Recently-out Galaxy soccer team member Robbie Roberts covers OUT this month and has this to say about dating:
We’re sure he’s just shy. But inÂ Out’s exclusive interviewÂ (complete with sexy photos) for its August issue, Matt Breen asks Rogers the questions we’re sure so many people have been wondering: What’s his dating life like? He starts by saying thatÂ he’s “very conservative,” and that he did date a guy for a few months in London. “Heâ€™s still one of my good friends, but itâ€™s been tough to meet people in West Hollywood.” Then Breen shoots of this next question…Out: If someone wants to ask you out, whatâ€™s your advice on how to make a good impression?
RR:Â It bothers me when someone tries to hook me up with a friend — â€śYouâ€™re gay, my friendâ€™s gay, youâ€™re gonna love each other.â€ť Itâ€™s like, OK, probably not. It has to happen in an organic way, where someone introduces himself and is genuine and doesnâ€™t want to talk about soccer straight out the gate. When I started dating this guy in London, I just went up to him. Iâ€™m sure Iâ€™ll meet someone in a random place– the grocery store or wherever.
Robbie – a great way to meet random guys is to hang out with me. You can even share my bed…
