So, I believe the reason online meet up/dating is so popular among gay people is, because gay/bi/bi-curious men in journal suck at communicating when it comes face to face. With online ads things are pretty cleared up and there are no games (except craigslist flakes). For example, there is this guy at my gym I saw few weeks ago, but nothing serious crossed my mind. He however, kept checking me out. Every time I caught him looking, he quickly turned other way, I thought it was kinda cute. Then, past week or so it became pretty obvious that he is interested. Glances were longer, If I am warming up at bike he comes right next to me and starts stretching (2 occasions). By now I am interested and wondering why isn't he making a move. So, today I am doing cardio. A random man in the corner, my mat in the middle and he comes and gets the mat right next to mine. We stare another glance. Man leaves, I move to the corner now and he quickly moves his mat next to me as well. I thought it's gone far enough, so I start a conversation that does he goes to so and so college? He said yeah and tell me his program. But the way he told me was so, full of attitude, no smile in the conversation and face had kinda angry expression. After that I worked out for another 5 mins or so and left, he never asked anything back. That was a big turn off and I am no longer interested. May be he's frustrated/ confused that I make him curious and bring gay tendencies in him. Anyways gay or not If a stranger talks to me I at least reply pleasantly. Hence the reason, the overload of online dating in the gay community and all the side effects (deceases) that come with it. What do you guys think?
