i'm going to guess KA? Yikes!

oddly enough, one of my best friends (also gay) was also in KA. the kicker's that he's also black. he claims, though, that KA is different in the north than it is in the south, despite still having the confederate rituals

I don't have an iPhone. I do kind of, sort of, want a boyfriend though. :(


i'd imagine there to be a pretty large closeted fratty population at UVA...probably not your type (or is it?)

I'm going to plead the 5th here. :oops:

It's the ultra-closeted part that actually bothers me. I can understand why people don't want to tell their families sometimes (esp. b/c you don't get to pick your family and some people have some crazy families), but what kind of delusion do you have to be living under to join a frat and pretend you're straight. At Vandy, there was this closeted fratboy in [an ultra-Southern frat], and he was obsessed, to the point of being paranoid, with making sure people didn't find out. I always wondered why he wanted to do that to himself.

But yeah, I'm not really the hookups type.


"I just need to focus on school right now." At least, I've heard that line multiple times before, that coming out was more stress than staying in the closet and therefore coming out was not an option while taking school serious. Incredibly misguided, of course, but still common.

Then again, I doubt a Vandy UG frat boy was too concerned about academics.

Also, online dating is less sleazy than picking guys up in bars. Of course, I've never done either.


I've done both; they're pretty similar, depending on your level of inebriation.

i still say MH is more sleazy (i'm an admitted user, btw lol). at least with the bar, there's always this mystery of what's to come (no pun intended). with MH, you go with the intent to do whatever the hell you guys planned on doing.

Also, online dating is less sleazy than picking guys up in bars and much more inclined to lead to long-term relationships. Bars are for hook-ups, if that's what you want.


Wayyy too much generalization! For example, my UG had like 10 other open gay guys, and let's just say there weren't too many options available within those 10. Besides, I probably wouldn't date within such a small population - bound to start some nasty drama/gossip. So I went to the ONLY gay club as a sophomore and found a bf who I dated for a little over 2 months. How can you think A4A isn't used by our generation of dudes (it is in my area, anyways) but online dating, which I associate with overly busy elderly business people looking to settle, is? But I suppose my own question overly generalizes as well...

Krezy, I want your stanford acceptance. Of course, I'm more angry at myself for shitting around these past four years and crapping on my LSAT. I suppose I know have motivation to do really well my 1L year so that I'll have transfer-ready status.

Edit: wait what? there are frats that have "confederate rituals"?

My UG is incredibly progressive and pro-gay, yet there were 3 out gay men in my graduating class of 600. One was my freshman roommate. Needless to say, we became a couple; my own little gay soap opera in vehemently anti-gay Colorado Springs, CO.

I'll admit I've looked at a few sites. Go to a LS with a large undergrad! Then you'll have plenty of options if you don't mind slightly younger people :D

I guess I feel like 2 months isn't really a bf. Bars are just not places you get to know a person, but online dating allows you to get to know a person before you first go out. Might be a personality thing, though. Like I said, no actual experience in either, met my current and all past bfs through friends/parties/on campus stuff. My knowledge of online dating is all secondhand, although I have gone to bars since turning 21.

Some of it is Boston area, though, especially a UG that is probably 20% gay.

OK please dont flame me, but im a libertarian and i was an intern for FEE (foundation for economic foundation) - a libertarian think tank. The experience was not quite what I anticipated (a lot less weed and a lot more jesus) but are you acquainted with this craaaaazy christian college out near there called CCU? Goodness, I've never been at a more weirder place surrounded by nutjobs in my life.

I also had a gay freshman roommate, but he was one strange kid (used to jerk off at night while I was in the room) so I switched rooms. I suppose I've revealed enough information that people could identify me and I shouldn't be telling stories about past roommates... oh well.

Yes. The one at Vandy has a Civil War cannon in the front yard. I'm under the impression that they've stopped flying the Confederate flag.


Not cool.

it's worse at the SEC schools. At UGA, KA hosted an antebellum social and had the local African-American kids in costumes picking cotton in the background.

Haha, Colorado Christian? Oh yes, a few folks who went to my church in HS ended up going there for [strike]indoctrination[/strike] college. They actually have satellite campuses, including one in a strip mall here in the Springs. The progressive ice cream parlor nearby has a good joke, for when you order nuts, about "those crazy fuckers across the street." Good stuff.
