Recon: Recon is like FetLife, but specifically for gay and bisexual men

Recon: Recon is like FetLife, but specifically for gay and bisexual men

The very, very specific:

Feeld: Feeld specifically caters to ethically non-monogamous folks, regardless of sexual orientation. So if you’re someone who’s polyamorous and looking for another partner (or to date casually), Feeld is a great option. If you’re looking to join the 18% of men that have had a threesome, Feeld just might be Phoenix hookup sites for you. Whether you’re in a couple or flying solo, the app will help you match with other people looking for a party of three. The app also has a “hide” setting so you won’t match with your Facebook friends.

Scruff: If you’re a guy that’s into hairy dudes, say hello to Scuff. The app functions similar to Grindr, but some guys report liking it more because they find the men on Scruff kinder and less judgmental than the men on Grindr.

Sweatt: Fitness routines are very important, and you just might want to meet someone who also goes for runs at 5 a.m. Sweatt lets you add your workout habits to your profile, from how many times a week you workout to what workouts you most enjoy.

The kinky apps:

FetLife: If you’re someone who has very particular kinks and fetishes, and it’s necessary that your partner shares these niche kinks, then you should try FetLife. FetLife has been around for over a ong kinksters and fetishists. It started as a kinky social networking website (think Facebook, but for kinky fuckers), but has since evolved into an app you can use to find that special someone.

(That said, FetLife also has plenty of gay/bi men on it too!) Recon started as a website back in 1999 but then became an app in 2010. If you’re into leather, feet, bondage, jockstraps, and so much more, then Recon is the app for you.

The paid apps:

Match: Match was launched way back in 1995, and it hasn’t slowed since then. With Match, you’re not limited to people you match with, and you can view pretty much everyone’s profile, but you can also set filters if you want. Match can also recommend people for you, and the “Missed Connections” feature will let you know if you’ve been geographically near someone else who’s on Match.

eHarmony: While eHarmony allows you to create a free profile, you have to pay for pretty much everything else, including messaging. The site uses a 150-question long survey to find your compatible matches, so you know everyone on there is pretty serious. eHarmony’s sister site Compatible Partners is geared towards members of the LGBTQ+ community.

and need someone to match your BEE (Big Elite Energy), check out Elite Singles. You fill out a questionnaire and the app will present you with potential matches. The app also lets you know who’s been looking at your profile.

The up and coming:

#Open: A new dating app that launched in early 2019, #Open specifically caters to people in (or looking to be in) ethically non-monogamous relationships. You can sign up as a single or a couple. It’s an incredibly inclusive app where you can choose from 24 different gender identities and 23 sexual orientations. The demographics on the app are pretty mixed but skew towards bisexual folks. Roughly 40% of people on the app identify as straight, and the rest are attracted to more than one gender.

Pickable: Women are completely anonymous on Pickable, and they’re the only ones allowed to browse through potential matches. Men create profiles with their photos and basic info, and they’ll be notified when a woman wants to chat with them. Once a woman’s chat request is accepted, either person can send the first message. Unfortunately, Pickable can only work if you are attracted to the opposite sex, but the app says they’re working on an LGTBQ+ only app.
