    Ok so I was running today. I went to go stretch in the room where they normally have sessions, they didn't on sundays though so it was free. As I go in I noticed out the corner of my eye, a guy who I normaly saw there many many times before I'm pretty sure look over to see where I was going. So I'm stretching ect. he comes in and starts stretching too and is super flexible. He then asks me if I can take a picture of him doing splits with the camera on his phone. Then I talked with him a little about martial arts.

    Now I normally wouldn't think much of this but I just kind of tied the 2 things together. Nothing really about him gave off any kind of gay vibes other then the look before I went in the room and the split picture thing. One thing today I was wearing my gay bracelet thing too which I haven't done, I don't know if that caught his eye.

    I also asked my one friend who works at the gym about him. He said hes been trying to figure out if hes into guys too or not.

    So what should I do? Should I introduce myself next time I see him? Is there any questions or other ways of telling?

    You are never wrong to offer a hand of friendship and a simple easy going smile and conversation....IF he's not in the midst of his workout...You got nothing to loose by being friendly and talking about your routines and goals, etc.
    Get a friend first, the rest will unfold if is right....
    Good Luck and have fun!...now get your workout in!icon_lol.gif

    Sneak up to him while he's sleeping, then trim some hair from his scalp -- if you see 3 small "G"s arranged in a star pattern, he's gay.



    Oh wait, that was "The Omen."

    I think sporty gives the only advice that makes sense in these circumstances: just be friends first. At some point, one of you will see the opportunity to drop a subtle hint. That's easy when you're friendly with someone -- much harder when they are strangers.

    Or just move to SF, where you can safely assume any guy in a gym is gay until he finds the opportunity to drop a subtle hint.

    Well clearly he's not intimidated or bothered to talk to you while you're wearing your self-described gay bracelet, so that's a huge step in a positive direction. I imagine there's a lot of gay men who would avoid that connection. So props to you and I say, next time you see him, Make small talk and plants seeds through questions.

    Ask him if he's a top or bottom. If he looks confused, he's straight.

    i think the whole 'take my picture' part was a little creepy. but then i don't know what he looks like icon_wink.gif

    really, though, i'm surprised a gym let someone use a camera phone inside. bad things have happened with camera phones in gyms...

    When he said 'yes', how did he say it. Was there a little smile, like he understood the joke?

    jesus, I want hot guy to hit on me at the gym...maybe a gay bracelet would help. Smehow, I can't imagine myself wearing a bracelet. Even if it weren't rainbowed, it'd still be "gay" where I'm from...

    Well let me say the braclet thing wouldn't mean anything to me, so if I saw you there, I might have noticed it, but I wouldn't know it meant anything.

    I think you should do as some of the rest have suggested. Many of us have met someone (I have recently) that seems friendly and we can point to something that is suspicious about their behavior. It may just be he's being nice and wanted to say hello (and totally straight). What that means to me is that you need to get to know him a little bit and keep trying to figure it all out.

    If it was rainbow colored, sure I would have been tipped off..... if it was a regular one, I wouldn't have noticed.

    And Caslon... I don't need coffee in the morning, I do morning cardio in my underwear, that wakes me up without coffee and caffeine...icon_smile.gif

    Personally I carry a small bottle of holy water on me at all times for just such an occasion.

    Throw a small bit on him. If he starts to melt, then he's definitely a packer.

    Once his screams subside, then you could easily ask him out on a date. And hey, it would make you look way studly to overlook his obviously disfiguring burns...so it's a win-win for everyone!

    Like anyone else here, if I saw you doing cardio in your underwear, I wouldnt need coffee either! ... icon_eek.gif ... But I need photographic proof. I dont think you really do cardio in your underwear....this is all just a big tease!

    But I love the taste of coffee, and the last damn thing my body wants to do in the morning is cardio!

    Come on Caslon, if you saw HndsmKansan doing his cardio in his undies in the morning, your body would want to do all kinds of cardio that morning! icon_wink.gif

    I'm just saying... icon_cool.gif

    Oh and Jlk7jester, listen to Sporty_g. He has it right.
