I find it interesting to observe the habits of my friends and family in their social lives, and those of people that I meet in various places. In small communities like mine, we sometimes find it difficult to meet openly gay and lesbian people. It must be nice to have the world of Internet dating available to anyone seeking a significant other, whatever their sexual orientation. I think these websites are helpful particularly for people who live in isolated towns and struggle to socialise because they are shy or uncomfortable in so-called mainstream society.
For example, there is gay dating in Humberside for single men seeking another. Moving further north, there is a site for gay dating in Lothian. For my female readers seeking a companion, you could try lesbian dating in County Tyrone, lesbian dating in County Durham, or at the other end of the UK, we have lesbian dating in Portsmouth. So much choice, I do hope you find a new friend (or more).
