How do you win the dating game if you’re a gay man?
After many years of serial monogamy, Dave Singleton went to the front lines to find out, exploring the lives of other gay men who found themselves on the dating fast track with guys they’d met from work, at the gym or bars, and, increasingly, on the Internet. Thus, The Mandates was born—a laugh-out-loud but completely true set of rules about the making (or breaking) of men’s romantic relationships.

Boyfriend 101: A Gay Guy's Guide to Dating, Romance, and Finding True Love
From Publishers Weekly
Professional counselor Sullivan supplements his breezy advice with anecdotes from his clients to coach gay readers looking for Mr. Right. As the "101" title implies, this is a beginner's guide with Sullivan starting at the ground level ("What is a date?"). His baby-steps approach covers potential opening lines for small talk with strangers; a three-page list of qualities to help narrow the focus of what your Mr. Right needs to possess; and locations for running into eligible men. Sullivan's banal scripted "one-minute encounters" should encourage even the most tongue-tied that it doesn't take clever observations to open a conversation. Some of Sullivan's advice seems so rudimentary that it seems designed for shut-ins rather than someone new to gay dating. One of the things not to say on a first date is "My father was a drunk," while Sullivan says men like to hear "Your butt is awesome," "I'm so proud of you" and "You make fabulous coffee." Sullivan's advice is more constructive when dealing with relationships: dating someone with a different HIV status; integrating your "inner teenager"; working through internalized homophobia; and suggested communication strategies for couples. The book ends with a useful resource guide that lists online matchmaking services, gay organization links and reference directories

The modern gay man is his own best friend, has healed his inner child, is in touch with the warrior within, has memorized the Kama Sutra, and owns a little black book that would make Casanova jealous.

From the basics ("What is a husband and why do I want one?") to the advanced course ("In-laws-how not to kill them"), this is the everything-you-need-to-know guide. From blind dates ("Hint: Never let Mom set you up") to dress ("A thong is always wrong!") to avoiding pathetic opening lines ("Care to lambada?"), Patrick Price leads you past the pitfalls and pratfalls of landing the (nearly) perfect man.
