There seem to be quite a lot of “types” when it comes to dating. Unfortunately, or fortunately there are are a lot of signs to what types to avoid. Trust me, you know who I am talking about and what we refer to them as. Don’t get us wrong, there are always the exceptions, but rarely. In the movie He’s Just Not That Into You, we see Ginnifer Goodwin become the exception, well in that film, everyone becomes the exception because Hollywood is notorious for happy endings. So, here is our guide to the men we date, hook up with, and marry:
The Baby Gays: Fresh meat. It is refreshing to see a new generation of gays enter a club. They walk in thinking that they have finally arrived. Their eyes are so full of hope, and the truly are there to have a good time and meet people. Baby Gays really don’t know much of anything, and it is adorable, not datable. This new generation grew up on Will and Grace, and Bravo TV. They idolized America’s Next Top Model, Project Runway, and care more about their Instagram following than they do about their careers. The problem with this younger generation of gays, is that they really don’t know who they are, they are putting on the front of what they see, or what they think gay means. The pro to this, is they have nothing to prove. With the times changing, their isn’t the worldly stuggle of acceptance, maybe they have the internal struggle with family or religion, but the world is finally embracing gay youth. The plus side of dating a baby gay is you can help shape them into the man they want to be.
Bros: When we use to hear the phrase “bro” we immediately thought Orange County gay, but now the gay bro code is everywhere. It seems that it knows no limitations when it comes to geographical location, or even ethnic background. So, how do we now classify a bro: a guy who views the gym as church, is more on the masculine side of things, but most of all it seems that these men love the selfies. In my experience these men maybe will be around for at most a few months. Then, their egos or their body image problems set in and then are projected on to you. Their careers vary from nurses, to real estate, to teachers. They drive larger cars, or luxury sports cars. They care about their cars more than their homes, and they care more about their bodies than their personal lives. But, if you do land a good one they will love your more than they love themselves, whether that is a good thing or bad thing, that is up to you.
The Hipsters: Hipsters are fun, and more importantly they are cool. They are trendy, and artsy, they love music and are foodies. They know how to pull off a suit and tie when need be, and they love a good laugh. Hipsters are great guys, with this very cool approach to dating. It seems that these are the kind of guys that believe love is a casual thing, and it is more about the dating process itself than it is about love. Hipsters will take you to great museums, and really cool indie music festivals, and they will play records you have never heard before. For those of you who smoke American Spirits, you will fit right in. If you are looking for a change outside of your own world, then this is. Another plus in dating a hipster is that they don’t expect anything from anyone so their isn’t a lot of stress when dating.
The Modern Day Dandy: Oh, these guys are a catch. In fact, they might just be too good. What is a modern day dandy? These are them men who wear gorgeous suits, and beautiful clothing. They are all about organic and free trade this and that. Their dating resumes are perfect. They went to great schools, they have great hobbies like reading, or even collecting vintage posters of martinis. Classy martini drinkers, or even the occasional whiskey neat, the modern day dandy seems to be the epitome of a gay man. Unfortunately, they have a lot of downfalls. Usually social status matters to them, their careers always come first, and most of all when it comes to dating them, it seems you must will yourself to their lives and not your own. They don’t really have one boyfriend but casually date, from here to there, and enjoy pleasantries. Now, if you are the exception to the world of dandies, it is definitely worth it. They definitely know how to date, and if you enter a relationship with one, they will most likely marry you.
