New dating app aims to connect ‘wealthy gay daddies’ with ‘healthy gay bears’

Hey bears, do you need some honey in your life?

DaddyBear is a new hookup, er, dating app that connects “wealthy gay daddies” with “healthy gay bears.”

That’s right, folks. The app, which just launched and already claims to be the “No.1 gay sugar daddy dating app,” (that’s quite a narrow category) was specifically designed with older gents in mind. Of course, in the gay world, “older” could mean anyone over the age of 35, so…

According to the app’s About page, daddies are “rich men who have more money and social wealth than you do.” Everyone should date a daddy because “most mature gay daddies grew up under the macro environment of AIDS epidemic and scare, so they know how to protect themselves and you, and enjoy safe sex with you.”

Um. OK.

“Our team has spent a long time studying people in gay support and discovering the factors that makes gay sugar daddies and gay bears truly compatible, which is the idea of creating DaddyBear,” the app’s marketing manager, a man by the name of Robert (apparently he has no surname), says in a press release.

“What we aim to provide for our customers is a private and safe community where they can enjoy a great time while looking and chatting with their potential dates.”

DaddyBear has all the features of your typical gay hookup app. You can browse profiles, you can chat, you can swap pics, you can arrange hookups, you know the drill.

“You will be happier and more secure in your role as a daddy-son than you ever was before,” the app claims, “because your gay daddy are kindly, typically, wisdom and are a real DADDY who can give you more support you never got from your father.”
