New to the gay scene? Tired of your current gay scene? Going to the same bars over and over again, and seeing the same people makes you wonder, "How am I supposed to get laid?" Don't worry about it. Sure, going out is fun, especially if you have a great group of friends, but now and then you get the itch. This need or craving isn't something new or groundbreaking, but it seems that nowadays, meeting a guy at a bar is rather complicated. You have to have the unoriginal small-talk, or you are paying for someone's drinks. The list goes on. After carefully observing my friends, and myself, and just every guy at a bar... Here are some successful ways of cruising a bar.
Lost Puppy: slowly wander around the bar, pretending to look for your friends, truthfully nine times out of 10, you are actually looking for them. And someone might come up to you and say hello. This works for one of my friends in particular. Don't get me wrong, he's pretty to look at with a bangin' body, but it works for him. He always happens to meet a guy when doing a "lap" around the bar.
James Dean Cool: then there is the too cool for school approach. You play the calm, cool, confident card. Lay back, enjoy your night, and scope out the place. When you make eye contact with a guy you like, then smile and stare for a few seconds. Don't be creepy about it. Then stand up, walk over to him and ask if you could buy him a drink. If he has a drink in his hand, then compliment him on either his shoes, hair, watch or blazer. Don't straight out tell him he's hot, because that just means you were looking at his face, body or dick. Play the cool card, and keep the conversation light.
School Boy Shy: a lot of people are nervous when it comes to talking to guys, so they are generally shy or stand-offish. Don't mistake this for bitchiness *cough "weho boys" cough* Just kidding. There is nothing wrong with being shy or reserved, in fact, as long as you don't isolate yourself off at a bar, this works too. Sometimes, being the shy, quiet one in the group helps. It makes you more approachable. For one of our friends, this works great, especially because we are all loud and obnoxious when drinking. Usually, we find a group of guys to talk to, and mingle with, and one of them always steps aside with him to talk about more serious matters. It works.
So these are just three things that work in our circle of friends. Last night we put it to the test, and for all of us, each of us met a guy.
