Generally speaking young men have a higher sex drive than young women, so it's inevitable that hook ups are more likely.
That's not true of gay culture, it's true of young men. Men, gay and straight, slow down as they get older.
You say you're lonely and looking for friends. What interests do you have? Are there any groups you could join, be it hobbies, the arts, politics whatever? It will help you get out there, and meet more people, make more friends.
It can't be easy trying to put down roots in a new city when the only friend you've got is someone who views you as a potential sexual partner.
