Gay dating etiquette

Keeping your profile active on a dating website indicates to the person you’re with the relationship is either not serious or not going anywhere and you’re still on the hunt for a new mate.If you really like the guy you’re seeing, then take your profile down.If you’re just having fun and enjoying each other’s company without it getting to hot and heavy, then keep your profile up and your options open.

There are dozens of online dating sites:, Zoosk, Ok Cupid, e Harmony and Plenty of Fish to name a few. Say you’ve been emailing with this guy for about a week and he seems really sweet.

Then all of the sudden, his messages become weird and cryptic. Is your silence a way of saying, “I’m not interested anymore”?

We should know the rules by now (and yes there are hard and fast rules of texting). If you’re trying to set up a time to meet with someone and are waiting for their response, that’s different.

But my gay (male) friends and potential boyfriends (if they even acknowledge I exist) still don’t seem to "get" how to text. (I would say just go ahead and call them at that point.) But if you’re just playfully chatting back and forth, don’t be upset or immediately follow up when someone doesn’t text you back right away. If you’re texting someone you haven’t texted in a while…Let’s say you’re texting someone you haven’t texted in a while.

Don’t text when you’re hanging out with someone This is a little different than the other tidbits of texting advice I’ve given because it doesn’t have to do with the actual texts themselves, but it’s still important. Playing hard to get works for sex, but then once you’re got (i.e., have sex) then the game is over and he’s done liking you. Even many millennials don’t like texting all the damn time. If his responses are curt, and he’s never the one to text you first, then he’s probably not that into you.If you’re hanging out with friends (or on a date with someone) and you’re texting other people the whole time, just know that you’re being 16. So don’t necessarily expect that he’ll want to text you every day after one date. (Or he may want to slow things down.) You may have come off to strong.But I still wonder what she’d have to say about proper manners when it comes to the dating blogosphere.
