I am 22. I am gay. Nobody showed interest in me romantically. I feel lonely thinking of that. I can stand being alone but sometimes, I need someone by my side. What am I gonna do?

Maybe you could try to attend environments where you are more likely to find other gay or bi guys to meet - like an LGBT association, group, cultural event, or also club if you are into that. Dating apps are also an option. But most importantly, remember to value yourself and not be afraid of opening up to others. You are worthy of love. And one day, love will find you!

You are not alone, ok? I'm 46 and I'm a gay bottom and I still ask myself the same questions. First, you need to get more gay friends who can get you out there so you can meet a guy. Never think you are alone ok? You're not- there are many gay people out there going through the same things. Even me. I love to hear from you, it comforts me knowing others are experiencing the same thing as I am and feel us gays can help each other this way so we don't feel so lonely/ Cheer up sweetie, we are listening and hearing you
