About Daddyhunt

Daddyhunt's mission is to celebrate older gay men and to create a healthy alternative to meat-market websites. On Daddyhunt, older men can chat with other men, share photos, discuss issues facing older guys in the Daddyhunt blog and build lasting friendships. They can also build rewarding and fulfilling relationships with other men. Every week we receive emails from men who have met partners, boyfriends and husbands on Daddyhunt.com. Here, daddies and older gay men never have to lie about their age (or anything else) just to meet other men, since Daddyhunt's members value authentic, natural men over men who are fake in any way.

The men on Daddyhunt differ in age, races, body type and nationality but they all share one thing: mutual respect, acceptance and tolerance. As a result, you'll find that the men on Daddyhunt are more serious about getting together and making real world connections than on other sites. Read more about what it means to be a daddy.

As a team we highly value the community we've built. Every decision we've made, from features to content, has been aimed at supporting and encouraging a healthy form of engagement for our members. That's because Daddyhunt is about showing respect for men of all ages.

The response to our efforts has been tremendously encouraging. Men on the site have responded by creating profiles that are rich, nuanced, and honest about themselves and what they are looking for in a partner or friend. We are very proud of the Daddyhunt community and intend to maintain the unique character of Daddyhunt as we grow.

The History of Daddyhunt

We started Daddyhunt back in 2005 with a simple mission: create a welcoming and attitude-free online community for real men of ALL ages. Over time our site has attracted Daddies, Silver Daddies, Daddies-In-Training, Leather Daddies, Muscle Daddies, Hairy Bears and Daddy- and Bear-Lovers of all ages (we decided to call them "Hunters"). Today, we're proud to say that Daddyhunt is the largest social network, personals, and dating site for men over 40. The site is gay owned and operated and we work hard to serve both our free members and Supporters.

As our community has grown, so have our technical demands; over time we have added pay-features to support the site costs and enable us to continue to grow and improve the site. Today, Daddyhunt is free to join and to use but only our paid Supporters enjoy unlimited messaging, photo views, and other premium features. Through the generous support of this community we are able to grow and constantly improve the site to benefit of all members. Thanks, Supporters!

Ethics of Daddy and Hunter Sexual Relations

We aren't prudes. In fact, we think sex and intimacy are core parts of the human experience at all ages. But we are also committed to keeping our members safe and supporting healthy relationships in many forms. Over the years we have supported numerous safer-sex organizations and we regularly participate in studies with local and national sexual health organizations. We also encourage our members to talk openly and honestly about the kinds of sex they wish to have and their own sexual health plans.

At Daddyhunt we recognize that not everyone has the same understanding of risk or the same real world experience when it comes to casual or longer term relationships. In our opinion, both partners in any intimate relationship are equally responsible for ensuring their encounter is safe, respectful and consensual.

We ask our members to consider affirming a set of sexual safety values we call "The Daddyhunt Code." At Daddyhunt, we are all committed to creating an online community that is affirming, healthy and fun.

Here is a copy of the Daddyhunt code; If you are a Daddyhunt member and haven't signed it yet, please consider doing so now by editing your profile and selecting Personal Details.
