Relationships are complicated things as they are, but if you have a sexual orientation that is discriminated against as it is then it not exactly very easy to have an easy and fun time out on the town and meet other people who might be interested in pursuing any kind of attraction. As if this is not enough of a hindrance, some people just never get around to even trying to understand the steps of casual dating. They can rarely work up the courage to go up to a stranger they find attractive in a bar and ask them out, they have a fear of rejection as they have no way of knowing for sure if the other person is gay as well? Dating life is difficult when there is no way to ascertain without directly asking if someone can even be possibly attracted to you or not.
Without even the social constraints holding them back, the LGBTQ+ community has issues of self confidence and social anxiety like any normal person does and it feels completely wrong that everyone who is cisgender gets to have other options and avenues available in wide circulation, other than actually physically approaching someone without even the certainity that they might try and consider having a single drink with them.
One for All
Thankfully, there have been developments regarding the dating possibilities of gay people via technological avenues. For the longest time, heterosexual people have had the option of dating apps made available to them. They could create a profile, add a few pictures and write a few words about themselves such as age and preferences and look at other profiles. If they liked someone and that someone liked them back, it was a match. There were options for gay people as well but there was definitely a lot of ignorance and harassment, as well as unsurity. It was the bar scene all over again.
This was why people felt the need for gay dating apps. These apps work in the same manner as the ones intended for heterosexual couplings but the only big difference is that they are meant exclusively for gay people. This means that now, the gay community has to no longer worry about being unsure when approaching someone they find attractive.They can at least know that they will be considered at the same level of respect. Not only that, the creation of exclusively gay dating app is a huge step towards our future generations living well in the right kind of world society. Being treated as an important and fruitful marketingtarget group, huge enough to ensure successful earnings, shows that people are coming out in large numbers and accepting themselves more than ever before. And they are not afraid to look for the kind of affection and relationships that they deserve. No one should be derived of the simple joys of life, such as engaging in the healthy and fun kind of flirting with an attractive stranger.
