C'mon, Will! Henry's impulse is "Come on in, the water's fine!"

Which is not inappropriate.

Assuming they don't live in the same house, I think whenever I went to his place, if at all possible I'd come w/o a shirt. And if not, strip off the minute I came into the warm and ask him, "Where'd you like me to toss the shirt?"

This is what salespeople call "assumptive selling"--going right past an objection, thus making it difficult for the customer to backtrack.

I'd make sure to be shirtless whenever he came over to my place and tell him, no more than once per visit, something like, "If you want to hang your shirt somewhere, that couch arm is available!" Or if one or both of you are nasty neat, "... in the closet there."

Didnt say that right actually, meant to say Im trying to get him to he more comfortable with it when it's appropriate.

A friend of mine is shy about being seen shirtless because he is a little overweight. So how would I get him to start walking around the house with his shirt off more frequently come spring and summer?

A nice encounter today:

I got back to running in the park today.  I kept my shirt off when I got back into my car and drove home.  Since the cleaning ladies were still at my house and I prefer not to be in the way, I kept on driving to Wendy's.  After a three-mile run, f**k it!  As I approached the window to pay, the lady who took my order said to me, "Mucho calor?"  (Is it too hot?)  I just smiled and explained I had just gone for a run in the park.  Given our South Florida winter featuring the low 80s, I'm very grateful for her reaction--simply not a big deal to doff your shirt when you get hot.

Then I ate my cheeseburger in the car while listening to NPR.  So far so good 2015.  Let's keep on track.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Walked to the mailbox in shorts and flip-flops today. Would have gone shirtless, but I'm still coughing. Thought it best not to with the breeze.

You can't find these shirtless guys in upscale gym... only those semi-private hardcore hole in the wall ones

I'd love to be a member of this gym

My gym is hot and sweaty, and still . . .

Looks like a photoshoot to me.

In my gym guys like that keep well covered up, they keep the place pretty cold.

What gym is this?  I need to be a member here!
