On the weekends, when you can, escape to Syracuse or any other big town around Ithaca. But I've spent some very happy time in Ithaca and would love to move there. I recommend becoming an active member of the LGBT group on campus. The guys who run No Radio also do dance parties monthly at Korova? Markedly better than the place in Collegetown, IMO.
Your love interest only texts. I've only been in Ithaca for a month and a half, so maybe I will adjust. But anybody who's experienced moving from NY to a small town, or who's dealt with being gay and, hopefully, trying to date while in a small town, please help!
So, how can we increase our odds of finding our perfect match online?
