It comes down to age as well. Young gay people want the scene more to make friends and lovers while its not so important to older gay people.

Someone else said age but I don't think that's fully true. I think relationship status plays a much larger part.

Well not even just age but life stage... Honestly I would settle nearly anywhere apart from my home town if I had an ltr partner. But I don't think being the only gay in the village gets easier with age.

You'd swear there was nothing to do for gay people besides gay bars.

Oh I don't mean cos I wouldnt need a gay bar if I had a partner, I don't need gay bars as it is, but being partnered IMo is like an army of two and I would care a lot less what the locals thought.

I suppose its about confidence as well. Who gives a shite what the locals think?

Well no man is an island as they say, very few want to be isolated (whether they let on or not). i don't give a shite about anyone when im with my friends but I couldn't be an outsider on my own

why would you presume that you'd be an outsider?

Of course there's more to do that hang out in gay bars. And gay communities in cities offer so much more.

So please educate us where gay people can meet - either as friends but more likely for relationships - outside of a gay hub/community. I'm not aware of any big gay social scene outside of the cities. Yes, there are groups like LGBT North West that meet monthly. But that's monthly. Not really thriving is it?

there are gay people living everywhere so this perception of being the only gay in the village is a bit nonsense.

It's not nonsense. I put on grindr last time I was back at my parents out of interest. The nearest person was five miles away but the nearest openly out was forty miles away.

And I travel the country a fair bit and find that it's the same all over; anywhere that isn't in the shadow of a city.

Doesnt prove anything grindr is for single gay guys - so obviously you wont get couples on grindr, you wont get women on grindr, also get this; Lots of people dont use grindr.
