I'll start by saying that I've spent the last 7 years of my life on Sydney's 'scene'. Best/worst/most interesting days of my life. NB I would never classify myself promiscuous - no more so than the average gay boy, but I definitely have some information to impart on dating and relationships etc. Currently I've been with my partner for over a year, we live together and are parents to a beautiful puppy =]

It really takes me back to my teens when I watched every episode of Sex & the City a million times all the while claiming to have the persona of Carrie Bradshaw (and loving the single life). Needless to say this was only six years ago and let me say to everyone here that yearns for a males touch, seriously a day can change everything. Go out, have fun. Speak less, flirt more. Aim for the hotties, become friends with the nice boys (and play them) - only to realise the hotties are complete morons laden with STI's and the nice boys will always be there for you and will almost work around your diva demands. Cheat at least once, it's naughty and sinful (but you're gay (right?) and it's expected) - be sure to do this to a guy you can't quite shake **Plays Mariah's H.A.T.E.U**... and don't get caught. Understanding both ends of cheating is vital in order to avoid the signs of a cheater for future reference when you REALLY like a guy (although cheating is not a necessary course of action).

If you feel you're being dissed/cheated on I would advise to cut them off entirely. Delete every trace of them. They'll come running back, trust me. Take satisfaction in empowerment and the ability to find someone better. The whole game is about who can strike the bigger blow (no pun intended) without looking like an utter bitch, rather a calm, collected and in control person.

My golden rule was to have high expectations when knowing you're not planning to date i.e you like tall guys, you like blue eyes, you like a funny guy, you like a guy who can dance etc etc. Don't lower your price - raise it, people will always go for you because you have high standards and people like to think that they match these standards (simple psychology). Walls come down when you actually succumb to monogamy; say hello compromise, that tall guy is now 5 foot something but he has the most beautiful smile.

NEVER tell a guy you love him, you only *love things about him*. You 'like' him. Reserve love for that somebody special that's many many years away. I can assure you right now that Mr. Right will not be found between your ages of legal to 25.

Have sex. Lots of it. But keep that special something for that special someone. Go to the doctors frequently, stay protected - always.

When you're out look different, stand out and keep up appearances always. If you take care of yourself, they'll subconsciously believe you'll be able to take care of any future relationship.

The best way to meet all the lovely guys is NOT through a club or over the net (contrary to what any stupid ad will tell you). The best lovers are always through a friend of a friend or at some other sober establishment.

And as Jenny from the block once said: 'Love don't cost a thing'

The first half of this post and few posts on the last few pages are making me lose faith in humanity

I use the hookup guys for sex before/after my date with the guy I actually wanna get to know. It keeps hormones in check during the date.
I cant believe we agree on something but it took sex and dating to do so. This is sooo me

I guess that explains why you're always crushing on straight men then...

This isn't about my, it's about my friend! K?!

I'll be sure to pass on your message to him! I've got a strange feeling he'll agree.

Mate, people want what they can't have. Nothing is more off putting than someone throwing themself at you, and nothing makes you want something more than thinking it's slipping out of your grasp. Remember that.

I think there's also a broader range of what's deemed ok in terms of when to put out with gay men.

That sounds awful.

What I mean to say is the range of when we expect to have sex is a lot larger, and when you have two guys with differing pov, it can get weird. Whereas generally, albeit not always, straight relationships have a formality to the courtship.

You can see it here how gay men sort of run the gamit which makes it more likely to lead to misunderstandings and what looks to be a fickle change of heart.

Well the sort of hunt of it all is so exhilarating. When it becomes a cat and mouse game though it can be pretty tiresome.

Leaving the party to bum a cigarette has been a ploy I've seen pretty often.

I think all men are like that. Well actually you either like to be hunted or prefer to hunt I think. I know plenty of guys who get pretty uncomfortable when they are getting attention like that.
