BiggerCity is a gay dating site, so, as you’d expect, the members are all gay or bisexual men. Of these members, most are white males from America who are aged around 35-50. There are many members from across the world, including a lot of men from the United Kingdom. BiggerCity is based on its members being overweight. However, you don’t need to be big to join, as many slimmer men just like to date larger men.
According to the dating site itself, around 28% of members are slim and looking for larger men (chasers), while 19% identify as bears and 33% as chubs. Due to the kink nature of the website, most of the men who join BiggerCity are looking predominately for a casual relationship. However, it’s not unheard of for men to meet and then go on to have a serious relationship.
Getting signed up to BiggerCity is a fast and simple process for guys looking to register. Indeed, it should only take you 5 minutes at the most before you’re ready to start searching and chatting to other men. Firstly, you will need to be 18 or over to register. This is due to the very graphic content that is often displayed on this dating site. However, there aren’t any true safeguards to prevent underage or even spam profiles, as all you need is a verified email and a captcha test to get registered. One annoying thing is that unlike many other dating sites, BiggerCity doesn’t allow you to log into using a social media profile such or Facebook or even via your Google account. Once you’ve got your email sorted, you’ll then have a few profile questions to complete. This will include your physique tag, as well as your preferences and age.
BiggerCity Search tools
As far as dating sites go, BiggerCity has a great search function, making it easy for members – who are known as citizens on the site – to find other men that they are physically attracted to. For one, as the site looks for members to tag themselves as chub, chub chaser, chub4chub, or bear, you can search based on these tags, depending on your taste. As well as this, you can search by username, location, active statues, and physical features (such as body hair, height, eye colors, build, and hair color).
BiggerCity Making contact
Sending messages to other men on BiggerCity is simple, especially if you find someone you like through the search function. Free members can send messages, so you won’t need to wait for others to send you a message first. This is good, as the members on BiggerCity are notoriously bad for not wanting to send over messages first so, if you are comfortable messaging first, you’ll find dating on BiggerCity very easy. As well as the search function, you can also get introduced to other men through the site’s matchmaking service. This feature will match singles based on their lifestyle, education, interests, and career.
While the BiggerCity app is available as an app on both Android and iOS for free, it should be noted that this is a very basic version of the dating site compared with what you get on your browser. Which is why you won’t find that many members on the Online Now section of the app. However, you will find that app users are more likely to respond quickly to messages, as there are fewer people to chat with. One good thing about the app is that, to browse through profiles, you’ll see a photo grid where you can click on the photos of the men you find attractive.
BiggerCity Special Features
BiggerCity isn’t just a dating site. It’s also marketed as being a community for those who are interested in chub kink. This means, as well as finding dates. You’re just as likely to meet friends with similar interests to yourself.
