Gone through all of Grindr? In a tiff with Tinder?
You can take your search for Mr. Right (or Mr. Right Now) to Chappy, a gay dating app whose goal is to bring decorum back to the dating world. Launched in early 2017, the app aims to help men meet their next beau in a safe and respectful environment.
Some of the features Chappy uses to help keep it a polite place to peruse potential partners include:
- A policy of no faceless photos. What you see is what you get.
- Users get notified if their conversations are screen-captured. This protects your privacy.
- New users must sign a pledge to respect their fellow members. No more ghosting, insults, or racist comments.
The app also puts limitations on the kinds of material users are allowed to share: no pornographic or obscene media; no personal information (last names, e-mails, phone numbers, etc).
Already the third most downloaded gay dating app in the US and UK, Chappy is poised to make a name for itself as a more genteel option to the anything-goes atmosphere of the alternatives.
You can download Chappy for both Apple and Android. chappyapp.com
