    Other than the whole cliche guys meet at a cafe, bar, nightclub... what are some weird ways that guys can meet? (this is for a story idea, btw, not for me)

    1. Join a GLBT sporting league
    2. Take dance classes. Gays love the dancing. Ballet is a good bet (if there are guys in the class) but ballroom and hip hop are decent shots as well.
    3. Work in the local theater community. Gays love the theater.
    4. Farmer's Market. Gays love buying organic locally grown shit.

    I like your list. I'm tired of depending on bars and hook ups to meet guys.

    The beach, parks, the gym, outdoor concerts, bike rides, surfing, whitewater kayaking, skiing, sporting events, team sports, auctions. It is easy to meet guys everywhere you go but hard to turn a casual encounter into a date particularly if you don't know if they're gay or not. But I've managed to on a few occasions even in straight bars.

    I have decided on February 13, I am going to place some Justin Bieber valentines with my contact information into some helium balloons and release them into the heavens...

    Then I will let baby cupid do his magic and shoot some arrows into the balloons...

    I just know the right person will come calling.

    I am so going to get laid this V-Day...

    I'd say go to the gym... a heavily populated gym with guys who actually like to workout and who share an interest in fitness... then see who takes a liking, you never know ;)

    Don't you just love Craiglists?? I mean, where else can you find a free site where guys ask you to send them dick picks?! I never get that in the real world!

    i hate to be a contrarian, but i gotta beg to differ with friendormate..... in my experience, whitewater kayaking is NO place to meet guys..... in allllllll my many many years of the sport, i have only met ONE gay dood into whitewater paddling, and yes, indeed, i dated him for a few years, and he turned out to be an abusive, insecure asshole. or something close to that, lol!!!!! but it seems that gays as a group do NOT gravitate towards what is termed "extreme sports". the only gay guy i know that paraglides i recently met on a trip down to colombia, but he was way too shockingly nelly for my taste. everyone on this site that mentions paragliding is along the lines of "something i'd like to try", but no one is DOING ('cept me, it seems). and as for whitewater kayaking, same deal, most guys when they use "kayaking" it is flat water stuff. so far on this site i've only run into two other doods for whom whitewater kayaking is a reality. so --- places to meet guys --- it ain't on launch at the local flying site, nor at the put-in for the river run...... but lordy, i WISH..... unless mr friendormate has had regular success at the put-in where i have not!!! how sweet it is to be in a parking lot where everyone gets naked as they put on their paddling gear!!!!!

    and as an aside, i HIGHLY recommend mr friendormate's profile, his philosophy of living is articulate and brilliant. clearly well thought out, and wise. refreshing!!!!!

    No wonder he thinks he's a sociopath and is worried about killing people. (His words in his confessions post.)

    Good list! All easy to put to work in Vancouver. Now I'm thinking of meeting a sophisticated gay at the ballet/opera, sipping champagne on the 2nd floor balcony bar, overlooking the scene.

    There are many "weird" ways that guys can meet for a story... and for the meeting not to be "forced" into the story, you have to porvide more information on such characters...
