Make A Bold Move To Meet Other Gay Men

The move was brilliant and carefully calculated. A man sat alone studying at the bar of a bookstore cafe. Another guy scoped him out several times while circling the magazine racks. The single studier (originally at the bar) saw an open table and proceeded to pick up his things to move. The onlooker saw this as an opportunity and moved in for the kill, like a fat rat running from the shadows on McDonald's trash day.

He slowed his pace as he approached, asking the first guy if he could help him move his things. The book nerd politely refused, but the onlooker wouldn't take no for an answer. He continued his flirtatious conversation and without offering again, moved a stack of papers to the new table for his new prospect. As the study guy sat at his new table, the onlooker delivered the papers, sat next to him and started a conversation.

Sound a bit forward? You bet it does, but this man's refusal to sit against the wall like the class nerd at a middle school dance led to an unexpected study date. What happened afterward, only these two can tell.

More often than not, we gay men leave our love lives up to fate- waiting to be approached. Take life by the magazine racks and get the man you want! The worst thing that can happen is a few rejections. And what are they compared to the potential for hot steamy love?

Here's how you can meet other gay men and go from a lusting lurker to a dating machine.
