Easy to Use
When you enter the website, you can browse among the different profiles and send “winks” to the profiles you like. Sending a wink to someone is simply a way to express that you like his profile, the person will be immediately notified if you send him a wink. If you want, you can also add profiles to your favorite list in order to remember them. There is also a “like gallery” that you can use in order to see profiles one by one and either click “heart” or “x” to either as a profile or pass on it. However, if you want to send messages to other members, you will have to upgrade to a paid membership. Other than that, Gaystryst has a few special features. “Flirtcast” is a feature to choose a pre-composed opening statement and to send it in masse. The “Safe mode” will allow you to increase your privacy and security in different ways. Finally, if you are wondering whether you should try a paid membership or not, there is a satisfaction guarantee: three days worth of premium membership to any of the Together Networks dating sites.
When you search for singles, there are different filters that you can apply to the searching tool. However, not all filters are available for the free version. You can search for singles according to your location if you go to the “nearby people” section, and you will see only profiles of users who live in your area or in nearby cities. But if you want, you can make a more precise search by specifying the age, relationship status, sexual preferences, body type, ethnicity, hair color, eyes color, etc. You can also sort your result by responsiveness (how frequently the members respond).
Safety & Security
When it comes to safety, there are different modes that can help you increase your privacy and security. Once you activate the “Safe Mode,” you have the choice between two different settings. The “Basic Mode” will prohibit accounts tagged as suspicious from getting in touch with you. And the “Full Mode” will allow only members verified by Gaystryst to send you messages. Also, you can easily report any profile that seems suspicious to you, and you can block members so that they can not communicate with you anymore
To sum up, if you are a gay man looking for another gay man, this dating site could be a great help for you. Indeed, they have a large user base, only gay men can register, and the website is easy to use. Also, the search tool will help you find matches more easily. Of course, the disadvantage is that you will have to have a premium membership to be able to send messages to other members. But you can still try it for free for three days if you want with the satisfaction guaranteed!
