Gay sex dating website north korean dating site

Personally, the Mc Donald’s Drive-Thru approach to dating has never been my thing.

I’m not aggressive enough, I don’t like engaging in anonymous sex and to be frank, I am too neurotic to clamber up nine flights of stairs to the dingy flat of a man I have never even met before to partake in intimate relations. What really put me off the whole thing was a message I received within 24 hours of re-activating my account.

Grindr has acquired a somewhat iconic status in the gay community and understandably so.It was the first geosocial networking based site and as such, it made the gay-dating game mobile in a way which no other site had achieved before.It allowed men to identify and meet other men wherever they were, and therefore, implicitly at least, it promoted sex-on-the-go for which there is considerable demand.Although gay dating sites provide a useful platform in allowing men to meet each other, Christopher Halton writes for Pink News of how they can also put some gay men at risk.On Monday, I was one of 30 or so men to take part in the filming of an advert for Survivors UK, a lottery funded charity set up to support men who have been raped or sexually abused.

Fortunately, I have never been a victim myself, and attended the shoot merely as an extra.Beforehand, I researched the charity and read the testimony of a young man who had met someone he had been chatting to on an internet dating site.It was the first contact he had had with other gay men.Initially the date had gone well, but it ended badly and he was raped.As a user of gay dating sites, this made me think about the danger inherent in meeting men who I know nothing about, other than what they choose to tell me, which may or may not be true.My experience of meeting men from these sites has been overwhelmingly positive, and I have always prided myself on being a good judge of character. In reality, I never really know if the person I am about to meet is a safe bet. This realisation was further compounded when I recently re-joined Grindr.
