    Ok so this has probably come up before, but since I'm new here thought id start this topic.

    Kinda new to this whole thing, so I ask the question; where's the best place to meet new people who you could potentially go out with etc, and what's the best kind of way to approach people? How would you know 'what they're into' without being direct, if you're in a normal environment?

    Looking to see replies from the kind of 18-25 bracket, but everyone's welcome to join in the discussion icon_smile.gif

    Sorry DarkLight, no offence intended. Just was interested in a younger age bracket as it might be more applicable to my age range sort of thing, but as I stated I was happy to have a discussion with any members icon_smile.gif thank you for your input icon_smile.gif

    It's interesting that you ask for input from very young guys. But probably more important for you would be to get input from guys in the UK. Most of us here in the US would have no idea where a 21 year old would run into gays in the UK other than online. I would say that for online encounters, you have to actually meet in person before really getting a sense of the guy you are meeting.

    I believe this site actually has user write down their city and state. If you live in a very well-known town, that's good news for you because you can meet people that way.

    Damned if I know. I've been trying to figure it out for the last four months. I tried the whole online thing but didn't have much luck. HOWEVER, I live in a pretty small city (300 thousand people) and you could easily have better luck depending on where you live. A few times I glanced at the listings from Toronto and it looked like there were far more people there that I would have been potentially compatible with.

    I guess there are gay bars, but I'm not into those--power to you if you are. Gay community groups could be worth a try (complicated reasons why I'm not thrilled about that possibility). I've also been advised that just trying to get out there and make friends in general is a good idea. So I guess just try to get involved in some group relating to your interests (sadly, many of my interests are obscure and last time I did try getting involved in something it didn't go well). Finally, I've been told trying to be friends with girls is particularly handy as they might be willing to act as match-maker.

    I think what Cody meant by the age thing is that he wanted to know where to meet people in his age group -- and thus, directed the question at people from 18-25. I don't think he meant any offense to anyone.

    Well... 18 - 25. Hello college. Enough said. If you're not in college, enroll.
