BiggerCity is a dating site that caters to gay and bisexual men who have a specific fetish for chubs/bears. It's not a requirement to be a chub/bear yourself to join, but most of the members do have that build.

According to the website's own surveys, 33% of the profiles identify themselves as chubs, 28% as chasers, 19% as bears, 8% as chubs4chub, and 12% as no tag. Though the website covers 160 countries worldwide, its membership is centered in the USA and has a significant member base from the UK. It also targets Caucasian men aged 35-50 years old.

There are a lot of members active, but they don't initiate contact. They are mainly active in the community features, and only then can you meet and chat with them. BiggerCity is for those who are hoping to find love and meaningful relationships with like-minded individuals.

BiggerCity in Detail

  • Reading time 16 minutes
  • Lots of insider information for more success

Signing Up at BiggerCity

signup
  • Takes five to ten minutes to create a profile
  • Only needs email verification
  • One-page registration with less than 20 fields to fill up
  • Requires you to tag yourself as Chub/Chaser/Chub4Chub/Bear

Becoming a citizen of BiggerCity is quick and easy, and it's free! It'll only take you a few minutes, including email verification. It’s only a two-step process with only a few simple fields about login credentials, preferences, physique, and age.

However, the website will not allow you to register if you are below 18. An important note about the sign-up process is that it doesn’t have any safeguards around creating fake profiles, as its security measures are only a captcha and email verification. There are also no options to login via social media accounts or Google, like other websites. 

Once you are done with the registration process, you may now use BiggerCity's free services or opt to upgrade to premium membership to experience more special features.

Making Contact on BiggerCity

contact
  • Has options for video and voice call
  • Has a matchmaker option to recommend you profiles
  • Easily contact members from other parts of the website (forums, blogs, galleries)
  • Features members who are celebrating their birthdays today
  • Send 'Flirts' and virtual gifts
  • Sending messages to other users is free for everyone
  • There is a chatroom

The website allows you to find members (called 'citizens') in three ways: through search, recommendations, and through the interactions on community features. The search function on BiggerCity is pretty simple. It lets you find members based on location, active status, community tag, and several filters for physique (build, eye color, hair color, body/facial hair, weight, and height). It also lets you find people based on keywords.

Aside from this, you can find specific profiles through their usernames. The menu bar also features links to quick searches for those who are in your area and who is online now. You can also see members of BiggerCity who are celebrating their birthday today. This feature acts as a spotlight recommendation page. You can also turn on the matchmaker function that allows the site to suggest profiles that fit certain criteria about lifestyle, educational and career background, and willingness to travel/relocate.

The last method to find profiles is through participating in community activities. You can browse through the forums, blogs, sites, and chat rooms and simply click on the profile pictures of those who you’re interested in.

For all these methods, you can show interest in other members by sending flirts. Once you’ve chosen those who you’d like to contact, you can either chat with them or send them an e-note (or a message thread). However, you can’t send multimedia elements on a basic account. Overall, BiggerCity has a basic but reliable platform for member contact.

BiggerCity Profile Quality

profile
  • Allows you to view entire public profiles for free
  • Has no verification badges to distinguish authenticated accounts
  • Photos go through review by the site managers before being published
  • Lets you describe yourself with paragraph fields
  • Some photos are only available for premium users at the discretion of the uploader
  • The profiles are not very detailed
  • The profile information can be changed later
  • Profile pictures are visible to everyone for free
  • Select profile photos can be added later

The profiles on BiggerCity follow the typical template of casual dating sites. You can show your biodata, physique, interests, lifestyle, education, employment, location, preferences in bed, and profile photos. Interesting to point out in the profile information is the section about a user’s willingness to travel and/or to relocate, probably because the website has users scattered around 160 countries. This piece of information can let you know how serious someone is in meeting up.

Additionally, any uploaded profile photos have been reviewed by the site managers, enforcing guidelines that ensure that the photos are of people and aren’t sexually explicit. However, because of the volume of photos and videos uploaded on the website, it may take up to a week for your photo to be approved; which is a century in the digital age.

The full profile of all members are available to those with basic accounts, but there are certain photos that can only be accessed if granted an “Unlock” by the particular member. There are also photos on BiggerCity profiles that can be set to be visible to only those on premium accounts. If online safety and security is a big deal for you, you can also check out our gay dating test winners for more secure options.

BiggerCity App

App
  • Available for iOs and Android users
  • Full app features available for free
  • Message members through the instant messaging feature
  • Has no access to the community features

The BiggerCity app is a stripped-down version of the website, and only features match-finding and chat functions. You can easily browse through profiles in a photo grid. There aren't a lot of members on the app as compared to the website, but they do respond quickly. BiggerCity app has some occasional glitches when used simultaneously with other applications.
