Gay dating advice mature men
As far as you’re concerned, this is Day One – only wasteland came before it.
Yes, you know what you like, but if you’re looking for a relationship, it’s not just about what goes where and who’ll be standing on their head or whatever.
If you like someone enough, open your mind to other possibilities.
Don’t rule someone out just because you’re both bottoms, for example; nothing is set in stone.
Rejection can be a useful experience because it teaches you a bit about yourself and the guys you’re dating.
Rejecting someone because of their appearance is only natural, but they don’t need to know that’s your reason.
You don’t really want to run into one of your old flames – or one of theirs – and it’s good to go somewhere fresh to you both, free of distractions or associations with other dates.
Yes, plenty of us have been around a bit, but don’t let it play on your mind when on a date with a new guy.

While the common dating ‘rules’ – not that I believe in rules – can apply to anybody, there are perhaps a few things we, as gay guys, need to pay a little more attention to. We whinge that we can’t find the right man, or never get a second date, but the usual reason is we’re not looking hard enough in the first place.
Whether we’re into bears, jocks or geeks, sometimes our narrow search criteria holds us back.
