Gay dating cites magellan model maestro 4050 updating
A new dating app, specifically for gay men, has been launched with the aim to give users a choice between relationships or more casual hook ups.
Chappy, a fusion of ‘choice’ and ‘happy’ is the brainchild of Ollie Locke – of fame – and Jack Rogers.
Additionally, users cannot display photos unless their faces are in it – another way in which it is priding itself on being safe for users.
“For someone who might be 20-years-old coming out, I don’t want a 45-year-old man to send me a picture of their d***.
He claims that these apps only further fuelled existing negative stereotypes and long-standing myths surrounding the gay dating scene.
“The stigma around gay dating is actually perpetuated by these apps…
Under the terms of the court agreement, this will change — though there's a vocal contingent of people online who don't believe it should.
“I have had a really struggling coming out session in the last 10 years, it has obviously been quite well-documented but I didn’t really know what I was doing and I struggled.
For me there was no platform for me to meet gay men,” he says.
It’s not responsible, it doesn’t feel like something be happening to a young community in 2017 and we are trying to break that,” Locke says firmly.
Rogers goes even further to say the existing apps can be “dehumanising” and “archaic” and that they do not feel safe or responsible while Locke brands them “slightly vulgar”.
