An Open Letter To The Gay Men Of Online Dating
A new app for gay men seeking connections with other gay men hit the market this summer -- but it's no Grindr or Adam4Adam. Mench'd gay man tired of internet dating sites, created by Justin Maxx, seeks to redefine the way gay men use online "dating" apps in order to make connections by setting a precedent for users: This app is exclusively for men seeking long-term romantic relationships. Maybe not so much. Many gay men have vocalized shared frustrations over interactions and connections established through Grindr or other location-based gay "dating" apps.
Many think that this way of connecting negatively affects one's chances of finding and sustaining a lasting connection. Noteable LGBT nightlife personalities have also expressed a concern over the way Grindr has redefined the way gay men meet other gay men, their way of building and experiencing community, and the overall impact on nightlife in general.
Mench'd functions by utilizing a series of questions to determine one's personality and compatibility level with other gay men looking for love in their area, pinpointing an exact percentage of compatibility. The other gay man tired of internet dating sites apps on the market are amazing for playful, fun, communication, but there is definitely a need for an app based around love. That being said, if you're tired of wading through pictures of naked torsos and profiles telling you "Masc For Masc ONLY," maybe you should give Mench'd a try.
