What is the purpose of OutPersonals?

The purpose of the OutPersonals site is to make it as easy as possible for you to meet people of the same sex, using the power of the internet. But more than just a gay personals site, OutPersonals offers advice lines, a relationship magazine, and an image gallery. At OutPersonals, you'll find a community of people using the site as a tool to make connections and find partners for dating, romance, friendship, and a variety of encounters. To find your match, we offer several powerful features, which allow you to narrow your search so that you are able to find exactly the kind of person you're looking for. From time to time we also add new features to make your experience with OutPersonals successful and fun.

Is OutPersonals really free?

Yes. Anyone who signs up gets instant access to OutPersonals's network tools, search engines, email functions, interest groups, and more!

How do I know if the members on this site are not fake?

OutPersonals only requires a valid email address in order to become a member of this site, as you will not be able to obtain your password without one. This means that should any member of the site be found guilty of abuse or harassing other members, we will have a lead in finding the person who is causing the problems; with the help of that member's ISP (Internet Service Provider), we can hopefully trace that person. Needless to say, such people will be permanently banned from membership on this site. However, our service is otherwise confidential. There is no way that we can do extensive background checks on members, and we expect you to understand that we cannot take responsibility for any pain, damage or suffering arising from your use of this site. Please use your common sense and be careful about giving out personal information to people you meet on this site.

If you feel that a member is using OutPersonals for abusive or fraudulent purposes that are not in adherence with our Terms of Use, please email our Abuse Team their username so that we may investigate.

What is the difference between entering as a guest and entering as a member?

OutPersonals works on a membership system so that we are able to keep data files that contain your profile information and other information such as your "Hotlist", etc. Guests may enter the site and browse the listings, but in order to post a listing and use the many features available on the site, you must become a member.

I'm not getting my password or other emails from OutPersonals!
