    Anyone have some ideas as to how to meet masculine men in Minneapolis, MN? And, I guess I should add, dudes who lean right of center politically. (I know that's a tough one for gay guys) I am looking for a quality guy, committed to monogamy, relationship oriented, attractive (but personality plays a huge part in this), funny, has ambition and self-worth, and all those things that we all look for. It's just that the places available to meet men seem to attract guys who are pretty far from what I hope to find.

    Even if you don't know of specific places in the Minneapolis area, perhaps you know of the types of men's groups.

    Thanks!

    Have you considered your local chapter of Log Cabin Republicans? I believe there is one in Minnesota. I'm quite left-wing, but someone I dated briefly was a member of this.

    There are also gay-friendly churches in many cities, if you happen to be Christian that is.

    you're really reducing the size of your pool if you need to be with someone who is conservative.

    how about someone who is ambivalent about politics, or liberal but not with a strong conviction or liberal but able to see both sides or liberal but non-argumentative... just a thought to keep as many options open as possible

    in terms of meeting them, how bout the Saloon?

    I agree and think this is a good approach. Besides, dating someone that adores Michelle Bachmann gives me stomach cramps........

    i doesn't sound like you're looking for a guy as much as you're looking for an idea.

    I'd just like to say that you're referring to someone who is professional while also calling them dude.

    Who gives a fuck? You can be professional and do or say however you please outside of you work life. He wants a guy with his priorities set straight and also driven, I'm not sure how saying dude (common modern lingo) takes anything away from that.

    Well thanks to all of you who have responded to my question. Some constructive ideas and some not so much...but that's ok.

    I realize that wanting to find a guy who's conservative politically limits my options quite a bit, but.....I know such an animal exists.

    Actually, I am open to a guy who can agree to disagree.....but I think finding this is tough too.

    Well, thanks guys!

    as in a worker on a ranch, not the more common modern day usage popularized by the surfer culture.
