    Problem with those sites is how you draw the line of not wanting to date them. 'Cause they usually start hitting on you.

    I'd actually like to know the answer too. I honestly don't know how to act around gay people unless I'm in bed with them...

    That is true, I've that experience myself and it didn't end well hahha

    And RadTT, That may work for you but it doesn't help when you're on a tiny island in the middle of the sea separated from the rest of Realjock hahhha

    For some reason I've always found online meeting to be too superficial. Many times you like the person until you meet him :/ and then the awkwardness of "where did you met?".

    You're right that online can be really awkward, but it can be hard to meet other gay guys in areas that aren't gay friendly.

    Hmm.. I don't know but from my personal experience people on here meaner than a lot of people I meet in real life. I guess just because it is "online."

    None online. Most of the long time friends by sleeping with them; the more recent ones through other friends or at social functions or sports clubs.

    My friend's suggestion was to go around asking randomly at gay clubs "wanna be amigos?" icon_eek.gif

    I attend several social functions. The two that I remember when I moved to Charlotte were gay bingo and AIDS charity party. I met several guys, they introduced me to their friends and so on.

    I'm an extrovert so I have no issues starting a conversation. But in order to make/keep friends, I usually seek out those who have similar interests as myself. Most of my friends have an interest in different cultures and once I established this interests with them, it makes any topic easy to talk about.

    Did you go by yourself?

    'cause some friends have suggested me to go alone and see what happens but I guess I wouldn't feel comfortable.
