Maybe I'm just crotchety before my time, but I've become utterly repulsed by the company kept on grindr and similar apps for our phones. Most people on there are disinterested in personhood, etiquette, or any sort of relational intimacy. At the same time, where can someone go to get involved and connect with other gay men? My city doesn't have any lgbt centers or meeting groups during the year, and I don't have the gas money to go to LA every time I want to have conversations with other men.

I don't want to settle: I'm not even looking for love, just a meaningful relationship with another gay man.
