    I always thought gyms were for getting fit and lifting weights.. not scoring randoms. Guess ive been doing it wrong this whole time.

    Anybody here been cruised at the gym and can give feedback as to what the guy does so I can avoid him? Like eye-contact, watching you through the mirrors, etc.

    If you go to work out, you will be left alone. If you're paying more attention to the eye candy than to your workout, some people will assume you're there for another reason. But most gyms are for working out, not having sex, and I think the majority of guys follow that rule.

    it usually always starts with eye contact. which i can barely ever detect at the gym cause i don't wear my glasses when i hit the sauna/hot tub or the showers. the one time i noticed (while not wearing glasses) there was this one guy in the showers (they're communal) who was washing his dick a little too much while facing me. we were alone in the showers when he did it and i was actually kind of turned on cause he was hot

    No. Just focus on your workout and you don't have to worry about it.

    I suspect that you started this thread because you want to know how to cruise someone or you want to get cruised at the gym.

    What about in the gym? The weight area. Following you around? Constant watching? All forms of cruising?

    I want to avoid cruising and guys that do it. So I'm trying to understand the behavior.

    Anyplace that has a fair amount of people who you, the individual in question, finds attractive is a prime place for cruising so that could be anywhere from merely walking down the straight, a gym, your job, etc....

    Basically cruising is checking someone out with the possibility of hooking up with them and it ranges from eye contact to suggestive body language and behavior.

    You are in a gym and there to work out. Cruising shouldn't be on your list of things to do while at a gym unless it's something you intentionally want to do or have done to you. I find it hard to believe that you don't know what cruising is and if you want to avoid it then the best thing for you to do would be to stay at home and never be seen ever again. LOL.

    I get cruised at the gym a lot, but it's like the scared awkward kind or the from the wrong kind of people.

    I'm just trying to understand the difference between genuine interest and not. I don't want to get hurt again by a guy who may have been cruising me. There is a difference.

    So what you're really asking is "how can I tell the difference between somebody who is genuinely interested in a relationship and won't ever hurt me vs just genuinely interested in getting laid."

    Good luck with that. It's pretty hard to tell up front.

    And like the other responders said, if you don't want to be cruised at the gym, ignore everybody, put on your headphones, and work out.

    I think you're making this more complicated that it is.

    Someone who shows interest in you does not necessarily want to cruise you. Furthemore, he's not necessarily gay. He may just want to make friend with you, that's all. But if he really wants to cruise you, then wait a little bit until you have signs that he may be interested in more than friendship with you. What is sure is that only time will tell you if he is genuine or not with you, or if what he wants is just sex.
    Believe me, if a guy shows interest in you, don't ignore him. Maybe will he become one of your best friends or maybe more, who knows?
    Just be relax and it will be all right

    Cruising is just a precursor to meeting someone. Sometimes for sex, sometimes for friends and sometimes for a relationship. Despite what some guys on here think (assuming they can think), cruising is not JUST hitting on someone for sex.

    I think people associate cruising with random anonymous sex (in parks etc), but it really just means looking for a guy in any context.
