Best Gay Dating Apps for Older Guys!
Remember the last time someone told you on Grindr that age is just a number? Neither do I. If you are a mature man looking to enjoy his golden years with someone special Grindr is not the app gett that.
Heck, I don’t even recommend Grindr for younger guys who are looking for anything other than a casual romp. See my article on how Grindr could be what’s keeping you single. That’s why I’ve put together this list of gay dating apps and sites for mature guys just like you.
#1 Meet Pinoys – Gay Dating Website
Are you adventurous and willing to (a)broaden your horizons? Do you like slender, smooth, Asian guys? Meet Pinoys is the site for those who are interested in looking abroad for guys who don’t care about age and love dad bods! If you really want a space where age doesn’t matter you should try this gay dating site. Read my article gay international dating and how to make it work.
#2 Match.com – Dating Site
Match.com is one of the world’s largest dating sites with over 9 million subscribers paying each month. It’s pretty hard to believe you couldn’t be able to find someone on this site. The downside? Besides the fact that its paid dating site it can feel overwhelming. Don’t get me wrong the site does have a great advanced search option which can help you narrow down your search but still with so many people to chose from it can feel like a monumental task.
The biggest benefit, though, is since its a paid site the guys on there will be serious. It’s also not that expensive. Check their promotions. I personally would rather go with a niche site or Compatible Partners as they do most of the matching leg work for me.
#2 Growlr – Gay Dating App
Are you looking for an oasis from the mainstream gay dating culture? Growlr is the number 1 gay dating app for bears. By the way, you don’t have to be large to be a bear. The bear movement started off as a space for large hairy gay men but not it’s an all-encompassing movement for any gay man that doesn’t feel they fit into the mainstream muscle-bound twink gay culture.
Best of all it’s totally free to use! Creating a profile on Growlr is free and easy. You only need to manually fill out the sections that best describe you. However, this is all optional so profiles are not concise and clear. Fake profiles can also be created, as the app is not strict and does not conduct tests or background checks on every member (remember it’s free). Download Growlr
#3 Scruff – Gay Dating App
Scruff is another gay app with a large membership base in the United States and Canada. This app isn’t as good as Growlr but you have a wider array of men to choose from. Although the app has been criticized for not doing enough to quash blatant racism in the last few years. Even with Scruff’s high popularity, the app has been suspended by Google Play Store several times without disclosing the reason. As a result they’ve really clamped down on racy photos.
# 4 Compatible Partners – Gay Dating Site
If you are serious about finding a partner that could become your future husband or wyfe* then you need to try Compatible Partners. The website has many checks to make sure guys on the site are serious. First of all, you have to go through an extensive questionnaire before you can even join the site. Second, you can only receive messages from those whom the system matches you watch.
Third, being a paid site it means all the guys who message you have skin in the game. No more guys who aren’t sure what they want. See your matches for free compatible partners. You can also read my full review where I talk about what happened to me after I signed up for the site.
# 5 Thai Cupid – Gay Dating Sites
Are you adventurous and willing to (a)broaden your horizons? Do you like slender, smooth, Asian guys? Thai Cupid and Filipino Cupid are sites for those who are interested in looking abroad for Thai and Filipino guys. If you really want a space where age doesn’t matter you should try these two international gay dating sites. Read my article on gay international dating and how to make it work.
*Wyfe (n): a male who plays the female role in a same-sex marriage. Usually the more effeminate partner but not necessarily
