    I am relocating from Los Angeles, to a town in New Hampshire (close to Boston) to be closer to my family. I took myself off the market for a while, but I want to start dating again once I settle in.

    Any advice - what's the dating scene like these days?

    For you, it should be fine.

    But if you're in the suburbs and childless, not a veteran of a certain age with a Legion Hall nearby and (most notably) sexually unavailable, you may as well be dead.

    Don't bother with the smartphone apps. Total waste of time. Well, not total. It's a good time killer. Lots of eye candy. But not a good place to find quality people. icon_biggrin.gif

    I live in the suburbs and I'm genuinely astounded every day that I'm still alive.

    a recent government agency has determent there are 2% in the general population. This number is a little low but you could experience a higher ratio of gay datable men outside the suburbs.

    love finds its ways into your life through odd paths. Consistently be the confidant and loving person. Be patient it should take some time. Best of luck.

    If you are close to Boston you shouldn't have trouble meeting smart, good guys. My advice is to advertise yourself on a few web sites, including here, and be honest about who you are and what you like to do, not sexually but for daily living and entertainment. Be fairly specific. Mention a few preferences (i.e.: smart, lean, squash player, whatever). And see who it attracts. Be open to surprising possibilities. I never would have conjured up my partner in a million years and we are perfectly suited to each other. Seven years next month.
