What can a young gay man do to socialize with others in a small town?

Q:What can a young gay man do to socialize with others in a small town?
I’m in college and I don’t know more than three other gay people, I feel like I left a soup of *** people to go to the desert.


1.Much the same as it is for anyone: just be yourself. It’s healthy to have friends whose life isn’t solely defined by sexuality, as true friends accept you for who you are, no matter what the exterior. It’ll also broaden your horizons from just those three people. There will be others; but not obviously so.

2.put an ad in the paper, you know you want it! “catcher would like to meet pitcher”. you will get some calls.,, hope that helps.


Your say its like your in the desert.

One day you will be able to return to the green jungle, as you enjoy the fruits of your labor you will know it was worth the effort.


These days most people will quite happily accept you whatever your sexual orientation. If they don’t they are not worth knowing!
Be honest with yourself and others, you could be pleasantly surprised how many *** guys are around!
Otherwise you could try internet dating!
There are some you could try:

Surely your college has more than a few people…ask and see if you can start a gay/straight alliance at the school… Or, put an advertisement in the school paper listing a P.O. Box for an address with an ‘anonymous’ name…like gay Students of ‘ ‘ College…or something like that…

You shouldn’t worry about simple things such as this, just be yourself, people will accept you for who you are. You also shouldn’t let the people that aren’t so accepting get to you, people will love you for who you are and that’s al you’ll need :)
