Help & Support
Gaystryst is a relatively new entry in the gay online dating world. It is a very simple online dating platform in its design and navigation. As the name puts it, the site’s main focus is helping gay men find other likeminded males for fun, casual hook-ups, as well as long term romantic relationships.

Registration Process

Registering with Gaystryst is a quick and easy process, and it is free of charge. To register, you only need to provide your date of birth, an email address, and your post code.
After this, you are prompted to share some minor information about yourself, including ethnic origin, your sexual preferences, what ages you are looking for, and geographical locations that they should search for matches, i.e. close to your own location or farther away.
Next, it is a matter of uploading an image (you can skip this, but you won’t get many matches without it) and then you are fully registered!

Plans & Pricing

While you can use this online dating site for free, you will get far more views with a premium membership. Gaystryst comes with a full membership that has 4 pricing options. These include:
3 Days for £4.24
1 Month for £41.41
3 Months for £89.97
6 Months £119.92

They also run special deals such as 30% off premium memberships!


Special Features

The site features typical features like live chat, messaging, winks, and you can also add any potential matches to a friend’s list. There are also various public chat rooms that you can enter, and a comprehensive search tool to get better results.
The “Like Gallery” works similar to Tinder, where you are given quick matches with other profiles that you can like to save or just move on to another. Any liked profiles are saved and can be viewed at a later date.
You can also check profile activity. This lets you see how many messages, views, winks, and requests your profile has received.
However, most of the special features available require a premium membership. For instance, you can only sense five messages per day and only one per profile.
A full membership does grant access to a host of additional features, like unlimited messages, viewing all photos and in full size, sending “flirtcasts” (which is a premium messaging feature), and perhaps most important, being able to check full profiles.


Support and Safety

Support is relatively straight-forward and can be found via the help centre tab at the bottom of your profile. It features FAQs regarding almost everything, from dating tips to guides for using all the features.
They also provide tips for safe dating and advice for dealing with technical issues on the site, so the support and safety features are very decent.

The Final Word

Gaystryst offers a great website to test the waters of gay online dating. While it lacks in some areas compared to similarly-priced gay dating websites, it does offer plenty of good basic features that are ideal for trying online dating without needing to pay.
It’s not really recommended for anyone looking for romance or something serious, as users tend to be in their 20s or 30s, and looking for casual fun.
