He claims that these apps only further fuelled existing negative stereotypes and long-standing myths surrounding the gay dating scene.“The stigma around gay dating is actually perpetuated by these apps…“I have had a really struggling coming out session in the last 10 years, it has obviously been quite well-documented but I didn’t really know what I was doing and I struggled.For me there was no platform for me to meet gay men,” he says.will become one of four online publications in How About We’s new media network along with The Date Report — How About We’s existing “news” site for dating, love, and ‘singledom’.How About We has also created two new media properties for the network called Swimmingly and Famously, about couplehood and celebrities, respectively.The main distinguishing feature is the ‘Chappy scale’ which allows users to slide between ‘Mr Right’ to ‘Mr Right Now’ depending on whether they are looking for a relationship or something more casual.

Grindr, the most well-known existing app for gay men, and Tinder, where users can search for dates by gender, have long been associated with casual sex and hook-ups, although both apps have also been the foundation for many new millennial relationships.
Locke says that while he was coming out, the existing gay dating platforms left him “utterly terrified”.
Locke’s venture comes after a very public coming out after viewers of the reality television programme saw him date women including Topshop heiress Chloe Green and model Ashley James, come out as bisexual and then say he was a gay man last year.
Locke toldit is partly through his experiences of using dating apps to come to terms with his own sexuality which is why he co-founded Chappy.
Last year she praised the shared values between Bumble and Chappy saying: “Bumble has made great strides for women in the dating scene and we believe Chappy will do the same for gay men.” Locke echoed this praising Bumble’s responsible, feminist and quality values saying they have been incorporated into Chappy.
