Current situation

Unread postby IBlakey2930 » 24 July 2020, 22:45

It has taken me a while to finally come round to and get myself used to the fact of being Gay regards sexuality. I have only reached this conclusion recently.

I'm now beginning to ask myself, and others who know, how best to go forward. One of the things which I'm commonly told is to find a group of friends first (men obviously) or mixed LGBT etc which I could become friendly with a man from.

I have tried using Facebook, and spoke with a charity local to me. The results that I have received have been limited due to the charity's nature, Facebook groups being unreliable and no local groups on (nearest Gay Friends group is quite a distance and requires payment for membership).

I myself am suffering with vulnerability both sexuality and health wise.

I was wondering if anyone could help me with this as I have been told by family and friends that the best way into a potential Gay (or Straight) relationship is to be friends first.

I'm looking for any suggestions, advice and recommendations for how to make Gay friends in a safe, secure and vulnerable risk free way - both online and offline.

Hi Blakey.

You've come to the right place for making friends online. You might want to start by telling us a bit more about yourself. There is a questionnaire at the top of the introductions forum which you may want to fill in. Whether or not you choose to fill it in, you'll find there's a great bunch of guys on this site so get posting and you'll make some friends in no time.

Maybe the attempts have been limited because the UK is also being severely impacted by the pandemic? I wouldn't go to meet-ups right now, I'm sure many others share my feelings lol.
