LGBT Dating


Online Dating

Anyone who's ever tried dating knows that it can be a scary—and at times frustrating—experience. Wouldn't it be nice if there was a place where you could screen dates before ever meeting them, or let someone (or something) else pick potential matches for you? In this guide we'll show you how to use the Internet to do all those things. We'll provide you with dating sites for people with specific interests or lifestyles, as well as sites that evaluate all these online dating services. We'll even show you how to stay safe with online dating.

LGBT Dating

The Internet has transformed dating for all populations, but the degree to which it has enhanced GLBT dating options is indescribable. No matter how small the GLB or T pool of potential dates in your city may seem, online you'll be able to expand your dating circle.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • You don't need to use a GLBT-specific dating site to find a same-sex date; many dating sites have same-sex dating options. Few traditional dating sites have transgender options, though.
  • Have a sense of what you're looking for when you begin—particularly if you are a gay man. Some sites are more sex oriented, and some are more dating/relationship oriented. You'll have a better chance of finding what you're looking for if you target your search.
  • Be honest, and be careful. If you misrepresent yourself online, you're unlikely to be able to maintain your charade in person. And remember that not everyone out there is who he or she claims to be. Be cautious about what personal information you disclose. And it's always a good idea to plan a first date in a safe, public place. If you're a teenager, stay away from sites catering to adults.
  • If you're looking for transgender dating sites, avoid any sites that use the term "shemale." It's probably not a legitimate transgender site
