If you're looking for Mr Right, or even Mr Half-Right, the internet is a wonderful tool. And a brand new website called GayMatches UK has just gone live aimed at helping you find not only a perfect match but also new friends and contacts from their worldwide database of gay men.
GayMatches UK prides itself as one of the only dating sites to take user satisfaction seriously. “No Pop-Up Windows, No Spam, and no juvenile B.S. posts,” says site founder Benji Kurtz. “We think there are enough websites out there which virtually assault you with pop-up windows and violate your privacy by selling your personal information. What we’ve done is taken the best model for a matchmaking site, and got rid of the annoyances of our competitors.” Find Your Match Here
New additions to the GayMatches UK database are always displayed first when you log on to the site.


And the best part of the site? “Free membership – plain and simple.” says Benji. “None of this ‘free-for-a-week’ stuff, no bait-and-hook tactics to force you to buy something you don’t want. Our basic membership is free, and it will stay that way. When you join, you write your quick bio, answer some questions for our other members to see, and upload up to 5 pictures of your own. You can even send us pictures in the mail if you don’t have them in digital form – all for free.”

“We do offer premium memberships for those who choose to try it out.” And what does a premium membership buy you? “The ability to send an outgoing message to any other member in the database who hasn’t contacted you first. You can receive and respond to members who seek you out as part of the free membership as long as you like. If you choose to actively seek others out on your own – it’s your decision. We don’t force you to commit to a long membership, and we won’t continue to charge your card month-to-month unless you ask us to. We just want to be an enabler – allowing people to find each other in an honest no-bull atmosphere!”


GayMatches UK is a sister site of the already highly successful American with one big difference. “All our members are in the UK, or looking for matches in the UK,” explains Benji Kurtz, “Although the ability still exists to search for and contact friends, penpals, or dates from our database of hundreds of thousands of members around the world, the default for users will be to search for those closest to them.”
