In general, it is certainly a challenge when it comes to dating in a small town, since you already know everyone and let’s be honest you probably have already run through every reason you shouldn’t or couldn’t date them in your head. But, here at Maclynn International, we understand that gay dating in a small town is an even larger challenge. There’s no arguing that the options are, sparse. Perhaps you are one of the only gay persons in your community. In that case, it may be time to take matters into your own hands when it comes to getting back out there and we thought we’d help you out!

Bright Lights, Big City

COVID restrictions have been lifted in almost all states, meaning… clubs are back! Living in a small town may mean that the closest city is a great distance, so you could turn it into a weekender. There is nothing like socializing in a welcoming and stimulating nightclub and letting loose. Asking for a dance is a fun and flirty way to initiate a spark. Show off your personality by dressing to impress, you can tell a lot about someone based on how they present themselves. Or share a drink with a suitor, this is a great way to initiate a more intimate conversation.

Community Captivation

If night life isn’t your thing, then a great way to connect with other gay singles is through community groups. Attending a local LGTBQ+ club is a productive and creative way to mingle, while also contributing positive awareness to the public – what a win-win! Joining online circles, like Facebook groups or Clubhouse channels is a quick and seamless opportunity for engagement, too! If your town doesn’t yet have these resources, then you have the power to generate your own fate– a great way to show initiative and seriousness, all attractive attributes to dating.

Express Yourself

You may not be able to detect the gay individuals, but is it possible that they can’t identify you either? It is always important to maintain your truest self, but there are subtle ways to do it that highlight your association to the LGBTQ+ community. Adding a rainbow accessory, like a pin to any outfit is effortlessly eye-catching. Fuel your social media with pride-friendly content like sharing gay creators’ posts, adding a rainbow heart to your bio or highlighting impactful petitions & GoFundMe’s. Being observant is effortful when it comes to seeking out your future partner, and vice versa!
