    I've never met a guy in real life, I've just come out now and want to hit up the dating scene, but I have no clue wtf to say to a guy, or even how to spark up a random conversation with someone I don't know, Im a bit shy at times so that doesn't help much either icon_sad.gif

    Exactly, saaaaame question...

    I've found that the only some what efficient way is via internet, but so many people on the internet are so sketchy and are either creeps/liars, or just want to hook up...

    (I hope I don't offend anyone by the next comment) And I find myself more attracted to masculine men, and so meeting "straight acting" ( I know, I know, I don't like using that term either, but it best gets the point across without having to explain myself) guys is really hard because, well, I can't tell whether the guy is interested or not.

    Which nicely leads into my other problem regarding the whole "make eye contact" thing to find out if they are interested, and if that is the case, then I swear like, every decent looking guy is gay then; when I see a hot guy, I just naturally take a look at them, and almost every time they will also make eye contact with me - and not just a casual glance. What the efffffff, there must be an easier way.

    I find saying something stupid is a nice ice breaker. Like if they catch you looking at them. Say sorry I wasn't staring at you but I will if you want me to. It's dumb and it breaks the ice.

    Since you're both 18 and adorable, my question is how far is London from Toronto? icon_wink.gif

    Why don't you guys just get together. That would be nice and simple.

    go volunteer at local theatre or dance or whatever "gay" place, you are bound to at least make acquaintances that are gay.

    Well, how do you meet anyone? Take out the sex or love anticipation and do it the same way you'd talk with any stranger.
