Allright, a couple months after breaking up with my bf of two years, I decided to start dating and meeting and meet new people. I too live in a small, rural, blue collar areathat doesn't provide nearly as many options and setting in which to meet guys; my demeanor doesn't give away my orientation at all either. So yeah, i use manhunt, grinder and other forms of social networking. Now, going into it, I'm fully aware that a lot of people on these sites are either looking for a hook up (to each its own), or creepers (eek!). So i am very assertive about what im looking for when I write my personal info in my profile, and keep my expectations very low. Im not counting on finding my next relationship there, and im putting myself out there in the real world as much as possible. And when i meet someone online that gives me the slightest reason to believe that we could hit it off, i arrange for us to meet in person. That way, I can make a better assessment. Ive met a lot of really great guys, some have been very enjoyable conversations, some have become friends, and there's a few that im looking foward to see what develops... Good luck.
