M4M

For an Hour or Forever--The Gay Man's Guide to Finding Love Online

Photographer Matteo Trisolini

M4M is a one-stop resource for the millions of gay men seeking love online—it will make the difference between sitting online and actually finding what you're there for!

Millions of gay men are searching for love—and the vast majority of them are now searching online. But while the internet helps bring people together, its anonymity, lack of rules, and easy stage for false advertising often result in disappointing matches. But the right guy is out there. Chances are good that every gay man could find exactly what he's looking for online—if he only knew where and how to look.

In M4M, Jack Mauro offers candid, witty advice on every aspect of the gay online-dating arena—how to (and how not to) compose a successful profile, what kind of photo to use ("normal," naked, and everything in between), the art of direct messaging (from the basics to advanced seduction), "straight" men in gay chats, navigating the usual suspects found in seemingly every chat room, taking it offline, and much, much more.

Whether the goal is a quick fling or a lifelong partnership, M4M gives both the frustrated online veteran and the curious newbie everything they need to know to get them away from the keyboard and into a satisfying real-life connection.

Jack Mauro has written articles for OutPersonals.com, a gay dating site, that examine gay romantic interactions and offer dating advice, and he has written as a columnist for Edge, Boston's leading gay magazine. He's the author of MFM?.
