Meeting people

Yeah so about that whole posting more regularly thing.... I'm so sorry I'm really falling off the ball. It's just hard to blog when I have no privacy at my Brother's place, and I like keeping this blog as private as possible, because once everyone knows that I have a blog I begin to feel more limited in what I can post. Anyway I have a couple of posts that I'm working on, but right now I need some advice, I'm getting kind of desperate here. Please can someone anyone tell me how do you meet someone?!

The problem is that I tend to be very introverted at times and occasionally I get a little burst of extroversion. But, in general I'm very shy. So when I go to events and see a beautiful woman, I can't say anything. I know a lot of Queer folks hit up the clubs, but I'm not the best dancer and become very uncomfortable, unless I'm a little tipsy and meeting someone while drunk really doesn't give off the best first impression. So come on people how do you do it? I just updated my downelink profile, which I'm not too thrilled about because I hate downelink sometimes. There are too many young kids trying to get laid. I'm reaching desperation levels here, now. I jut want to meet a nice girl, it doesn't even have to be romantic I just need some gay friends. so PLEASE HELP!!!

When you get an answer to this one please share... I have Downelink and Glee and have had better luck with Glee ... not everyone is trying to get laid :). I've found social activities (reading groups, student groups, spiritual groups) to be good places to meet folks. I'm cursed with tongue tiedness if such a word exists...

My only suggestion is leave Downelink alone..its so..eew! You have to weed thru too much garbage to get to the real. I would say just bundle up and leave the house. Go to neighborhood places that are "gay" and "gay-friendly".. coffee houses, book stores, art shows. I'm sure there are plenty of places in Brooklyn (that's where you are...right?)If you make it a point to hang out at the same places, eventually someone will strike up a conversation.
