There was a drizzle of uneasy laughter from the men in line. These men weren't the living mannequins you see gliding on the roller skates of their good looks through Chelsea.
It was like a nightmarish game of dodgeball that would air on LOGO.
This is Little Gay Book, LLC's biggest event in New York City and we anticipate it will sell out.
I happened to be one of the first guys to register with the organizer, and I took the opportunity to grab a beer and watch the men herd into line to register like cattle to the slaughter. " the organizer asked one man, who responded with a nervous chuckle. To be blunt, most of the men on either side (including me) were average-looking -- sometimes aggressively so.“In terms of finding fulfilling or lasting relationships, gay and lesbian singles face the same challenges as straight singles. Com has ramped up it’s offering of lesbian and gay speed dating events to include seven new “themed” events.They need the same resources as heterosexuals, but comparable support just isn’t available,” explains Laurie Davis, Online Dating Coach and Founder of e Flirt New additions to the On Speed Dating menu are a “Gay Jock” night for athletic, gym-lovin’, sport-playin’ men, “Femme for Femme” speed dating for single, sexy, femme, lipstick lesbians, “Corporate America” night for professional gay singles and “Asian Persuasion” night for gay Asian men/women and the single men/women that LOVE them.“I’ve heard many gay singles say they wish their dating lives didn’t rely so heavily on succeeding in the bar scene.On Speed Dating and I both offer tried-and-true events and techniques that relieve social pressures,” explains Davis."I mean, I don't blame them, but it's not like I had a choice," I continued thinking to myself while mindlessly nodding along to what my fifth date was saying. Once everyone had registered, our organizer separated us into our respective groups. Whereas I tried to look as though I had just gotten off my fancy job as a writer, a majority of the men looked as though they had just left their shift at Aeropostale. Why were they dressed like that dude from high school who always tries to sell you knives when you run into him every trip back home?"The online 'bottoms' sign-up sheet was all filled up! If I wanted to sail with the boys on this gay Noah's ark, I had to maybe fib to myself a little." And look where that got me. If you learn anything from me at all, it's that you should always dress how you want to feel, not how you actually feel.(I'd like to go on record and say those men are horrible, and the human equivalent of a parfait.) The men here were normal dudes: mostly over 30, and mostly in custody of faces I almost instantly forgot. Have you ever been at a party and realized, with a cold sweat and a shiver of dread, that you were the smartest one in the room?It's happened to me once before; I realized that if I was the smartest person in the room, then we were all screwed.If you both indicate the same level of interest ("2nd date" or "Friendship,") you'll be matched & emailed contact info. (No worries if you don't want to receive text messages, I'll take care of you!) ALL AGES WELCOMED because you are conversing with women whose interests and age range match your criteria!!
