Online dating advice for gay men
The likes of Grindr, Scruff, Manhunt and that type are mainly for random hookups, immediate sexual gratification not usually for romantic meals, sweet mutterings about the dream picket fence and having friends around for brunch. The key question is what to put on the profile, and here are the top five tips.If you are looking for rampant, immediate, no-commitment sex, then use a picture showing all your, ahem, features.If you are looking for something more long term and a life companion, then a picture of you casually dressed and ideally smiling is good.The dating sites that are focused toward long-term relationships normally have a no X-rated rule, and there is a thorough process of launching a profile.
