Maybe you love dating, but never seem to find the right guy.
Or you hate dating, because you’ve had a string of one-night-stands that never seem to work out.
Or you’re new to the gay scene and not sure how to meet people.
Or you’re straight, but like to hang out in gay bars – and how will you ever find someone just like your best gay friend?
My friends, we here at 365 have folks who will provide all the answers: our newest dating Experts, the Setup Squad.
Meredith, Jon and Lauretta are professional wingmen in New York – they go along with bumbling folks on dates and help them learn how to do it right. They’re also starring in Logo’s new reality series Setup Squad, which premieres in April (365gay is owned by Logo).
I saw the pilot and loved, loved, loved them. I’m partnered now, but boy – I sure could have used their help back when I was dating! (For example, there was the time when….oh, never mind).
Meredith, Jon and Lauretta have graciously agreed to answer your dating questions – and we’ll run the answers for 6 weeks, beginnng April 18.
Their bios are below, so that you can learn a bit more about them. Please reTweet/Facebook/email this around – we want your (gay and straight) friends to have a chance to ask, too!
