Restaurant Review: Vico
It’s not always easy to find a long-term partner on the gay dating scene, particularly if you have a clear idea of what you want in a man. Bars and clubs in the US tend to be more for fun than the future and not everyone wants to combine their social, romantic and professional lives. But there is one place where it is possible to make that long-term view a reality – and that’s online.
If and when you do have more time, you can always use our 'Have you met...' search function to seek out additional profiles. What's more our dating agency is here to help you get the most out of our service throughout the entire process of finding love, starting with our handy guide to online dating, available with our apps or on desktop. From sending the first messages to getting ready for your first date, we here to help get your love life off the ground.
Professional Men Seeking Men
We can be a very picky bunch. 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. Having fixed ideas of what you want – which usually boil down to looks and little else – could be standing in your way of meeting some great guys. It’s time to think outside the box, look past the beards or muscles, and take chances.
While there are a lot of gay dating sites for men seeking men out there, not all of them cater to those guys who are seriously searching for a lasting relationship. EliteSingles is different. We believe that a long term relationship requires two people to really gel, which is why we prioritize an intelligent matchmaking process and create connections between our users that we're confident can go the distance.
In many practical ways, gay dating in the US this year is the easiest it’s ever been. All across the country, and particularly in big cities like New York, San Francisco and Washington DC, gay men, lesbian women, and LGBT singles are finding love and settling down together. Yet, easier overall doesn’t always mean easier on an individual level. If you’ve been single for a while it can be all too easy to view tales of lasting love and marriage as some sort of sign for an urban relationship myth, meant only for the very handsome, the very rich or the very lucky! Rest assured, there are plenty of men seeking men just like you out there, who long for a lasting relationship too - we can help you find them, and strike up a chat.
This is becoming a bigger issue in the gay dating world. All this liberation and equality is leading to increased bigotry among us. If you’re white, don’t say you’re “really into black guys”. What does that even mean? You’re objectifying a person with no thought for what else he might have to offer. You’re saying, “You tick a box, you’ll do” like they’re not a person, but a means to satisfy your kink. While you’re checking your racism, think about the way you talk to other guys who aren’t just like you. “Older men are really hot” is nowhere near as serious as racism, and it might seem like a compliment, but this guy doesn’t want to be defined by his age, any more than you’d expect someone to fancy you because of your postcode or shoe size. We’re reducing men to body parts and stats; we need to cut it out.
Some guys are going on dates to meet the love of their lives, others aren’t quite sure what they’re looking for, while others are definitely after just one thing. This is fine – nothing wrong with a one-night-stand – as long as he realises that too. There’s nothing worse than a romantic evening followed by a great night in the hay, which leads to unanswered texts because you couldn’t admit you were only ever looking for a one-off. You might not care, but consider your date’s feelings too.
We place a lot of importance, misguidedly I feel, on not having sex on the first date. Whether we’re reluctant to perpetuate the stereotype that gay men are promiscuous, or tell ourselves boys who give it up on the first date are less desirable, we certainly think too much about this one. The idea that men who put out aren’t good enough to take home to meet our mother is nonsense. If you feel it between you, then go for it. Sex alone won’t ruin everything, believe me, plenty of other things can go wrong.
Dating Tips For Gay Men
No matter your gender or sexual orientation, dating can seem like a minefield. Sometimes we meet the wrong people, choose a bad venue or fall head over heels with someone who just wants to be friends. 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.
Many gay dating sites and apps, like Grindr, have a bit of a bad reputation, perfect for casual encounters and not much else, it's difficult to know where to turn when the time has come and you're ready to get serious about gay dating online. Enter EliteSingles. Our members are all here looking for lasting love and deeper connection, and since our customer care team verify each and every new profile, you can approach your matches knowing they're well-intentioned singles who are genuinely compatible with you.
