GLBT Dating

While being GLB or T is not all about sex or relationships, dating is certainly an integral part of most single people's lives. The Internet has transformed dating for all populations, but the degree to which it has enhanced GLBT dating options is indescribable.

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. Fewer 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 for 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 trans site.
