Rules to successful dating dating sites san fran
How do you win the dating game if you’re a gay man?
After many years of serial monogamy – and in the early years of the exploding online dating phenomenon – Dave Singleton went to the front lines to find out, exploring the lives of other gay men who found themselves on the dating fast track with guys they’d met from work, at the gym or bars, and, increasingly, on the Internet.
It also means every night is “date night.” So the way it used to work—with time to plan what you’d wear, where you’d take her, and so on—has changed. Keep a change of clothes at work, along with some deodorizing wipes and mouthwash, because who knows what’s in store.
From the author: “My own experience and the experiences of other men have been funny, poignant, sometimes painful. We’ve come a long way, but we obviously still have a long way to go until we have full equality as well as as full understanding of norms and traditions within our own community.
It was my intent to bring a sardonic, funny voice to the topic – to laugh and learn from the many common experiences we all have or will share. I’ve read many of the books by psychologists on gay relationships, and though they were helpful, I wanted a book with a more accessible approach, with men’s stories told in their own voices. But I know that dating trends and norms aren’t static.
This is the common and heinous "B-b-but I was only joking" defense so popular among passive-aggressives everywhere.
In front of dates I barely knew, I've had "friends" jokingly point out the social faux pas I made years ago, the disastrous last relationship I had (which they laughingly referred to as Nine Minutes), and the small scar on my leg that they continued to find so fascinating.
These friends act under the guise of being your "agents," ostensibly to build you up and sell you and your attributes to the new guy.
