Many single gay natives and foreigners in Korea have, or have had these dating apps on their phones, largely due to the fact that natural encounters with other gay men and women in Seoul are quite seldom. Some people may find these applications promiscuous or distasteful, but in general, users will be able to find whatever they are looking for. Sure, active users may receive countless messages asking for sexual endeavors, but if they are opposed to these types of interactions, they have the option of ignoring or blocking them on the app. Users also have the ability to see how close others users are via GPS features. Tips for using these applications are to be truthful with the information you choose to disclose, be honest about what you are looking for, and be careful with the personal pictures you choose to share with others. Because these applications are all free of charge, it is recommended to try all of them and see how they complement what you are looking for.

For a long time, I thought that coming out would open doors to a place where I could be open about my identity without judgement. As gay men, we all go through an emotional journey to discover a sense of self; to allow ourselves to be vulnerable enough to come out and let our lives fall into place.
