I think the key is background creating barriers, not you. The men in my family have been utterly homophobic my entire life, but my mom (who raised me when my dad dropped out of the picture) was friends with several gay men, so I never thought…"
"I find making real friends with other guys almost impossible, never mind what their sexual orientation is.
All of my current real-life male relationships really fall in the "acquaintance" category, even though I've known some of them…"
"Men choose friends for many reasons - some men have had more choices then others. I don't spend time with men that think I'm great - want me to listen to them about their home life, wife, kids - but get squeamish…"
"Most of my real friends are straight. Most didn't know me when I came out ( that was a long time ago.) I am not in the closet in the least. I guess I am lucky. I will say that most of my friends are well educated - perhaps that…"
"This is a very complex issue, and my answer is going to be commensurate with that complexity.
- Homosexuality is a specific sexual orientation. It is an innate trait. Gay is a cultural affinity that is over-layed on many people within the…"
"As with all things, i think it has a lot to do with the individual person. I do have one gay friend who is a "Flamer" (his own words, and even that may be too mild a description), and i just find him entertaining. I have another who I was…"
"Gay men (who act "gay" in the stereotypical sitcom way) remind me of the type of women that I don't care for too much. Straight men with few exceptions don't care for that stuff. Men tolerate it from women because of ... well, ya…"

"Actually, no. Most of my friends who are gay, were already out when I met them. Now, perhaps, I'm a statistical outlier, but I don't care!
One of my friends is the father in a house of practicing witches.…"
"I totally hear you. I could be labeled as a 'gay man'. Sometimes, I find it difficult to be friends with other men in general. I know that I am a fickle creature, and tend to run away at the slightest scare.

Currently, you can buy insurance in your home state, and largely no where else. You say…"
"Just stop in your defense of Nokia. It's silly and rather embarrassing for you. GSM and LTE are standards, both with underlying American technology. The GSM standard was the product of a multinational European committee. …"
For those with a love of the ocean and can't bare to be parted from her for long. It doesn't matter how you love her - be it surfing, sailing, scuba, or just plain swimming - as long as you appreciate her wonders and furious beauty.
"As a doctor in Europe I can tell you that most doctors here (or anywhere) would chose to work in the USA if given the choice. People can talk about it being due to higher salaries or whatever. My point is that as an industry the USA healthcare has…"
