    Friends come in all sizes and ages, ethnicity too. Keep an open mind, some of most interesting friends I made when I was your age were much older. I still meet people who are much younger than me and much, much older.

    One of my friends knew Harvey Milk while he lived in SF, told me tons of stories that I will never have had a chance to learn about. So interesting! He is 74

    Another friend of mine is 24 although we don't have a ton is common he reminds me not to take things too seriously sometimes.

    I think what he means by "just friends for now" is that if they meet in person, and the friend is hot, he wants his ass railed. But doesnt want to say that to appear less slutty. And if the guy is ugly, he can say "just friends". aka typical 20 something vapid weho twink.

    Ahh... I didn't think of that? Yea you could be right man! I hope he doesn't think I was trying to be "just friends for now" I was never into young boys, I like men and i have a bf.

    Just thought I could shed some light on his situation.

    "no one over the age of 24"

    In Hollywood casting, the mantra is "as long as he looks like he's under 24". What's the difference if one can pull off the job? icon_neutral.gif

    Sounds strikingly similar to Hollywood Florida, too...aka "East Hollywood." icon_lol.gif

    Wow way to jump to the wrong conclusion. Did it once cross you mind that I am looking for a friend that is in the same boat as me? Someone to relate to? A 40 year old would not be able to supply that. I have plenty of older friends already, that does not mean I've reached my "limit" and not accepting older friends. Its just not what I need right now. especially when I am in the process of figuring out my sexualliy. Sex is not even on the table, but I forgive you guys, accusing and insulting a common tactics to hide insecurities.

    And we forgive you. Writing a stupid post and then having to back track because not being able to form an intelligent thought is a common tactic for idiots.

    Come on guys.... the OP is only 19 and is still in the process of coming out. Apparently, he is shy as well.
    One needs to be empathetic and has to react accordingly.

    BTW... The OP has a look-alike of Andy Murray... Do you guys see the resemblance too?

    "Dude youre new here and guys here can be straight bitches.
    However you PUT looking for friends then reply
    "Its just not what I need right now. especially when I am in the process of
    figuring out my sexualliy. Sex is not even on the table"
    What does that mean. If you are trying to find a FWB then the way you came off wont do- way too much ambiguity."

    Is it such a crime to want some friends my age? if so yes go ahead and hate me. I really dont care. I am still in the process of figuring out my sexuality, I for one am not going to act on anything until I fully understand what is going on with myself. So no I'm not looking for a FWB, just a friend to talk/goof and have adventures with.

    "For your 3rd post here, thats really low and speaks volumes about how you come across to people.
    Say what you mean and mean what you say.
    While its not nice to be shred apart,
    You should know how a particular forum works and dont backtrack and insult elder members.
    Ive been privy to being corrected on forums all the time and didnt take it completely negative- just assumed thats how the forum flowed."

    If you read my response again, notice I didn't back track. I just explained a little bit more trying to provide some understanding to those who were insulted by my "exclusion of ages." Yes my final remark was a uncalled for, I had no idea forms could be this riled up lol

    Wanting friends your age is fine. The way you phrased it came off as juvenile. Had your first post been your third, it would have been better.

    When you post that you are just coming out and want a friend in LA, compassionate people here will reach back. But when you end it with they have to be 24 because you arent old, then that comes across as insulting. It has nothing to do with age insecurities, its just rude. Yes, you explained it later with some clarity. But you added the insult at the end, which just made you sound even more juvenile.

    This site is probably the most hyper sensitive one I have ever been on. That notwithstanding, your original post did come off as jerky.

    Your post did not offend me. I get what you are saying. I'm a little surprised that you live in the hollywood/burbank area and don't know anyone that is gay. I would recommend joining one of the glbt groups out there. It is a great way to meet people and there are a ton of them. You just need to find something that interests you. Meeting people in person is the best way to develop a friendship.

    Try this link and see if you can find something that interests you:

    http://www.glbtnearme.org/

    If you are looking for a specific type of club, like a hiking club, a specific sport, let me know and I may be able to find something for you. icon_smile.gif

    One thing that I would recommend is that when you choose who to let in your life, choose people that you can respect and admire for who they are. Try and stay away from negative people and people that take advantage of others.

    If any of these look interesting, let me know and I can post the contact information for them, or you can do a google search ;)

    You sure you don't mind older? I'm 44. That's two 22-year-old friends in one. ;-) Either way, good luck. I remember when I didn't have gay friends. I don't miss those days at all.

    Trollileo saidAnyone in Seattle? I want friends, too. I only want friends older than 24, though, because I'm sooooo mature and people my age can't related to me.

    To be less of a sarcastic dick, I'm quoting this awesome post:
    Kalifornication saidFriends come in all sizes and ages, ethnicity too. Keep an open mind, some of most interesting friends I made when I was your age were much older. I still meet people who are much younger than me and much, much older.



    Fu#% You all! I don't want any friends!!!!!!!!!!!icon_twisted.gif
