OutPersonals.com, like most gay online dating sites, seems to have an unfair advantage by being rather comprehensive. Somehow niche sites know that they need to be bigger, better and bolder to compete with their more generalized competitors. As again is so often the case with all specialized dating sites, this one is like joining a whole community, not just some place to look for a date or a hookup. Unlike other similar services, this one is targets gay men, bisexuals and transsexuals, but not lesbians. They require a three-month initial fee to start, so despite it being very affordable when compared to other dating sites where you only have to pay for your first month, the score for "cost" is really low and doesn't necessarily reflect the actual monthly price. Here's what else we found...
Out Personals let’s me see a few detailed profiles free, but then I have to pay to see more. It's a bit of a lame tease, but if you write a great profile, they may reward your popular posting with free access benefits. That's at least some incentive for people to take the time fill in the little details. When it comes to contact options, you can always send a “wink” or add someone to your hot list. Either way, the member will receive an e-mail stating that you’re interested. It’s important to note that paid subscribers can pay extra to have their profiles accessible to every level of membership, including free users.
"...I must mention some of the content I read was more passionate than romantic..."
Chat rooms on OutPersonals are free to everyone. Premium subscribers have the added benefit of being able to expand their fellow chatters’ profile details. Members can also open their own private and exclusive conversations with select members. As an added bonus, any visitor who is feeling like showing off a bit can broadcast his webcam to the entire chat room. You can even use the site’s instant messaging program for added one-on-one action.
There is lots of stimulating reading material, too. You can read message boards or subscriber-submitted articles in the site magazine. Now, I know you may be looking for romance, but I must mention some of the content I read was more passionate than romantic in nature—but until the man of your dreams comes along, why not enjoy a little steamy dish until you catch that ideal fish.
“My network” is a place to keep track of online contacts, post bulletins and share photo albums. If a friend likes he can add a testimonial to your profile naming your finer points, or meatier attributes. Now besides meeting the perfect match, you’re sure to make many new friends and Out Personals “my network” feature is a great way to keep track of them all.
Signing up to premium membership let’s you communicate with all other members, grants special search abilities, personalized lists of potential matches, subscriber video access, puts you at the top of search results and customer service queues. Out personals expects you to pay for a minimum of three months in advance, which is a ding of $33.96 for silver membership. You pay $12.96 per month after your three months are up, so it's a great price, but the three month initial membership is a little shady from where we stand. Visit Out Personals to get your face out there and to be noticed fast!
