    Some people come out at 22 because they're already in a relationship, and some people don't find the right person until they're 40. You can't put a timeline on it, so don't stress and do what comes naturally.

    ^^This^^

    Wait until if feels right. There is no rush. You're coming out is never gonna be the same as someone elses. As said above...just do you and be satisfied with that.

    I would say, do what makes the most sense to you. If you do decide to date someone, be open and honest and don't be uninformed when it comes to sexual exploration.

    At 22 you may do as you wish, and whatever works for you, there is no right or wrong answer. I've known plenty of successful couples who got together in their early 20s, often in college, and are still happily & monogamously together decades later.

    I've known other guys who had too many relationships by 30 to remember them all. And even an ex of my own whose 2 years with me was his longest ever, and he's still single as he turns 60, a lifelong bachelor.

    Personally I do think you might spend a year or more (safely) exploring your gay sexuality, and the gay community in general, to give you an experience base with which to make informed & wiser relationship decisions. That's easy in NYC (though also tricky & treacherous at times). But go with the flow, avoiding too many rigid preconditions, and if an irresistible guy comes your way, don't resist. LOL! That's part of your learning curve, too.

    Idk, go out. Start talking to guys. If you feel you can go for sex or a date, then do so. Feel like you're connecting with someone, take the next step. But no1 else knows what is good for you. Only what has worked for them; which helps, but unless you can relate, it's almost pointless to ask strangers.
    How about this. Get some friends together and have a night out, this weekend. Make your goal to have a conversation, connection, flight or whatever your step 1 is, with a guy that night; and go forth from there. No time like the present.
