    This is tangential to your question, but here is a wikipeida article I found interesting. I figure the more choices you have, the more likely you are to find what you want.

    Statistically from more than three websites that I researched, at of all the cities in North America, Austin Texas ranks #1 for love, dating, friends, and relationships, while Kansas City is #1 for the worst for love, dating, friends, and relationships. I am not originally from Kansas City Missouri and this is why I am going to move out of this prison like state as soon as I finish college. Don't move to Kansas City, there is nothing here and nothing to do here! The people here are afraid of change, originality, and are very close-minded. It is probably one of the most backwards, racist, and negative cities that one could ever visit or reside in.

    New Hope, Pennsylvania is a very small gay friendly community known as the gay honeymooners' capital of the Northeast! whenever I date someone seriously I take them there! New Hope, Pa. have a small town atmosphere, and the natives seem very decent and friendly towards the gay populous!!


    The worst LTR places are usually the larger metropolis cities like New York City, Los Angeles, and Miami!! Miami being the sluttiest of them all!!

    Unfortunately, I think this is the case. I've had equal dating luck (or non-luck I should say) in Chicago as I had in the Chicago suburbs which are two polar opposite social climates.

    I don't think that there's much variation in terms of opportunity other than population - the more gay guys, the more chances you may find someone you like. However, it seems the more gay guys, the more chances they'll be bed-hopping in my experience. It's a hard call.

    Good luck to you!

    Austin is weird when it comes to dating. In terms of going on dates, yes, I think it's much easier than other cities since the guys here generally like to go out on them. Doesn't mean it will pan into an LTR. But by the same token, guys in Austin are also very comfortable with the discreet hook up.

    I think it just has to do with the age and demographics of the city. Austin in general is an anomaly of age. I know there are children in Austin, but I never see any. That includes teenagers. The youngest folk I see are always college kids. The city also has seniors, but I never see them either. For the most part, everyone here that you see downtown is between 20 and 50, which is a prime dating age.

    Funny.....I spent 13 years in KC before I left and I agree. Austin is where I moved to and although the people are much more friendlier here but after 8 mos , I am still struggling to make friends. Not really tried to date. More interested in friends. been told since it is a young college town, the young do well here. We'lll see.

    I get discouraged myself, LTR and Gay sometimes can be like "oil and water" BUT... I can assure you this... I know one location in Haverhill MA, thats TOTALLY into it. Need directions? icon_razz.gif

    I'd say that the San Francisco Bay area is pretty good for the relationships, but ... a lot of people are in transition here, so ... it can be challenging.

    I wouldn't go back to Madison, Milwaukee, or even Chicago. I find that people in the midwest polarize into either the bitchy, flamboyant queens or closeted, hypermasculine guys ... both of whom hate each other ... neither allowing for any in-between. I think people should just be allowed to be who they are.

    Also, Minneapolis, although known to be a haven for hot, gay boys, is notorious for hookups and blow-offs. Not a whole lot of relationships to be had there. :-/
