I'm on okcupid primarily to make more LGBT friends with common interests. My straight friends are great, but it's hard to relate to them on gay issues and they have all contracted an STD called "children" which keeps them very busy. So, I'm looking for someone to hike, bike, climb, game, or jam with who doesn't mind an occasional exchange of gossip about cute male movie stars or musicians. I also find that it's nice to commiserate with other LGBTs who are going through the same struggles of dating, tea-party relatives, or prejudice.
If something really clicks with someone, I'm open to more than friends. However, I often have to spend a lot of face-to-face time with someone before something starts to click for me. So, please be patient if I don't turn into a puddle after a few text messages.
