    At a nightclub? On a Blind Date? Can’t be that hard, right?

    Since I work at a bar, I get to meet a lot of really cute guys. Most of them turn out to be jerks. You can almost never trust men you meet at bars. Straight or gay, they always seem to have the same kind of attitude. I’ve seen it happen to plenty of people.

    Eh, I think it’s hit or miss. You have loud music, drunk people, in most cases a smokey atmosphere.
    I would say anywhere you would feel most comfortable in. I met a guy I dated for a year at an backyard poolhall. It was casual, some people were drinking, playing games, and most socializing. I wouldn’t suggest a cluttered place.

    Yea, I wouldn’t recommend a busy place either. The only way to see if you’re going to hit it off is with good conversation.

    I met one of my ex boyfriends at a church. Well, it was after a mass but it was a social setting where we could mingle with each other. I was surprised to find another gay man but we were discrete about our flirting and exchanged numbers before we left.

    me too, bud. I would think church would be the last place you’d find anything except guilt. And maybe a staph infection.

    I bet that could’ve ended badly in front of church-goers if you practice a more traditional religion. Good for you!

    It was definitely an awkward situation at first. At the time we thought we were in some alternate universe for us to have met at a church but we both agree to try and get to know each other elsewhere. After the social, we were able to make our own plans and hang out. Worked out, for the most part 🙄

    I met a guy at at recent thanksgiving get together. It was a coworker + guest potluck and I met a “guest.” It was a pretty cool set up, we’ve text back and forth and our mutual friend has been pretty supportive about us hanging out!

    I recently had some luck meeting new guys using a dating app and then dabbin into a dating site. I actually compared the two and found a few of the guys were on both of them, like me.
