Attend community happenings and events where gay men will be represented in greater numbers. These include things like gay pride parades and parties, talks, groups, and other activities that are held at LGBT community centers. Events held by the gay community are great ways to meet all types of single people. For example, in Chicago we have a summer festival called Market Days where the local gayborhood is filled with booths featuring crafts, not-for-profit organizations, commercial businesses marketing their services and products, and an entertainment stage with singing acts and other performers.
Check out your local newspaper or gay publications to learn what events may be popping up in your community in the near future so you can participate. Gay speed dating events, drag queen shows, workshops and classes with gay topics, gay sporting leagues, MeetUp.
Individuals who are on the shy side or struggle with social anxiety do well in these settings because they offer a built-in structure that takes the pressure off having to spontaneously mingle in an unfamiliar and potentially uncomfortable environment.

What Gay Students in High School and College Should Know
What frame of reference can he possibly claim???? I rather like Davey. I met him for the first time at the SF Pride Parade and he was a decent fellow. He interviewed the people in my group we build a rather elaborate space for viewing the parade and he stopped by with his camera crew. Due to a glitch, he stayed with us for about ten minutes and he was charming. I am not some young muscle boy either, I am 56 and grossly overweight, but he was just a doll and treated me very well.

JungleBoi blondella: Sebizzar Bee Gaga: Bee Gaga Sebizzar: Billy Budd I like him. Lvng1tor blondella: James Hart Bee Gaga: Bee Gaga James Hart: Here's why: You're going to a new place.
You're going to have lots of new responsibilities. You're probably going to be living away from home, possibly far away. You're going to make lots of new friends. You're going to find lots of new clubs and activities to join. You're also going to learn just how to manage all the responsibilities and privileges being "free" from your family has. And yeah, all that sounds awesome. So, if your transition to college is going to be busy enough as it is, why add the extra stress of finding a guy on top of all that? I was kind of where you were, except I was more worried about making friends rather than finding a boyfriend.
And the one piece of advice I got that I stuck to and really helped me was to just not worry about it. Focus on everything else: If you keep yourself busy with everything else, not only will you be too caught up with the other things to worry about being lonely, but you'll also make friends and network in the process. And through that networking is how you're eventually going to meet a guy anyway, right? I'm sure joining whatever LGBT group you've got on campus just helps with that. All that said, keep in mind that by going to college, your "fish pond" becomes waaaaay larger.
There are tons more people - consequently tons more gay guys - for you to meet.
How to Meet Gay Guys (Without Grindr)
It really is an opportunity to find people that connect with you. I find in high school I had a lot of friends, but none of them were really "close". Here at university, I probably have the same if not less friends, but a lot of them are closer because we share the same interests. Jun 4, Jul 8, Messages: If you just get to know people and find people with common interests, you'll find yourself regularly bumping into gay guys.
So unless you go to LGBT, where you will definitely find lots of gay guys, you meet them just like you meet everyone else! Feb 3, Messages: I suppose it is true that I'll encounter more gay people in the larger "fish pond" of college. Budder, that's some good advice, I guess instead of seeking it out I'll play it cool and keep myself available.
It's true when they say that people can randomly meet xD. Oct 29, Messages: Missouri Gender:
