I'm not going on a date anytime soon because i'm still in the closet and I'm not in the right place to start dating so that wouldn't be fair for that person but, for the future i'm wondering if there anything tips I should know for dating in the queer community. Despite some intimate moments with some other boys in preschool and elementary school, I literally never gone on a date and know nothing about this subject especially when it come to queer dating since everything I know is from T.V. shows and movies which usually have little to none queer representation. I would prefer tips for men sense I mainly attracted to them but I'm romantically attracted to all genders and all advice is welcomed.
Edit:(Especially on flirting because again I know virtually nothing about this and I'm completely clueless about this topic)
Well I'm not a man and I'm mainly attracted to women, but for the majority of my life I have dated men so I do have experience there. One thing I would say is to not date a straight guy, I've heard from several that when it comes to queers(or gay/ bi men, etc.) dating guys it's pretty common for it to happen. Some "straight" guys do turn out to be gay(or queer, etc.) sometimes but mainly it usually ends pretty horribly and someone gets hurt. So you should probably be careful with guys who're straight or unsure about their sexuality because they may end up just hurting or using you. Another thing is be cautious around guys who get jealous real easily, from my past experiences guys like that are usually the controlling type and the relationship becomes toxic. But for the most part just be careful and trust your instincts, don't let anyone push you/"convince" you into doing something you aren't comfortable with. And when you are ready to start dating and you start looking for a relationship, just find someone that you love who can make you happy and someone that respects your sexuality, pronouns, and gender. I genuinely wish you are able to find that when you are ready for it! <3
