More times than not, you'll attract the type of guy that's attracted to the signals you're sending. So, if you're meeting the wrong type of guys or the same type , try changing your attitude. If you don't normally smile, try giving guys a quick grin. If you give off an air of arrogance, try loosening up a bit.
A little self-reflection and image adjustment can go a long way. Fine tune your search. How can you find Mr. Right if you don't have a vision of what he looks like? Make a list of the qualities you like in a guy. This may sound like a silly exercise, but a few minutes with a pad and paper can help you focus on finding the right man for you.
Not long ago I wrote down the hair color, height range, ethnicity, and build of my ideal date and it's amazing how many guys I meet that fall within my "list. What kind of personality or demeanor would you like him to have? What about his family life? Keep your options open, though.
Sometimes the cosmos have a way of surprising us. Go where they go. You wouldn't look for pasta sauce in the frozen food aisle of the grocery store would you? Of course not. So why do most gay men look for specific types of guys in the wrong places. If you like a certain type of guy, go where those types of guys go. I'd love to say the world is an integrated utopia, but people tend to hang out with others with similar backgrounds or interests.
Let's say you're looking for a guy that has an interest in theater; then join a local theater group or hang out at local venues frequented by theater lovers. If your dream lover is a body builder, then spend more time at the gym, because more than likely that's where he'll be most of the time.
Seek and enjoy! Are you the life of the party or do you like to sit on the sidelines? Most gay men wait for their knight in shining Tiffany to come and swoop them up from the bar stool.
You look, make eye contact and even flirt a bit, but do you ever make a move? Who doesn't want a handsome guy to come up and talk to them? Since everyone's waiting to be approached, there's no one doing the approaching; which is why it's not uncommon to go to a gay party and see everyone standing around in their own corners like at a middle school dance. Practice getting out of you comfort zone. Find a guy you like and try starting a conversation.
To many gay men, the thought of doing this is terrifying, but with practice it will get more comfortable. Find something in common. I understand that people are in very different places in their coming-out process when they are Each guy is at a different place in their gay maturity. Though I respect that, I still want to find someone in a similar place of coming out.
It can feel like babysitting otherwise.
Even though they're absolutely correct, maybe my idea of fun is not being single. I know what 'wild and crazy fun' is out there, but I already got it out of my system. I feel that I'm ready to settle down. So yeah, I have every right to want to be with someone. They're too busy partying, going crazy, sleeping around, or being too narcissistic to care about someone else.
I feel like a lot of the younger gays lack empathy and just don't possess the qualities necessary to have a healthy relationship. Everyone seems to have a few screws loose that I've met, and it just doesn't end up working out.
In the past couple years, I've dated older men because I wanted a solid, responsible man in my life, but these dates only helped me realize that I'm not ready to be comfortable yet. And while I'm not dating older men now, I can't help but feel immediately disconnected from people my own age. But I want to make one thing clear: There seems to be this assumption, especially when you are more attracted to older guys, that you want something from them because you are a poor twentysomething with no direction.
Not true. We are all trying to figure out how we are going to stage the rest of our lives. So, it takes an extra couple steps to find someone in a similar stage of life with a schedule that works with yours, with similar goals, and who is willing to make a commitment.
Everything is ever-changing. I'm so tired of going on one date with a guy and then he thinks we are an item. And, in general, I despise this notion we have in our culture today that you have to be practically already in a relationship to date. After seeing an attractive guy, you have to make small talk. Only when you have learned about the person do you ask them on a date.
It's not that serious. If you see a guy you like, ask him out. If it doesn't work out, then it doesn't work out. Let's chat there later.

He later did find me on there later, but I ignored him simply because You get two men together, something is always bound to happen. But, that can be a complicated issue.
I've been on many first dates sealed with sex at the end of the night. I feel like a lot of gay people, not all, feel like something's missing otherwise, but sex is definitely like the goodnight kiss rather than something uber romantic. And most apps are hookup apps. It's just too easy to get a fix.
