1 Direct Eye Contact
Keeping eye contact when you start talking. You should keep your message open, welcome and interesting. In this way, people of your type can receive your signal.
2 Initiate a Communication
This is usually the hardest step so that you need to practice more. You'd better talk to people often, even if you're not sure if they're gay. Asking for directions, making a comment on men's shirts, or even just smiling and saying "hello". If the ice breaks smoothly, you can talk about things that can be seen at a glance (the coffee you drink, the park you are in, the music playing, etc.).
3 Keep Talking
Find out the background and interests of him through open-ended questions and tell some interesting stories. With common interests, the conversation between two men will become easier and easier.
4 Flirt with Him
This may sound scary, but most flirting skills are simple. If you're not sure if the person you're talking to is a gay, you can flirt from the beginning; This can make your intention clear, so that you can judge whether he is the same type as you.
5 Learn to Distinguish Who is Interested in You
This is a challenge for everyone, especially for a homosexual in a heterogeneous world. It takes a long time to be able to distinguish flirting cues (e.g. sneaking a glance, touching consciously or unconsciously, imitating your body language) before you know whether to pursue the person you are interested in.
6 Invite Him on a Date
At first, all you have to do is that simply ask if he wants to hang out together (such as going to a cafe or park). This will make it difficult for him to refuse, and eventually you will get a chance to get to know each other better. If all goes well, you can make a bet to invite him to have a dinner or watch a movie (if he doesn't get rough with you).
7 Become Friends
No, it doesn't mean to be his brother, but to develop an emotional connection deeper than the chemical effect. Take your time and get deeper understanding, and finally lookfor "meaningful" signs of harmony (such as common interests, expectations, humor, and future goals).
8 Fall in Love with Him
If everything goes well so far, it's time to move on to the next stage. A healthy relationship requires self-love, not to mention their joint practice. You two need to compromise with each other, discuss and establish boundaries, and learn to argue. But it also means that there is always someone to support you, watch you grow and make changes. Most importantly, you could enjoy the miracle of loving and being loved.
