If you like someone enough, open your mind to other possibilities. Not everyone on a hookup app is looking for sex and even if they are, who gives a toss?
Spare us your sanctimony, your grace. This is fine — nothing wrong with a one-night-stand — as long as he realises that too. We place a lot of importance, misguidedly I feel, on not having sex on the first date. If you feel it between you, then go for it. The Guyliner has been writing about gay dating since and is also a columnist at Gay Times Magazine. See how the Soulmates team got on at The Cavendish, read our full […]. However, if you don't have an immediate answer for "Do you want to get married?
Contrary to popular belief, opinions are not like assholes, because in today's gay world, assholes are glorious and sexy and displayed prominently in photos sent to you from potential suitors. Opinions on a date are more like your lesbian best friend: We know she's important to you and we're glad you have her, but we have no idea why you'd want to introduce us to her on a first meeting and turn the evening into a serious downer. If you do opt to discuss current events, avoid anything so controversial it will destroy potential chemistry, like Crimea, Obama's job performance, or the relevance of HBO's "Looking.
Fashions change, so know the basics: No flip-flops, no shaving, and, even if it is after Memorial Day, absolutely no white underwear.

If you like the guy and want things to go well, put everything out on the table: HIV status, views on monogamy, and, for Florida residents, guns. It's a sign of a true gentleman if you walk him to his door and he says it's too soon for you to come inside. It's also more than likely a sign that he still lives with his on-again off-again ex. If, in the heat of the moment, you do find yourself in bed together after the date, remember to keep the foreplay going for at least 30 minutes. This allows ample time for intimate kisses, exploring each other's body, and for the Cialis to kick in.

17 Practical Gay Dating Tips for the New Age
Well Ben and Ken maybe you're the same person? I don't think it is any stretch when I observe that you hate republicans and you have systematically avoided the central question to my rebuttle. By so doing, it's also obvious that you prefer cheap smears and name calling to reasoned debate.
In the early days of the struggle for our equality, activists knew that silence equals death. They knew the way forward required that we communicate what we wanted, needed and why. Because of Ken and Ben twin brothers, maybe? Mark Steyn understands this In the march for equality, we all have a role to play! I cannot see how equality can be achieved while this community harbors such divisions. We cannot move forward while leaving Republicans behind. Great article! Shared with some friends. I see you caught the attention of the wingers because one has appeared on your commentary board.
What a judgmental and hetero-normative screed! Have you thought that someone just wants a long-term fuck bud? Or to get laid after a relationship is actually therapeutic? You still failed to answer the central question to my rebuttle, "If a gay Republican is not worthy of love and acceptance and collectively the community represented in this article rejects all gay republicans, is that community worthy of love and acceptance from the gay republican or his broader community, the GOP?
To put it in terms that you might understand, the absence of love is hate, so wasn't the article, in some part, really about hate and the prejudices of the author to begin with? I loved the article and thought you hit all of the important points. Yes, there are generalizations but in an article like this I would expect that.
At least he put something out there for gay men and first dates and not the usual crap we see around the Internet.
Grow Unstoppable Confidence
I read the ignorant and hostile remark made by Herman Nilsson and just about puked. Hollywood is saying IF a guy says he is "straight acting" and pretends or denies that he is gay, then the guy is engaging in internalized homophobia. I did not read Mr, Hollywood said republicans or anyone else could not be loved. And how can a person truly love another if they don't love themselves first. If a gay man supports rabidly anti-gay candidates, that says a lot about who they are. It's like a black person supporting political candidates who support a "southern strategy" or latinos supporting candidates who are anti-Hispanic.
For the record, I once dated a man just like this. It was terrible. He constantly made cracks against fellow gays, bragged how he supported like Rick Santorum and make sure he went to chic-fillet so that people would see the cup he was drinking out of. He was one of the most self-loathing gay men I have ever met. Not sure how long the author will let the hateful post Nillson stay up because it looks like someone is trying to flame the discussion.
I just wanted to be a voice here to push back against a political troll. I dated a guy who was and never saw him again. I pondered whether to make this post for the last day, but it has to be said - this post describes perfectly why Republicans should hate gays.
The advice in this article is reasonable, until you get to item 7 - he says he's straight acting, and another point is, "He identifies as a die hard republican and supports anti-gay candidates. Face it, gays come in all shapes, sizes, creeds, cultures and even political persuasions. In fact, gays have been out and organizing within the Republican Party for more than 35 years through the Log Cabin Republicans.
There are so many reasons why a gay would consider involving themselves in the GOP, would choose to organize in support of equality inside of the Republican Party and would strongly support a Republican Candidate - even one that you might consider to be anti-gay. For example, the "Give a Damn" campaign contrasts gay rights with the plight of starving kids in the third world and demands that if the picture of two men kissing on the left shocks you more than a picture of starving kids on the right you need to revise your view on immorality. What the author is suggesting in this article is that a gay republican is somehow not worthy of his love and acceptance, and continues to counsel that that a gay republican is not worthy of your love acceptance.

This of course begs the question, "If a gay Republican is not worthy of love and acceptance and collectively the community represented in this article rejects all gay republicans, is that community worthy of love and acceptance from the gay republican or his broader community, the GOP? Anyone who finds it silly must see themselves somewhere in 1 to 10 - if not in all of them! I think many could relate having dated with someone from each of these, if not numerous in one person! Mister Hollywood you rocked it with this article and hit all of the points I have messed up on over the years.
Thanks man! I thought this was a pretty good article, except for the frequent use of the word "Run! You don't have to run. You can walk away calmly. I just want to know who kisses someone while looking into their eyes. In my experience, people usually keep their eyes closed when kissing. Staring at each other that close would make you look cross-eyes to say the least.
It's hard to get to know someone if they can't be present. I especially love the reference to bars because it shows a preoccupation with drinking. And as a recovering alcoholic myself, I remember dating only a few months in and it was a disaster. I was still in an absolute cloud, and became utterly obsessed with the guy. In a way HE became my drug. And of course it didn't work out and of course I was devastated. You nailed a lot of these Mister Hottiewood. I am a recovering alcoholic with 15 years sober. I tell all of the people I sponsor that they need at least a year of sobriety before they can ever think of dating seriously again.
Love your articles and just Liked you on FB. I found a few generalizations here. Enough that maybe one of them should have been replaced with the opposite of 9.
