"Yeil, 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…"

"I have had I kind of friend that I call an activity buddy that I get involved with to start  something new like a cooking class or work out buddy that I find the gym is all we really have in common. "

"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…"

"What exactly are the woman-like behaviors you've seen from gay men that caused you to not want to be friends with them?"

Doug Davis replied to Yeil Rhine's discussion Making straight friends as a gay man.
"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…"

Rick Shelton replied to Yeil Rhine's discussion Making straight friends as a gay man.
"That is a problem with many gay men that I've known.  Just as women have difficulty in having platonic friendships with straight men gay men have the same difficulty with other gay men.  Common denominator?  Sex pure and…"

Rick Shelton replied to Yeil Rhine's discussion Making straight friends as a gay man.
"I think that often a straight man's problems with gay men is the incongruity of seeing someone who by outward appearance is a man but acts or portrays the activities and characteristics of a woman."

"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. I've…"

Evening, gents!

Been a lurker here at AoM for years. Decided to become a member a few weeks ago and thought I'd introduce myself. The community has been great so far. It adds to the AoM experience quite a bit. Anyway, my name is Landon. I'm not much use physically thanks to a type of tumor I have, so I like to work on my mind rather than my body. Some of my favorite articles from AoM are Ben Franklin's 13 virtues and the 3-part series about willpower, how it's depleted and how you can strengthen it. Well,…See More
