Whether you’re a lesbian, bisexual or straight woman, finding the right guy for you may feel like an impossible task. This is especially true if you’re in a small town, but there are many ways to meet people with similar interests and values.
The first step is to identify the type of guy that you’re attracted to. Do you want someone who has a strong sense of family and community, or do you prefer someone who is adventurous or intellectual? Once you’ve figured this out, it will be easier to find gay men who fit your criteria.
One study found that gay men tend to be attracted to faces that are more masculine. This could be because of a tendency to eroticize traits that are different from our own, or it could have something to do with the fact that many gay men grew up in places where effeminacy was devalued and masculinity privileged.
Whatever the reason, it’s important to remember that just because you’re attracted to a man doesn’t mean you have to date him. Many gay men are happy with platonic relationships, and in many cases, the sexual aspects of a relationship become secondary. There are a number of ways to meet gay men, and it’s best to try a few before you decide what works for you. It’s also worth noting that both sexual orientation and gender identity can be fluid, meaning that they shift or change as we get older or meet new people.
