I am 25 y/o, gay...but I have never had a boyfriend. Mainly this is because I used to live in a less metropolitan area lacking any major gay social scene....and now I live in suburban Los Angeles, so I think I will have more opportunities. However, I'm not accustomed to dating, and I'm not sure what's the best way of going about meeting other gay guys for potential relationships. I'm reluctant to meet people through online dating services, because I've heard a lot of horror stories...and I'm also concerned about falling for a guy who might have an STD. I also (rather self-consciously) will admit that I'm mostly a virgin...my only sexual experience has been receiving a blow job from another guy (although i LOVED it!!!). So I'm very sexually inexperienced, and I was wondering what are some pieces of advice you might have for me, based on your own experiences, before I actually have my real *First_Time*? I'm a little worried, because I'm afraid I'm going to fall for a guy, and then if we get intimate I won't really know what I'm doing.
