DList To End

The New York Press is reporting that popular gay gossip/hookup site DList will be ending its run next month.

If you’re a 20-something gay man in New York City, chances are you’ve heard of DList.com, have an active profile or have at least hooked up as a result of it. You can imagine my surprise Saturday night at Michael Formika Jones’ new party “F-Word” when nightlife trailblazer and DList creator Daniel Nardicio (pictured at right) told me he was pulling the plug on the social networking site. “Dlist is pretty much dead,” he confessed. “I moved on emotionally when I realized I’d partnered with the wrong person. So I’m developing the next, new exciting version of what I wanted for DList! It’ll incorporate all my original ideas from DList, but move the whole venture into live, real contact.” Though DList may be over—it’s expected to go offline by mid-January—Nardicio is taking his show to Fire Island for the summer. “Also,” he said, “I’m developing an online store to help financially-challenged gay guys shop for cool stuff and promote hot new brands.”
