    Hey, everyone. As a gay teen I found high school fairly isolating when it came to relationships. There were a handful of people out at my school (about 4) who I was friends with, but there wasn't really anyone I was interested in because the options weren't really there.

    I'd like to know if those who are LGBT+ and at college have found it easier to find and connect with more people within the community after moving to a different environment. I know you can't tell me if I'll find anything romantic in college, but I'd just like to know if it gets better.

    Edit: I'm talking about college, not university. I live in England, not in America. My secondary school had "high school" in it's name, which is why I said high school.

    Personally I am not gay, however I lived with 3 gay people in my first year at university. They all loved university due to the sheer diversity, I didn't even know but they have their own little groups around.

    If you go somewhere developed, you will have no issue.

    American? Oh god, depends where you are as LBGT acceptance is 50/50 in USA. In UK, where I live in South East there are minor homophobic but not much, they don't talk to you but don't dislike LBGT. (Most conservative place in UK)

    Well if there is a society you can join you might meet people but if not its harder as some people aren't as open about their orientation.
