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.

"Haha that's true! Probably will just nut up and do it today though.
As for the fraught comment - not any more, never been happier - i just had a couple of problems with alcohol and depression that made me not very nice to be around. All good…"
"Its a matter of perception. Let it explain with running.
I go running since iam 14, i enjoy it, there are multiple reasons why i do it, its healthy, it makes my butt look great but the main reason is that i like it, i enjoy it and might aswell be…"
"What iam saying is that the purpose of life and the purpose of ones own life arent the same thing.
The purpose of Viagra was to heal heart diseases and yet what it does is to bring boners. It doesnt matter what a thing is supposed to be, a thing is…"
"Most commonly, front end vibration that only manifests over 65 mph - yes, and Escort and a Merc are both likely to suffer from either wheel imbalance or other front suspension problem. There are few other things it even *could* be - regardless of…"
"Surprise! Surprise! Surprise! Those channels, including the new American Heroes Channel are ALL owned by Discovery. Same folks, different brands for different niches. Only reason there's anything on about WWI is there's…"
