    Now .. let's exercise our gaydars , all you need is, practice and practice, and experience .

    Here is some information I collected from some experienced gay guy .. and um.. myself.


    1) start from the first sight :

    Eyes - the best way for sending instant messages , one look may say a lot just don't be afraid to look in the eyes and see how does he react.

    Lips - most gay guys have a special lips shape , smile , sometimes you need to go deeper: look at the teeth .

    Hands - Crossed hands , one finger on lips/chin , the way he holds stuff or uses his hands .. all can say something about him .

    Legs - the way he walks : feets are more close to eachother . the way he sits : guys who sit crossleged may be gay..

    Look - hair , clothes , shoes ... but we are looking for the gays who are not easy to find .. the good ones usually . icon_cool.gif


    2) The first talk :

    Voice tone - usually gay guys talk in a high tone ... listen carefully to the "HI!" . .. most of them, not all .

    Is he a bit shy ? - ...

    Sexual tension - do you feel something in the air ? no matter how laidback the guy is , you'll probably notice some anxiety in his talk.

    Signals - be laidback and talk about anything .. listen to his talks and look bitween the lines , he's trying to send some signals .. (compliments, mentioning relationships or sex , friends , nightlife ... , and when he asks about your age .. ? )


    3) observation :

    give the suspected guy a number -accordinng to the information above, for example : I think there is a chance of 70% that he's gay .. or maybe 20% ?

    Watching - watch the guy talking to his friends , acting with male friends , walking , talking on phone , eating something .... it can help you give a better percentage .. or find out if you are right about it ..

    Gay friends - share it with your gay friends , you can help each other with finding out .. or just compete with your gaydars .


    4) don't give up !

    This guy may look straight , he may also mention girls , act straight and trying to look laidback - Is there someone with him ? there is a chance that he won't be able to send signals when there are people around (homophobic friends or family members .. )

    Start a conversation ....ask him out for a cup of coffe, why not? if he's gay then you won ! .. if he's not then you gained a new friend .. as simple as it is! icon_wink.gif


    Now I hope this helps , and good luck for all of you, and remember to keep practicing !

    Wow that is pretty good, My roommate is 100% gay on gaydar, yet still denies being gay and insists upon sleeping with women!

    I have told him repeatedly that he needs to act straighter, (is that a word?)but he refuses and still has heterosexual relationships, loves shopping, loves womens shoes (buying them not wearing them for his GF's or female friends) has abs at 37, and dresses better then I do!

    How can I convince him that he is supposed to like men, or to butch it up a bit? All of our friends think he is the gay guy and I am confused. My hookup...er friend...had a huge conversation with him about little dogs, while I was standing there thinking, are they gonna go off and walk their dogs together? He almost stole my trick!

    Guys like this throw off our gaydar!

    Except for the anxiety while talking to a handsome fellow, none of that applies to me.

    Well, I cross my legs when sitting but only if I can get a good slouch going.

    I pegged one at Walmart. Something about how he carried himself, sorta bouncy, or floppy... guess you could say it was a delicate swagger. He was wearing grey shorts, sneakers, had a crew cut, salt & pepper stubble, nice build. Pretty good looking guy all around, and on the masculine side. Was walking by him some time afterwards and he walked up behind a lady(stretching that term)that worked there and said 'Hay girlfriend!'.

    In all of the categories there I said "may" or "almost".. cuz you can never be 100% sure about someone only from using the gaydar ..
    and for the people who always ask us in the forums "how I know he's gay??" I hope this will help them .. cuz nobody can know unless he's there with the person to receive the signals ..

    And Dancerjack, if you look at how many gay guy are walking around you in the street you'll think that they are 40% of the guys ...icon_neutral.gif

    not all those rules apply. i've found out that i should just trust my initial instincts. when i've second doubted myself i find out later that my initial thoughts were right.

    I agree that the gaydar hints seem a little stereotyped.

    Also, I just want to say that the "acting" in straight-acting does not have to be defined as "performing." It can also be defined as "behaving." In other words, a straight-acting guy is one who naturally exhibits fewer of the characteristics list in the original post (and there are a lot of gay guys out there who are like that).

    GHoSTa saidmost gay guys have a special lips shape


    ...guys who sit crossleged may be gay


    ...usually gay guys talk in a high tone


    This is one of my favorite RJ posts ever.

    Do you think it would be possible to include a hi-res illustration of the "special lips shape?" Don't leave us hanging here Ghostie.

    Think of the opening credits of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

    You know... I think that my neighbor may be gay. The other day after he was done giving me a blow job, he tried to kiss me. What a fag!

    This gaydar exercise is relevant to most of the gay guys .. but even the hard ones "str8 acting" can be cought by this gaydar system .. cuz it's not about look and acting it's also about training yourself how to recognise gay guys by a conversation - starting from the 1st level which is with the easiest guys to recognise..

    Hand position, over all appearance and voice inflection mean zip in my book. In fact, that almost sounds like stereo typing.

    I honestly think to tap into true "gaydar" if thats what you want to call it, you have to be a very quick observer between the eyes and the response in body language another guy is sending after that fast eye contact. It happens real fast.

    Sudden eye contact ( not gawking) that hits the soul. They tend to turn their head down or away quickly after that quick searching glance. Almost ducking for cover because they know you know. They look back again quickly and away quickly. Almost like you've caught them and their body doesn't know what to do with it. Their body reaction is almost nervous but controlled.

    It had nothing to do with their voice, the way they dressed, walked or any of that. For one second you saw behind the facade and they sense it and their body reacts to it. They could be standing their with a girlfriend or wife and nothing kept them hidden from you.

    Exactly , that's right .. but not all of the newbies can use this way ..
    and the gaydar excersice is just a practice until you develope a good gaydar .. and stereotypical gay guys stick out more than the others , no one like this but it's a fact..
