    I haven't been in the area for a long time, and I'm very new to the gay scene in general. I've gone to clubs/bars before in the past by myself, but have had bad experiences of guys simply wanting to get in my pants.

    I had one really close gay guy friend, but he started seeing someone else, which has created a barrier between us unfortunately. Other than him, I don't have any gay friends, or friends who'd be willing to go out with me to meet other men.

    What are stories of how you met good guy friends when you started looking for guys?

    Edit: I'm not meaning to hook up. I simply want to make some gay friends to become friends with. Possibly a relationship.

    My only platonic gay friend in the city I met through adam4adam. We both had non-sleazy profiles and had the same tastes for Thai food.

    Skip grindr. Skip manhunt. Skip craigslist ... based on my experiences there.

    Also a gay sports league is awesome for meeting the gays if you do anything athletic - racquetball, baseball, flag football ... icon_biggrin.gif

    met my BF of 7 years on Craigslist.
    I advertised for somebody to walk on the pier and listen to some live
    music in the village.
    Next thing I know (after 5 years of searching) I found my man.
    We have just bought an apartment and are going on year #8.
    Give everything a try... just be wary and cautious with your heart. Love is out there!

    I tried doing this on CL but only got responses of people wanting to have quick sex... I guess, too, I have always had a personal reservation to finding 'the one' online, esp. on CL.
