So why on earth would you ignore such a great tool?
Certainly, there are pros and cons to online dating, but with the right coaching and guidance, a person can have great success.
The profile for Guy #1 may go something like this: I am an athletic jock looking for fun. You must practice ballet beneath the full moon when the new moon falls on a Tuesday… Guy #1 and Guy #2 may have nice photos and stats, but both speak in ultimatums and mandates. If we attract what we are and if we become what we think about, I’d like to manifest the gentleman who is simple and joyous.
I always say get to know your potential new partner as much as possible before ever hopping in bed.Real, lasting relationships are based on shared interests and values…not just sex.The cliché that all gay men want is a quick hookup isn’t true.In fact, only 24% of all singles say they’re only looking for sex.Because you only get one chance to make a good first impression and seeing as how over 65% of all gay men admit that they believe in love at first sight……I’d say you’d better make sure you get that first impression right! This can be a tough one because generally men like to move fast (gay or straight), and with two men instead of just one slowing things down can feel a bit like trying to stop an out of control train careening down the tracks……but trust me, it’s worth the effort.
Once sex and hormones are introduced to a relationship, the water is officially muddied and complicated.
So, for the sake of not overcomplicating things or reinventing the wheel…I’m here to tell you that finding a mate is far more simple than you probably think it is.
Take a recent statistic like this for example: did you know that a whopping 88% of all single gay men are actively searching for a romantic partner?
So if that’s what you’re running into, you might just be looking in the wrong places.
First thing’s first: delete your profile on Grindr.
Given that, my first bit of advice is for everyone, no matter which side of the plate they swing from: Don’t Overcomplicate Things!
