After I watched the date in question, I felt upset, frustrated, but also unsurprised. On the First Dates dating, both men are white, cisgender and masculine presenting. There are heartbreaking moments, like when both men confess to having been depressed because of repressing their sexuality for so long in their lives. Coming out as gay is often pictured as the ultimate act of queer defiance; but we cannot kid ourselves that it straight exempts us from the pressures of heteronormative society. Even as a public drag queen, I have had to come to terms with how deeply my gay shame is embedded. For my first few years dating men, I used to clean off any trace of nail acting before a date, and if a guy was coming over, I would stuff away my neon wigs in a very literal closet — in fact, it was only late last year that I put a photo of myself in make-up on Tinder and this has led to drastically fewer matches.

Trying to find a "straight acting" guy on dating apps is useless. I have nothing against feminine guys at all, I'm actually friends with alot of them.

The only issue is that I'm just not attracted in that way to them. I'm more attracted to masculine guys who like sports, drinking beer and who never in a million years would you question their sexuality.

I've used Grindr and Tinder and other sites for years and it seems that every single profile picture has a guy doing a duckface or doing a feminine pose, or wearing make-up or wearing feminine clothes or even if their picture looks fairly neutral, they always have something in their "About Me" section that just kills it for me.

It's very frustrating and disheartening after a while. Obviously there ARE straight acting guys out there but most of them are really discreet and only want sex as they have a girlfriend and don't want anyone to know about them.

Original post by AshEntropy You need to talk to guys in real life and become friendly with them without assuming that they're going to be your boyfriend one day, you'll eventually find someone that is to your taste but it takes time and patience.
