    You really can make internet dating work for you. Only go on dates with guys you think have relationship potential, after getting to know them online. Be willing to skip dates with hot sexy guys with zero relationship potential, as ultimately they are a waste of time. In my case, and for some other couples I know, we met on gay411.

    Why do gay guys compare themselves to straight guys who are forced to have a relationship in order to have regular sex? I bet many of them would be single forever if they could get away with having regular sex without commitment.

    well I am in the same shoes as you are. I have never had a normal relationship. But in my case the fact that I am not out plays a huge role.

    I'm no expert but I think you just have to chill and be as happy as you can. Just imagine what it will be like when you do find that special someone. The more you worry about something then the more you attract more of the same. Just chill and that special guy will show up.

    youarewhatyouare saidSo I think Im a pretty fun to be around person. I do have friends love going out,party on the weekend, but really serious during the week as Im pretty carreer-oriented.

    I'm almost 26 now and never really had a real long-term boyfriend. When you're a student and 22 years old you just figure out it's normal but I'm pretty stable and established now, and still I really dont find anyone. I dont even have a date in sight.

    I dont like internet dating websites, or going on grindr or manhunt. Those hey whats up whats ur dick size conversations are definitely not for me! So what do all gay guys do? Or are gay guys just single until they are like 30?

    so the question is : normal or not that Ive always been single in this (crazy) gay world?


    it's not abnormal, if that's what you're thinking. Also, many gay men "come out" later and start dating later than their straight counterparts, if that makes you feel any better icon_smile.gif. One of my friends is 34 and has never had a bf!

    Daas saidI met my partner Dalin at a local club. I was there for someone else but he didn't show. I got roped into joining a Wii bowling tournament because they were short one. I got paired with this cute asian guy and I seriously thought he had Aspergers because he kept quoting lines from movies. I got his number just because he was insistent that I have it.

    A couple of weeks later I had forgotten about it, was bored and called this number in my phone just to figure out who it was. We had an intelligent conversation, surprisingly. We decided to go out and things just kind of slowly worked out.

    So yeah, cute-meet happens. Go out, meet guys while volunteering, at social events, at pride, anywhere other guys go. Someone unexpected will come along and change your life.



    AWWWWWW.....

    I think it's somewhat normal, I had my first boyfriend at 25, and that lasted 2years. I can definitely relate with Internet dating and the use of grindr and manhunt as not the most reliable LTR tools out there. I think the trick is finding out what works for you; going to bars, joining GLBT oriented clubs, etc. It's hard but any opportunity you have to put yourself out there with a good guy, you got to take it.
