It has taken me a while to finally come round to and get myself used to the fact of being Gay regards sexuality. I have only reached this conclusion recently.
I'm now beginning to ask myself, and others who know, how best to go forward. One of the things which I'm commonly told is to find a group of friends first (men obviously) or mixed LGBT etc which I could become friendly with a man from.
I have tried using Facebook, Meetup.com and spoke with a charity local to me. The results that I have received have been limited due to the charity's nature, Facebook groups being unreliable and no local groups on meetup.com (nearest Gay Friends group is quite a distance and requires payment for membership).
I myself am suffering with vulnerability both sexuality and health wise.
I was wondering if anyone could help me with this as I have been told by family and friends that the best way into a potential Gay (or Straight) relationship is to be friends first.
I'm looking for any suggestions, advice and recommendations for how to make Gay friends in a safe, secure and vulnerable risk free way - both online and offline.
