Our Review

BiggerCity is a dating website for chubs, bears, and those who wanna meet them. It’s not like your typical dating site though, as it focuses on facilitating the community that shares the kink. A lot of the content may be mature and sexual, almost like a subdued porno website, but there are several features on BiggerCity that lets you interact with the members outside of hook-ups and matching. You can participate in forums, post and read blogs/columns, browse through user-uploaded media in the gallery, and even check out other members’ personal websites.

  • You get a personal profile which you can fill out

  • Members are very active but don't usually initiate contact
  • Membership is composed mainly of Caucasian men from USA & UK
  • Targets men aged 35-50

BiggerCity is a dating site that caters to gay and bisexual men who have the specific fetish for chubs/bears. It's not a requirement to be a chub/bear yourself to join, but most of the members do have that build. According to the website's own surveys, 33% of the profiles identify themselves as chubs, 28% as chasers, 19% as bears, 8% as chubs4chub, and 12% as no tag. Though the website covers 160 countries worldwide, its membership is centred in the USA. It also targets Caucasian men aged 35-50. There are a lot of members active, but they don't initiate contact. They are mainly active in the community features, and only then can you meet and chat with them. BiggerCity is for those looking for casual dates that can lead to something more, be it a friendship or a relationship.

Signing Up

Signup
  • Takes 5-10 minutes to create a profile
  • Only needs email verification
  • One-page registration with less than 20 fields to fill up
  • Requires you to tag yourself as Chub/Chaser/Chub4Chub/Bear

Signing up was a breeze. It only took a few minutes, including email verification. It’s only a two-step process with only a few simple fields about login credentials, preferences, physique, and age. However, the website will not allow you to register if you are below 18, since there is a lot of explicit sexual content on BiggerCity. Important note about the sign-up process is that it doesn’t have any safeguards around creating fake profiles, as its security measures are only a captcha and email verification. There are also no options to login via social media accounts or Google, like other websites.

Making Contact

Members Feed
  • Has advanced search based on location, community tag, and age
  • Has a matchmaker option to recommend you profiles
  • Easily contact members from other parts of the website (forums, blogs, galleries)
  • Features members on their birthdays in the website's homepage and profile search
  • Sending messages to other users is free for everyone
  • There is a chatroom
  • Messages are free, but you can't share media unless you're on a paid plan

The website allows you to find members (called 'citizens') in three ways: through search, recommendations, and through the interactions on community features. The search function on BiggerCity is pretty simple. It lets you find members based on location, active status, community tag, and several filters for physique (build, eye colour, hair colour, body/facial hair, weight, and height). It also lets you find people based on keywords. Aside from this, you can find specific profiles through their usernames. The menu bar also features links to quick searches for those who are in your area and who’s online now. You can also see members of BiggerCity who are celebrating their birthday today. This feature acts as a spotlight recommendation page. You can also turn on the matchmaker function that allows the site to suggest profiles that fit certain criteria about lifestyle, educational and career background, and willingness to travel/relocate. The last method to find profiles is through participating in community activities. You can browse through the forums, blogs, sites, and chat rooms and simply click on the profile pictures of those who you’re interested in. For all these methods, you can show interest in other members through sending flirts. Once you’ve chosen those who you’d like to contact, you can either chat with them or send them an e-note (or a message thread). However, you can’t send multimedia elements on a basic account. Overall, BiggerCity has a basic but reliable platform for member contact.

Profile Quality

Profile
  • Allows you to view entire public profiles for free
  • Has no verification badges to distinguish authenticated accounts
  • Photos go through review by the site managers before being published
  • Lets you describe yourself with paragraph fields
  • Some photos are only available for certain users, at the discretion of the uploader
  • The profiles are not very detailed
  • The profile information can be changed later
  • Profile pictures are visible to everyone for free
  • Select profile photos can be added later

The profiles on BiggerCity follow the typical template of casual dating sites. You can show your biodata, physique, interests, lifestyle, education, employment, location, preferences in bed, and profile photos. Interesting to point out in the profile information is the section about a user’s willingness to travel and/or to relocate, probably because the website has users scattered around 160 countries. This piece of information can let you know how serious someone is in meeting up. Additionally, any uploaded profile photos have been reviewed by the site managers, enforcing guidelines that ensure that the photos are of people and aren’t sexually explicit. However, because of the volume of photos and videos uploaded on the website, it may take up to a week for your photo to be approved; which is a century in the digital age. The full profile of all members are available to those with basic accounts, but there are certain photos that can only be accessed if granted an “Unlock” by the particular member. There are also photos on BiggerCity profiles that can be set to be visible to only those on premium accounts. If online safety and security is a big deal for you, you can also check out our gay dating test winners for more secure options.

App

App
  • Message members through the instant messaging feature
  • Has no access to the community features
  • Full app features available for free
  • Adjust the members you see by location

The BiggerCity app is a stripped-down version of the website, and only features the match-finding and chat functions. You can easily browse through profiles in a photo grid. The app is very basic and does not offer anything new for casual dating apps for gay and bisexual men. There also aren't a lot of members on the app as compared to the website, but they do respond quickly. BiggerCity lost a lot of what set it apart from other casual dating sites on the app, so it is recommended to just access the website instead. You can also try out our gay dating test winners if you prefer mobile apps that have more functionality and a bigger membership base.

Real Life Review

I’m a 43-year-old bear living in Chicago. Signing up on BiggerCity has been the best decision of my life. Aside from meeting (among other activities, hihi) several bears and chasers, I’m just glad for the new set of friends I’ve made through this site. It wasn’t hard to click with the rest of the members since there were a lot of ways for us to bond with real people with common interests. I even attended one of the BiggerCity events and it was a blast! Nothing better than a night of bears, booze, and besties. This website definitely made it a breeze to spice up my life.

Design & Usability

The website is very straightforward but it feels bulky, as it doesn't utilise smart and sleek segmentation / transitions between sections of the website. It also uses clipart as its graphic elements, aside from photos that resemble 2000s advertisements. It has a dated interface, mainly because it caters to an older group of users. Despite this, it's very reliable and doesn't take much bandwidth to load. It may be bulky but it's not clunky.

Special Features

Since BiggerCity is interested in building a community, most of its special features are crowd-based. It creates avenues for members to have a richer experience when it comes to dating and making friends. There are a lot of group/public activities such as forums and blogs where members can meet and talk about whatever they're interested in.

Galleries

You can view and upload your own photos and videos to the website's gallery, which are usually erotic or explicitly sexual in nature. You can also upload drawings and fanart. The gallery can only fully be accessed by those on a paid membership, but free accounts can browse through thumbnails.

Blog and Site Directory

BiggerCity allows its citizens to post their personal blogs and websites in a directory for other members to read through. Though it is expected that it deals with a lot of mature content, most of the posts and websites are actually about the personal thoughts, ideas, and lives of the other members. This can range from cooking recipes to their own erotic literature to their opinions on movies.

Public Chat Room

You can participate in public chat rooms with other members online. You can open your own chatroom and broadcast your webcam video for members who join. There are also chat rooms for discussing specific topics.

Events

BiggerCity features a calendar that allows you to see the events that other citizens have organised. These can be simple social gatherings or full-on parties for members in a locality.

Who Viewed My Profile?

You can see the recent visitors of your profile, and you can browse their profiles too. However, this is not accurate as premium members can view profiles anonymously.

Editors Conclusion

Photo Chris
BiggerCity is definitely a website that lives up to its name, thanks to its extra features. It may seem outdated in regards of design and user experience, but what it lacks in flash it makes up for in culture. The way it’s designed might even be a tribute to the innocence and authentic friends we made on forums in the early 2000s of the interwebs. BiggerCity may be grounded in an explicitly sexual interest, but it also provides its members an accepting virtual family. The main issue that BiggerCity has is its lack of security measures, but then, this is a function of its platform allowing a lot of leeway for anonymity. As always, it’s a good idea to keep your sensitive personal information off of your profile, no matter how closely-knit the community may be. If you’re more of the paranoid type and this advice doesn’t calm your nerves, you can check out the gay dating test winners so you can find a dating service that suits you.
