    So I'm in need of advice. I'm gay, and Im out of the closest. I dont really know where I can meet guys at. I live in a college town where there isn't a gay bar or anything like that. Do gays usually meet other gays at bars/internet? I'm totally straight acting and I at least want to make some gay friends, any advice?

    Boy, I wish I could help you. I live in a city with tons of gay guys and gay bars and I still have a hard time meeting guys. Not many guys I find attractive, tons of attitude, people under the influence, etc. Your best bet is the internet but even that can be just a gay bar without the smoke. The hardest part is when you appear very straight. I find the gay bars and the internet are the only places you can go to where two masculine gay guys can meet knowing from the get-go that they're both gay without all the guessing games. Basically, for you, I'd say the best bet is the internet. However, if someone has a better answer I'd like to know too because I haven't figured it out in all these years.

    I'd say go to check out the University of Colorado at Boulder GLBT Resource Center. You are college age and odds are they have tons of events. They recently had a Boulder Pride Pridefest Block Party down this last September so I'm sure there are other events that help link people up to other clubs, activities, organizations, and people. Best of luck in branching out and making some great gay friends.

    If someone could give an answer to this I would be thrilled because that is my situation verbatim.
    Except, there might be a gay bar, but I haven't checked. The possibility is low as this is a very rural area here at VT
    (on that note, that game today was awesome-excluding the non-Tyrod part). I've got great friends but I'd like to meet some other gay students here that are somewhat

    I actually came onto real jock for that reason and I haven't had too much luck.

    Hey LGWC, go check out http://www.lgbta.org.vt.edu/. They have an upcoming National Coming Out Day, probably with loads of events. Another route is to just get more involved and network through those new friends. Odds are, the more social you generally are, the easier it will be find those other gay friends.
