Today’s statistics say 70% of gay men and 47% of lesbians have dated someone they met online, and dating apps are becoming the norm for doing so. Seeking a same-sex relationship online is no different than searching through any other dating site to find your targeted niche. Same sex singles can benefit from the mainstream dating sites, such as Match or eHarmony, as both services cater to the same-sex community. However, LGBTQ singles need to understand what they hope to gain from their online journey in order to select the right dating site.
Here’s a list of the best LGBTQ friendly dating apps for singles.
Zoosk is exploding in popularity with LGBT singles, and it boasts one of the slickest apps on the market. Getting started is free and easy, as is finding like-minded singles in and around any zip code. No need to waste time on long surveys either: just a couple questions and the app will start working its magic for you.

2. Elite Singles
Elite Singles is a fantastic option for LGBT singles, especially those who value education and are a little older. More than 80% of its members have earned a bachelor’s, master’s, or doctorate degree (or some combo of the three), and more than 90% are aged 30 or over. For free, you can get the app, create a profile, and browse for and receive matches — among other things.

3. Adult Friend Finder
It’s known that Adult Friend Finder is a popular choice among straight singles, but it’s also a go-to for homosexual and bisexual singles. The site has more than 77 million members and sees more than 25.5 million visitors a month — a significant number of them being from the LGBT community. In addition to selecting the sexual orientation of your ideal match, you can also select your preferred location, age, and interests.

The world’s most famous dating site also happens to boast the most gay and lesbian users who are looking for serious dates and relationships. Its app is super intuitive and easy to use, and it’s truly refreshing to communicate with the mature, relationship-oriented singles you’ll find on Match.com.
