Dating an international student in college
There were many gay and gay-friendly groups on campus that I could have joined.
I could have also reached out and befriended more of my dorm friends.
But try not to make assumptions about your new hallmates.
Don't put all your hopes on one person when you're looking for gay friends on campus. I longed for a boyfriend, especially after I started meeting gay friends.Unfortunately, not everyone online is on the up-and-up.Always follow these safety tips before meeting an online buddy in person.I was also somewhat distant from my co-ed hallmates. Looking back on the situation, most of the guys and girls around me were also excited about being away from home and exploring their own interests.Months later, when I did come out, I found that most of them didn't care at all.
