    I know lots of people say going out to clubs and bars is a good way to meet other guys. Then there is also online dating, where you can just HOPE that the person your talking to is REAL and not a whack job with a fake pic.

    What I'm looking for is alternative ways of meeting people. I'm really not into the club or bar scenes..too many people crammed to close together for my comfort. Online dating has gotten me nowhere other then to find lots of guys who would rather cyber or sex cam....no thanks.

    So, what other places can be good for trying to get a date? Please help, as I very much want someone in my life romantically.

    I'm not a bar guy at all... but even though I have an amazing bf and have no interest in meeting someone for a romantic relationship, I have met some pretty amazing friends recently at yoga, at the gym and through a gay mens professional meet up group.

    Sure there have been a couple guys that don't understand what a monogamous relationship is, I'm always very straight forward and clear with my intentions.

    I would say that the greatest guys I've met are through my nude yoga classes. I've really met some amazing men and non of them have tried to cross boundries. Although, most of them would be great boy friends if I wasn't already in love.

    Seriously, Go out and do what it is that YOU like to do
    acting classes
    political volunteering for the Obama campaign
    or for John McSame icon_rolleyes.gif
    yoga
    cooking classes
    or anything you want as long as there are some men there

    After I came out to my friends they all would say they had the perfect guy for me. Your friends know you pretty well so why not have one of them fix you up with a guy that you may have chemistry with.

    "What I'm looking for is alternative ways of meeting people."

    Have you tried your nearest airport? Specifically, the men's room.

    I gotta say that alarm bells went off when I read this. One thing you'll hear over and over from guys who have met the man of their dreams is "I wasn't looking."

    People are at their most attractive when they give off a vibe that says they are happy with or without a partner.

    So maybe instead of trying to find the perfect place to "look", you stop "looking" and just get out there doing stuff (with other people) that makes you happy. This is a lesson that I know I've had to keep learning over and over.
