    So, I'm still pretty new to all this, and wanted to get to know some other gay men my age in the hopes of getting to know what the gay community is like here in Seattle.

    However I don't have any friends my age who are gay, so I'm pretty much stuck checking out these places solo. Willing to check out the more chill gay bars though.

    Anyone have any ideas or advice in meeting other gay men in Seattle for someone who isn't real big on the bar/club scene? Much appreciated!

    hmm there are tons of gay guys in seattle isn't there? that's where Dan Savage is from isn't he?

    just go to an event of something you like (movies/video games) and try to meet a gay guy that way, but i've found just because you have the same interests doesn't mean you will be compatible romantically --

    so try to just talk to guys online until you find one you click with, then it will just be natural. yeah there are a lot of weirdos/trolls online but there are also a lot of decent hot nice guys too! You have the intuition to sort them out. =)

    Maybe you should try to set up a RealJock meet up . There is bound to be some people who would want to go.

    Check out gay Meetups. There's usually dozens to choose from. Some are wide open, but most are usually tailored to a common interest. Sometimes they are quite specific. Shortly after moving from Seattle to Chicago, a guy I was dating introduced me to a gay "red" wine lovers meetup.

    I really enjoyed those events and met a lot of nice people, that I looked forward to seeing each month. But, even though we tried, it was a little awkward after our break up. I felt it was his turf and backed off. I wouldn't imagine it being a problem if alcohol weren't involved and part of the reason for splitting.

    Finding some gay meetups sounds like a good idea. I'll have to try this out, thanks wild_sky360!

    Achemixt--As for organizing a RJ meetup, I know myself well enough to know that would go horribly on account of my lack of social organization skills. icon_razz.gif

    gaymessiah--yeah I there are a lot guys around these parts. I guess patience is key with all this..

    Thanks for the input so far!
