Gay dating tips second date
One of you will arrive to the date spot earlier, it's just how the world works. The only question is: what the hell are you going to talk about?
After the whole "oh, I'm just waiting for someone" moment with the serve, whoever arrives first will use the extra time to go over the others pics one more time. For whatever reason, gay dudes treat any convo they had online/Grindr as if it didn't happen, mainly to allow for more things to talk about in-person, and also to not seem that into the other guy.
As such, the two of you are going to have a mildly-to-very awkward hello. Usually you can find some prerequisite "gay" show (quotes because I think the idea of a gay show is actually ridiculous) to dish about.
Otherwise you can use their list to pretty much judge the other guy's entire character.
Again, kind of unavoidable, especially if there are some hotties in your direct vicinity.
My trick is to go somewhere with a sparse population of clientele, to circumvent any wandering eyes entirely. We're guys after all, and it's normal to check out the talent around us, even when on a date.
No, I'm not proud, but it worked like a charm, so there.
Don't assume this happens at the end of the date, because if a guy is actually into you, then he might want to feel out exactly how far this first date will go.
Otherwise known as the "are we still doing this date thing" if you're not at a bar.
Be warned, because a yes may not mean the date is going all that well, it could just be the other person forcing themselves to make the date longer than 20 minutes to not make you feel bad, or just a way to get you (or him) more drunk.
If the guy answers "always the Village," he's probably a mildly slutty party-gay.
