I initially read this as white and kinky and that would make sense too

Join a sports league. Date. Go out with friends. Join a club. Meet gay coworkers. Shop at gay places. Go to gay coffee shops. Find groups of gays who have the same hobbies as you. Go to drag shows. Go to gay bars. The list goes on and on.

Also did Stonewall Kickball when I moved to DC but I will say, you need to clearly define the friends / lovers divide.

I’ve had more random friend requests on Facebook, and they are concentrated around when I add other gays. You basically trip the suggested friends algorithm once you’re at 3-5 friends in related circles Instagram I’ll add people after meeting at a house gathering and vice versa. Sometimes they’re without any message and sometimes you can make it less weird with a quick intro. You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take! Just nice to meet people, for friends or fun :)

Reviewing resumes and I see more and more frequent that people last one year or less at a job and move on to the next. Is that the new norm?

I’m definitely looking for longevity not a hopper.
