Grindr has always been known as a resource for attractive gay men to find casual hookups around town. But what about homosexuals who are looking for stable and long term relationships? New app Dinstinc.tt has this exact philosophy in mind, as the app aims to unite the LGBT community through a clean, social and fun way.
Instead of focusing the physical appearance of users, the app helps you find users who have the same interests and hobbies as you, such as hiking, travelling or partying. While there is a dating option for the app, the founder hopes to introduce LGBT dating in a tasteful and sophisticated way. Instead of just meeting up and hooking up, the app aims to create deep and meaningful connections between two users, which would serve as a foundation for a potential long term relationship.
While I admire the idea of creating a LGBT app “you can bring home to mom”, I personally believe that these two apps will mutually coexist instead of taking over the other. Everyone has different needs in life, so if someone is looking for a casual fling, they can go on Grindr to find their target. However, if they are looking for friendship or long term relationships, they can log onto Distinc.tt to find the latest trending hot spots and meet new people. Besides, it is better to have a diversity of dating apps for homosexuals to find what they want in a relationship!
