Gays.com is a platform that aims to create a space where acceptance and love thrives among its members. It is one of the websites by Ideawise Limited, along with sites like Fuck.com and Fetish.com.

More than a casual dating platform, Gays.com is also a social media website, so members not only date, they also chat, mingle, and form an active and supportive community.

But does it? Or is Gays.com another platform that hustles the money out of you? We checked every aspect and cost of this site to unveil the truth, so read on and check it out for yourself.

Men in their mid-20s and 30s use this gay dating and social media website. The site is generally a hit for the younger population, but users who are aged north of 50 are also having fun interacting at Gays.com.

Top users of this website come from English-speaking countries like the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia. It also has quite a following from Germany and a smattering of members from several Asian and European countries.

In terms of status, most of the people who signed up at Gays.com are single and ready to mingle. Since the website advocates flirting and casual dating, most are in search of one-time things, a date, or even friendship. 

Still, you’ll come across someone who’s seriously looking for a relationship; it’s quite easy to mingle here as Gays.com will require you to include what type of relationship you’re looking for while on the site.

Lastly, props to Gays.com for inclusivity. Not only do they cater to the members of the rainbow community, females are also warmly welcomed to join in on the fun.

With topics ranging from Love & Relationships to Technical Stuff, it’s possible to connect with someone at a forum. That way, you know you share the same interests.

One of the upsides of Gays.com is that it lets all members—free and paying—to access communication features. This allows them to interact and form connections with other members with ease.

Profile Quality

Gays.com Profile
  • Profiles are arranged in a similar way to popular social networking sites
  • Offers profile verification feature to combat reports on bogus accounts
  • View detailed members profiles for free
  • Easy to supply and edit information
  • Standard accounts can view full-sized photos

    The profiles at Gays.com are presented in layouts similar to social media giants Facebook and Twitter. And like these platforms, profiles are detailed at Gays.com.

    Seven prominent sections compose a Gays.com profile:

    • Header

    This section will include a member’s primary and header photo, user name, location, and ratings. Since it’s generally better to shoot your shot with someone who’s active (for instant connection), this section will also include a timestamp of when the member was last seen online.

    • Contact Buttons and Gallery

    Right below their primary photo will be the four contact buttons should you like to take a bold step forward.

    If a member uploaded more photos, you can freely browse them right below the contact buttons. They may also upload a private photo here; unless you’re connected, you will only see a thumbnail with a locked icon.

    1. Personal Details/Facts and Figures
    2. Right below the gallery will be a member’s personal details, namely: gender, age, status, and zodiac sign. Facts and figures will closely follow and will include: 
    3. Last visible login
    4. Profile views counter
    5. Number of reviews
    6. Photo ratings
    7. Messages received counter
    • Visitors/Similar Members

    Profiles of the viewers will appear below the facts and figures. If the member you browsed seems to be your type, several similar profiles will also be included in this section.

    • About Me

    Located in the upper right corner is the About Me section. It will feature tags of the member’s sexual preference and their purpose at Gays.com.

    • My Wall

    For paying members, the My Wall is the section where they can post greetings or start flirting with a member who has caught their attention.

    • Activity

    This section lists the user’s activity while online at Gays.com. From a photo upload, a new friend, to their purchase of a subscription, you’re bound to find details in this section.

    Although there are not as many reports of bogus accounts, Gays.com still employs a profile verification function. Any registered member can verify their accounts; they have two ways to do so:

    1. Upload a selfie where they’re holding a piece of paper with their username and current date written on it. This photo will only be for the Gays.com moderators; it won’t be accessed by other members or third-parties.
    2. Get at least five members to save their profiles as “personally known.”

    Apart from the verification process, the fact that all members can freely check other profiles may also help a user keep watch for bogus or suspicious accounts.

    App

    Gays.com Mobile
    • No mobile app available
    • Website can be accessed through mobile browsers
    • Functions and features of the desktop version is available on mobile
    • Comes with ads for standard users

    Although Gays.com brands itself as a casual dating platform and social media website, it lacks a free-to-download mobile app. In this fast-paced and mobile world, the app may have been helpful for on-the-go members.

    Gays.com chose to optimize their website, so it’s accessible and friendly even when navigated via smartphones or tablets. The mobile site is less wordy to accommodate the smaller screens. The mobile view is supplemented with icons and visuals.

    There may still be some ads, especially for standard users, but what’s good about the mobile version is that the desktop’s feel, color, and functions are retained.

    Real Life Review

    “I haven’t gathered enough courage to come out yet, so I’m really thankful for Gays.com. Although I haven’t met a significant other here, I was given the chance to interact with understanding, supportive, and beautiful people. Soon, I’ll be happier and freer and I look forward to the day when I’ll be the one cheering on for the closeted members lurking at Gays.com.”

    Design & Usability

    As a dating and social media website, Gays.com features a stylish and modern look which we found befitting for its rather young users. White is the predominant color of the site, and it is neatly accented with the color purple and jade green.

    For those who are not as tech-savvy, the website is neat and friendly with a no-brainer layout that is easy to navigate even when you’re old north of 45. To the left of the main header (topmost of the website) is the Gays.com logo, which will lead you to the newsfeed. The Browse, Chat, and Community tabs, search icon, notifications, and the user’s avatar complete the main header.

    To go from one function to the next, hover the cursor on either of the tabs or avatar. A dropdown menu unfurls, and a user can click from there.

    Standard users may observe that banner ads are promoting the website’s sister sites. These ads may be removed once a user upgrades; still, these are not placed in areas that will bother or hinder the user from enjoying browsing Gays.com.

If you still have days or months left, you can still access all the entitlements of your subscription up to its expiration date.
