What is a bear in gay dating? Bear is a gay slang term. It describes a hairier and/or heavy-set gay or bisexual man. A bear typically projects an image of rugged masculinity. Some bears present a very masculine, over-the-top image of a ruggedly masculine man.
Is there an app for gay Bears? GROWLr allows you to meet other Bears from around the world or around the corner. GROWLr is free, fast, reliable and easy to use. A Bear is a gay man who belongs to a very inclusive part of the gay community. Some are hairy, some are muscular, and some are heavy-set and some are none of those things.
Are Bears attractive? We concluded that Bears are intensely sexual. We speculate that Bears are viewed as less attractive than what is traditionally considered to be attractive. The partners they can attract may be limited and, in response to this limitation, they may be particularly attuned to seek out partners who will not reject them.
Does GROWLr cost money? Growlr is free to download, install, and use. Its basic set of features is available to free members including its communication module. The app is monetized with display ads. Users can upgrade to a Growlr Pro account and have those display ads removed.
