Several guys that I have met off of there have actually turned into really great friends and you can use the site for more ways than one.
They have great features from promoting your own business (I used to do it with my Examiner profile), and a variety of men with mainly the background of why Scruff is called Scruff.
Some gay men use these apps out of boredom, chatting endlessly with no intention of meeting, while others are horny and benefit from the promise of a convenient hookup.
There are actually men who use the apps out of a desire for connection with another person.
Worldwide, a typical Grindr user spends approximately two hours a day on the app.
That’s more time than we spend eating, and more time than most of us spend exercising.
With so many options and the convenience of the apps, one might assume that we are more likely to assuage our loneliness than we could without them. Excessive use can do as much good for our mental state as devouring two extra-large Mc Donald’s fries at in the morning can do for our physical health.
In much the same way that fast foods offer quick, easy satiety or comfort but can damage the body via refined sugars, sodium, and cholesterol, hookup apps offer quick connection but can damage the psyche — and the body. According to a study published in 2006 in , 53.4 percent of Americans have no close friends or confidants outside of their immediate family, which is troubling as it’s up 17 percent since 1985.
Most noticeably, Scruff introduced a range of features both to forge a community of HIV-positive men and to encourage members to glide across the viral divide.I have discussed in past articles why Scruff on a man is really essential in the first place.Yet there is an app for all smart phones and i Pad’s that exist as well and has the same name.Unlike other sites, Scruff accepts everyone on there.You can really get to know a person based on the description of your profile, and even though some are vague, some really happen to be interesting and thought provoking.For a couple of years now, Scruff has become the go to app for gay men to meet each other, be it for friendship, dating or the casual hook up and it’s popularity rivals and sometimes beats the original gay icon app, Grindr. To me personally, it is a very minimized version of what you can get out of a gay app. Also, from what it seems the aesthetic seems to be one note as well, but that is just from my viewpoint.
