Although you have great and positive things going on in your life, there's still no one to love and it sucks. There are lots of nearby places to go and things to do, but shy people don't make friends easily. More so, you hate having to go through the dating process and meeting men who a) use drugs, b) ask for naked pics first and foremost, c) finding out he, at 30, still lives with his mother. Wouldn't it be nice if people were just upfront with each other? Where do you meet compatible gay men in the Austin area anyway? These are just a couple of common questions people ask right before they join a free site in search of other singles online.
When you are ready to date, start by searching the personals for men seeking other gay men. It's a great idea, but you want the dating site you choose to have lots active singles nearby. Check out the profiles which you think could be worth dating and ask the guys to attend the next Meet and Greet. These events are excellent ways to socialize with other guys and have some fun. You would be able to chat at a local spot without fear of being alone with a stranger. Hopefully, you'll find a friendly male body, meeting all of your qualifications, including having his own residence.
