Re: Online dating thread

Unless you are very tall or planning to go on dates barefoot, I think exaggerating your height by 1-2 inches in your profile it totally standard.

5 9 is not average height for white American men. I'm pretty sure average height for white men is 5 10.5.

How important is height with gay men?

Also, when gay men are dating, who pays the bill? Assuming split?

I have no reason to lie about my height. I'm 6'2" and according to BG (who is the authority in such matters) that's perfect.

If you are, do you remember how popular Northface was with black NYers from the mid 90s to the early 2000s?
I live there now but am originally from MA.

Graduated from high school in 03, North Faces were super common among the mostly white crowd there as well. I actually owned one back then.

6 2 is pretty close to ideal but I'd say it's a little on the tall side for Americans. 6 or 6 1 is ideal.

I think the same as with straight women -- taller guys look better than shorter guys (up to a point, of course).

I've been on one date so far and he paid, so I don't know.

Re: Online dating thread

Split is really standard for me, but I can think of a couple people I dated where we took turns paying basically.

I got a 2nd message back today that was more than just a show quote, something to work with. He's definitely interested, I am in!

Re: Online dating thread

For a straight guy I'd say 6' or 6'1 is ideal, but that's easy to say as a 6'1 guy. Gansta is in the majority wrt shorter guys looking for taller guys and vice versa, but I think it's pretty true with straight dynamics too.

Re: Online dating thread

Had to postpone date #1 with a girl because my sketch comedy group got booked last-minute for a show that night (tonight), texted her I can see her Fri or Sat night and it's been about a day with no response, follow-up text today, what should I say? Give up if I get nothing after that I assume?

Hopefully you apologized and explained the situation, rather than just a "sorry have to cancel, how about Friday?"

Re: Online dating thread

I feel like it'd be awkward to invite someone to see me perform as a first date, when I'd have very little chance to interact with them since I'm in the green room for the majority of the show. I wouldn't be able to talk to her until after around 10:45. I don't think I'd want anyone I'm involved with seeing a show I'm in until at least a few dates
