    Hey guys,

    I've recently just come out of the closet (both to myself and friends) and was wondering where some good places to meet other guys would be (either real or virtual). I'd have a pic up but to be honest, I'm rather intimidated (everyone on this site seems to be friggin hot beyond belief).

    Thanks!

    Look for your local LGBT community center. They will have info about meeting other guys that might match with your interests. Sports teams, book clubs, 12-step groups, high adventure club - whatever you are into, there is likely a group out there where you can meet like minded men. In you are in college, you might find an on-campus LGBT group as well. A quick Google gave me this site for gay sports and recreation in Toronto: http://www.outandout.on.ca/weblinks.htm

    You could check out gay dance clubs, online sex/dating sites and a men's steam/sauna club, but I wouldn't recommend those options only. They might get you laid more quickly, but not likely to lead to meeting someone you really 'click' with.

    Speaking from my experience, of course. Other may have had another experience.

    Fyi, these places pretty much only deal in hookups and NSA sexing. If that's what you're looking for, then go for it. Otherwise you might want to try someplace else.

    Look for activities near your area where you might meet guys with common interests, sports, hiking, cycling, etc. If there are gay groups, consider joining one of interest to you.

    Oh and everyone starts with how they look and goes from there. It's like modeling clay, you are a work in progress. All these hot guys on here, and yes there are many, none of them started out looking like they do now!

    Set your goals and work towards them. One day at a time and before you know it, someone else will be saying that about you.

    Upload a few pics of you. Don't have to be shirtless, naked, muscle ripped, just nice pics of who you are. Most guys appreciate seeing other guys pics from their daily routine.

    Good luck and congratulations, coming out is a big step no matter what the age.

    Yeah I was just about to say that. If you are tying to slut it up then use those sites. Otherwise, just get out in your gay community.

    You could try Plenty of Fish or OkCupid

    Those sites are a bit more towards dating in my opinion. I met some nice people off Plenty of Fish (POF). Recently met a great guy from POF and we are boyfriends now.

    OkCupid is a pretty interesting site, but I've never met anyone off there.

    You're from Toronto so it shouldn't be too hard to meet other guys.
