A New Year; A New Name!
#DaddyDating can be tons of fun and super exciting, especially when you meet a new guy who makes your heart skip a few beats every time you get an in-box notification. It’s easy to get distracted when romance is in the air, but don’t forget to keep yourself safe when hooking up. The Anti-Violence Project’s goal is to help end all forms of violence against gay and HIV-affected community members.
So… what kind of precautions do you take when meeting a new guy?
Here’s some valuable tips from the AVP website:
Use your tech
Text yourself or friends about where you'll be and who you’re with. Include the username your date uses, and a picture of the person if possible. Save messages when using websites and apps.
Meet in public
Meeting in public allows for greater options for safety. If possible bring friends with you, as they can watch your back and give you their impressions.
Question dishonest behavior
If the person doesn't look like the picture they sent you, ask them about it. If they don't have an answer you feel comfortable with, leave.
Know your limits
If you're going to use substances, including alcohol, consider deciding ahead of time when and how much you will use. Never leave your drink or belongings unattended.
Trust your instincts
If you feel threatened or unsafe at...
What sorts of comments might intergenerational couples get from other people, and how should they respond?
Gold Digger, obviously. It’s easy to assume that younger guys who date older guys are looking for cash. I’m not saying a big bank account isn’t a plus for some younger guys, but most of the guys on Daddyhunt are genuinely attracted to older men and the things that an older man has to offer, in and out of the bedroom.
Judgment. People can be very judgmental. No — scratch that — they can be evil, vindictive, jealous bitches. That being said, if you and your older/younger partner have love and respect for each other, the people who genuinely care about you will see that. You can’t worry about everyone else.
It can be very painful not to be ‘seen’ for who you are or to be dismissed by other people’s narrow-mindedness. But put that pain and anger into becoming the best boyfriend or partner you can be and taking as much joy, love, growth (and sex) as you can from the experience. One of the central tenets of the gay rights movement is that it doesn’t matter who you love, but how you love them. I think that applies to anyone who goes against the grain, including people brave enough to enter into intergenerational relationships.
Luckily, our society and culture is beginning to get more comfortable with the idea of couples of different ages and as more and more do it publically (Tom Ford, Calvin Klein, Dustin Lance Black…) they will continue to achieve more mainstream acceptance. Relationships between...

Matt Baume asked relationship expert and Daddyhunt/MISTER CEO Carl Sandler, "What are the top do's and don'ts for young guys seeking a Daddy?"
… Be straight-forward.
Tell Daddy up front it you are just looking for him to nibble on your tender drumstick. If, instead, you are looking for dinner and a marriage proposal, then let him know. Daddies have enough experience to roll with either option. Just don’t play around with their hearts.
Games are for kids — and believe me, Chicken Little, your Daddy has not only played them all, he’s donated them to Goodwill. So if you say you want to hang out on Saturday night, then make a reservation, plan ahead and for God’s sake, be on time. Don’t ignore Daddy’s calls and drunk text him at 11 pm, expecting him to be excited you reached out. Follow through is the key to Daddy’s love.
… Know where to hunt.
If you are looking for a strong, secure, MAN, you won’t find him at some appletini-filled, neon, low-tea party. No, Daddy is sipping whisky in a leather armchair, smoking a Cuban cigar and roasting a duck over a fire pit. If you want a Daddy, go where the Daddies roam freely; Daddyhunt.
… Assume youth gives you the upper hand.
Sure, Daddies crave chicken but they also know the value of a well-cooked piece of steak. You both have gifts to offer each other so make sure mutual respect is the only currency trading hands.
… Get mad if he doesn't want...
Got a hot guy you want to keep track of? The all new Daddyhunt App lets you easily ‘follow’ guys (from nearby or anywhere in the world!) and you’ll get updates whenever the men you follow post new photos. In this way Daddyhunt functions similarly to Instagram, but of course Daddyhunt is a whole lot sexier.
Just click the big red button! Every member profile has a ‘follow’ button located just above their profile bio. Click the button to ‘follow’ them, and click it again later to ‘unfollow’ them if you no longer want to keep track of their updates.
The Daddyhunt App is the best way to stay updated and connected with all the special Daddies and Daddy lovers waiting to meet you.

Remember when you were in grade school and had to make a Valentine for every member of your class out of construction paper? Or if you're on the Hunter side of things, maybe you had some store bought Ninja Turtle Valentine's to give away (shell puns and all). Either way, what a treat it was to receive a Valentine from someone. Personally, I prefer the old school method of cutting out hearts and creating a Valentine from scratch. The point is whether your single, single-ish, dating, or married today is a day to share some love. Sure, it's a commercialized holiday and love should be shared everyday, but all too often we find ourselves too busy to stop and appreciate those around us (romantic or otherwise). So this weekend, let's all make it a point to send some love to a daddy you admire, a friend, a family member, or even a stranger.
Remember, Cupid has got a big load today and wants to shoot all over your chest (because that's where your heart is). So let today be the day that you message someone on Daddyhunt and see what happens. Who knows by this time next year, he could be your full-time Valentine.
Let us know in the comments below your very best Valentine's Day experience or gift.
Now get with the love sending and let us know what happens!
After months of anticipation, HBO’s new series “Looking” premiered this past Sunday. Reaction so far appears mixed at best, with gays either loving its “honest and realistic” portrayal of a group of twenty- and thirty- something, single gay men in San Francisco, or finding its merry band of rainbow boys and their “gay people problems” unrelatable, clichéd, and (perhaps worst of all for an HBO show) boring.
Show creators Andrew Haigh and Michael Lannan get some things right (more on that later), but just as many things wrong. Like, really wrong. Asking someone if they’re “drug- and disease-free” is, strictly Grindr-speak and unrealistic for an in-person conversation. I’m also sure all the hot, BART-riding Latino guys that have picked me up over the years knew not only how to pronounce the word “oncology” without difficulty but also knew what it meant. Cancer and oncologia are not just white-girl problems.
Minor quibbles, perhaps, for a half-hour comedy, but queens have gotten the boot from “RuPaul’s Drag Race” for far lesser offenses. That being said, “Looking” does get a few things right; namely, its honest depiction of the difficulties we have when it comes to finding our internal, moral, and sexual compasses as we make our way into adulthood.
All of us—homo and hetero alike—grow up under the influence of what society and our parents tell us, from the kind of sex we should have to the kind of relationships we should work toward. But for many gay men and women,...
Now that we've officially dubbed 2014 “The Year of the Daddy,” we hope you’re on your way to achieving the goals (don’t call them resolutions!) you’ve set for yourself to help make the next 365 days as daddylicious as they can be. Not that it’s going to be easy. Truth is, some of the biggest self-improvement promises we make to ourselves—eating better, getting in shape, building healthier relationships—are way easier said than done. But hang in there, guys, we’re gonna do our best to help you stay on track!
Okay, we can’t promise to snatch that donut out of your hand or make sure you get your butt to the gym three times a week, but if you need some advice on keeping your love life in tip-top shape, listen up! Better yet, listen to what MISTER CEO and our resident relationship expert, Carl Sandler, had to say about some of the unique challenges of daddy dating—including mismatched sex drives, uneven incomes, and dealing with disapproving family and friends—during his latest appearance on Sirius OutQ’s “The Morning Jolt with Larry Flick” radio show. Whether you’re determined to land yourself a dashing daddy, test the relationship waters with a strapping younger buck, or make your current daddy-son situation stronger in 2014, this is a must-listen.
