5 Tips For Gay Men Dating In The 21st Century

Dating is already a struggle in this century because even though you have so many people at your disposal from social media on online dating apps; you still have actually to meet up with them in real life.

 
It’s also a lot harder to stay committed with everyone in your business and the constant reminder that a hottie is about 1 mile from your current location.

 
1. Turn Off Notifications:

 
If you just so happen to walk around with your volume up and notifications on then you’re in for some awkward situations, especially when your date understands where that ding sound is coming from. Be considerate and turn off the notifications and sound when you’re on the date because no one wants to be reminded that the person they’re spending time with is also talking to multiple other people online.

 
Even if the case is the same for them, it doesn’t make anyone feel any better being reminded of that with little sounds dinging a new message or match so just shut the whole thing off while you’re at it.

 
2. Don’t Add-On Social Media:

 
As routine and natural it has become to add someone you’re talking to on social media before the first date, you probably shouldn’t do that just yet. There is room for error and a slight chance the date won’t go extremely well, so you’re faced with the uncomfortable decision of deleting them or not.

 
Instead just wait until the first date is over before making the next move on social media even though I highly recommend stalking, but adding them is a different story.

 
3. Be Prepared For Labels:

 
Today’s world is based on memes, slang words, and phrases that majority of people have no idea what they mean but they are still being used. Don’t be alarmed if you’re instantly labeled in the gay world with a new name that sounds offensive but is just an explanation of what kind of gay guy category you fit under.

 
Most of the time it turns out to be humorous and if you’re a little taken back try to throw a label name right back at them, proving you got the game yourself.

 
4. Keep Your Opinions To Yourself:

 
This one is a little tricky because there is a fine line in expressing who you are and what interests you to blatantly shoving your beliefs down your dates throat. Not everyone is going to have the same idol or viewpoints as you so don’t get worked up and offended if you have opposing beliefs.

 
Slowly but surely you can start to let your guard down, but dating is supposed to be fun so find out if you have chemistry first before diving into all of the intense stuff.

 
5. Foreplay Is Key:

 
This is where you establish if there can be passion behind the sexual attraction. There was obviously something there if you’re both in bed together but those moments before getting intimate where you share passionate kisses and get to know one another’s body is where a connection can be made.

 
So many people are in a hurry to get the party started instead of taking the time and dragging out the pleasure. ¬†And if you’re looking to meet someone new tonight then you should try meetgays.com which makes it fast and free to meet single gay guys near you looking to mingle.
