Manhunt dating application was created as a phone dating service back in 2001 which makes it one of the oldest gay apps to find a hookup. Of course, the website had to evolve and adapt to the modern world and the entire idea of the dating apps that we have nowadays and we must say, they did a great job.
We will cover how much Manhunt will cost you, who are the majority of users, and what they are looking for. Together with that we will take a closer look at the interface and see how easy it is to hook up with someone from the platform.
The platform has both, free and paid services and different accesses depending on your subscription plan. Yet, all the main functions are open to all users. What is different about the Manhunt and its subscription plan is that the app has auto-renewable memberships and non-renewable memberships. With the first you can save up to 20% of your money if we would compare. Note that the website does not send any type of notification before it is about to charge you again. So if you forgot to cancel your subscription and won’t use the platform — the chances to return money equals zero.
As a free member, you can create a profile, view other profiles, you can connect with 20 buddies, and you will get a chance to use unlimited conversations with all users. The history of your chat will be automatically deleted if it’s longer than 2 weeks old.
As was mentioned before, there are auto-renewable memberships and non-renewable memberships. Both of those are great and your choice should be depending on your preference. If you want to stay at the platform just for a one-time fun or find different casual partners but for some period time. The non-renewable membership will cost you only $1 more if you will go 1 week, and if you’ve decided to go for a 12 months auto-renewable plan — you will get a chance to save up around 20%.
The paid service will get you to view all photos of all users in a full-size, access old-school chat rooms, get 1000 buddies at once, block users, and advanced search options.
Manhunt has over 6 million users and around 30,000 daily logins around the world. Around 80% of those active users are looking for casual hookups. So if you are looking for a more serious relationship, you would need to either get your patience or find another platform for your search preferences.
There are almost no transgender people here, the site is not suitable for tranny hookup.
Obviously, the majority of the website are gay guys and bi-curious, but you also can find queer, bi-sexual, and other parts of the GBTQ+ community. The age very differs because platforms exist for so long. Although, we could detect that the majority is in their 30s’ after there are people who are in their 20s’ but not so much, probably, because there are way too many other dating apps. Closing this circle, people in their 40s’ and older.
Fakes and scammers
We would not say that the platform has a lot of fake profiles but there are a lot of old profiles that are basically dead for a very long time now. Yet with more than 6 million users worldwide, the chance of scammers is out there. We would suggest not to share your personal information with strangers.
Since the website was first launched back at the beginning of the 2000s’ it has definitely upgraded and changed. The main page looks neat, designed simply yet tasteful, and straight to the point.
The registration process is super quick and effortless. On the main page, you need to place your name as a member at the website, password, email address, and your age. Asure that you are over 18 years old by clicking in the check below and hit Join to go further. There is no need to verify your email which is not very secure, but if you won’t go through your email verification you simply won’t have a chance to message anyone. In the end of your signing up, you would need to add one of your photos as a profile pic. Don’t worry, you can change it later on.
Continuing the photo topic, you would be able to upload up to 16 photos. We found that most of those photos are quite nude and erotical. Besides, all users will be able to go through the pics if you won’t make them private.
All profiles are also quite detailed which makes it so easy to get a “fist online impression” of your potential date. On your end, you would need to add information about yourself, your physical characteristics, and your sexual preferences if you want to share those. All can be changed and edited anytime you want.
Since the casual relationship is the most common search at the Manhunt app, it’s most popular search option is “in your area.” That will connect you with available people who are nearby which increases the chance of meeting face to face after chatting at the platform. Usually, you would get a long list of users and you can add more advanced search filters. Those are available for members with a paid subscription plan.
In that search tab filters, you can specify if you are looking for a one-time fling or something more serious or just like-minded people to see how that will go afterward. Then you can add the preferred age and even a radius. In case you are willing to move only for a mile or two — there is such an option.
Messaging is free to use for all members. Yet there is a difference if you are using the free version of the website or you have a Premium plan. As a free user you can send messages to other users but only up to 10 messages to each user and 50 conversations per day so if after 10 messages it won’t go anywhere — your loss and to continue you would need to upgrade your subscription plan.
As a Premium member you can have unlimited conversations with other users. Up to 1000 people at once. There are also chat rooms where you can find new people.
The mobile applications are free to download for iOS and Android users. The app is fairly nice and has all the same features as the desktop version. Although, we heard that there are often issues with push-notifications.
Security and privacy
The email verification is not important at first, but in order to connect with other members and be able to fill in your profile — you would need to validate your email. There are no more limitations from scammers rather than a suggestion not to share your personal information with strangers.
What they do provide is separate profiles that are operated by health organizations that will help you to get more knowledge about possible STDs and main symptoms.
The platform has a lot of users all over the world and most of those users are looking for all kinds of relationships. The majority are looking for casual flings but there are also a few of those who are also open for more serious relationships. The chances to meet someone in real life after connecting through ManHunt is quite high just be sure to meet in a public place. Also, that you are on the same page relationship-wise.
There is no matching algorithm whatsoever but you would have access to the advanced search filters once you upgrade your plan to Premium. You would be able to connect with people who are super close to you and have mutual interests. For that, you would need to fill in all the possible search filters on the website to get the most accurate matches.
Overall, Manhunt is a good app with a long history and good reputation. It is easy to create a profile and get in touch with 6 other million users who are quite active and are looking for casual relationships and simple friendship.
If you ever tried ManHunt we would love to know more about your personal experience. So don’t hesitate and share your experience below in the comments.
Pure is for real meetings, not endless chats online
Pure users have only an hour to chat before their profiles disappear. In one hour, you send a casual sex request to potential matches near your location, discuss your desires, and share contact detail to set up an offline date. If you want to repeat the search and find other matches, you have to create a new profile. No worries, it takes a minute.
Do I need to provide my social media links to become a registered member at Manhunt?
No, to create an account you would need to provide your valid email address and verify it to be able to send messages to other users. Manhunt won’t ask you to provide any personal social media links.
Can I find someone for a serious relationship at Manhunt?
There is a chance but it is quite a small chance as nearly 80% of users are looking for something casual than a serious relationship. But all users can specify that information in their profile and as Premium members you can add this filter to your search.
