What’s up my gorgeous bits of fabulousness! I’m back for another blog for our Gay Barcelona – Blog Series! After a few topics about real-life face-to-face action, like regular clubbing, cruising and how to tackle the STD-problems some might have, it is time for some online Gayness! Oh yes, the apps. Websites. Grindr, Gay.com. The famous ones, and some of the less famous ones. I’ll cover a few of them to help you out if you are lost in what to pick. And what you can find in any of them! Just remember. All the apps are most likely to be NSFW. So. Be sure to run to the bathroom before using some of them at work.
So one of the first apps and probably the most famous app I am going to talk about is Grindr. Everybody knows about Grindr, or has heard of it. But if you are one of those gay guys that has been living on the bottom of the ocean, or some other bottom, then I will gladly tell you all about Grindr! It is supposedly to be a social app, some sort of regular chat app that is thrown out there for our gay guys to meet each other. Because gay clubs don’t always do it, because then you see them in real life. And yeah well, everybody lies every now and then about their age, and photoshop is a marvelous thing after all. However, I do not suggest using enhanced pictures of yourself or fake pictures overall, because IF you end up meeting the guy through Grindr, he will see how you actually look. Which is of course is still very, very fabulous. It’s just not that nice to let people think you are different than who you actually are.
But that, my unicorns, is what Grindr was / is supposed to do. Meet up with people in your near area (it shows how far away some guys are and you see their pictures and stuff), Gay Barcelona all the way! But what Grindr really does is kinda skipping the whole ‘let’s meet over a cup of tea with some cookies’ – part. 9 out 10 times the guys you will talk to on Grindr, or that will talk to you, are out there for that thing that biologically defines you sexually as a man. They want sex. Sex and nothing else.
Well, that 1 out of the 10th guy is actually out there for that cup of coffee and a cookie, but then again, that probably is some old 80 year guy on his deathbed, or someone that just been traumatized by his psycho ex.
Now how does Grindr work? It’s very, very simple. You make an account, log on the app, and you’ll see quite some guys nearby, ready to be talked to. You’ll see how far away there are, and a few photos they’ve uploaded for you to see. Click on the guy you are interested in and you are ready to chat. Yeah. That’s it. Easy peasy.
Now up for our next few apps, the explanation won’t be as long, as they all pretty much work the same. But Tinder will be our next Gay Barcelona App Awesomeness topic!
So Tinder has kinda the same mechanics as Grindr. It shows how far away someone is, you see a picture, etcetera. However, Tinder is officially a straight-people app. But that has seriously changed since its creation. You can now say if you’re interested in boys or girls. Or both. So no worries about that, you can still swipe your way till you find your Prince Tinder on his Golden iPhone. Unlike Grindr, you only get to see one guy at a time, and you’ll have to swipe if you’re interested or not. Right if you’re interested, left if you’re not. Easy as that. And it’s not even awkward or something, because the other person will never know if you’ve liked them untill they’ve liked you as well and you both got a match-up.
Tinder is a little bit less sex-focused as Grindr, but still. It has sex. Notice the ‘little bit’ in that sentence though. Because really. The difference is minimal. I must say that I MUCH more prefer Tinder over Grindr. It just seems more user-friendly. And better. And more fun. It’s like real-life bar scanning on your phone. If that makes any sense. It did in my head.
The last app-part of our Gay Barcelona blog won’t be a huge explanation. So instead of explaining exactly how all the other apps work, which will just bore you out if it didn’t already, I’ll just give you a few more options to try out yourselves and find some Online Gayness that’s totally amazeballs:
So now I’ve covered the phone section of this blog, let’s top it off with some real Online Gayness. Websites. Online dating / meeting / hook-up websites. It’ll be the last thing I’ll cover in this Gay Barcelona blog. I’m sorry I’m not sticking around longer. But no need to miss me. I’ll be back. Oh, if there is anything you specifically would like to be seen discussed, please leave a comment down below!
These websites are the typical, stereotypical, and, in my opinion, lame online hook-up websites. 9 out of 10 the people are purely out for sex. And most of them don’t have pictures. Or fake pictures. (Which can also be the case in the apps as I mentioned before)
So these websites are all the same, some a little more serious than the other. But just like I said before, most of them are pretty much to find some sex.
The most innocent one right now is probably Gay.com. It is about 50/50 on the sex / serious – ratio. You can see people come by on the website and you can click on them to start a conversation. You can exchange photos in the conversation. And of course hook-up if you feel like it. But that’s the same thing as with the apps.
To be honest, I don’t really think I have to explain all these websites in such detail, as they all are pretty gay-forward. So I’ll just give you a few options to try out;
Well, my fancy love-birds. As I didn’t use enough puns in this blog as I always do, here is one to end the blog. You’re gonna love it, because it is SO lame;
What does a gay horse eat?
Bet that made you smile.
Oh, and before I forget, have some wonderful holidays!
So, that’s it for this blog my gorgeous sunflowers. Have a fabulous gayday!
So long, gay boys!
