Finally! a dedicated website for single gay guys who are interested in more than just getting laid, navigating through endless torso pictures and spending hours on meaningless chat. Don’t get me wrong, who doesn’t love a bit of eye candy here and there but everywhere can become so boring and after a while some of us just need a little more substance.
Most gay chat sites, gay dating sites and gay hookup apps have become so convenient that we have all become accustomed to getting our needs met on tap, on demand, and when and where we want but really how many of us develop a connection that builds and develops over time into a fulfilling and meaning relationship from them?
Of course there are many success stories that have evolved from these types of encounters and there is certainly a demand and a need for them but not all of us are built that way. Some men young and older like a bit of old fashioned courtship, wining and dining and a little bit of romance, while others need to get to know the other person to build trust before they can be comfortable enough to let their guards down and allow someone into their lives. It is for this reason that we wanted to build an online space where guys can feel comfortable enough to get to know each other and not just judge a book by its cover but learn more about potential partners through our partner compatibility matching algorithm.
Some of us will remember the days when we answered an advertisement from the classifieds in the paper or gay magazine and had to include a stamped, self-addressed envelope! Back then it wasn’t so much a numbers game but more of a quality game where two people on similar paths really took the time out and gave an effort to get to know one another. As the internet took off chat sites were popping up all over the place mainly with open chat rooms but also with the option to chat privately with another member. Guys didn’t have pics back then so more time was spent getting to know one another but as we have moved into the lazy and convenience era it’s mainly become a numbers game where guys are mainly interested through visual appeal and first impressions. Sup, pic? Tends to be the length of a conversation starter on these platforms these days before the user moves on to the next profile.
It is for these reasons that we wanted to introduce a site where we could get back that vibe of meeting a guy in a pub for the first time but as you would in person (go by your first instincts), on Hitchim.com this would be the equivalent to (seeing your compatibility score) and saying to yourself “Oh, I’ve got a compatibility score of 86% with this guy, maybe we do have some things in common so I’m going to make an effort with him,” and not just dismiss a profile for another reason.
We are very excited to present this site to you with the primary goal and vision of Hitchim.com to bring single men together who want to take the time to get to know one another and build a life-long connection. There is absolutely no nudity and all members are required to have a clear face pic as the primary profile pic.
In the next post I’ll talk more about the features of the site but for now, feel free to check it out.
