    how do you meet guys if you aren't into the gay scene? Also, you don't want a flamer? Also, you aren't exactly "out" to anyone except a few friends?


    and craigslist is kinda dirty, amirite?

    I found good luck with Yahoo Personals and Match.com

    I also joined a gay chorus and a gay outdoors (hiking, canoing, camping) club.

    A friend of mine had luck with a gay ski group and a gay basketball group (he's a very sporty gay)... It's easy becuase, in New England, there's a gay club for everything... a gay rugby team, a gay bowling league...

    So, check around in your area.... Houston's a huge city... there's bound to be some great groups/teams/clubs you can join and make friends... and even if there's nobody to date in the club, they have friends who have friends....

    it's all about networking and meeting as many gays as you can.

    Plus, there are a few gay Houston OTers on here... maybe they can help you...

    there are lots of different types of scenes, it's not all just one thing.

    for example, a bear bar is a lot different from a hipster bar.

    imo, as biased as it may be, bear bars are lot more relaxed, less attitude and your less likely to find a "flamer" (as you put it).
    even if you don't like bears, at least you can make friends...and making friends is probably the best way to meet more new people (and potential mates)

    or you can use other websites and just ask to meet people for coffee/lunch/drinks.

    :rofl: how did you find a gay chorus?

    And I live in the heights, the gayest part of houston. I guess if I opened my eyes, I could find one or two...

    The internet is this amazing new invention... you can find just about anything on there...

    here's my chorus: www.nhgmc.com

    After three years in the chorus, I'm the President of the chorus now.

    Here's the link to the gay men's chorus of Houston: http://www.gmch.org/default.asp?id=130

    I think you should give some bars a chance.

    We have a straight guy in our chorus.
    He joined because his son is gay and retarded so he can't drive
    So, the dad had to drive his son to rehearsals and decided to sing with us too, instead of sitting in the car for three hours every Tuesdayn night.

    Im in the same boat...I have no idea how to meet guys :\ I dont wanna insult someone by asking if they're gay so I kinda just use body movement and eyes to let guys know if im interested and leave it up to them to make a move or not....I tried sites like manhunt and its just mostly 40-50 yr old guys lookin for a nut

    Well, it depends on the bar...the one I go to the most is more of a club than a bar, and so I like to dance, but there's also a patio in the back where it's nice to chill with my friends.

    The real answer is, obviously, you do what you would do at any normal bar, only at a gay bar you get to assume that other guys are gay.

    You are not in the same boat with me. YOU are going to mexico where you will have hot sex for a week with a closeted friend turned bf. All my gay friends moved to Florida and I get nothing. :squint:

    You have the life I want right now. :wtc:

    .

    just relax and enjoy yourself.

    when going out alone i just usually sit at the bar and talk to the other people sitting there or the bartender.
    eventually you might be introduced to more people or you can, omg, hit on a cute guy :noes:

    Why try and find a relationship when you can have so many pleasurable experiences without the responsibility?
