Our Story

How it all started…
After a very unsatisfying stay in rainy London back in 2001 (yes we are that old), Jens – our founder – came up with the idea to create a simple and friendly dating website for gays. iPhone or Facebook didn’t exist yet and online dating was just at its beginning. Offering free unlimited chat turned out to be a big revolution.

“GAYROMEO” started as a hobby and slowly became the number 1 gay platform in Germany and later in Europe. In 2009, we merged with an Asian website and became popular there in many countries overnight. Today, PLANETROMEO is one of the leading worldwide dating platforms and our community keeps growing.

We’re excited to discover what the future has in store for us.
But this story couldn’t get told without our users.

Thanks guys!


Friends and dates, and all that good fun. Who wouldn’t like that? But as it turns out, not everyone is able to truly live out their gay life. That’s why we feel it’s our duty to reach out to those who need our support.
