How To Bag That Second Date

Happy gay couple

If there’s a spark of chemistry on the first date, it’s crucial to play it cool, if you want to be in with a chance of bagging date number 2! Our practical tips will help you and show you how to bag that second date…

When your friends are all happily paired up with a love interest, it can easily feel like you’re the only person who doesn’t know how to get a boyfriend. With 8 billion people on the planet, there’s unlimited potential to find someone you can date or hook up with.

On Gay Adult Chat there are real men waiting to chat, flirt and date you. On a first date, with a hot guy you fancy, you can build on the rapport that you’ve already established via sending and receiving flirty messages, and chatting on the UK’s busiest gay phone chat line service for hours.

Ramp up the rapport

So, you’ve clicked with a guy you’ve been flirting with online, and it’s now time to meet in person… Besides following the obvious dating etiquette rules regarding good grooming, being on time, and showing off your charismatic personality, it’s important to put some effort into ramping up the rapport on a first date.

Create a feeling of intimacy, by making eye contact when you’re chatting and flirting, and matching their body language by using the mirroring technique. Lean in when they do, and gently touch their arm, to show your date that you’re definitely interested in them.

Keep it positive

Chat about the things you have in common, and ask your date to share stories about his life. Pay attention to his every word and ask questions that keep the conversation going, to let him know that you’d love to get to know him better.

If his jokes are genuinely funny, tell your date that he’d make a great stand up comic. Paying sincere complements will make him feel good, and also create a positive memory of the time you’ve spent together.

It’s best to avoid talking about sex, politics or controversial topics. Instead, focus on discovering each other’s likes and dislikes, passions and hobbies. The more comfortable that he feels in your company, the greater the chance that he’ll want to see you again.

Be yourself

The right person will love everything about you, so it’s essential that you let your date see the real you. Take ownership of your charming personality, quirky sense of style and wicked wit.

If you feel judged, undermined or uncomfortable being yourself in someone’s company, they’re clearly not on the same wavelength as you. Bagging a second date with Mr Wrong is really not worth the time and energy, if you’re serious about finding a soulmate.

Learn to accept rejection

On your journey to find Mr Right, it’s inevitable that you’ll experience rejection. Not every guy you meet will be genuine, authentic and looking for a romantic relationship with you. Sometimes, the connection that you have with a hot guy will quickly lose steam, or you may be ghosted after the first date.

Learning to accept that rejection is part of the dating game and life will enable you to regain your confidence, and the desire to continue on your quest to find your perfect partner. It’s also essential to learn from your own behaviour, and to set boundaries and higher standards for yourself. You will always attract the type of person that’s aligned with your vibe, so put some effort into raising that too!

Chatting with friendly guys on Gay Adult Chat is a great morale booster, if you’ve recently experienced dating disappointment. You can practice your flirting and seduction techniques, and explore connections with men that you may consider to be not your usual type. Your ideal love match will stand out from the crowd, and will definitely be on your unique wavelength.

5 Reasons To Have A Christmas NSA Hook Up

The festive season can often lack a special spark of magic for many people. Whether you’re spending Xmas alone, or feel duty bound to be around the family, a NSA hook up can certainly give you something to look forward to beyond unwrapping the presents laid out under the Christmas tree.

Here are 5 reasons why a Christmas NSA hook up should be on your festive wish list this year…

  1. It’s exciting and thrilling

Having sex with someone you’ve just met can be intoxicating and addictive. Hopping into bed with a stranger who is as hot and horny as you can be a mind-blowing experience, and a pleasurable long-lasting memory.

If you’re freshly out of a long-term commitment or a shorter-term romantic relationship didn’t work out, hooking up for NSA casual sex can feel absolutely liberating. Casual one-night stands can be the perfect antidote to getting over a gay relationship break up. Cheating on your partner can be equally thrilling though!

If you’re in an open relationship, you can explore the possibilities of a kinky ménage a trois this Christmas. Just make sure that your partner is as keen on the idea, before you suggest it to the sexy stranger that you’re flirting with on GayAdultChat.

  1. You can learn something new

Hooking up with different guys adds variety to your sexual repertoire. On GayAdultChat you can easily connect with lots of interesting real men who can teach you something new. On the live 1-2-1 chat you can flirt with friendly and open-minded men and exchange private messages that get you feeling all hot and bothered.

Friendly banter can quickly develop into salacious seduction, if you play your cards right. You can practice your flirting techniques, discover what other guys like in and out of the sheets, and also explore your sexuality on a deeper level. On a NSA date with the guy you fancy, you’ll be able to put what you’ve learned into physical practice.

  1. You can gain a new sexual perspective

It’s common for men who have been in a committed relationship for a long time, or single for ages, to temporarily lose their sexual identity. In-frequent or repetitive sex can make you doubt your hotness and sexual prowess, or seriously question your own sexual desires, wants and needs.

A Christmas NSA hook up can perk you up by giving you a new sexual perspective. A no-strings intimate encounter is the shake-up you need to wake up your libido and put a spring in your step. The exciting experience can help you let go of repressed feelings of guilt or shame, and encourage you to more fully express and embrace your sexuality.

  1. Get a massive ego boost

Having a sexy stranger outrageously flirt with you is a guaranteed way to get a massive ego boost. Reading and hearing comments about your appearance or personality can make you feel attractive and desirable, and boost your self-confidence and self-esteem.

When chatting to hot guys on GayAdultChat be sure to take the time to pay ego-boosting complements that make other people feel great too. Being genuine and sincere with your complements is important, if you want to be in with a chance of hooking up on a Christmas NSA date.

On a no-strings one-night stand at Christmas, or at any other time of the year, you don’t have to think beyond the first date. This means that you can relax and simply enjoy the raunchy experience without worrying about whether or not the connection is going anywhere. Instead, see it as a prime opportunity to stroke your ego and to explore and exercise your true sexual nature.

  1. It sets you up for a great New Year

An enjoyable and pleasurable Christmas NSA hook up can help to set the tone for a sex-fest New Year. Having a horny encounter with a hot guy you’ve clicked with on GayAdultChat can inspire you to make resolutions that benefit your sex life, as well as positive lifestyle changes that support your new sexually liberated outlook.

7 Ways To Spot If He’s A Keeper

When you’re dating, and looking to make a connection with a committed romantic partner, it can difficult to identify if the guy you’re interested in is Mr. Right. Let us help you spot if he’s a keeper.

On GayAdultChat, you’ll have unlimited opportunities to have fun flirting and exploring NSA and romantic possibilities with genuine guys from all over the UK. But unless you’re a dating expert, you may not know how to spot the compatibility clues that define keeper potential.

To discover if you’re onto a good thing with the guy that you’re currently pursuing or dating, here are 7 clues that will let you know if you’re found Mr Right or Mr OK-for-now…

  1. Keepers are emotionally available

A keeper is someone who is comfortable expressing feelings and emotions. He’s not weighed down by emotional baggage that he hasn’t dealt with. The qualities of being open, honest, down-to-earth and trustworthy enhance his confidence and charisma, and make the sexual chemistry highly charged between two compatible people.

Transparency is important to the emotionally available keeper who doesn’t feel the need to hide any aspect of who he is. He’ll naturally expect you to be equally transparent. If you’re into playing the field or mind games, this serious contender for your heart may well be worth giving up your old habits.

  1. Keepers know their worth

A man who knows that he has desirable keeper qualities will also have a realistic sense of his own self-worth and value. This guy doesn’t have to impress anyone to get what he wants and needs in life.

Having a strong sense of identity means that the keeper knows what he brings to a long-term relationship. Unless your self-concept is identically positive and balanced, you may not be his perfect match.

  1. Keepers are self-accountable

Keepers understand that a long-term love relationship requires commitment and consistency for it to work. They also know that self-accountability is incredibly sexy.

Learning from his past has made the keeper self-accountable, and able to plan for a happy future with confidence. As a genuine keeper is no push over, don’t expect him to give up his beliefs or point of view, just to keep things sweet. He takes great pride in holding himself accountable for his words, actions and deeds.

  1. Keepers prioritise self-love

Keepers pride themselves in being the best that they can be. They practice self-love and stay physically, mentally and spiritually healthy. Whilst having an appealing appearance is also important, a keeper doesn’t have the need to spend more time in the bathroom than you, pampering and preening. Instead, his focus is on ensuring that his high vibe energy remains uncompromised by people and relationships that are toxic.

  1. Keepers go with the flow

Keepers tend to have a relaxed, laidback and philosophical approach to life. They also value genuine connections that grow organically over time. It’s not their style to chase, fool around, cheat or lie. For a relationship to work with a keeper, you may have to change your player ways, if you’re into coaxing, persuading or manipulating a partner to get what you want.

  1. Keepers stay interested

Unlike the player or NSA lover that quickly gets bored and moves on, a keeper knows that you have to work at staying interested. He’s not afraid to look for ways to keep the romantic connection fresh, fun and exciting. This guy brings a lot of good things into a relationship, and he’s resourceful at coming up with entertaining plans and ideas to keep you happy.

  1. Keepers are the real deal

If you’re looking for a loving relationship that goes the distance, don’t waste your time flirting with hot guys that only want one thing. The keeper isn’t shy about being upfront and expressing genuine interest in the person that he feels is the One.

On GayAdultChat you could get super lucky and instantly connect with a keeper. Or you can have tons of fun while you search for the guy who has real keeper potential.

The Advantages Of Dating An Older Man

Sexy older manChatting, flirting and hooking up with hot and horny guys is super fun and easy on Gay Adult Chat – the UK’s busiest gay phone chat line service. With so many real men available nationwide, you have unlimited opportunities to date someone who is mature and experienced. So what are the advantages of dating an older man?

Whether it’s the charm of a wise and intelligent fatherly figure, or the well-maintained looks of a sexy silver fox that turns you on the most, exploring a connection with an older man has never been easier.

If you’re a regular on the online gay dating scene, chances are that you’ve probably dated plenty of guys that are the same age as you, or perhaps younger. Dating older men however offers many advantages, especially if you’re looking for a committed relationship.

He knows who he really is

On the dating scene, the older guy has a lot more to offer than his more youthful rival. As the mature man is at a different stage in life, he’s probably had his midlife crisis and discovered who he really is. He’s also more likely to be solvent, comfortable and settled, and to know exactly what he wants.

The older man really is a prize catch. As he’s got tons of flirting, dating and relationship experience under his belt, he’ll be able to teach you a thing or two, and also give you a refreshing alternative perspective on life.

He’s a good communicator

A guy who is older than you in years is far more likely to be a good communicator than your peers. He’s completely at ease in social settings, loves to share his knowledge with others, and has no need to show off. He may also be a natural mentor who freely offers words of wisdom and guidance to others.

As a good communicator, the senior guy values authenticity and has little time for BS or drama. This means that you won’t have to deal with any game playing, as you progress your connection from friendly flirting to something more meaningful and intimate.

He’s got experience

An older man has played the field and has got his s**t together. He’s more confident and self-assured than his younger counterpart, and isn’t inclined to pretend to be something he’s not. If you invite him to share his wealth of experience, knowledge and wisdom with you, he’ll happily teach you how to enjoy life, and how be a better lover.

He’ll appreciate that you’re a willing young student, and will gladly take the lead in building a connection with you. If you want to impress him, show your maturity by taking responsibility for keeping your flirty promises.

He’s better in bed

A guy who’s older than you will probably have a stronger sense of self, more sexual experience, and a better technique in bed. While he’s long past his sexual peak, he knows how to maintain his prowess and stamina, and how to expertly stimulate and tantalise your sweet spots.

When dating a senior gent, it would be foolish not to take full advantage of your primary asset – your youth. From his perspective, youthfulness is an attractive quality. If there’s a big age gap between you and the mature man that you fancy, tease him by acting your age and playing out his wildest fantasy. Let him be your sugar daddy, if it floats his boat.

5 Date Night Seduction Tips

You’ve clicked with a sexy stranger on GayAdultChat, the UK’s busiest gay phone chat line service, and now you’re making plans to hook up on a hot date… As you’ll undoubtedly be excited about the prospect of meeting your crush in the flesh, it’s helpful to brush up on your seduction skills, if you want to guarantee that you’ll have a night to remember. Our 5 practical date night seduction tips will boost your flirting confidence, and impress the guy that you’re keen to get to know better…

  1. Upgrade Your Grooming Habits

A man’s grooming habits say a lot about his personality, self-confidence and self-image. If you don’t already practice good self-care and hygiene, it’s definitely time to start before you hook up on a date with your latest crush.

Give yourself a top to toe grooming makeover. When showering, pay extra attention to the areas of the body where sweat glands are more active. Do some manscaping, if required.

Wear clean clothes that fit you properly. Never be tempted to recycle a shirt because it’s your ‘lucky’ one, but you just didn’t have time to wash it.

It’s a fact that aroma enhances any experience, so make sure that you finish off your grooming with a splash of your favourite intoxicating masculine fragrance. When you look good and smell amazing, you don’t have to work quite so hard at the art of seduction.

  1. Prep For Great Conversation

To establish rapport and build on the chemistry between you, it’s good to talk. Get the conversation flowing by starting off with some small talk. Good topics of conversation include likes and dislikes, current affairs, social media, or something that you have in common.

Once you feel relaxed in each other’s company, take the conversation to the next level. Ask your date questions about their job, interests, passions and hobbies.

You don’t have to be a comedian to crack a joke that makes your date laugh out loud. You can show off your wicked sense of humour by making a funny observation about your surroundings, or about yourself.

You can slip in some flirtatious banter at any stage in the conversation. When your comments are accompanied with a playful touch on their arm, your date will be clear about your interest.

Throw in a few sincere compliments too. Be cheeky and playful but not overtly sexual, when passing comment on your date’s looks and appearance.

  1. Focus On Him, Not Yourself

Smart guys do far more listening than talking. They know the secret to discovering a whole lot about another person is to focus all attention on them. Your attentiveness will make your date feel like you only have eyes for them. And when it’s your turn to speak, they’ll think that every word you utter is a pearl of wisdom.

  1. Use Body Language

Flirting face-to-face, with the hot guy you clicked with on GayAdultChat, gives you an opportunity to practice seduction techniques that incorporate body language. Many animal species engage in signalling sexual interest in this way.

Flash a smile to let him know that you’re friendly and approachable. Make sure that your gestures are open – void crossing your arms across your chest – to encourage reciprocal behaviour.

The simple and subtle gesture of making eye contact, averting your gaze, and then looking back again can be incredible seductive. As too is a seemingly absentminded touch on the forearm, while you’re engaged in flowing conversation.

When you’re naturally in synch with someone you fancy, you’ll mirror their gestures and movements without even noticing.

Leaning in close, when chatting and flirting, makes the connection more intimate. However, if your date pulls back, it’s a signal that you’re coming on too strong.

  1. Be Authentic

On GayAdultChat you can connect with genuine gay, bi and straight men that are the real deal. The biggest turn on for anyone on a date is knowing that you’re flirting with a hot guy who is authentic, and interested in you.

Even if you feel shy or nervous, don’t try to cover it up with bravado or a fake persona. Relax and admit that you’re just excited about meeting your crush in person.

5 Reasons To Date Off Type

Whether you’re a hopeless romantic eternally searching for the One, or a guy who enjoys the excitement of the chase that leads to NSA hooks up, taking a risk and dating off type could reward you with a pleasant surprise. It could be that your perfect match is not the type of man that you expected!

On GayAdultChat you have unlimited opportunities to chat, flirt and date thousands of real men from all over the UK. While sticking to your usual type may certainly get you plenty of fun and flirty messages in your personal mailbox, this safe and predictable approach is also restricting your chances of being lucky in love.

Being open to dates with a difference instantly maximises the potential of your desired outcome. Need more reasons to date someone that’s not your usual type? Here are 5 whys you should definitely give it a try…

  1. It Makes Life More Exciting

The UK’s busiest gay phone chat line service is the perfect place to start making your life more exciting. If you’ve been single for far too long, or you’re stuck in a dating rut, GayAdultChat offers easy connection to thousands of hot, horny and available guys who are keen to find someone just like you.

Instead of messaging men who have photos and profiles that you’re convinced tick all your dating requirement boxes, you’ll instantly double your chances of success, if you send a flirty ice-breaker to someone who has a different type of appearance and approach.

If you’re a seasoned dater you may already realise that messaging guys who are very similar in type usually gets you the same kind of replies and results. To break the repetitive no second date cycle, you’ll need to be daring and open to the unknown. Stepping out of your comfort zone, and dating a man who is younger, older, shorter, less ripped, more hirsute, or of different ethnicity than your usual type, is all it takes to make life more thrilling and rewarding.

When you date someone who is off type, life suddenly becomes full of surprises and possibilities.

  1. You Gain A New Perspective

Dating someone who is different from your usual type can have a positive impact on you in many ways. When you’re constantly attracting the same, you can quickly fall into a pattern of behaviour that feels like your living a Groundhog Day life. Every date you go on can feel like déjà vu, with a predictable ending.

A guy that is not your usual type can challenge you to look at life from a new perspective. What he says, how he acts, and what he shares with you will expand your interest in trying new things and experiences. If he has a different ethnic background and heritage to you, you can also learn amazing thins about another culture.

  1. You Can Discover Complementing Qualities

Everyone that you meet is different and offers you a unique opportunity to discover what you really want from a lover and a relationship. While it can be fun to create a must-have checklist, when you’re casually dating and hoping to successfully hook up or find the One, being too rigid about the essentials can seriously limit the potential of you getting lucky.

Some guys may have a great personality but lack emotional maturity. Other men may not be on your wavelength intellectually, but perhaps they compensate with a wicked sense of humour. Chatting and flirting on GayAdultChat can highlight a variety of qualities that may be missing from your perfect partner checklist.

Even though an off type guy is physically different to what you’re used to, you could discover that you have tons in common. What you may not initially spot that he’s much more intelligently, sensitively, and romantically aligned with what you’re looking for in an ideal partner.

Dating someone different can open your eyes to complementing qualities and unique attributes that you’ve never experienced or considered before. What you thought you wanted could actually end up being less than you deserve.

  1. You Learn Something About Yourself

Dating someone off type can be a lot of fun. The chance to get to know someone new is also an opportunity to learn something about yourself.

An off type partner may have a different background to you, as well as unique likes and dislikes. As you’re getting to know them, you could learn that you love the differences that the new dating experience is offering.

Maybe you discover that you love the cuisine of a different nation, or that country music isn’t quite so offensive to your ears as you previously thought. Or perhaps you learn that you actually enjoy playing a sport that you’ve never considered trying, or that you have a secret passion for a new hobby.

When you date someone who isn’t your usual type, there’s always the possibility that you learn that you previously set the bar of your dating and relationship expectations far too low.

  1. You May Find Your Perfect Match!

If your string of bad dates is never-ending, it’s easy to feel like you’ll never find your perfect match. The harsh truth is: if you always do what you always did, you’ll always achieve the same result.

The easiest way to break the cycle is to date someone who is a different type, or your opposite. Your perfect match could very likely be someone who considers you to be a contrasting choice to their usual dating preference.


Why Gay Guys Love NSA

No strings attached (NSA) arrangements promise excitement, sex, and absolute emotional detachment. Being able to enjoy the fun side of a physical relationship, without getting caught up in the messy feelings part, is highly attractive to any man (or woman) who is horny or lonely.

If you’re a gay guy who is looking for passion and an erotic encounter, you can easily find your ideal hook up on GayAdultChat. You can chat and flirt with genuine gay, bi-curious and straight men via live 1-2-1 chat, set up your own personal dating mailbox, and exchange messages with anyone you fancy.

Getting to know someone is entirely optional on the UK’s busiest gay phone chat line. If you’re only interested in connecting to enjoy casual sex, you can get straight to the point by sending messages to hot guys nationwide. If your sex preference is to find a FWB for regular booty calls, cruise the member profiles to find your perfect NSA playmate.

And if you’re a hopeless romantic who is looking for love, you could just get lucky and find that too!

No Strings Attached – Busting The Myth

If you believe everything that you read in the gay media, then every gay man is constantly on the prowl for their next casual hook up conquest. It’s a myth that all gay gays are stereotypical and only into sex that is strictly no strings attached. While some gay men certainly love to partake in a lot of sex, others are pickier about the number of lovers they sleep with, or have common sexual hang-ups just like their heterosexual counterparts.

Some gay and heterosexual men may believe that the more times they have sex, the more masculine they are. This false belief can cause confusion, if you’re a man who doesn’t feel comfortable having casual sex and having it often. If you need to feel safe, respected, connected and valued, before jumping into bed with someone, NSA may not be for you. If you feel that something is missing in your life, having lots of sex won’t instantly make you feel happier or complete.

Confidence Boosting Benefits

On the upside, NSA arrangements can be beneficial in boosting a guy’s sexual confidence, body confidence and overall self-confidence. If you’re lacking in the three Cs, you may find it challenging to form relationships that are lasting, because you may not feel worthy or deserving of the experience. Having your ego stroked by a hot gay guy who thinks you’re sexy, can work wonders on your self-image and sex-drive.

Stress-busting Intimacy

It’s a medical fact that regular sex sessions can help to reduce your stress levels. Sexual stimulation triggers the release of feel-good hormones, like endorphins, oxytocin, and dopamine. The cortisol hormone that controls stress also lessens, while you’re engaged in intimacy.

If you work in a highly pressured profession or environment, you may require a frequent outlet for releasing stress before it becomes pent-up. For many single men, a NSA hook up is a far more exciting option than a session of solo masturbation, or a visit to the doctor for stress reducing pills.

Plus, there’s growing scientific evidence that increasing the frequency of ejaculation can lower a man’s chances of getting prostate cancer and developing cardiovascular disease (CVD). You can also minimise your chances of developing erectile dysfunction (ED) by having sex at least once a week.

Extramarital Sex

The need and desire to have more sex could mean that you look outside of an emotional relationship, if you’re attached. Having fun between the sheets with a horny stranger is a tempting and thrilling proposition for a MBA guy with a higher than average sex drive.

If you’re in an open relationship, NSA connections offer an opportunity to get your rocks off without fear of the casual encounters affecting the emotional side of your romantic partnership and love life.

In Search Of The One

Some gay men use a hook up as a means of feeling out a potential long-term lover. A NSA encounter allows you to spend time with someone you fancy, so that you can explore whether there’s any real chemistry or the spark of a meaningful connection.

If you’re only interested in NSA gay sex, it’s polite to let the sexy guy that you have been flirting with, on GayAdultChat, know upfront that the amorous encounter will strictly be a one-night stand or a casual fling.

While you’re looking for the One, you could enjoy great nights of hot sex with no expectations. And if you do happen to connect with Mr Right, it will be a bonus!
