GayFriendfinder is a gay community where single men meet other men for chat, dating, and hook-ups. It has social chat & forums as well as many ways of getting to know others. Joining is free; although most communication as well as viewing full profiles requires paid membership.
You'll be encouraged to upload photos to make your profile more attractive.
After sign-up, you can browse the many profiles hailing from all over the world. As with most other Friendfinder sites, Standard members can't view full-size pictures or even read the more detailed parts of profiles - only a thumbnail view is visible. Creating hot-lists and sending ice-breakers is however possible, but initiating contact via email or chat is not.
To gain unlimited access to the site's main areas, you will need to upgrade membership to Silver or Gold. Getting in touch with a potential match is then possible using the site's email, chat or instant messenger features. It also unlocks profile and picture viewing.
Social interaction is greatly encouraged. GayFriendfinder has polls, featured listings, photo rankings, blogs, an online magazine, and forums and groups for members to create and join. Finding active groups can be a bit of a "hit and miss" affair. Many appear to be dormant and have few members.
The website contains enough activity to make it worthwhile. As part of the Friendfinder network, it is secure, well designed and very easy to use. It offers a number of ways of getting to know other members.
While this site is designed exclusively for Gay men, FriendFinder has a companion site called OutPersonals, which is a much larger site and caters to the gay, lesbian and bisexual community.
