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…"
"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…"
"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 have a question about interest in savings account. Is the interest (.85%) added every month? Is this interest taken from the account at the single moment in time or is it averaged over a month, or the year? I only ask because I though my interest would be upwards of $10.00 after a large deposit but it was only a few cents higher than the past few months. WTF.PS. It feels great to see frugality at work. The most I have ever saved. Woohoo. Must keep grinding. PeaceSee More
"Now, now Jon. I know bickering with troll is a favorite past time. But hey atleast this time he is actually following through and working out. Sometimes I envy super skinny peoples, I have a friend that started out twiggy like that. Guy even looked…"

If I understand it correctly, you have a good female friend, her beauty is at least "cute", you like to spend time with her. -> at the moment<- you don't want a relationship or something like that with her.
Well, I agree…"
"will ..just by doing this you are doing what you need to be doing. Getting out there in public is what will make it. ....so folks like me can retweet your posts.
I would also suggest that actually, you are in a perfect position to really capitalize…"
