Being gay in Raleigh when I was in my 20s, it was more of a taboo scene. The city is welcoming, and there are plenty of opportunities to meet people.
Now my goals are completely different; I’m not just looking for someone that is attractive.
I’m looking for someone that has my same interests. I co-founded a kickball league, Stonewall Kickball. It’s important to me to enjoy activities with someone—going to Meetups for your interests, bowling leagues, sports. Some people only have one goal – meeting one time only – other people are really looking for a relationship. I hear a lot of people saying that is a successful way of meeting someone—gay or straight. If they take the time to go into depth about their interests and who they are as a person, it makes a huge difference. It also makes it easier to find common interests and set up a date.
We have so many things here in the Triangle to take advantage of—the greenways, museums, tons of events like First Friday. If someone wants to meet you right away, it’s usually a red flag. It may be the person, but not how they are representing at that moment.
“It’s more difficult here,” says dating coach Alma Rubenstein, who moved to Raleigh three years ago after helping singles find love in Los Angeles and Seattle. There’s not a lot of support systems for single folks.”According to Rubenstein, many singles also have forgotten how to flirt, which makes it hard to meet someone new and exchange information.The ODA monitors enquiry and complaint levels and the issues complained about.It can intervene if it sees worrying trends or serious matters of concern.
