Gay men dating advice 2016 internation dating site members
Not only is this far too prescriptive, you also run the risk of coming across as overly negative.
Say what you like to do, who you want to be with, and why people should date you. This is becoming a bigger issue in the gay dating world.
We place a lot of importance, misguidedly I feel, on not having sex on the first date.
Whether we’re reluctant to perpetuate the stereotype that gay men are promiscuous, or tell ourselves boys who give it up on the first date are less desirable, we certainly think too much about this one.
Online dating is for everybody, and it works especially well for singles in niche communities.
All this liberation and equality is leading to increased bigotry among us.
If you’re white, don’t say you’re “really into black guys”. You’re objectifying a person with no thought for what else he might have to offer.
Sometimes we meet the wrong people, choose a bad venue or fall head over heels with someone who just wants to be friends.
While the common dating ‘rules’ – not that I believe in rules – can apply to anybody, there are perhaps a few things we, as gay guys, need to pay a little more attention to. We whinge that we can’t find the right man, or never get a second date, but the usual reason is we’re not looking hard enough in the first place.
