    I'm really tired of meeting all the wrong type of men. Are there any gay groups out there for nice decent single guys to mingle and date without having to deal with hookups/sex only dating? I have tried online too and got the same results.

    Thanks!

    You could join a gay sports league. They're fun!

    look into your interests and then any villages and see what their community center has for meeting groups. If you're going to stress being single to mingle, then you're setting up for disaster.

    Meetup.com might be worth a look since you are in Jacksonville. There are gay singles and activity groups on there depending on your location. (You can always start one on there as well if one is not there to your liking.)

    Seems like that's a common problem for about 95% of people unfortunately... lol

    I can't help thinking that a group for single gays is, no matter what, always going to be about the hookups. It seems like group activities would be more fun if done for the sake of the activity, not for dating purposes. That is, not specifically a LGBT group.

    (Anyway, you'd be surprised at the guys who made passes at me when I was in a "straight" scuba club. Something about compressed air and mild hypothermia brings out the beast in young guys, I guess.)

    Other than that, yeah there are the gay sports leagues, the gay choral groups, gay hiking groups, etc. I see these advertised on bulletin boards in gay bars. Even gay ballroom dancing lessons seemed mildly interesting, but too far for me to drive.

    Hmm... I see on their web site that the gay hiking group is coming out to my neck of the woods next month. Maybe I'll give them a shot.

    Good luck finding anything other than DL hookups while living in a backwards town like Jacksonville. icon_razz.gif

    Thanks for all the replies! I wouldn't mind joining a gay sports league but I don't know anything about sports, I guess I could pretend but that won't really help me at all. I want it to be real and not fake. I will look up this meetup.com site and check them out. I tried Adamd4adam and Grindr, BIG mistake!
