We’re unlike most dating websites and we’re certainly different from social networks like Facebook and Twitter. That’s because we are neither a “social network” nor a “dating website”. We’re a members’ club for gay men, with a wonderful blend of our online platform and fantastic events schedule. I thought I’d take a few moments to explain, in a bit more detail, how the dating and socialising side of The Omyx Club work.
Since we launched just three weeks ago today, we’ve been extremely fortunate to have been featured in a number of prominent business and news publications. Is4Profit, Startups, Growth Business, New Business and BDaily have all covered our launch and stories around The Omyx Club. We wanted to share them with you today. Have a look below!
I can remember coming out at the age of 16, I know I had it easy. There were laws on equality in place, the law on civil partnerships had been passed and in the media there were increasing numbers of LGBT role-models. It’s still terrifying though! Since then I’ve met people in a whole host of situations. Gay men who were married with children and decided they could no longer live in that way, older single gay men who hadn’t come out to friends and were living a double life, younger gay men who felt unable to sustain a relationship through fear that their parents may find out, the list goes on…
For better or for worse, technology has dramatically changed the way we socialise. I wanted to look at the benefits and drawbacks of technology on socialising, particularly given what I do as the CEO of The Omyx Club and our aim to bring like-minded gay men together.
