Online in the dating bar
But, like the men in the survey, I believe we've only just begun to see how this technology will positively change our lives.

The results from 537 single gay and bisexual men are illuminating.
I saw an overarching theme in our data: locating nearby gay men is intensely fascinating and exciting, but it is just the beginning - a beginning that leaves you craving to know more than just his location.
WE' VE all been there, sat across the table from someone you have absolutely nothing in common with - hoping your awful date will come to an end soon.
