I later found out that they knew other gay people and they could have helped me make a connection.Don't put all your hopes on one person when you're looking for gay friends on campus. I longed for a boyfriend, especially after I started meeting gay friends.Usually, the best dating situations happen in the most unlikely of circumstances. Just like making gay friends, it's best to get out there and explore social or academic options on campus.You and another great single guy will eventually find each other.
And there are a lot of different types of “dating” to deal with.
I knew I was attracted to guys; but I was way too scared to explore my feelings so I stayed in the closet for a while.
I was also somewhat distant from my co-ed hallmates. Looking back on the situation, most of the guys and girls around me were also excited about being away from home and exploring their own interests.
Months later, when I did come out, I found that most of them didn't care at all.
I wasted great bonding time and denied myself some wonderful experiences by not being myself.
