California is widely known of its gay community which is not only highly active in non digital space but gay dating online is very popular as well. San Francisco is the most famous about its openness and gay society. Online dating sites among gay people is just as popular – if not more popular – as among people interested in the other gender. It is the third most popular way to find a date, right after to find a date at school, at work or through friends and based on data from 2008, 26% of gay men like to visit online dating sites.
We have been spending more and more social time online than in “reality”. You might also experience that even at the dinner table your friends (or you) can’t stop checking their phones for the latest updates on social media platforms or to resist the temptation to reply to chat messages. We are online all the time and this expands the playground of dating as well, brings us new opportunities and resulting in finding our match easier. These online tools can be great to meet with people who you most likely would never had the chance to meet with and might help you to stand up for your needs, being who you want to be in a supportive environment.
We are privileged to see the change how gay couples are treated by the society. There is still a long way to go but what a better sign we can witness that we are on the right track than the fact that gay marriage is legal in California. According to a study by the ICLA School of Law’s Williams Institute, about 9 million Americans are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. Another figure to give us some idea how many people is involved in this topic is that the total numbers of gay couples in the U.S. were 901,997, counted by the Census Bureau in 2011. Meaning that there is a significant number of men out there, seeking for some kind of relationship with another male. We can be insured that online gay dating is successful among gays and lesbians. Based on a study by Michael J. Rosenfeld (an associate professor of sociology at Stanford) 61 % of same-sex couples met online between 2007 and 2009 in the U.S.

Datemenow.com also has a gay dating site, where you don’t need to filter other members based on their sexual orientation, as all the other people you can see are playing in your league. However I heard from a gay friend of mine that it is easier to pick up heterosexual men in bars than gays, as they are curious as hell to experience how is it to kiss another guy or to try even more. They obviously don’t admit it, they lock down those curiosities or are afraid to show it but the curiosity is there they say. I don’t know if this is true in general, maybe yes maybe not, I am also curious about the truth though. You might also like the challenge of picking up a straight guy, as the hunting game is a bit trickier than normally. But in general or for the “weekdays” you might prefer to flirt with gay guys who understand you more and don’t come with their swallow hetero excuses over to try attract straight members on general dating sites.
