If you don't live in a largely liberal, urban area, then you aren't going to be exposed to the best alternative lifestyle dating scene. Cities like New York, L.A. and San Francisco have amazing gay singles scenes, while smaller cities that are more isolated and conservative may not. If you live in an area that isn't gay friendly, then your dating choices will probably be restricted. But there is hope. With a little careful research, you can find quiet communities that still have many gay dating options. Most of these are located on either the west coast of the US or in the Northeast, but there are some diamonds in the rough – Ashville, NC, has a very large and healthy gay community.
