Gay Friendfinder Review

7.8

GayFriendFinder.com

After the incredible success of Friend Frinder, one of the original online dating sites, the company created a version of the site for homosexuals only. It is possible for men to search for other men on Friend Finder of course, but this site allowed the company to build something that could completely focus on gay love. GayFriendFinder is the result and like it's sister sites, Adult Friend Finder and Friend Finder to name just two, it's a highly popular place.

Our GayFriendFinder Review - How Does It Work? 

The sign up process is very quick – after only a matter of seconds spent selecting your search preferences and providing your email (this has to be confirmed via an activation link for security purposes) you are in the members area. It's a busy home page with enough options to keep you interested for some time. Although the layout is the same as casual/ NSA sister site MenNation (see our review here), this site lacks the webcams and other features that tend to be used by such hookup sites. This means that the members on Gay Friend Finder can focus on the search for a single man in their area, rather than being distracted by anything that isn't there to aid their quest to find a homosexual relationship.

This does not mean that GFF lacks fun or good features though. The site boasts some very nice touches, such as instant messaging to allow swift communication between members that are simultaneously online, as well as the innovative “points” system used by all of the Friend Finder network sites, allowing users the chance to earn points by contributing to the site (for example, writing a blog) or as a reward for enhancing their profile (adding images, videos clips, etc). These points can then be redeemed for profile upgrades, saving members' money and helping them to get more from their gay internet dating experience.

Some More Functions Of GayFriendFinder

Other features include some very innovative takes on the usual search mechanism, such as “Hot or Not” searches, where you can “like” anyone from a steady stream of users shown to you based on their profile picture, or the ability to filter searches to show only VIP members, people in your vicinity or those members' that are online at the same time as you. These all allow a more efficient methods of searching that can help you get chatting with other gay men on the site in a swift fashion. At the same time, the more traditional means of searching is also available, letting you search by age, location or other typical parameters.

The site is very easy to navigate and works well on all of the devices we tested during our two week review. Another positive is the number of users the site has; in each of the five cities we tested Gay Friend Finder in, there were always a plethora of members in our search results, many who had comprehensive profiles (images, text descriptions, etc). This might well be due to the aforementioned points system, which rewards GFF members for spending time improving their profile while at the same time ensuring a better browsing experience for all (and improved chances of incoming communication for those that take the time to improve their profile, which is essentially your 'shop window' on a dating site).

Is GayFriendFinder A Good Gay Dating Site?

All things considered, it's nice to find a popular gay dating site that doesn't feel the need to encourage it's customers to be overly risqué or cross the line from tasteful to smutty. This site is clearly designed for gay men that want to find true love and with the clever features and number of members, it's easy to understand why gay men frequently turn to this site when looking to meet new people online. We'd certainly recommend it as a good place to start if you're after something meaningful rather than something temporary.

Remember gents, you can increase your chances immensely by joining a few top gay dating sites at the same time. Test them and see what combination works best for you and you'll increase the likelihood of responses and offline dates.
