GaysgoDating – The Verdict
GaysGoDating is owned and managed by the same company that operates other online gay sites, such as BuddyGays and TimeSpace Services. Its core aim is to create a friendly and vibrant community for single men, providing them with the opportunity to meet new like-minded people online.
At first glance, it certainly looks as if GaysGoDating has succeeded in achieving its goal. There are only gay men on the site, which is a good sign as it indicates that the site does cater to and serve its advertised target audience. Another good news is that the membership seems to be equally split between all age groups. In line with other online gay bear sex sites, users get the opportunity to create and complete a personal profile on registration. All of the members on the site have main photos visible on the site. The site will complete searches and deliver matches based on the location and age range you have indicated as your preference.
GaysGoDating shares many characteristics and features with its sister site, BuddyGays. For example, members are categorized into particular tribes that they can identify as or search for. These include names such as ‘clean cut’ – a single man that is close-shaven without any facial hair; ‘Jock’ – a single who would describe themselves as athletic; and ‘BDSM’ – to show that you have an interest in BDSM.
Registering with GaysGoDating is an easy process. You need to verify an email address, but most of the registration process steps can be skipped if you want to get on with the business of chatting to single men online. You will be sent a confirmation link to get your account activated and up and running when you sign up. It is not compulsory to upload the main photo at this stage, but we would advise that you do. After all, it is common knowledge that users of online gay bear sites who include photos and videos on their dating profiles see the most activity and receive the most interest from other users online. Acceptable formats are JPEG or JPG. Photos should not be larger than 8MB.
Making contact with other users on the site is easy. There is a free search function, although messaging is reserved as a premium feature. Other free features include the ability to send likes to indicate that you are interested in another user. You can also like people by adding them to a favorites list. Compared with many other sites, the messaging features are fairly limited overall. However, keeping things straightforward can also be an advantage.
The quality of profiles on the site varies. There are certainly some fake profiles evident, but, fortunately, these are easy enough to spot. In general, many of the profiles of users include enough detail for another member to decide whether they would want to get to know a person a little more. However, one disadvantage of skipping most of the steps of creating a profile during the set-up process is that you end up with many profiles lacking in detail. As a way of dealing with this issue, you can send an ‘Ask to Add’ prompt to another user to request more details and information.
