There are so many outlets where single gay men can get acquainted with other guys, and the most convenient of all is going online. Obviously, there's nothing simpler than tapping into a browser and unearthing the diverse range of gay talent waiting to be untapped. But you still need to ask yourself key questions before getting carried away.
What type of gay relationship are you looking for? There's no point in connecting with another guy if this person is only looking for casual encounters. Unless that's your own aspiration. So think carefully before signing up to certain websites. If you're secretly seeking a gay man who might turn out to be a long-term love interest, there's no point visiting websites geared towards no-strings-attached affairs. The degree of compatibility should be your first question. Once you begin exchanging regular messages, you'll be able to suss out their degree of commitment.
Surely one of the most crucial questions of all concerning online gay relationships, this is deciding when the moment to take the chemistry you have developed within the comfort of your web browser and test if it will transfer to the outside world. ‘How will you know the time it right?' That's pretty straightforward. A moment will arise when the more pertinent question is, ‘why shouldn't you?' It'll just feel like the logical next step.
‘Where should you meet?' If you've been getting to know each other via in-depth messaging, you'll have formed a picture of your prospective partner's loves and passions, whether that's trips to the seaside or nights at the theatre or any of a thousand and one possibilities. Part of the fun of the early stages of a gay relationship is asking these questions together and seeing what sorts of suggestions get sparked between you.
