Gay dating tips first date berrows journal dating
No matter your gender or sexual orientation, dating can seem like a minefield.
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.
Whether we’re into bears, jocks or geeks, sometimes our narrow search criteria holds us back.
With so many questions, it’s hard to focus on actually getting to know your date.
We’re reducing men to body parts and stats; we need to cut it out.
When you start dating, don’t go to places you bar-hopped during your bachelor days.
“There was no spark” usually suffices if you can’t think of anything more constructive, as people rarely question it.
We place a lot of importance, misguidedly I feel, on not having sex on the first date.
