Before you can post or reply in these forums, please join our online community. I live in Adelaide, I am gay and I am pretty much struggling to find a partner and maintaining a circle of friends. I came across a message from a user who said the following about the dating apps "I was mostly ignored and came away feeling annoyed and frustrated.
I did my best to relate to others and tried to find a connection with someone, but I felt as though I was wasting my time because my effort and enthusiasm was not reciprocated. In addition, the circle of friends I have are mostly couples who have their own schedule and I see them very rarely and it is usually me who has to take the initiative and organize something.
Even then it might take ages for us to decide on a date, time and place. You must be feeling quite frustrated with your situation atm to come to BB for help. I hope you're not struggling too much. I'm not from Adelaide so unfortunately I can't comment on the scene there, but thought I'd drop you a line. I guess loneliness hits us all at some stage of our lives; some deal with it better than others. The dating scene can be somewhat unpleasant for those who're a bit reserved like me.
Joining a club that suits your interests could be a good place to start. In Sydney there's a huge set-up to help out with the annual Mardi-Gras. Maybe a sporting or book club? I'm guessing of course, but you get my meaning yeah? It's been quiet for a while, but if you check in, things might spark up. I'll keep an eye out for you ok. Btw, I tried a same sex dating site and went out with someone I learned the hard way was a sexual predator.
Shaking my head It takes all sorts so please take care of yourself hun. Not sure what else I can help you with I'm afraid. Please feel free to write here and talk about any issues you have ok. I'm a great listener.. I am sorry to hear about your bad experience, I really hope you didn't find out about that the hard way and that you have found a way to get over that.
It is funny you should mention travelling, cause this is something I really want to do but I don't drive, so I have to rely on public transport. I really want to travel around Australia. I am actually searching for different groups, but I find that either the groups are not active or the members are mostly women no offense at all to women, but you get what I mean, me being gay and all lol.
I know there's also companies that organize trips for singles in an attempt to matchmake people, but you really have to be wealthy to afford the money they are asking So I really don't know. If you can thing of anything or anyone that can help, feel free to let me know. Hey, no worries Mitch.
You're one of the good guys so I'm sure there's a great 'someone' out there waiting in the wings. I have also just arrived in Adelaide and is feeling the same way as you.
I am gay and also hope to look for friends and a meaningful connection with a special one. I have lived in many cities but adelaide is a very clicky town. I find I just end up doing activities alone because everyone is either in a relationship or bot interested. I love to get myself outdoors and to the beach. The hills are great to get some fresh air and clear your head. I'm not in Adelaide - but Victoria. I only came out 12 mths ago at 47 and after a 21 years of a faithful and monogamous marriage.
I didn't know what to do to go out and meet other gay guys, not necessarily for a relationship or experience, but just to make friends and socialise with likeminded people. Everything else would take care of itself I guess. It is nice to get out and talk to other guys. Someone also put me on to the "Meetup" app. This is a social app - NOT a dating app. I have now made quite a number of friends from attending events that the groups create.
For instance back in March, a group posted that they were going to go to Daylesford country vic for the day to go to the Chillout festival. So I went along, and from that I have made new friends 2 sets! It is really nice.
I've been to other group events too, some I've made other friends, some events didn't do much for me so I haven't been back.
Worth a try for sure. You may need to not think about meeting the man of your dreams there, just let it come as it does. If you are going out expecting or wanting to meat him, you may give off the wrong vibe. I don't like the dating apps either, and tried to go on and use, but keep deleting my profile and not responding to the messages. I just cant get myself to do that.
Try and stay positive, positivity is infectious and if you come across happy and positive you'll likely make new friends as I did! Of course, the opposite does the same in reverse! I really struggled in Adelaide too. So the main thing is not to take it personally. There are strong private school and family networks so don't feel that you are lesser for any reason. There is a Lgbti choir group, tons of sporting groups etc. I find most of my intimate discussions are online now. I have a strong network of facebook, whirlpool.
I think anywhere where there are other gay people is the way to go. I am West of Melbourne, I did a bike ride last weekend gay group asked a guy out, got a rejection, and it stings a bit. First time I have done this in my entire life and I am 44!
I refuse to go anywhere near the dating app's. I approached another guy in the group who I have known for some time and discussed with him my experiences of loneliness.
I sensed he felt the same, and his response was, you just got to keep turning up Gregbm your situation sounds similar to mine. I came out last year after 20 years of marriage and 2 kids.
I've been separated now for just over 12 months and still finding my feet. This isn't a dating app - like you and MarkPiz - the dating apps aren't for me. Not interested in just a hookup. I guess I'm not even really looking for anything other than just friends, and see what happens. Just finding likeminded guys can be hard too. Unlike MarkPiz, I haven't approached any other guys for a date or even a coffee!
I'm too afraid of the rejection! Anyway, I guess it just takes time - you need to put yourself out there - not come across to keen etc. Join as many LGBT groups that you can. Hey there, it isn't just Adelaide, it's the same everywhere. I'm in Melbourne - and yes, whilst there are gay night clubs and more people, it's still hard when you are older.
As Truetomyself said, people already have friends or busy with family or work and it can be hard to break into new groups. There are things you can do - if you are into sport then Google Team Adelaide. They are obviously not dating groups, but a place you can just meet people and make friends.
Whatever happens from there just happens! It is not a dating app. It is a social app, that connects people with the same interests. I did that in Melbourne and have made some really good friends.
Good luck, if you take them for what they are - opportunities to meet new people and break into new groups, and go in looking for friendship first, then you should be okay.
