When it comes to finding a date the old-fashioned way — without a computer or iPhone app — these boys know that it’s all about location, location, location.

Name: Rob
Age: 25
Occupation: Group fitness instructor/personal trainer
City: Philadelphia, Pa.

Where to Meet Mr. Right: OutFest

"I would suggest one of Philly’s many seasonal events, OutFest being my personal favorite. OutFest, which is held every October — Oct. 7 this year — is a huge festival celebrating National Coming Out Day. The streets are blocked off in the gayborhood, and we do what we do best: look hot and party all day. Everyone comes, young and old alike. There’s a strong sense of community, and while I haven’t yet met Mr. Right, I have acquired many of my lifelong friends at events like OutFest."

Where to Meet Mr. Right Now: ICandy

"With three floors of boys and a demographic that ranges depending on the time and day, there’s something for everyone at ICandy. There’s a dimly lit tavern downstairs, a great dance floor with a DJ on the second floor, and the third floor is perfect with an outdoor deck bar that flows effortlessly inside to another lounge. The most popular drink is the Double Penetration, and it's as much fun as it sounds with two baby Coronas flipped upside down into a frozen drink. I don’t kiss and tell, but I will say the place is called ICandy for a reason."
