I don't understand why it's hard to believe. I am on all these dating apps, but I rarely hook up. I have even written it on my profile. My picture is not revealing, but I am not wearing any shirt. We all know that how superficial gay men are in terms of meeting/dating guys. As much as you can deny, people won't show interest in you, if they don't find you attractive enough, specially on these sites. It doesn't mean I am ready to jump in bed with you.
For those who keep iterating that these apps are just for hook ups, please mind your own business. I can write a thesis on what you should or shouldn't be doing, but I don't go around telling people, especially online. As a gay men, meeting another gay men isn't that easy, especially if you are new in the city. So I choose whatever ways I can meet guys, except glory holes or orgies.
