homophobia. Unfortunately, our website is currently unavailable in most European countries. Contact him at or visit. More specifically, how do you NOT get sucked into the unrealistic images of physical beauty that are apparently de rigeur for online success? "In our culture we have a tradition of identifying people through particular categories: straight, gay, or bi (and it is rare that we accept that men can be bisexual at all). Who cant relate to that? The message may be that you dont belong, so just go away and dont bother. I recommend you partake of these apps just as you do high-calorie desserts: enjoy them sparingly, with a big dose of humor. I hear clients complain that no one really wants to connect; but, if its really so hard to be your real, vulnerable and un-Photoshopped self on these apps, is that so surprising?

I've found that by being inclusive of men that may not typically identify as gay, some critics believe the app comes off homophobic. Our app currently requires that you connect through your Facebook, and this can be difficult for some people.
