We all know the theory that there are only 6 people forming a link between any two people on the planet. It would appear in the gay world that it’s more like 3 or 4.

There is a phenomenon amongst gay men, and not just isolated within a nation but stretching across the globe, that if you meet someone that you find interesting, you only need ask amongst your friends (three will probably suffice) and you’ll definitely be able to find out at least two important things about him. Of course this can be a blessing but it can also be a curse. The fact that in a city like Sydney they are more than likely to know a few of your friends, you are almost certain to get a couple of contradictory stories. It would be nice sometimes I think, to be able to get to know someone without preconceived ideas or impressions built upon heresay.
