Folks, it’s time, to be honest. However sad it may sound but gay dating apps are used mainly for hookups. Even I, myself, am guilty of that. I grew up in a small town where there weren’t many options to meet other gays. The only way to meet other guys was a dating app.
The dating game just isn’t the same across the spectrum. Some people navigate gay dating apps like champs, but not all of them can pull their weight. These guys end up giving dating apps a reputation as a playground for flakes and bores. So, if you want to stand out from the crowd, you need to up your game and ensure that and you don’t turn up like tons of guys on apps that ask infuriating questions. Let’s take a closer look at the most annoying gay dating app questions that turn guys off right away.
This doesn’t sound like an annoying question. But, just imagine it coming from someone who already had a long “yawning” conversation with you on the app. You must have also across a person who starts each e new conversation with you, using this phrase. Guys, be aware – he doesn’t have Alzheimer’s, he is just acting like he forgot that he started it, even though he can clearly see everything that’s been written before.
If I was looking for a quick sex session, I would happily put it in my bio – “I am looking for instant hookup and I got a place for a quickie.” But, this question will annoy me or anyone who would like to know the other person a little bit better through a small (if not long) conversation.
I am sure nobody likes it when people ask a question that you blatantly have the answer to in your bio, or when a guy immediately asks for the place when there hasn’t even been any decent conversation.
Got D*ck/a*s pics?
This can annoy a decent guy, who isn’t looking forward to jumping in the bed. The absolute worst thing is when you feel like you’re getting along with someone over chat and they suddenly bring nude pictures into the conversation. Here, I am talking about my job or favorite hobbies and all of a sudden ‘there you go’.
What’s your WhatsApp no?
It annoys me (and should annoy anyone) when a guy just writes 10 questions in the name of conversation. Who likes getting interviewed on a gay dating app? It’s also not cool to see a long message first when you know the other person sends the same thing to everyone. It annoys me the most when ‘he’ starts a conversation like, ‘Can we chat on WhatsApp?’ And, the biggest dating app pet peeve is when someone stops chatting with you immediately after you say – “I would like to chat here first.”
What are your hobbies?
Most apps allow you to put your hobbies on your profile, which should be enough for others to decide who you find attractive. In spite of this, almost every user on the apps will admit to being asked this question, at least once.
Won’t the other person get to know that eventually? But some pals would like it if you to spell your likings out to them.
Top or Bottom?
If you had already put your sexual preference in the profile, why on earth would anyone ever ask you that? And NO, it is not at all ok to do that, especially when you the person you are talking to identify himself as ‘Versatile’ or ‘ open to experimenting’.
So, if somebody asks you this question, be sure the person on the other screen is not paying attention to your bio or asking to meet up without conversing first. Gay dating apps never promised to keep the creeps away. But, a question like this might ruin your entire experience of dating. Having said that, everyone’s not terrible, so keep at it.
