Was once a great app, but now a scam
by MGC268 on 2020/10/20 16:15
Ah man, I really don’t take pleasure in writing something like this, actually I do. Let’s start with the positive. The app is well designed. Have to give it credit where it is due. Easy to use. Set up a profile and all that. So that’s where the positives end. I don’t believe anyone real uses this app anymore. It has been taken over by bots and scammers. You have the classic type of saying he is in the military and shipping off. Then the type that can’t speak English but asks for your email or number. Then we have the clever type which really tries to warm you up. Then masks their own number trying to blackmail you. Ofc all of these scammers are easily avoidable and you can block them. But like an army, they keep coming. I am starting to believe the developer isn’t even trying at this point. I get the same response that I should just report and block them. Also apparently they are trying really hard to stop them. Well clearly nothing has worked as there are more scammers than ever. This app is unusable at this point Also I met only one real person from it. That will give you an idea. Another thing I noticed is that even the real users aren’t even online. It says they are online and then they never see a text I sent them. At this point the app should be shut down and redone. Because it’s a dead husk now. To the devs that read this. Look you need to make sure everyone verify their account before even setting up a profile. Because even scammers can beat the Bot test. Please and thank you But I will say with confidence that I will never download and use this app again. No matter how many free months of premium I get. Bye Surge!

I just downloaded the app, and already I am seeing so many friendly faces. People on this app seem more genuinely focused on a relationship, rather than just intimate encounters like you see with so many other dating apps.

I just recently downloaded the app and was happy to see I was quickly getting responses from others near me. I also got a message from a staff member asking if I needed any help and offering to help get me set up. It’s nice to see such a friendly, personal response in this day and time of “email only support with a response in 72 hours”... Like I said, I’m still new, but I’m impressed so far!!

I love that the admins on this app are super nice and responsive. However, there were only a few guys in my area and I live in a major city. The few guys that I matched with either didn’t log in often or were fake/catfish accounts. Other than that, the app has a nice user interface, very easy to use, and I haven’t experienced any technical issues.

Sleek/Easy Interface, Lots of Potential
by Regence_Royale on 2018/07/21 08:43
I do like the interface of Surge, it’s easy to use, friendly to trans and non-binary genders, and it’s basically an all gay app like how can you not love that? My only complaints lie in how people out of your set distance and age range can like you but if you don’t increase your range, then you’ll never be able to match with them + this is probably just due to a lack of users, but for my set parameters and in my area, I ran out of swipes super fast and have only gotten one or two new cards per day, if that. Had it not been for an admin granting me a free one month trial, I wouldn’t have even known that these people were way outside of the parameters I set. For instance, I’m looking for 18-23 guys, yet I’m getting a ton of 30-50+ guys ultimately don’t mind when it comes to making friends, it makes scoring a lasting relationship very hard when little to no one comes close to what you’re looking for, both within and especially outside of the things I’ve set. If the app can improve on that and hopefully grow and see more new users, I’d happily give you guys that last star. - Christopher Update July 21, 2018: I found that expanding distance really does help, but I guess there’s just not a lot of people around my area to begin with. Hardly the developer’s faults though! I’m happily giving that last star for the great user service and the general usage of the app.
In a week I was approached by at least 4 scammers
by Guerrilladude on 2018/08/19 17:27
When the beautiful muscular men keep matching with you beware. They all seemed legit at first, numerous profile photos, sound charming. But then I started to notice repeating stories (how many contract building engineers are there?!); varying locations claimed as home with convoluted explanations; every one of these guys claimed to have been in, or currently serving, in armed forces; continually changing reasons why they couldn’t meet in person; falling in love with me after texting for a couple hours; using broken English while claiming to have been born in the U.S. (and then using perfect English that was obviously cut and pasted). I’m over 50 and all these men were 35 or less, so it may be a scam focused on older men. Searched a couple of the phone numbers they were texting from and saw that they are scam phone numbers. I might also add that the developers of the app seem like they are involved in this scam as within one day of installing, they magically gifted me with a month of free service that allowed me to see all these hot guys “liking” me so it made it very simple match with them (without premium version you can’t see the profiles of who likes you). No matter what this app and many of the users are extremely shady - my advice DELETE now.
Great Dating App For Guys
by Ksong28 on 2020/04/18 06:52
This app is like one of my top favorites compared to other gay dating apps. It has a lot of different features if you do get the premium membership though and I think it’s worth the purchase because it’s way cheaper but still a little bit pricey though than other gay dating apps in the App Store. The things you can do with the premium membership is that you get unlimited likes of liking someone and even can go back to the history to see your likes and dislikes again if you do change your mind at a later time and you can change your liking or disliking after you liked or disliked them. Also you can power message them before matching them up for better matches. You can also upload unlimited photos and max of 3 private photos on your profile page. I highly recommend to definitely download the app and give it a try!!! 😉🤗💯 P.S. also be safe and careful on any dating because there are many scammers out there cause even when I’m careful...I still got scammed by someone pretty recently... So watch out guys!
Perfection for Gay Dating
by Ashyboyy69 on 2018/03/31 08:52
The little extra features are way more thought out and beneficial than Dating Apps like Tinder, Grindr, etc.. I’ve met chill guys, gentlemen (who are more wise than my 27 year old self) and great to get advice and guidance from. I’ve bet chill buddies that I have a lot in common with, and I’ve also met a few more serious potentials. The vibe isn’t dirty and slutty like Grindr and Scruff and these boys are super nice and not Pervy. I highly recommend it and the little extra per month for the Premium is completely worth it. I guarantee you that you will find a love interest in a week or two with no issue. Also the team member for San Diego named Martin is a total babe and super sweet. The only upsetting thing about the entire app is that I’m pretty sure he’s already taken. Total bummer but life happens. So stop reading anymore reviews and give it a shot. Seriously, what exactly do you have to lose? The answer is nothing, so good Surging to you Byeeeeeeeeeee
Swipe Right for Mr. Right(s)!
by The Band of Banjos on 2018/09/02 03:30
Super easy to use and fun to play with. Swipe right for guys you like, swipe left for guys outside of that catergory, and click the profile to extract more deets... seriously, it's easy as 1, 2, 3! I've used both regular and premium but I highly recommend investing in premium because it allows you to browse through your history and change from "no thanks" to "let's try this again." It also keeps a list of those who have liked you so that you can go in and play Mr. Destiny by liking them back immediately. Plus, you're presented with almost an unlimited number of guys so you're not restricted to a few within the surrounding area. This is a great app to browse through zillions of guys with the swipe of your finger, so put in a little effort and match up with the right guy(s) for you!
Great alternative to Tinder (for guys!)
by Lohansony on 2017/12/04 21:29
PSA: the more people who get and keep these apps, the better they will be. Living about an hour and a half from the nearest metropolitan area, it can be really hard to find guys. I’ve only had the app for a few days and while I haven’t met up with anyone on it yet, I’ve had more success than on other apps (hot or not, tinder, Grindr...) in that it doesn’t feel like the app wasn’t meant at all for you. This app ACTUALLY SHOWS YOU PEOPLE WHO ARE CLOSE TO YOUR AGE AND ARE NOT 500 MILES AWAY. As with any app of this category, if you want to find others like you, you HAVE to get and keep the app. A bigger user base means it will be less difficult to find someone near you who you might actually like! The app itself is easy to use (very similar to tinder or hot or not) and it allows you to have private photos you can grant or revoke access to on a user-by-user basis (however they keep removing mine......). Overall nice app. Modern and nice.
Con Artist Central
by BryGuy80 on 2018/11/06 21:28
This app is full of con-artist. They spend a day or two talking real sweet to you before they ask for money. In less than two weeks on this app 5 different people (profiles) contacted me. All said they were enlisted in the service and deployed at the moment. All also stated that they would be state side in 7-15 weeks and they couldn’t wait to meet. After a few more days of speaking almost all of them told me their parents were dead and they needed money collect their personal belongings. Requests spanned a request from $250-$800. Another requested $50 Google Play digital cards emailed to him. Now today one of them asked for my bank login information to make a deposit for me. I keep blocking them and reporting. I can only believe that the creators of this app have got to be in on this scam. It is just to prevailing for them to not be well aware of the issue or in on it. They even rewarded me with a free month for a good review. Right after that is when the cons began to come in like crazy. Time to delete this app and you should as well or just don’t waste the time and download.
has flaws and potential, give it a chance
by frankfarm on 2018/06/11 05:09
After using Surge for four weeks, the earlier one-star and low-star reviews are my experience as well—so many likely scammers. Only two guys I matched seemed likely legit. I’m tempted to delete the app, but to be fair it has potential and needs a critical mass of users in order to succeed, so I’m keeping it a while longer. We need more strong competitors in this app category in order to encourage all of them to improve and innovate. Usability tip: while swiping you can tap the photo once to show or hide profile details. That wasn’t clear to me for a while; it wasn’t obvious to me from the interface. My suggestions: (1) go thru the verified process (which took longer than I expected). Scammers are probably less likely to do so, so this helps others know you’re legit. (2) use the app for a few weeks before you review it and you’ll understand why its current 4.5-star rating is unwarranted.
Way Better Than Tinder
by Averiis on 2017/12/16 16:11
I shows you grayed our pictures of people you like you so depending on how hard you look and how good you are at comparing a gray image to a color image you figure it out. Also when do get a match and begin chatting the chat has a “seen” message once the person open the messages and sees it so you can pretty much tell if they are ignoring you or just haven’t opened the message. Unlike tinder where you are stuck in limbo wondering. The one thing I don’t like is if you send pics via chat you can only look at them once but I understand why so I don’t mind it all that much. I do like that if you choose to you can add private photos if that’s the kind of thing you are into and since it’s geared towards gay men there isn’t much you have to to set your parameters.
Best Gay Dating App Around
by Ascvbng on 2018/06/03 08:41
Like Tinder but better: This gay dating app for men has tons of cool features with premium service including setting a location to search for guys, finding out people who like your profile, and setting what you are looking for in your profile, whether it’s a casual hookup or something more long term. I’ve already met some great guys on this app and really appreciate it’s easy to use interface... only thing I’d like to see changed is being able to have more space for a bio, perhaps adding more questions so you get a bigger feel for the guy you are looking at. OkCupid does this well, so I’d look to them for an example. Regardless, this is definitely one of the BEST gay dating apps for men I’ve discovered thus far. Looking forward to finding my Mr. Right sometime soon ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
Great App
by {Mick} on 2017/11/01 17:59
So I am using three different apps currently. All of them have positive and negative features. So far this app has proven to be the best between the three. I have met really interesting people and all of them have been very honest and upfront with me regarding their wants and desires. In addition, I have been approached by the admin and was able to address some issues with the app. I am hopeful they will fix the one issue I have related to removing photos of individuals you have decided you “don’t like”. The other, not being able to upload locked pics, they let me know is an Apple and Google Play issue and that they are working at trying to resolve this issue. I happily rate this app as a 5 Star app. Btw, I did sign up for the premium membership and was happy with it.
Good App
by Jamazing100 on 2018/02/23 08:28
Surge is great. Do know you need to pay to really get the best of it, but once you’re in - you’re in! Profile setup is easy, local search is easy, and it’s easy to get filter people you’ve liked, disliked, matched, power-liked, etc. There are also filters for types of members as well - the only one I use being the ‘profile verified’ so I can peruse others with complete profiles - they are so easy to set up ~ don’t bother wasting your time with someone who doesn’t have one. Only been using it about a week, but it’s pretty nice. Got several chats going - and even if none of them look like they are going anywhere yet, it’s still super early and I’m only looking in a small radius. I’m sure in bigger cities there are lots of options :)
AVOID
by Louvre2019 on 2018/04/14 19:52
I first got on this app awhile ago and thought it was very well done. However the reason why I am giving it a 1 Star is majority of the profiles on this app are men claiming to be overseas for the military but in fact they are men living in foreign countries that barely speak English and want bank information or money. I even had accounts ask me for my social security number on this app. I’ve tried reporting these profiles but it doesn’t seem to go anywhere. I wouldn’t recommend this app to anyone cause you will risk loosing your money and identify on this app. I’m nervous that these fake profiles pose as these handsome men and concerned that they may have just screenshot someone’s photos from online or another dating site. I would suggest to the app developers to add a security feature on the app to where people have to send a photo copying a pose before they can set up an account. Until then, I’m getting off this app and going to find something more secure and trustworthy. Please do not download this app.
Fair progress for gay online dating
by download_addict_17 on 2017/10/01 06:36
I started using Surge a few days ago and there are a number of things to appreciate about the app. First, like a lot of other apps, it allows you to connect it with your current location so that you can see available men nearby. Second, I appreciate the app asking what I'm looking for - relationship, hookup, friends, etc. - and takes that into account (at least, I'm assuming it does). Third, the premium option allows you to see who's liked you so that you can like them back and begin chatting. Fourth, Surge let's you post private photos that can only be viewed by your matches after they ask permission. It's a very clean and well organized app. It's not as shady as Tinder, and not nearly as murky as Grindr. With another update or two, Surge could very well be the official Gay Bumble.
Don’t waste your time or money
by charlarog on 2018/10/09 03:38
This app is full of catfish and spammers, as many are. The difference is that the admins don’t care. Want to block somebody? You can try. But the admins have to approve the block. Otherwise, the user just stays unblocked. I’ve been getting harassed by one user in particular for six months. He always uses the same name, and it is always pictures of the same guy. I’ve blocked him close to a hundred times, and it keeps unblocking him. These people are content to take your money and ignore you forever. There is no “customer service” from them. I’ve contacted them repeatedly, and they always make the same excuse “we are working on it constantly”. Half a dozen updates later, and they have still done nothing, because they don’t care. Edit: see my point? The reply they gave here is the same nonsense reply they have given me for months. Save your time and money, and run far far away. The app is easily as much of a scam as anybody you will meet on it.
Better then Grindr by far!
by MTB89roller on 2019/11/13 19:27
Downloaded the app thinking it was going to be another site for random hook ups just like the rest of them out there. I was pleasantly impressed that it is not. It’s much more then that. There are a lot of guys who are actively looking for something more. The features of this app are really easy to use also. It has an easy way of liking guys and seeing who matches with you. So far, while using this app, there have been no bugs or glitches that I can see. Plus, the Admins are extremely nice and willing to hear what you have to say. They’re extremely easy to get a hold of and are focused on making this a better way to meet locals near or anywhere in the country. Keep up the great work!
Best app I've ever used!!!
by Sergsd420 on 2017/11/16 02:05
Thank you surge for connecting me to kind and great people!!! It's The best one I've ever used. It's extremely comforting that to use this app you have to go through a manual verification with administrators that oversee the site. You have to take a picture of yourself holding up a certain amount of fingers, and this is very reassuring to me that administrators are constantly screening for validity to keep this community safe. No more days of taking chances on craigslist where it's dangerous and draws in very low-quality people. Every person I've met so far on here is sweet, kind and just a great person to talk to! Surge really does draw in high-quality people and keeps everyone safe by their third party verification.
Just What Was Needed!!!
by Irvine Kris on 2017/12/21 18:26
Surge is an incredible app compared to the others like it. There are a ton of local users that you can be matched with. On my first day of using the app, I was paired up with 9 guys that were pretty close by!! And no, I'm not just saying "yes" to everyone - I am a bit picky ;). This app is super user friendly and doesn't require a lengthy registration process by any means! If you are looking for a quality gay connection app, definitely give this one a shot! Quality guys exist on here - not just easy midnight Romeos :) Martin, a team member that works for Surge, reached out to me and made sure I was taken care of. Incredible value add. I see great things coming from this app. Now to delete the others on my phone...
Hands down
by Laputis on 2018/02/28 18:58
The new features on the app are amazing, makes it easier for the user to travel between pages. Love the picture feature where it shows the picture only once and it lets you know if the user screenshoted your picture. It's nice to see who liked you so you can quickly match them and start a conversation. Also the feature where it shows you if the user saw your message. Love how you can undo your matching if you mistakenly disliked someone by accident and you meant to like them. Perfect for changing your location to see other guys in other states that you travel to. ( if you travel for work and such). All around an amazing app I really recommend it !
A Beautiful Experience
by -Nathanael- on 2018/05/06 12:43
Surge is a truly phenomenal app. It is similar enough to other dating networks, making those familiar with apps like Tinder feel right at home, while standing out with a beautiful UI and color palette. The app itself is quick and responsive, and allows for much more customization than most other dating networks. I never have a problem with Surge, and matches come in a continuous stream. Additionally, the user support and representative team are very kind and communicative, even going so far as to check in every now and then to make sure everything is alright. All-in-all, Surge is a very well designed app and preforms beyond expectation. I would highly recommend!
Leaves a LOT to be desired...
by RSpire on 2018/04/10 15:53
The concept is basically Tinder with 1/10 of the people. And most of those are just the same people on this less-populated app. At first, all seems good—even with the still limited and largely duplicated participation—until you realize many of the “hot gay men” are people with fake profiles and pictures who are right-swiping the world from a place that’s nowhere near you (if not nowhere in reality). And all those issues you are trying this new app to avoid? Yeah, they’re here too for all of the above reasons. +2 stars for the entertainment of throwing a dart into the dark to try and peg a handsome, intelligent, and honest guy that actually can communicate with q&a, -3 for not providing any more functionality or tools that make that possible. AND, this app seems to endlessly be in “maintenance mode” at random times of MANY days, which frequently makes it unusable.
Clean, if you’re Unsure use this app
by Alfred Ben Weird Folds on 2018/05/04 07:41
There comes a lot with getting the premium add ones, but without them it’s cool. If you want to be held accountable for a professional interaction, everyone is required to use their Facebook. No one can see it but who uses this app, nor will anyone you’re friends on Facebook see you use this app. During the free use, and you can always just use free, you aren’t able to see who liked you and back up to give them a second chance. Other than that, you can swipe and if you and the person you swiped right with did so then you’ll get to chat. If all else fails, guys leave their snapchats and instagrams in their profile pics.
Nice app
by Bound4Pleasure on 2017/10/25 02:31
Infinitely better than Grinder. Similar to Tinder but much better in my opinion. Easy to use and some nice features. Premium acct offers some good upgrades like seeing your past decisions and being able to changing your old response of like/dislike. Handy as I gave multiple incorrect responses in my first 10 minutes on app. I meant to advance thru pics but inadvertently discarded some cool dudes. As for fake military profiles mentioned by couple of reviews, I've never seen one of these apps that didn't have a few now and then. It's not bad here like on grizzly. Everyone should always be on guard anyway, and use some basic discretion and common sense on any social media these days!
Happy Customer
by where is Mr. right on 2018/07/19 22:11
I had just open my app and I was having a really good time on it when I had an issue. With someone on the site I reported it and it was fixed immediately there he very grateful for my Feedback and was very apologetic about the incident and rewarding me for having the issue which they did not have to do I feel that they are doing their part in what they were supposed to do to let us have The app to be able to get out and about even when we’re not able to get out I am very happy with the site and plan on being here until I find that special someone Thanks again for responding as quickly as you did happy hunting
One of the Best Apps to Meet Genuine Guys
by CoolAllStar88 on 2020/07/13 13:28
In comparison to other apps for your phone, this application allows a higher number of search of guys around your area who are a closer match to ones profile and getting to speak with them is not as difficult. The profiles of the other gentleman are real and the app itself is very user friendly. The guys on the app are very good looking, handsome and attractive. The administrators on the app are very helpful, courteous and cool too. If one is looking for an app that will work effectively and allow a variety of options to ones own profile and finding an ideal match, I highly suggest you give this app a good try. Thank you.
Impressed
by Mr. Kerwin on 2018/07/30 22:25
This is one of the cleanest dating apps I've ever used. It doesn't have a lot of filters or functions like the other apps, but it doesn't need all of that. For me, the point is to go through the profiles as if you're actually seeing the guy in person. And, if you like the impression he left, you show your interest by approaching him and making conversation, or in this case, swiping right. If he's also interested, you guys continue to talk. What I love most about this app is the matching system because people are only able to contact you if you have an interest in them. This feature filters out unwanted solicitation.
Awesome app and Surge team!
by MacEvilyn on 2018/05/25 18:59
I downloaded the app because I tried others and they all seem to have guys only interested in hook ups, even though they said otherwise. As I browsed the profiles in Surge, I noticed right away that there were different faces compared to the other apps, and as kept browsing I realized that the faces were different because the intent was different. The profiles in Surge seem to be of guys that are genuinely looking for a serious relationship, or friendship, or just chatting. The interface is fun and fresh which somehow makes you feel hopeful that you are going to find that special guy that you’ve been looking for. Great work guys!
Awesome app
by Moo moo farms on 2017/10/09 08:10
I just started using this app today and already I'm matching up with cute guys!, and making good conversation. Like tinder you swipe right and left, but what I like about this app is that it notifies you when somebody likes you, which keeps you happy and motivated, otherwise after like 10 failed swipes Id usually get bored or super salty. There are other nice features like when you look through someone's pics, you see that some pics are set to private which makes me that much more excited to match with them!! So far its a very clever and classy app, nothing too raunchy, I've been using it all day, I think most will like it.
Beware!
by GabboTheGreat on 2017/09/25 06:46
Ignore my old review at the bottom. I wrote it after just two days at the request of Surge staff. I started out really liking the app but have come to realize it is truly riddled with scam artists - many who say they're in the military overseas. Guys with totally false identities from all over the world (often Arab countries in the Middle East or Africa) who try to get my credit card info and more. Most want to chat not on Surge but other more anonymous apps like Kik or Hangouts. Be very careful on Surge. Staff says it is working hard to get rid of the con artists but apparently not hard enough. Enough is enough: I deleted Surge from my phone today. If you need more convincing, scan the other reviews. My original review said this: Ive only been using Surge for a few days but I must say I like it a lot. it's easy to use and there's a good selection of guys. it's a refreshing change from all the old apps 😊
Horrific!!!!
by That's all follks on 2018/07/16 00:09
This app has nothing but scam artists up and down. Total bull crap!!! Now many of us now have multiple profiles and have been victims of credit card fraud. Stay away from this app!!! FRAUD!!! FRAUD!!! FRAUD!!!! Though, I paid for the premium membership. I canceled it immediately. Removed my photo and praying I’m not being catfished. There’s absolutely no one in my area. I’m getting reach by people overseas. So, they claim. I started chatting with someone. He mentioned that they’re in the military and it’s his birthday. I caught on when I was asked to buy a gift card. And when I do they need the copy of the receipt. Since when you need a receipt for that!! He kept pressing me to purchase it. He was a scammer. Now. I have the developer reaching out with the same line. I see on other bad reviews. Beware of this site!!! It has literally turned me off from dating sites. HORRIFIC SITE!!! YOU WILL NOT GET YOUR MONEY BACK EITHER!!!
The best new thing since brunch.
by ChiefKenC on 2019/04/22 19:53
So I have pretty much all the apps...you know what ones I mean. I’ve been using this one for a few days now and I really like it. I mean a lot. Like if the app wanted to hookup with me I would. It’s great. No really. Here’s the deal... Interface is easy: swipe left or right just like the “flame app” or click the “X” or heart, whatever you want to do. Pictures are easier than any of the other apps I’ve seen. Verified profiles are great because you just match a pose, you don’t have to do some foolish “write down this thing on appear and...blah blah blah” It’s easy to filter by age and distance other filters come with the premium version which I find super helpful. If there is a weakness it’s just that the app is newer so fewer guys on here. That said, it’s growing and there are still a ton of dudes for you to checkout! So come on over and start swiping or tapping. I am not a paid actor, I’m an actual gay dude who keeps trying to get laid and keeps failing on other apps and I’m using this one now...follow my lead!
Exceptional Dating App!
by ProfDuBois on 2019/11/01 11:40
Surge is one of the most user-friendly dating app I’ve ever used. Registration and setup is extremely simple. Provide your name, email address and a headshot photograph and you’re on your way. However, don’t forget to complete the particulars in your profile such as type of relationship seeking, sexual preference, height, weight, and most of all about me. Now you’re ready and on your way to find your dream guy! Swipe right for yes, left for no. It’s that simple! When a match occurs you are instantly notified and are then able to chat with your potential candidate.... I highly recommend and have fun!! Let’s surge!!
Surge
by Fred Squared on 2019/07/29 22:36
This is definitely a new approach to dating apps. When initially setting up Surge, you will feel right at home with the standard swipe left/swipe right that swiftly allows you to get acquainted with an already impressive and diverse population for such a recently released app. There is even a welcome video to make the user base feel right at home. Customer service might be perhaps one of the best in the industry. Even though I am a new addition to the very attractive community, I feel right at home as I’m sure you will be too. Excellent first impression after test driving most of the competition. Way to go, Surge!
Finally a proper dating site for men.
by Lew47788 on 2017/10/13 21:58
After using Surge for a week I found the app really user friendly. It’s straight forward approach to making your profile includes advanced privacy features, location adjustments for travel benefits as well as a premium tier. With the premium you get to see who liked you, their pics once you’ve matched and a second chance on those you might have swiped to quickly on. Speaking for myself I’ve met a pretty awesome professional guy off here who shared a lot of similar interest. I give this app 5 stars if your looking for friends, fun or a future mate I would give Surge a try.
great app so far!
by bl00dylevin on 2018/06/19 19:27
i’ve only been using this app for 2 days and it reminds me a lot of tinder but it’s so much better, in my opinion. you get to see who you swiped right on and you could still check their social media! there’s a lot of adjustments you could put on your profile that other apps can’t or won’t have. And the admins are the best! they make sure that your time on the app is enjoyable and they try to improve your overall experience on the app, which is once again, something that other gay dating apps don’t do! highly recommend :)
A great app.. at first.. but then.. no so great
by unbreakableZ on 2017/12/14 04:38
UPDATE: after a few months of using this when there are no more people to swipe you start to get fake accounts messaging you. Typically hot men to get you to swipe right, possibly fake model pic, typically it’s to advertise some porn site or some other product. The conversations always start the same and seem computer generated. I got tired of always reporting so I deleted it. Not worth it. ——- original review below.. they had given me premium service to write a good review—— This app is the tindr for gays! With special differences and filters to help avoid ones that you know you won't connect to. Also the app doesn't glitch like others ex) i don't lose conversations . Even the premium options are very tempting bc they are different than other apps and much better . I look forward to who I meet on here.
They were very kind to me
by Hermes213 on 2019/06/11 20:07
They gave me a free month of premium membership which I wasn’t expecting it. So thank you so much A very much needed update so not only was I under the illusion that I was finally talking to my soulmate finds out two people marched up with had fake accounts and had similar stories I chose one but turns out they were both scammers trying to make a fool and a quick buck. I seriously hate being used by other people it’s just wrong. But won’t give up on love just got to keep trying. The thing is they got me to erase my profile along with the evidence. One way to warn everyone that the scammers use google hangouts as a way to lure them away from monitoring sights. So anyone wishing to leave the sight immediately and into a hangout is more then likely a scammer
Real vs Fake
by JojoDontTrust on 2017/10/01 08:43
It has only been several days now since I signed up and purchased the year premium package... and I feel I may have made a mistake... I see some real profiles here coz I’m familiar with some of the members, but lately I have been receiving likes from really attractive guys with multiple photos and they all have one thing in common that their profile is FAKE!!! They try to flatter you with how they are in search for love and want to spend the rest of their lives with someone etc... only after just several conversations they explain their problems and need money... such as lost/stolen passport, theft, credit cards not working, family abandonment, and the list can go on and on with reasons that may sound convincing. And when ask to prove if their real by doing FaceTime or video call... all of the sudden they are busy or they claim their phone is lost or stolen or broken, or they only have a desktop which is BS!!! And last, when they chat with you... they all have similar traits in conversations... it doesn’t sound authentic... I really hope this can be fixed...so far I’ve had 4 people try to pull a fast one... Thank you
Almost but not quite
by umc1989 on 2017/09/19 01:40
I had previously written a 5 star review because of all the cool features (especially certifying one's profile, which is easy to do and everyone should be doing it) but now I have to take one star off because apparently, even in the premium version, some of the limits from the free version persist. I set my filter to only certified profiles and it doesn't work. It also doesn't give me an option to filter by bottom/top. And I still have few swipes!! I thought that was an intentional limit from the free version but apparently, there are just not that many people using the app in my area. 🚨THERE ARE, HOWEVER, MANY GUYS HERE WHO JUST TRY TO LURE YOU TO MALWARE SITES OR SEX CAM SHOWS & GET YOUR CREDIT CARD INFO. DON'T FALL FOR IT!!!!🚨 🚨REPORT THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!🚨 I know developers can't directly control how many REAL users they have, but maybe if they work on adding filter settings and making sure filters actually work, more real guys would join/keep using the app! :) Other than that, it's a really great app. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.
Awesome App
by Phillforeal on 2018/02/12 22:38
At first, I was kind of skeptical of this app. I just turned 18 and I was kind of new to the whole dating app thing. This app offers something for everyone. I enjoy this app above all others simply because of the private mode. I’m a private person and I don’t want everyone to know my face. Private mode restricts other users from seeing your profile, unless you like them first of course. They also have friendly administrators who give splendid service at any time of the day. They address any questions you may have about the app. Here’s a shout-out to Martin 😂❤️
Eduardo
by Eduardo__1 on 2018/04/05 12:06
This app compared to all the other gay dating apps offers most of the basic features that I find important to have like unlimited messaging, basic search features limited to age and distance so if you want to customize your search parameters that’s when you would consider becoming a premium subscription member. At the very least you can search in basic unlimited. The only thing I would like to have change is that you cannot view photos that have liked your profile. Overall I give Surge a 9 out of 10.
Great app
by cais1 on 2018/10/27 00:33
Surge is the worst dating website I have ever been to. Often in times the profiles you find there are fake. People start with a talk saying they are working for the military just to scam you. My experience there could have it been worse. Aside from those fake profile, they don't have much to offer, they keep on showing you the same people over and over again, the ones you don't have anything in common. You already swapped left once but they keep showing you the same ones over and over again. It's like no one is there, they don't have anything to offer. Oh, if they ask you to write a review for a free month membership, another scam. It gets expired prior you clam it. You are better off with any other dating app than this. This is the worst dating app ever.
Great app. Not so stellar support.
by Lord Krath on 2018/10/18 23:28
I originally published a scathing review because of login difficulties I faced when I was signed out of the app. I signed up initially as a tester using an account test with. Unfortunately, I did not think of this after I finally subscribed. Though Apple purchase and subscription shows my Apple account, it isn't necessarily the same as the account used to register. So, even if condescending in their assertion, support was correct in that I was not using valid account information. This has happened twice and I am embarrassed. As for the app itself, I have altered my rating to reflect the quality of the app. This is among the only social apps that actually allows a lengthy profile description and yet so few even bother. For this reason, I still remain skeptical that half of the men or more actually exist I my area. I remain even more skeptical that men 2000 miles away "like" me. But I hope someday to meet some new guys that are real and have something to say. Cheers,
Pretty good app.
by jamed69 on 2019/11/10 17:53
This app is not too bad. Layout is good and the functionally is well thought out. No bugs or crashes. The people on it are visually pleasing. It’s like a cross between Tinder and Grindr. It’s really is a nice alternative. My only suggestion would to be allow a few matchces or see who liked you without paying upfront. If your look at scruff and Grindr they give you those or a certain amount free. However the price of the subscriptions are way way cheaper than the aforementioned. Being so inexpensive I will sign up for the pro version. Happy swiping all.
This app is amazing! 💜
by Krystal O.A on 2018/06/08 15:33
I was having a bit of trouble at first not knowing how to use the app and Martin(Admin) was so helpful, he asked how I was liking the app after my first two days and once I told him my concerns he explained a few things and gave me tips on how to get the best experience on the app and let me tell you I’m loving it !!!💁🏻‍♂️ I’d totally get premium if I were you or you’ll be missing out on so many good features 😌 I rate this app 5 stars because I haven’t used an app better than this one 👌🏻 (mind you I never EVER write a review for any app so you know this is legit)
Bots and Scams! Frustrating
by Zaiyd on 2018/06/19 01:53
I originally downloaded this app as I was ready to get back to the dating world and see if there is someone out there for me. Martin contacted me and I gave him some of my concerns. He graciously invited me to experience the app and report profiles that seemed fake as they are trying to weed out those accounts. I’ve only been using the app for 3 days and although I chat with some of the people I know, I am overwhelmed with the fake accounts of “military” guys with flawless profile pics who state they are working in other countries. These guys don’t even speak correctly and constantly ask you to download other apps to chat with them. On top of that, I continuously get these profiles asking me for money when I don’t even know them. This app needs so much work to enable legitimate profiles to be able to communicate with each other without being bombarded by all the bots and scammers. It’s more frustrating to be on the app than trying to find someone legitimate and willing to meet. I’ll continue to evaluate the app as Martin has asked me to, but I feel that my time is limited if the overwhelming amount of bots and scammers are not removed.
The best choice when it comes to gay dating apps
by Bootificial on 2018/10/10 01:17
As a student who's on a budget, I've had to skip out for most of the dating app craze, as apps like Grindr had base-line subscription fees you had to pay just to use it. Not only was money a concern, but the user interface of these applications were themselves. I found that Grindr had a very buggy and nonsensical system when it came to matches and chats. So yeah, I avoided these apps like the plague. That was, until, I found Surge. Surge works like most any of these apps, but with a couple of fantastic features included: -Being able to use the app without paying -Having great perks and features for those who do pay for premium -The ability to easily customize your search options -A messaging system that surpasses even iMessage itself in some ways -A simple and useful swiping mechanic that you get the hold of almost immediately -All features are very accessible

Need to pay to most of the basics. Can only talk to people who like you. But you can’t see who likes you without paying. 4/5 profiles are fake. Scammers want you to send them money. If you match with seemingly gorgeous guy, 10/10 times it’s a fraud. Watch as their 5 miles away from switch to 5000k miles in a matter of seconds. The fake profiles respond using poor grammar, and say things like they wanna spoil you. lol ok. Yeah right. Now when someone sends you pictures, as soon as you look at it it’s no longer viewable even if you look at it by mistake. I recommend people reverse image profiles that match with you because they most likely stole the photos from somewhere. Just a joke of a site.
Malfunctions too much
by Auxteur on 2017/11/26 22:59
I can not recommend this app. I never used apps such as these but have used this since Jan '17. And paid for premium. It's nice looking but fails in it's function. After contacting the reps, it's apparent they do not care about fixing issues; the customer support is unsatisfactory. For example, to save time, I made certain in my email that they understood clearly which email I use for my account. The first and only question in the response was "what email?" Which shows they don't even read or pay attention. Also, never met a single person on the app. But certainly got tricked by too many fake profiles. Downloaded a popular competitor app and have met several nice people already within weeks. So, the pool of members is better than on Surge elsewhere. Lastly, the app still malfunctions. It doesn't show likes for weeks, when they ARE actually there. The Likes show in general search, but the like category never updates where it should. I've communicated this in detail more than once. The app is a fail for me - burned by fakes, no meets, malfunctions, and disinterested and incapable customer support. Either unwilling or unable.

Was once a great app, but now a scam
by MGC268 on 2020/10/20 16:15
Ah man, I really don’t take pleasure in writing something like this, actually I do. Let’s start with the positive. The app is well designed. Have to give it credit where it is due. Easy to use. Set up a profile and all that. So that’s where the positives end. I don’t believe anyone real uses this app anymore. It has been taken over by bots and scammers. You have the classic type of saying he is in the military and shipping off. Then the type that can’t speak English but asks for your email or number. Then we have the clever type which really tries to warm you up. Then masks their own number trying to blackmail you. Ofc all of these scammers are easily avoidable and you can block them. But like an army, they keep coming. I am starting to believe the developer isn’t even trying at this point. I get the same response that I should just report and block them. Also apparently they are trying really hard to stop them. Well clearly nothing has worked as there are more scammers than ever. This app is unusable at this point Also I met only one real person from it. That will give you an idea. Another thing I noticed is that even the real users aren’t even online. It says they are online and then they never see a text I sent them. At this point the app should be shut down and redone. Because it’s a dead husk now. To the devs that read this. Look you need to make sure everyone verify their account before even setting up a profile. Because even scammers can beat the Bot test. Please and thank you But I will say with confidence that I will never download and use this app again. No matter how many free months of premium I get. Bye Surge!

I just downloaded the app, and already I am seeing so many friendly faces. People on this app seem more genuinely focused on a relationship, rather than just intimate encounters like you see with so many other dating apps.

I love that the admins on this app are super nice and responsive. However, there were only a few guys in my area and I live in a major city. The few guys that I matched with either didn’t log in often or were fake/catfish accounts. Other than that, the app has a nice user interface, very easy to use, and I haven’t experienced any technical issues.

Sleek/Easy Interface, Lots of Potential
by Regence_Royale on 2018/07/21 08:43
I do like the interface of Surge, it’s easy to use, friendly to trans and non-binary genders, and it’s basically an all gay app like how can you not love that? My only complaints lie in how people out of your set distance and age range can like you but if you don’t increase your range, then you’ll never be able to match with them + this is probably just due to a lack of users, but for my set parameters and in my area, I ran out of swipes super fast and have only gotten one or two new cards per day, if that. Had it not been for an admin granting me a free one month trial, I wouldn’t have even known that these people were way outside of the parameters I set. For instance, I’m looking for 18-23 guys, yet I’m getting a ton of 30-50+ guys ultimately don’t mind when it comes to making friends, it makes scoring a lasting relationship very hard when little to no one comes close to what you’re looking for, both within and especially outside of the things I’ve set. If the app can improve on that and hopefully grow and see more new users, I’d happily give you guys that last star. - Christopher Update July 21, 2018: I found that expanding distance really does help, but I guess there’s just not a lot of people around my area to begin with. Hardly the developer’s faults though! I’m happily giving that last star for the great user service and the general usage of the app.
In a week I was approached by at least 4 scammers
by Guerrilladude on 2018/08/19 17:27
When the beautiful muscular men keep matching with you beware. They all seemed legit at first, numerous profile photos, sound charming. But then I started to notice repeating stories (how many contract building engineers are there?!); varying locations claimed as home with convoluted explanations; every one of these guys claimed to have been in, or currently serving, in armed forces; continually changing reasons why they couldn’t meet in person; falling in love with me after texting for a couple hours; using broken English while claiming to have been born in the U.S. (and then using perfect English that was obviously cut and pasted). I’m over 50 and all these men were 35 or less, so it may be a scam focused on older men. Searched a couple of the phone numbers they were texting from and saw that they are scam phone numbers. I might also add that the developers of the app seem like they are involved in this scam as within one day of installing, they magically gifted me with a month of free service that allowed me to see all these hot guys “liking” me so it made it very simple match with them (without premium version you can’t see the profiles of who likes you). No matter what this app and many of the users are extremely shady - my advice DELETE now.
Great Dating App For Guys
by Ksong28 on 2020/04/18 06:52
This app is like one of my top favorites compared to other gay dating apps. It has a lot of different features if you do get the premium membership though and I think it’s worth the purchase because it’s way cheaper but still a little bit pricey though than other gay dating apps in the App Store. The things you can do with the premium membership is that you get unlimited likes of liking someone and even can go back to the history to see your likes and dislikes again if you do change your mind at a later time and you can change your liking or disliking after you liked or disliked them. Also you can power message them before matching them up for better matches. You can also upload unlimited photos and max of 3 private photos on your profile page. I highly recommend to definitely download the app and give it a try!!! 😉🤗💯 P.S. also be safe and careful on any dating because there are many scammers out there cause even when I’m careful...I still got scammed by someone pretty recently... So watch out guys!
Perfection for Gay Dating
by Ashyboyy69 on 2018/03/31 08:52
The little extra features are way more thought out and beneficial than Dating Apps like Tinder, Grindr, etc.. I’ve met chill guys, gentlemen (who are more wise than my 27 year old self) and great to get advice and guidance from. I’ve bet chill buddies that I have a lot in common with, and I’ve also met a few more serious potentials. The vibe isn’t dirty and slutty like Grindr and Scruff and these boys are super nice and not Pervy. I highly recommend it and the little extra per month for the Premium is completely worth it. I guarantee you that you will find a love interest in a week or two with no issue. Also the team member for San Diego named Martin is a total babe and super sweet. The only upsetting thing about the entire app is that I’m pretty sure he’s already taken. Total bummer but life happens. So stop reading anymore reviews and give it a shot. Seriously, what exactly do you have to lose? The answer is nothing, so good Surging to you Byeeeeeeeeeee
Swipe Right for Mr. Right(s)!
by The Band of Banjos on 2018/09/02 03:30
Super easy to use and fun to play with. Swipe right for guys you like, swipe left for guys outside of that catergory, and click the profile to extract more deets... seriously, it's easy as 1, 2, 3! I've used both regular and premium but I highly recommend investing in premium because it allows you to browse through your history and change from "no thanks" to "let's try this again." It also keeps a list of those who have liked you so that you can go in and play Mr. Destiny by liking them back immediately. Plus, you're presented with almost an unlimited number of guys so you're not restricted to a few within the surrounding area. This is a great app to browse through zillions of guys with the swipe of your finger, so put in a little effort and match up with the right guy(s) for you!
Great alternative to Tinder (for guys!)
by Lohansony on 2017/12/04 21:29
PSA: the more people who get and keep these apps, the better they will be. Living about an hour and a half from the nearest metropolitan area, it can be really hard to find guys. I’ve only had the app for a few days and while I haven’t met up with anyone on it yet, I’ve had more success than on other apps (hot or not, tinder, Grindr...) in that it doesn’t feel like the app wasn’t meant at all for you. This app ACTUALLY SHOWS YOU PEOPLE WHO ARE CLOSE TO YOUR AGE AND ARE NOT 500 MILES AWAY. As with any app of this category, if you want to find others like you, you HAVE to get and keep the app. A bigger user base means it will be less difficult to find someone near you who you might actually like! The app itself is easy to use (very similar to tinder or hot or not) and it allows you to have private photos you can grant or revoke access to on a user-by-user basis (however they keep removing mine......). Overall nice app. Modern and nice.
Con Artist Central
by BryGuy80 on 2018/11/06 21:28
This app is full of con-artist. They spend a day or two talking real sweet to you before they ask for money. In less than two weeks on this app 5 different people (profiles) contacted me. All said they were enlisted in the service and deployed at the moment. All also stated that they would be state side in 7-15 weeks and they couldn’t wait to meet. After a few more days of speaking almost all of them told me their parents were dead and they needed money collect their personal belongings. Requests spanned a request from $250-$800. Another requested $50 Google Play digital cards emailed to him. Now today one of them asked for my bank login information to make a deposit for me. I keep blocking them and reporting. I can only believe that the creators of this app have got to be in on this scam. It is just to prevailing for them to not be well aware of the issue or in on it. They even rewarded me with a free month for a good review. Right after that is when the cons began to come in like crazy. Time to delete this app and you should as well or just don’t waste the time and download.
has flaws and potential, give it a chance
by frankfarm on 2018/06/11 05:09
After using Surge for four weeks, the earlier one-star and low-star reviews are my experience as well—so many likely scammers. Only two guys I matched seemed likely legit. I’m tempted to delete the app, but to be fair it has potential and needs a critical mass of users in order to succeed, so I’m keeping it a while longer. We need more strong competitors in this app category in order to encourage all of them to improve and innovate. Usability tip: while swiping you can tap the photo once to show or hide profile details. That wasn’t clear to me for a while; it wasn’t obvious to me from the interface. My suggestions: (1) go thru the verified process (which took longer than I expected). Scammers are probably less likely to do so, so this helps others know you’re legit. (2) use the app for a few weeks before you review it and you’ll understand why its current 4.5-star rating is unwarranted.
Way Better Than Tinder
by Averiis on 2017/12/16 16:11
I shows you grayed our pictures of people you like you so depending on how hard you look and how good you are at comparing a gray image to a color image you figure it out. Also when do get a match and begin chatting the chat has a “seen” message once the person open the messages and sees it so you can pretty much tell if they are ignoring you or just haven’t opened the message. Unlike tinder where you are stuck in limbo wondering. The one thing I don’t like is if you send pics via chat you can only look at them once but I understand why so I don’t mind it all that much. I do like that if you choose to you can add private photos if that’s the kind of thing you are into and since it’s geared towards gay men there isn’t much you have to to set your parameters.
Best Gay Dating App Around
by Ascvbng on 2018/06/03 08:41
Like Tinder but better: This gay dating app for men has tons of cool features with premium service including setting a location to search for guys, finding out people who like your profile, and setting what you are looking for in your profile, whether it’s a casual hookup or something more long term. I’ve already met some great guys on this app and really appreciate it’s easy to use interface... only thing I’d like to see changed is being able to have more space for a bio, perhaps adding more questions so you get a bigger feel for the guy you are looking at. OkCupid does this well, so I’d look to them for an example. Regardless, this is definitely one of the BEST gay dating apps for men I’ve discovered thus far. Looking forward to finding my Mr. Right sometime soon ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
Great App
by {Mick} on 2017/11/01 17:59
So I am using three different apps currently. All of them have positive and negative features. So far this app has proven to be the best between the three. I have met really interesting people and all of them have been very honest and upfront with me regarding their wants and desires. In addition, I have been approached by the admin and was able to address some issues with the app. I am hopeful they will fix the one issue I have related to removing photos of individuals you have decided you “don’t like”. The other, not being able to upload locked pics, they let me know is an Apple and Google Play issue and that they are working at trying to resolve this issue. I happily rate this app as a 5 Star app. Btw, I did sign up for the premium membership and was happy with it.
Good App
by Jamazing100 on 2018/02/23 08:28
Surge is great. Do know you need to pay to really get the best of it, but once you’re in - you’re in! Profile setup is easy, local search is easy, and it’s easy to get filter people you’ve liked, disliked, matched, power-liked, etc. There are also filters for types of members as well - the only one I use being the ‘profile verified’ so I can peruse others with complete profiles - they are so easy to set up ~ don’t bother wasting your time with someone who doesn’t have one. Only been using it about a week, but it’s pretty nice. Got several chats going - and even if none of them look like they are going anywhere yet, it’s still super early and I’m only looking in a small radius. I’m sure in bigger cities there are lots of options :)
AVOID
by Louvre2019 on 2018/04/14 19:52
I first got on this app awhile ago and thought it was very well done. However the reason why I am giving it a 1 Star is majority of the profiles on this app are men claiming to be overseas for the military but in fact they are men living in foreign countries that barely speak English and want bank information or money. I even had accounts ask me for my social security number on this app. I’ve tried reporting these profiles but it doesn’t seem to go anywhere. I wouldn’t recommend this app to anyone cause you will risk loosing your money and identify on this app. I’m nervous that these fake profiles pose as these handsome men and concerned that they may have just screenshot someone’s photos from online or another dating site. I would suggest to the app developers to add a security feature on the app to where people have to send a photo copying a pose before they can set up an account. Until then, I’m getting off this app and going to find something more secure and trustworthy. Please do not download this app.
Fair progress for gay online dating
by download_addict_17 on 2017/10/01 06:36
I started using Surge a few days ago and there are a number of things to appreciate about the app. First, like a lot of other apps, it allows you to connect it with your current location so that you can see available men nearby. Second, I appreciate the app asking what I'm looking for - relationship, hookup, friends, etc. - and takes that into account (at least, I'm assuming it does). Third, the premium option allows you to see who's liked you so that you can like them back and begin chatting. Fourth, Surge let's you post private photos that can only be viewed by your matches after they ask permission. It's a very clean and well organized app. It's not as shady as Tinder, and not nearly as murky as Grindr. With another update or two, Surge could very well be the official Gay Bumble.
Don’t waste your time or money
by charlarog on 2018/10/09 03:38
This app is full of catfish and spammers, as many are. The difference is that the admins don’t care. Want to block somebody? You can try. But the admins have to approve the block. Otherwise, the user just stays unblocked. I’ve been getting harassed by one user in particular for six months. He always uses the same name, and it is always pictures of the same guy. I’ve blocked him close to a hundred times, and it keeps unblocking him. These people are content to take your money and ignore you forever. There is no “customer service” from them. I’ve contacted them repeatedly, and they always make the same excuse “we are working on it constantly”. Half a dozen updates later, and they have still done nothing, because they don’t care. Edit: see my point? The reply they gave here is the same nonsense reply they have given me for months. Save your time and money, and run far far away. The app is easily as much of a scam as anybody you will meet on it.
Better then Grindr by far!
by MTB89roller on 2019/11/13 19:27
Downloaded the app thinking it was going to be another site for random hook ups just like the rest of them out there. I was pleasantly impressed that it is not. It’s much more then that. There are a lot of guys who are actively looking for something more. The features of this app are really easy to use also. It has an easy way of liking guys and seeing who matches with you. So far, while using this app, there have been no bugs or glitches that I can see. Plus, the Admins are extremely nice and willing to hear what you have to say. They’re extremely easy to get a hold of and are focused on making this a better way to meet locals near or anywhere in the country. Keep up the great work!
Best app I've ever used!!!
by Sergsd420 on 2017/11/16 02:05
Thank you surge for connecting me to kind and great people!!! It's The best one I've ever used. It's extremely comforting that to use this app you have to go through a manual verification with administrators that oversee the site. You have to take a picture of yourself holding up a certain amount of fingers, and this is very reassuring to me that administrators are constantly screening for validity to keep this community safe. No more days of taking chances on craigslist where it's dangerous and draws in very low-quality people. Every person I've met so far on here is sweet, kind and just a great person to talk to! Surge really does draw in high-quality people and keeps everyone safe by their third party verification.
Just What Was Needed!!!
by Irvine Kris on 2017/12/21 18:26
Surge is an incredible app compared to the others like it. There are a ton of local users that you can be matched with. On my first day of using the app, I was paired up with 9 guys that were pretty close by!! And no, I'm not just saying "yes" to everyone - I am a bit picky ;). This app is super user friendly and doesn't require a lengthy registration process by any means! If you are looking for a quality gay connection app, definitely give this one a shot! Quality guys exist on here - not just easy midnight Romeos :) Martin, a team member that works for Surge, reached out to me and made sure I was taken care of. Incredible value add. I see great things coming from this app. Now to delete the others on my phone...
Hands down
by Laputis on 2018/02/28 18:58
The new features on the app are amazing, makes it easier for the user to travel between pages. Love the picture feature where it shows the picture only once and it lets you know if the user screenshoted your picture. It's nice to see who liked you so you can quickly match them and start a conversation. Also the feature where it shows you if the user saw your message. Love how you can undo your matching if you mistakenly disliked someone by accident and you meant to like them. Perfect for changing your location to see other guys in other states that you travel to. ( if you travel for work and such). All around an amazing app I really recommend it !
A Beautiful Experience
by -Nathanael- on 2018/05/06 12:43
Surge is a truly phenomenal app. It is similar enough to other dating networks, making those familiar with apps like Tinder feel right at home, while standing out with a beautiful UI and color palette. The app itself is quick and responsive, and allows for much more customization than most other dating networks. I never have a problem with Surge, and matches come in a continuous stream. Additionally, the user support and representative team are very kind and communicative, even going so far as to check in every now and then to make sure everything is alright. All-in-all, Surge is a very well designed app and preforms beyond expectation. I would highly recommend!
Leaves a LOT to be desired...
by RSpire on 2018/04/10 15:53
The concept is basically Tinder with 1/10 of the people. And most of those are just the same people on this less-populated app. At first, all seems good—even with the still limited and largely duplicated participation—until you realize many of the “hot gay men” are people with fake profiles and pictures who are right-swiping the world from a place that’s nowhere near you (if not nowhere in reality). And all those issues you are trying this new app to avoid? Yeah, they’re here too for all of the above reasons. +2 stars for the entertainment of throwing a dart into the dark to try and peg a handsome, intelligent, and honest guy that actually can communicate with q&a, -3 for not providing any more functionality or tools that make that possible. AND, this app seems to endlessly be in “maintenance mode” at random times of MANY days, which frequently makes it unusable.
Clean, if you’re Unsure use this app
by Alfred Ben Weird Folds on 2018/05/04 07:41
There comes a lot with getting the premium add ones, but without them it’s cool. If you want to be held accountable for a professional interaction, everyone is required to use their Facebook. No one can see it but who uses this app, nor will anyone you’re friends on Facebook see you use this app. During the free use, and you can always just use free, you aren’t able to see who liked you and back up to give them a second chance. Other than that, you can swipe and if you and the person you swiped right with did so then you’ll get to chat. If all else fails, guys leave their snapchats and instagrams in their profile pics.
Nice app
by Bound4Pleasure on 2017/10/25 02:31
Infinitely better than Grinder. Similar to Tinder but much better in my opinion. Easy to use and some nice features. Premium acct offers some good upgrades like seeing your past decisions and being able to changing your old response of like/dislike. Handy as I gave multiple incorrect responses in my first 10 minutes on app. I meant to advance thru pics but inadvertently discarded some cool dudes. As for fake military profiles mentioned by couple of reviews, I've never seen one of these apps that didn't have a few now and then. It's not bad here like on grizzly. Everyone should always be on guard anyway, and use some basic discretion and common sense on any social media these days!
Happy Customer
by where is Mr. right on 2018/07/19 22:11
I had just open my app and I was having a really good time on it when I had an issue. With someone on the site I reported it and it was fixed immediately there he very grateful for my Feedback and was very apologetic about the incident and rewarding me for having the issue which they did not have to do I feel that they are doing their part in what they were supposed to do to let us have The app to be able to get out and about even when we’re not able to get out I am very happy with the site and plan on being here until I find that special someone Thanks again for responding as quickly as you did happy hunting
One of the Best Apps to Meet Genuine Guys
by CoolAllStar88 on 2020/07/13 13:28
In comparison to other apps for your phone, this application allows a higher number of search of guys around your area who are a closer match to ones profile and getting to speak with them is not as difficult. The profiles of the other gentleman are real and the app itself is very user friendly. The guys on the app are very good looking, handsome and attractive. The administrators on the app are very helpful, courteous and cool too. If one is looking for an app that will work effectively and allow a variety of options to ones own profile and finding an ideal match, I highly suggest you give this app a good try. Thank you.
Impressed
by Mr. Kerwin on 2018/07/30 22:25
This is one of the cleanest dating apps I've ever used. It doesn't have a lot of filters or functions like the other apps, but it doesn't need all of that. For me, the point is to go through the profiles as if you're actually seeing the guy in person. And, if you like the impression he left, you show your interest by approaching him and making conversation, or in this case, swiping right. If he's also interested, you guys continue to talk. What I love most about this app is the matching system because people are only able to contact you if you have an interest in them. This feature filters out unwanted solicitation.
Awesome app and Surge team!
by MacEvilyn on 2018/05/25 18:59
I downloaded the app because I tried others and they all seem to have guys only interested in hook ups, even though they said otherwise. As I browsed the profiles in Surge, I noticed right away that there were different faces compared to the other apps, and as kept browsing I realized that the faces were different because the intent was different. The profiles in Surge seem to be of guys that are genuinely looking for a serious relationship, or friendship, or just chatting. The interface is fun and fresh which somehow makes you feel hopeful that you are going to find that special guy that you’ve been looking for. Great work guys!
Awesome app
by Moo moo farms on 2017/10/09 08:10
I just started using this app today and already I'm matching up with cute guys!, and making good conversation. Like tinder you swipe right and left, but what I like about this app is that it notifies you when somebody likes you, which keeps you happy and motivated, otherwise after like 10 failed swipes Id usually get bored or super salty. There are other nice features like when you look through someone's pics, you see that some pics are set to private which makes me that much more excited to match with them!! So far its a very clever and classy app, nothing too raunchy, I've been using it all day, I think most will like it.
Beware!
by GabboTheGreat on 2017/09/25 06:46
Ignore my old review at the bottom. I wrote it after just two days at the request of Surge staff. I started out really liking the app but have come to realize it is truly riddled with scam artists - many who say they're in the military overseas. Guys with totally false identities from all over the world (often Arab countries in the Middle East or Africa) who try to get my credit card info and more. Most want to chat not on Surge but other more anonymous apps like Kik or Hangouts. Be very careful on Surge. Staff says it is working hard to get rid of the con artists but apparently not hard enough. Enough is enough: I deleted Surge from my phone today. If you need more convincing, scan the other reviews. My original review said this: Ive only been using Surge for a few days but I must say I like it a lot. it's easy to use and there's a good selection of guys. it's a refreshing change from all the old apps 😊
Horrific!!!!
by That's all follks on 2018/07/16 00:09
This app has nothing but scam artists up and down. Total bull crap!!! Now many of us now have multiple profiles and have been victims of credit card fraud. Stay away from this app!!! FRAUD!!! FRAUD!!! FRAUD!!!! Though, I paid for the premium membership. I canceled it immediately. Removed my photo and praying I’m not being catfished. There’s absolutely no one in my area. I’m getting reach by people overseas. So, they claim. I started chatting with someone. He mentioned that they’re in the military and it’s his birthday. I caught on when I was asked to buy a gift card. And when I do they need the copy of the receipt. Since when you need a receipt for that!! He kept pressing me to purchase it. He was a scammer. Now. I have the developer reaching out with the same line. I see on other bad reviews. Beware of this site!!! It has literally turned me off from dating sites. HORRIFIC SITE!!! YOU WILL NOT GET YOUR MONEY BACK EITHER!!!
The best new thing since brunch.
by ChiefKenC on 2019/04/22 19:53
So I have pretty much all the apps...you know what ones I mean. I’ve been using this one for a few days now and I really like it. I mean a lot. Like if the app wanted to hookup with me I would. It’s great. No really. Here’s the deal... Interface is easy: swipe left or right just like the “flame app” or click the “X” or heart, whatever you want to do. Pictures are easier than any of the other apps I’ve seen. Verified profiles are great because you just match a pose, you don’t have to do some foolish “write down this thing on appear and...blah blah blah” It’s easy to filter by age and distance other filters come with the premium version which I find super helpful. If there is a weakness it’s just that the app is newer so fewer guys on here. That said, it’s growing and there are still a ton of dudes for you to checkout! So come on over and start swiping or tapping. I am not a paid actor, I’m an actual gay dude who keeps trying to get laid and keeps failing on other apps and I’m using this one now...follow my lead!
Exceptional Dating App!
by ProfDuBois on 2019/11/01 11:40
Surge is one of the most user-friendly dating app I’ve ever used. Registration and setup is extremely simple. Provide your name, email address and a headshot photograph and you’re on your way. However, don’t forget to complete the particulars in your profile such as type of relationship seeking, sexual preference, height, weight, and most of all about me. Now you’re ready and on your way to find your dream guy! Swipe right for yes, left for no. It’s that simple! When a match occurs you are instantly notified and are then able to chat with your potential candidate.... I highly recommend and have fun!! Let’s surge!!
Surge
by Fred Squared on 2019/07/29 22:36
This is definitely a new approach to dating apps. When initially setting up Surge, you will feel right at home with the standard swipe left/swipe right that swiftly allows you to get acquainted with an already impressive and diverse population for such a recently released app. There is even a welcome video to make the user base feel right at home. Customer service might be perhaps one of the best in the industry. Even though I am a new addition to the very attractive community, I feel right at home as I’m sure you will be too. Excellent first impression after test driving most of the competition. Way to go, Surge!
Finally a proper dating site for men.
by Lew47788 on 2017/10/13 21:58
After using Surge for a week I found the app really user friendly. It’s straight forward approach to making your profile includes advanced privacy features, location adjustments for travel benefits as well as a premium tier. With the premium you get to see who liked you, their pics once you’ve matched and a second chance on those you might have swiped to quickly on. Speaking for myself I’ve met a pretty awesome professional guy off here who shared a lot of similar interest. I give this app 5 stars if your looking for friends, fun or a future mate I would give Surge a try.
great app so far!
by bl00dylevin on 2018/06/19 19:27
i’ve only been using this app for 2 days and it reminds me a lot of tinder but it’s so much better, in my opinion. you get to see who you swiped right on and you could still check their social media! there’s a lot of adjustments you could put on your profile that other apps can’t or won’t have. And the admins are the best! they make sure that your time on the app is enjoyable and they try to improve your overall experience on the app, which is once again, something that other gay dating apps don’t do! highly recommend :)
A great app.. at first.. but then.. no so great
by unbreakableZ on 2017/12/14 04:38
UPDATE: after a few months of using this when there are no more people to swipe you start to get fake accounts messaging you. Typically hot men to get you to swipe right, possibly fake model pic, typically it’s to advertise some porn site or some other product. The conversations always start the same and seem computer generated. I got tired of always reporting so I deleted it. Not worth it. ——- original review below.. they had given me premium service to write a good review—— This app is the tindr for gays! With special differences and filters to help avoid ones that you know you won't connect to. Also the app doesn't glitch like others ex) i don't lose conversations . Even the premium options are very tempting bc they are different than other apps and much better . I look forward to who I meet on here.
They were very kind to me
by Hermes213 on 2019/06/11 20:07
They gave me a free month of premium membership which I wasn’t expecting it. So thank you so much A very much needed update so not only was I under the illusion that I was finally talking to my soulmate finds out two people marched up with had fake accounts and had similar stories I chose one but turns out they were both scammers trying to make a fool and a quick buck. I seriously hate being used by other people it’s just wrong. But won’t give up on love just got to keep trying. The thing is they got me to erase my profile along with the evidence. One way to warn everyone that the scammers use google hangouts as a way to lure them away from monitoring sights. So anyone wishing to leave the sight immediately and into a hangout is more then likely a scammer
Real vs Fake
by JojoDontTrust on 2017/10/01 08:43
It has only been several days now since I signed up and purchased the year premium package... and I feel I may have made a mistake... I see some real profiles here coz I’m familiar with some of the members, but lately I have been receiving likes from really attractive guys with multiple photos and they all have one thing in common that their profile is FAKE!!! They try to flatter you with how they are in search for love and want to spend the rest of their lives with someone etc... only after just several conversations they explain their problems and need money... such as lost/stolen passport, theft, credit cards not working, family abandonment, and the list can go on and on with reasons that may sound convincing. And when ask to prove if their real by doing FaceTime or video call... all of the sudden they are busy or they claim their phone is lost or stolen or broken, or they only have a desktop which is BS!!! And last, when they chat with you... they all have similar traits in conversations... it doesn’t sound authentic... I really hope this can be fixed...so far I’ve had 4 people try to pull a fast one... Thank you
Almost but not quite
by umc1989 on 2017/09/19 01:40
I had previously written a 5 star review because of all the cool features (especially certifying one's profile, which is easy to do and everyone should be doing it) but now I have to take one star off because apparently, even in the premium version, some of the limits from the free version persist. I set my filter to only certified profiles and it doesn't work. It also doesn't give me an option to filter by bottom/top. And I still have few swipes!! I thought that was an intentional limit from the free version but apparently, there are just not that many people using the app in my area. 🚨THERE ARE, HOWEVER, MANY GUYS HERE WHO JUST TRY TO LURE YOU TO MALWARE SITES OR SEX CAM SHOWS & GET YOUR CREDIT CARD INFO. DON'T FALL FOR IT!!!!🚨 🚨REPORT THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!🚨 I know developers can't directly control how many REAL users they have, but maybe if they work on adding filter settings and making sure filters actually work, more real guys would join/keep using the app! :) Other than that, it's a really great app. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.
Awesome App
by Phillforeal on 2018/02/12 22:38
At first, I was kind of skeptical of this app. I just turned 18 and I was kind of new to the whole dating app thing. This app offers something for everyone. I enjoy this app above all others simply because of the private mode. I’m a private person and I don’t want everyone to know my face. Private mode restricts other users from seeing your profile, unless you like them first of course. They also have friendly administrators who give splendid service at any time of the day. They address any questions you may have about the app. Here’s a shout-out to Martin 😂❤️
Eduardo
by Eduardo__1 on 2018/04/05 12:06
This app compared to all the other gay dating apps offers most of the basic features that I find important to have like unlimited messaging, basic search features limited to age and distance so if you want to customize your search parameters that’s when you would consider becoming a premium subscription member. At the very least you can search in basic unlimited. The only thing I would like to have change is that you cannot view photos that have liked your profile. Overall I give Surge a 9 out of 10.
Great app
by cais1 on 2018/10/27 00:33
Surge is the worst dating website I have ever been to. Often in times the profiles you find there are fake. People start with a talk saying they are working for the military just to scam you. My experience there could have it been worse. Aside from those fake profile, they don't have much to offer, they keep on showing you the same people over and over again, the ones you don't have anything in common. You already swapped left once but they keep showing you the same ones over and over again. It's like no one is there, they don't have anything to offer. Oh, if they ask you to write a review for a free month membership, another scam. It gets expired prior you clam it. You are better off with any other dating app than this. This is the worst dating app ever.
Great app. Not so stellar support.
by Lord Krath on 2018/10/18 23:28
I originally published a scathing review because of login difficulties I faced when I was signed out of the app. I signed up initially as a tester using an account test with. Unfortunately, I did not think of this after I finally subscribed. Though Apple purchase and subscription shows my Apple account, it isn't necessarily the same as the account used to register. So, even if condescending in their assertion, support was correct in that I was not using valid account information. This has happened twice and I am embarrassed. As for the app itself, I have altered my rating to reflect the quality of the app. This is among the only social apps that actually allows a lengthy profile description and yet so few even bother. For this reason, I still remain skeptical that half of the men or more actually exist I my area. I remain even more skeptical that men 2000 miles away "like" me. But I hope someday to meet some new guys that are real and have something to say. Cheers,
Pretty good app.

This app is not too bad. Layout is good and the functionally is well thought out. No bugs or crashes. The people on it are visually pleasing. It’s like a cross between Tinder and Grindr. It’s really is a nice alternative. My only suggestion would to be allow a few matchces or see who liked you without paying upfront. If your look at scruff and Grindr they give you those or a certain amount free. However the price of the subscriptions are way way cheaper than the aforementioned. Being so inexpensive I will sign up for the pro version. Happy swiping all.
This app is amazing! 💜

I was having a bit of trouble at first not knowing how to use the app and Martin(Admin) was so helpful, he asked how I was liking the app after my first two days and once I told him my concerns he explained a few things and gave me tips on how to get the best experience on the app and let me tell you I’m loving it !!!💁🏻‍♂️ I’d totally get premium if I were you or you’ll be missing out on so many good features 😌 I rate this app 5 stars because I haven’t used an app better than this one 👌🏻 (mind you I never EVER write a review for any app so you know this is legit)
Bots and Scams! Frustrating
by Zaiyd on 2018/06/19 01:53
I originally downloaded this app as I was ready to get back to the dating world and see if there is someone out there for me. Martin contacted me and I gave him some of my concerns. He graciously invited me to experience the app and report profiles that seemed fake as they are trying to weed out those accounts. I’ve only been using the app for 3 days and although I chat with some of the people I know, I am overwhelmed with the fake accounts of “military” guys with flawless profile pics who state they are working in other countries. These guys don’t even speak correctly and constantly ask you to download other apps to chat with them. On top of that, I continuously get these profiles asking me for money when I don’t even know them. This app needs so much work to enable legitimate profiles to be able to communicate with each other without being bombarded by all the bots and scammers. It’s more frustrating to be on the app than trying to find someone legitimate and willing to meet. I’ll continue to evaluate the app as Martin has asked me to, but I feel that my time is limited if the overwhelming amount of bots and scammers are not removed.
The best choice when it comes to gay dating apps

As a student who's on a budget, I've had to skip out for most of the dating app craze, as apps like Grindr had base-line subscription fees you had to pay just to use it. Not only was money a concern, but the user interface of these applications were themselves. I found that Grindr had a very buggy and nonsensical system when it came to matches and chats. So yeah, I avoided these apps like the plague. That was, until, I found Surge. Surge works like most any of these apps, but with a couple of fantastic features included: -Being able to use the app without paying -Having great perks and features for those who do pay for premium -The ability to easily customize your search options -A messaging system that surpasses even iMessage itself in some ways -A simple and useful swiping mechanic that you get the hold of almost immediately -All features are very accessible
Don’t Waste Your Time Here

Need to pay to most of the basics. Can only talk to people who like you. But you can’t see who likes you without paying. 4/5 profiles are fake. Scammers want you to send them money. If you match with seemingly gorgeous guy, 10/10 times it’s a fraud. Watch as their 5 miles away from switch to 5000k miles in a matter of seconds. The fake profiles respond using poor grammar, and say things like they wanna spoil you. lol ok. Yeah right. Now when someone sends you pictures, as soon as you look at it it’s no longer viewable even if you look at it by mistake. I recommend people reverse image profiles that match with you because they most likely stole the photos from somewhere. Just a joke of a site.
Malfunctions too much
by Auxteur on 2017/11/26 22:59
I can not recommend this app. I never used apps such as these but have used this since Jan '17. And paid for premium. It's nice looking but fails in it's function. After contacting the reps, it's apparent they do not care about fixing issues; the customer support is unsatisfactory. For example, to save time, I made certain in my email that they understood clearly which email I use for my account. The first and only question in the response was "what email?" Which shows they don't even read or pay attention. Also, never met a single person on the app. But certainly got tricked by too many fake profiles. Downloaded a popular competitor app and have met several nice people already within weeks. So, the pool of members is better than on Surge elsewhere. Lastly, the app still malfunctions. It doesn't show likes for weeks, when they ARE actually there. The Likes show in general search, but the like category never updates where it should. I've communicated this in detail more than once. The app is a fail for me - burned by fakes, no meets, malfunctions, and disinterested and incapable customer support. Either unwilling or unable.
