Sometimes I wish I could transform into a chubby 34 yr old, with a beer gut, a crew cut, the whole nine yards. Because I really, really like the outdoors. But have you ever been on gayoutdoors.org? If I joined, I would probably be the youngest person on the entire site. No joke.
Honestly, I have a hard enough time relating to people my own age. I don't know what I would talk about to a twenty-nine year old. Besides, I'm not sure they'd really want to drag along an (almost) nineteen year old.
I like the idea of doing stuff I like with other gay people. Call me prejudiced, but I can only take so much heterosexuality. I'm tired of going on kayaking and rafting trips and having literally everyone besides me have hookups, crushes, and drama. I'm not saying those are good things. I'm just tired of being invisible.
That is by far my least favorite thing about being gay. For heterosexuals, the dating pool is about half the population. But it's different if you are gay.
If you're a gay in America, you get the roughly 3.5% who are gay.
If you figure that half of this number are women and half are men, your dating pool decreases to 1.75%.
If you have other preferences (age, ethnicity, religous/political beliefs), that number is just going to keep getting smaller.
I guess this is what the mean by "minority".
But you know what? Fuck numbers. I know of plenty of gay people in happy relationships. (Okay, realistically, I only know about three, but I don't know that many homos).
Three things to do:
1)Don't be picky.
2)Make the first move (definitely the hardest step).
3)Preen/work out until decent looking.
Maybe this is why so many out gay men are seen by women as being "catches"; we have to make good impressions to even have a chance.
