In today’s hyperconnected world, we have a lot more opportunities to find gay singles. While at one point your only options may have been the bar and the Internet, today there is much more opportunity. Of course, that doesn’t mean there aren’t challenges. However, if you are looking to find gay singles, the opportunity is particularly ripe, especially in big cities. Are you taking advantage of the big city?
- Locate And Explore The Gay Districts And Neighbourhoods
Take advantage of the gay districts that exist in many big cities. From Toronto’s The Village to Los Angeles’ West Hollywood, these gay-friendly neighbourhoods offer gay bars, boutiques and more; you never know who you might meet. Attend a gay-friendly comedy show. If you enjoy art, attend an LGBTQ art show (plus, you’ll already have shared interests). If you are more inclined toward sports and the great outdoors, search for gay-friendly hikes. Some range from a simple afternoon to a weekend affair.
- Attend LGBT Events/Volunteer At An LGBT Organization
Not only do many big cities host Pride week, but there are also smaller events designed for the LGBT community throughout the year. Simply search online for upcoming events. Get out of your comfort zone and strike up conversations. Similarly, another great way to find gay singles is to volunteer at an LGBT organization. This is particularly great because it means you share similar beliefs.
- Stay At Gay-Friendly Accommodations
Many big cities have gay-friendly accommodation — accommodations specifically designed for gay people. Many of these accommodations give you the opportunity to mingle with others. Whether you vacation in your own city or you are from a big city, take advantage of mingling at gay-friendly accommodations.
- Be Social In General
Overall, you just want to be as social as possible. This is the only way you are going to ever find gay singles. While you should take advantage of the many gay-friendly events and districts in big cities, also don’t limit yourself to these places. Put yourself out there. Don’t shy away from invitations. Network. Be social. Don’t let a lack of confidence or a fear of rejection prevent you from finding your match. Sure, it may not be easy at first, but the more you make an effort to strike up conversations, the easier it will be become.
