Many of our clients have reported positive experiences at this location with more than a few sharing they met their boyfriends there. If you take the right train at the right times, there is a good chance you will run into others who happen to be a “Friend of Dorothy”.
Now obviously you will want to use caution and think about safety because public transit here in Chicago has sometimes had a history of problems.
But if you are feeling a bit adventurous, we encourage you to read the following article that lists the best train routes (including times) for meeting someone special on public transit.
This point is particularly true if you struggle with being around big crowds and jam packed social scenes.What follows are five places for you to consider for meeting someone new that are entirely based off of the anecdotal feedback we have received from our clients.This short list of possibilities certainly isn’t exhaustive but it does highlight the “biggies” for gay men in Chicago. Generally speaking, you will see many gay men coming in and out of this area because the market itself is a favorite among local LGBT individuals.If you are gay and hoping to meet someone new, you will want to grab a light lunch from the self-service area at the Whole Foods, centrally located in the heart of the “Boystown” at 3640 N. Once you grab your eats, bring it to the shared lobby space that separates the grocery store from the Center on Halsted. It also happens to be home to “The Center” – a community agency providing an array of services to the gay, lesbian, bi and transsexual populations here in the city.And yes – you need to absorb what is being shared with an eye for humor.

The gay bars in Chicago can be a fun place to hang out – particularly if you are looking for a spot to chill with friends.
But if you are like a lot of gay men who visit our Northside counseling offices, you are probably wondering about different places to meet someone away from the nightlife scene.
Let’s be honest for a moment – the bars along Halsted Street and in Andersonville are not always the best places for meaningful conversation.
Who wants to compete with loud music, loud voices and loud personalities?
