Hey guys--apologies for the duplicate message issue on our current app and website. A resolution is on the way! Unfortunately, our current code is no longer supported by Android or iOS, and we have been unable to correct this issue.

We are happy to announce that the forthcoming app is built on new, up-to-date code and will resolve the duplicate message issue. It will also allow us to introduce new messaging features that users have been requesting: sending videos, emojis, GIFs, and saved phrases. Stay tuned for the launch of the new versions on May 27th!

As always, we are open to feedback and questions. Please message our Customer Service at support@daddyhunt.com

As we move towards the launch of our new website and app on May 27th, we want to update and educate you about some of the upcoming changes. One thing you will notice on the new app and website is the photo layout has changed from landscape to vertical. This change was required due to our implementation of more up-to-date technology.

We wanted to let you know about this important change, as it might require you to reload some of your photos for them to appear correctly in the new app and website.

In addition to the photo layout changes, both premium supporters and non-premium users will be able to have up to six (6) public profile photos on the new app/website. Premium supporters will be able to store up to twenty (20) photos in their private gallery and non-premium users will be able to store up to four (4) photos in their private gallery on the new app/website.

Fotofeed will no longer be supported in the new version of the app. It's being replaced with the option to import photos directly from Facebook or connect your Facebook feed in the first release of the new app/website, and will be followed in the second release with the option to link your Instagram feed directly to your profile.

Stay tuned for more updates about additional changes and new features that are coming in DHv3!

For questions, please contact our Customer Support at support@daddyhunt.com

The long wait is almost over! Daddyhunt 3.0 will be released on May 27th. We realize that our loyal users have been waiting for this major overhaul for quite a while especially since the current app and website are experiencing more glitches. So, thank you for your patience.

Between now and May 27th, we'll take the opportunity to educate you about the changes and new features that you'll see on the new app and website. Not only have we redesigned the user interface (what you see) but we've also implemented the latest technology on the backend and will be migrating to new servers.

Stay tuned for more details between now and May 27th, 2019.

Let's face it, data and facts can sometimes be fun. So, we are glad that someone took the time to compile lots and lots of data about penis size into one handy dandy map of the world.

After taking a look at each country and their corresponding measurements, perhaps, some of you are re-thinking your upcoming vacation plans? Let's all remember, however, that even within an average there's plenty of variation and surprises can lay in wait. That's assuming that size even matters to you, of course.

It should also be noted, that because of the various sources this study seems to come from, and the already problematic process of accurate penis measurement (do you measure from above or below), these charts, as always, should be taken somewhat lightly.

Still, it's fun to see how the world might measure up.

World travelers, does the map seem to back up your own personal data and experience(s)?

Gay culture, not unlike other cultures, is often perceived to be all about stereotypes. This is never truer than in any of the 'named' cultures (Bear, Leather, S&M, etc.). The ‘Daddy/hunter’ community is no different. As a Daddy who spends a lot of time, much too much time, I have to admit, online chatting, I get frustrated when I hear perfectly attractive hunters bemoaning the fact they can’t find a Daddy to date because they aren’t (insert stereotypical requirement here): young, slender, smooth, tall, athletic, etc.

Really, guys, Daddies don't all expect, require, or desire the same things. All you need to do is spend 5 minutes perusing the Daddyhunt profiles to see that, just like Daddies exist in all different shapes and sizes, Daddies have every different kind of taste and interest imaginable. You can find profiles of Daddies looking for girlie guys, masculine guys, tall guys, short guys, hairy guys, smooth guys, and on and on and on.

Some Daddies seem to prefer only younger, smoother, etc., but not all. Not every Daddy lives up to the presumed stereotype. Not all Daddies spend their entire lives chronically in search of some 'perfect' guy who meets some idealized, unrealistic standard. Okay, I admit, Daddies do tend to prefer that the guys they desire find older guys appealing, but then, who of us doesn’t want to be thought of as sexy? I know THIS DADDY certainly does! Not all Daddies have some unreasonable expectation that any guy they pursue be both perfect and static (i.e. always looking young and hot, etc.).

We have been paying DaddyHunt customers for about eight months. After an absence of around four years we returned to DH, as the national app we’d previously been paying through the nose for, had proven an expensive waste of time.

As a committed, longtime male couple seeking a significant younger other, optimistically we became paying “supporters” of DaddyHunt.com, trusting in its advertising that there are young men in our country who are genuinely interested in a variety of older men.

This may indeed be the case. Even so, at the same time, we wondered whether other people had considered a sizeable number of young gay men (in any country) would be grateful to DaddyHunt for legitimising their ambiguous search for security; just as many older men would be grateful for having validated their “right” to re-connect with youth? All this begged the question where does reality end, and fantasy begin? After all, isn’t the idea of a successful younger and older union a patriarchal wet dream, proselytised by Hollywood over the past century?

In our view, if love is to exist between younger and older men, and be meaningful today, there needs to be a connection. In an age of disposable, disingenuous social media, this may be easier said than done. Which is to say the connection is not something facilitated by dashing-off five-word sentences in haste, messaged once a fortnight. And nor is it assured by either man singularly dedicating himself to produce what the media has insisted is a priceless, “marketable body”.

For inter-generational relationships to...

In our never-ending quest to understand how other people define the term Daddy, we bring you this interesting article "The fastest-growing 'sugar baby' UK universities revealed... but at what cost" https://sports.yahoo.com/half-million-uk-students-turning-sugar-daddy-we..., which takes a look at the "sugar baby" culture on UK campuses. All signs point to the economy and the ridiculous amount of debt college kids go off into the real world with as to why there's been an uptick in young people, in this case women, looking for generous older men, Sugar Daddies, willing to pay them for their time.

Sugar Daddies have been around for as long as anyone can remember, gay or straight, but since the advent of the internet, facilitating these arrangements has become easier than ever. We are sometimes asked if the Daddyhunt community is about connecting guys with Sugar Daddies. The answer is NO, and we make a point of proactively removing users seeking financial arrangements from the Daddyhunt community.

But what we are wondering is, given the placement of this article in the mainstream media, do you think it further perpetuates the most common association with the word Daddy, that it has to be a sugary arrangement? As a community that celebrates Daddies and their admirers, whether they be a pauper or a prince, we’re of the mindset that the stigma surrounding...

You'd think with the official start of Spring being just around the corner, motivation to get an exercise regime together might come naturally. The pressure starts to mount from all angles when shirtless fun is on the horizon. Whether you go to the gym to maintain a healthy lifestyle, vanity, or genuine enjoyment, it can get kind of stale at times. Recently, some of us on the Daddyhunt Team have been trying to be a bit more active outside of the gym, as in, building some "real world" strength that's actually applicable and, dare we say, fun! The gym plateau we all reach is commonplace, which is why a supplemental activity seems like the best chance of shaking things up. In an effort to give us all the "get up and go" we might need, we've gathered some potentially fun suggestions to keep things interesting.

Join an Intramural Gay Sports Group

What if playing sports with a group of guys could actually be fun? Not only are gay sports leagues a great way of keeping in shape and to a schedule, they're also a great way to make new friends (and who knows, even meet your future significant other).
Grab A Partner

Statistics show that having a workout partner in tow increases your chances of reaching your fitness goals. While actually making sure you each get to the gym is an obvious benefit, there's nothing like having a friend there to give you a spot and encouraging you to push yourself even further. You may also find that in trying to keep up with each other, developing a healthy dose of competition can...

We've all got 'em. Whether it's ear hair or baby talk, dealbreakers have become a necessary part of navigating the world of dating. But when should they come into play? Maybe you have friends that date with Seinfeldian levels of dealbreakers and run at the first sign of something they don't like. But everyone deserves a fair chance and even things that we think we have a hardline on can shift when you get to know someone. The question becomes: When you do have a hardline, and you're having a good time with someone, when is the right time to bring up potential roadblocks?

Honesty is great and severely needed in any stage of a relationship, but in many cases timing is key. By definition, a dealbreaker requires calling the whole thing off. But it's never really that simple. For instance, what if the supposed dealbreaker is something that can be tweaked, changed, or brought to their attention? We're not advocating trying to change someone, because in most cases you will fail, but what if communicating your position could make them rethink their behavior? In some cases, the relationship may be more important than what's breaking the deal. We ask all these questions because there are times when being confident and swift in the choices you make can you help you cut out some of the bullshit inherent to dating. It can also make us miss out on something truly life changing when we're quick to judge and decide (especially in the world of online dating). At the end of the day, which should win out?

It seems to boil down to...
