious.

    manhunt is the worst, if you want to trash other websites. this one is better, except there doesnt appear to be much of a filter for the email system. i mean, why would I want to contact "a very pretty young girl" named ms. olvet?

    I've made quite a few real-life friends on gay.com and used to go to a monthly get-together here. Also, I like that I can get on there and talk to people in Spain and practice my Spanish.

    My husband and I met there way back in 1999 so I think it was quite different then. I popped back on when we relocated here to CT and yeah, it sucks. I suppose realjock works so much better because almost everyone here has a different purpose - namely physical activity that doesn't require being naked and if there's an exchange of bodily fluids, someone got seriously hurt!

    No, trust me Gigaram, Gay.com was very hookupish even back in 1999.

    I agree. Gay.com is strictly hook up these days. If you go into a chat, there will be about 5-10 guys asking who is interested to hook up NOW! And of course NONE of them have pictures. Its a joke. I have not met one person on there. I talk to the same friends on there that i talk to on AOL so there is no need for me to be on there anymore. I will be giving gay.com the boot.
