I have become friends with a younger man in the city. We haven't met in person yet but soon we will. We click on a certain level because I think we have similar views. He is a recent immigrant and his view towards the gay culture is a lot like mine. We are both a little old fashioned, we are both looking for friends or a potential date and not just a quick hookup like most of the other gay men on any dating site.
We were talking the other day about how hard it is to meet gay men even just for friendship. He was saying how shallow he found a lot of gay men, especially him being an immigrant, many try to take advantage of the situation, I couldn't disagree, he felt they only think of sex, again what could I say, if you go by evidence, well he is right again. He was saying how hard he found it that all his friends, cousins and brothers are getting married plus starting families. He is feeling left behind. He said to me, "you know the gay is not good, being the gay is really lonely most times". What could I say, I feel the same way.
