The greatest thing the internet has brought us is the ability to connect with people all over the world. And even better, the ability to connect with other with the same exact interests and goals as us.
One of the best places to meet other gay Indians is through the worlds largest social media platform – Facebook. A quick search in the groups section for their site turns up hundreds of groups dedicated to gay people, so they can connect, share and meet with other gays anywhere around the world.
Another way is to search by interests. Another search by zip code or city turns up another several thousand gay people in my city alone. All it takes is a few friends requests and next thing you know you will have thousands of gay friends that are open to meeting and connecting in real like.
If you intend on connecting with other by friend requests, keep in mind that Facebook is trying to stop spammers so for that reason, it would be best to only reach out to a couple of new friends per day and to continue making friends only when the first group of friend requests get accepted. Reason being because FB will block your account if you are sending out too many friend requests and enough people are accepting your request. This triggers their spam filter and they will block your account for that.
The best way to grow your friends list is to be the cool friend. What works great is to discipline yourself to post 1 picture per day of things that make you happy. It could be a picture of your bike, car, or dog – whatever, everyday with a happy caption something along the lines of “ready to jump on my bike and go for a ride, can’t beat the weather — wish you guys could join me” and more posts like that everyday with a nice photo and others will see you as a fun person to be around. And guess what happens next, other will send you friend requests as well. Once others friend request you, knowing that you are gay it will only be a matter of time before many will reach out to you and want to hang out. Try these tips and let me know how they work for you.
