A new dating app designed especially for gay people was launched in Australia last Saturday. Taimi claims to be different from other online applications of its kind. Here’s why.

Overcoming stereotypes

The market is oversaturated with one-night-stand driven dating apps. Developers of those usually have a false perception that all the gay men are looking just for a hook-up. Taimi challenges this myth maintaining an environment for trusting and meaningful connections. This app takes dating seriously and welcomes users who do the same. It provides them not only with a standard swiping process, but with a number of tools allowing to make a statement about their worldview:

  • Creating personalized interactive feed,
  • Sharing stories,
  • Creating and following thematic groups inside the app.

All this makes Taimi much more than just a place to find a casual one-nighter.

Creating community

With all these features, Taimi – dating app at its core – becomes also a social network. The app brings together people with common interests and issues. Thus, Taimi is a free-from-discrimination place where gay people feel safe and understood. It encourages efficient private communication providing users with various instruments, such as video calls and icebreakers, which pop up every time you match with someone.

There’s more

  • Safety Features. Taimi’s thorough verification process and 24/7 moderation eliminate attempts to create fake accounts. In addition, users can benefit from the Stealth Mode (only people you like can see you are online), and the Private Album (you can control access to your private photos).
  • Feature Requests. You can submit suggestions about new features you want on Taimi. Everyone is allowed to fill an application form with their own ideas. Proposals that collected the biggest amount of upvotes from other users are introduced into the app.
  • Taimi XL is an extended version of Taimi with extra features for its users, such as rollbacks (canceling hasty swipes), boosts (making you more visible while swiping) and much more. Keep in mind that it’s optional and anyone can use the app for free.

Download Taimi from the App Store and Google Play or head over to their Facebook and Instagram pages to get amongst it.
