What do you do when you want to find young gay friends but are afraid of rejection?
I am Jeremy and I’m 18 and live in Houston, Texas. I’m frustrated because I feel that I need gay friends and I dont have the guts to go to a gay club by myself.
I feel quite lonely sometimes and I would really like to find someone to be with. If I meet somebody online I fear that when we meet up in person they’ll end up rejecting me.
What would you do, Max? Do you know if there are any top gay hangouts for young gay men like me?

You have to be daring if you want to meet people. You have to go to places where gay people go so you can meet other gay youth. If they reject you…oh well, move on to the next guy.
There are plenty of guys and we all have to deal with rejection at some point. You will find gay friends, and even your special person, eventually. Usually at your age, you get really frustrated and think you will never meet anyone. But you will. Just be patient and enjoy life.
Here is a link to a website that provides a lot of useful information for LGBT youth in Houston, and where you can meet other young gay people:
The Montrose Center
401 Branard Street
Houston, Texas 77006
