GayFriendFinder.com – Gay Matchmaking Site
GayFriendFinder.com- a gay matchmaking service
GayFriendFinder.com, is an adult matchmaking site for men to meet other men. The photo on the homepage, shows too men hugging and smiling as an advertisement for the sites content. When you choose to start your account, you create a new account. To do this you select what you are looking for, friendship, dating, serious relationships, or marriage. Then, you enter your birthday, and other information about yourself, including email, and username.
After this, you can put in information about yourself such as height, weight, race, and physical features, then lifestyle information such as dress, demeanor, whether you drink or smoke, what you do for a living, among other things. Once these are answered there is an introduction where you can enter a title and a little about yourself.
On GayFriendFinder, like many other matchmaking sites, you are required to go to your email and access the password that they give you, in order to be sure that you are actually the one who signed up. After retrieving the email, you may then sign into the site and can change your password from there.
As soon as you sign in on GayFriendFinder, you will notice that it asks you to upgrade to a paid membership, the pricing is fair, the longer you choose to use the site, the cheaper the monthly fee, however, you can look around without updating this immediately. There are several tabs along with top in a steel gray. These tabs include home, my profile, friends, chat, video, get local, blogs, groups, my favorites, and search. Why they do hassle you to update your membership, they offer what many other dating sites do not, free chat. It is toward the top of the page where you can log in and chat with other singles that are online when you are.
When you click on home, it allows you to upload a photo, shows your messages, pictures of online people, and photo gallery photos, some very explicit content so beware of this is you are a more modest user. There is a blinking upgrade now! button in bright orange to establish that you need to upgrade your membership.
When you click on your inbox, you will find a welcome message, and if you are lucky, you will have a sexy match already in your inbox that the computer has picked for you. This allows you to get started without having to do so much searching. However, to actually contact this person, you must upgrade your membership.
Under the my profile tab on this matchmaking site, you will find edit profile, upload photo, record and manage videos, manage photos and my cupid settings. Most of these are very self explanatory however the cupid settings on GayFriendFinder.com, had me curious, so I checked it out. Here you can choose how far the person you are interested in can live, what you are looking for, the age range you would like, what race you would like, what their religion, education, and marital status’ should be. You can even choose whether or not they can have children or if they should want, or not want children, or if they are a drinker or smoker, or how much they drink or smoke such as light smoker or social drinker.
The mail tab is pretty obvious, this is where you can check your mail, or if you have sent or received winks from anyone. You can also filter your mail settings, photos, your profile, and video intros using this tab. The friends tab has a page for your friends’ network, with their friends on it, and any new albums, bulletin, or invites that you have gotten.
The video tab shows videos of the most popular and latest members, and also this is the place where you can upload videos of yourself for others on the site to view, which is a great way to make matches on this dating site. Get local is a neat tab on the site, located next to the video tab. It allows you to see people in your area with groups, blogs, articles, and advice that you can use. The fact they are in your area, makes it more likely that a date with them will occur and that a match will be made.
If you are a blogger, like so many people, you can keep a blog, see other blogs, and search the blog archive to look for friends’ blogs. This gives you an opportunity to express yourself through your writing and let others on GayFriendFinder.com see you for who you are, helping this match making site get couples together.
The groups tab allows you to search for groups, view recent discussions and look through the online magazine. You can join groups here and post your own discussions or respond to discussions that are already in use. However, to participate, once again a membership upgrade is needed. The fee however, does seem reasonable and can you really put a price on finding your true match?
