    I got an iPhone and noticed that has a mobile app now, which for me is convenient because I'm rarely home on my computer to 'hang out' as much as I used to be. The mobile site is very user friendly, almost Facebook-like. I have asked some people and they liked it, but they're not gay. I am guessing a lot of gay people don't really go for when there is but I've been very disappointed in how they run the show (which is why I joined this, but nothing ever happens on here either). And no, match is not cheap - nearly a hundred bucks for only six months. For straight people who have thousands of choices within a 50 mile radius is one thing, but I am finding for gay men, it seems to be the exact same guys on every gay website there is. I do a search and there they are - the exact same guys I saw on, on realjock, on gaydar, etc...I'm not looking to pay to see the same guys I already see on the sites I'm having no luck on. Since match seems so popular mainstream, I am wondering - has anyone here tried it? What did you think?

    I've tried it... with no such luck. I have a friend who has tried it and met several guys in person. Unfortunately, he is still single. That site is dead to me.

    I put a profile there and eventually paid the money to join and was VERY disappointed. First off, they sent me "matches" that were way off the mark IE:
    my "must haves" included clean shaven and they would often send me bearded guys for matches. When I politely many times asked about that I got a form letter response thanking me for my participation and suggesting I rewrite my profile and check off my likes.... Grrrr I had done that several times from scratch.
    Eventually I got a note from someone saying they had received my note and were working on the situation,
    After emailing over 100 guys and getting fewer than 5 replies all of which were rejections, I canceled my membership.

    I ran many searches and when I ran the one to see who fit my likes and for whom I fit theirs,,, I got back ONE ( 1) uno, ichi only ONE person and I wrote to him, he read my profile and would not write back. A few friends I know had the same experience and also quit.

    My own research found more mutual matches than's so I give them a serious Negative review!

    I became a member on two different occasions, and feel it was a waste of time and money.... compared to other gay sites (well, 'bear' ones at least) the men on never seemed to want to meet... either for coffee to talk, or for sex! The second time I became a member it was in response to a 'nice-looking' guy who 'contacted' me... and I of course had to pay money to contact him back... it seemed legit at THAT time, but later I felt otherwise... when he didn't contact me ever again. I think it was a ruse... and I don't think they are on the 'up and up' IMHO.

    You wrote me..I was checking your posts..seeing what makes you 'tick'..but this Thread..well..HAD TO SAY IT!...

    OKCUPID.Com...Free...finally...lots of work to get a good profile going..sorry..but we are talking about MATCHING with guys right? well.they ask you bunches of questions and can see how much of a match/opposite you are with any guy you look at..more questions answered, closer results..

    ALLOt of guys are not answering questions gotta take it slowly.

    I have found LOTS of guys on there..most are talking/writing me on there.. I love it! and really do push allot of guys towards it. Again..I warn get what you put into profile..some questions.w.ell...says you are not serious.

    Also..the questions. are rated, by to the importance of what your IDEAL guy would answer and how much that question matters to pretty decent

    Sorry for the PLUG for another site..but I am glad that you gave this review of was gonna check it just saved me some bucks..

    Hugs and LOVE to you all. is so sweet with a partner..but..he's gotta be a partner.and you gotta be one right back. It's not easy, and it won't ever be. So, put your best foot forward and love the first man you see in the mirror...and take good care of him! He will do soo much for you!
