Gay dating or heterosexual meets; either way, there are a few key factors to be placed under the microscope before registering for online dating. The creation of hundreds if not thousands of gay dating sites creates a platform for creeps to engage in sinister activities. These sites are created to provide an intimate yet discreet dating medium, removing safety issues and found while barhopping. Our ManHunt review checked the site's pros and cons, based on safety, security, and realness of ads for users.

What Is ManHunt?

It is a cool place for men to find other men, whether for naughty banter or intimate dating. It was incepted in 2001, and it has a user count upwards of over one million in the USA alone. The site claims to bring together like-minded gay men for fun, but it falls short in its application usability and authenticity of ads. However, it does have a healthy male user base, with 80 percent of them seeking only casual dating.

This ManHunt dating site review found a site with basic features, most of which can be found on cheaper, free to use sites.

Safety - Pay or Stay Away?

There is no evidence of an SSL certificate on ManHunt; neither did our review show signs of dedicated profiles vetting. As far as safe gay dating goes, there is a handy health section within the website, but it seems users are left to browse at their peril.

Our Experience on

Sing up Process

The steps to signing up on ManHunt are quick and painless, perhaps too easy for safety purposes. There is no email verification carried out during registration. However, it is a requirement if you need to engage in messaging.

Profile – Creation and Visuals

To set up a profile, you only need one photo as your profile pic. It seems some photos may be copied from other sites, albeit the profiles are well detailed. Up to sixteen photos are allowed on profiles, which leads to plenty of lewd pics and somewhat fake profiles. On photo quality, the site boasts good quality pics, real or not.

Searching on ManHunt

For starters, the app needs serious work, with ads cluttering your results page instead of gay men nearby. This dating app only allows messaging, so you can't perform a search while on-the-go. Advanced searching on ManHunt is available solely to paying members, but it is still difficult to find gay men nearby.
contacting on manhunt


ManHunt users can send unlimited messages, use instant messaging, and also access video chatting services. Free members are limited to communicating with a maximum of 50 users daily or use the app, which only caters to mobile dating. The quickness of responses upon our review created suspicion that there may be a prevalence of fake profiles.

Review Conclusion

After joining this site, I was quite disappointed with the app, though the profiles seemed captivating. It didn't take long to realize I was being duped into signing up, as fake profiles seduce you into upgrading. It's an okay dating site if you simply want to browse pics, but you can do that freely on any search engine.
