Gay Moment of the Day: Damn I'm pathetic

    Soooo I was at the gym this morning, doing my thing like I always do. I was powering through my oblique bends (65lbs x 15 per side) and doing a superset of abs (the lay flat on a bench, crunch up while pulling your knees to your chest). Anyways, this really hot guy who is there almost every morning I am was working on his shoulders. I'm guilty of checking him out all the time, I'll admit it, but not in a way that he'd ever know.

    Anyways, he asks me if I could spot him while he did 80lb shoulder presses. I happily obliged. Cue my goof up when he first went to lift him, not that it mattered, but he wanted me to push his arms upward for him and just guide him. Oh my god his arms were... amazing. He only needed it for one set which was fine for me... I was so happy.

    I'm not sure if it was obvious or not but I was pretty much putty when I went to finish up my two exercises... I could barely stand after that I was so weak in the knees.

    So that's my pathetic gay moment for the day. I'll probably never be able to be around him again haha. A pity too... he looks like he went to my old uni. I was pondering striking up a convo about it but I figured it's best not to.

    Come on, be a man. Ask him out. What have you got to lose?

    Haha, I don't think he's gay. Plus, I don't need to be ostracized by everyone in the gym seeing that he's somewhat chummy with a bunch of the body builders.

    Looking down and saying "I think he likes you too" = not allowed back at one of the NYC Equinox clubs icon_lol.gif

    Here's how the conversation might go.

    Kuroshiro: So..uh...having an arm day?
    Hottie: Yuuuuup. You?
    Kuroshiro: Abs. I love doing hot guys....I MEAN I love doing crunches.
    It's crunches. I love doing crunches! Not hot guys....well I like hot guys, too...but yeah...crunches......Um....okay. Well I'll be over there doing your biceps....I mean crunches. CRUNCHES.

    AMoonHawk saidAre you sure he didn't ask you to spot him, so he could get to know you better? There is no harm in striking up a conversation ... guys love attention from other guys even though they don't admit it. Just don't get all gushy and 16 y/o girl on him. If you have problems striking a conversation because of his Hotness, just imagine in your minde you are talking to as some really old guy who's not hot at all; it helps break that barrier in your mind. If he is obviously straight don't hit on him or ask him out, that would just make things uncomfortable at the gym.



    ^^^^^^ THIS ^^^^^^^^ He wanted some kind of attention. Go to the juice bar and talk about lifting .... ask him for help in return....... he's probably feeling rejected even if he's straight.

    Really? How about the opportunity for a good friend who's not always wondering about your intentions whenever he gets drunk?

    Agreed, unless you go to a gay gym (like the one in the Castro) I wouldnt assume he is gay.

    Even then, a friend is nice!

    Haha, given the workout routine that this guy does, I don't think he's fishing for attention. He pretty much does everything on his own. I guess it was a missed opportunity for me... oh well. There will be other opportunities I think/hope icon_razz.gif.

    @Beaux: Haha, I could have played that off perfectly, but I probably would have traumatized the poor guy.

    Then again... this guy does have a perfect ass... and most of the straight guys there neglect their glutes... *ponders*. Nah. I think if memory serves me correctly, I think he has a girlfriend that works there or something... idk. He was giving some chick his iPod one time to workout in the the womens room.

    Right. You can let him know you're gay, that you're cool. Set an example of a cool gay guy at the gym who's interested in his workout. And a good spotting partner.

    Missed opportunity. If you did what was there to loose? Find out he is interested in you or not. Now you just wonder...and wait.

    I dunno... compliments don't really go well for me. I'd probably sound like a drooling fanboy haha. At least I have motivation in a sense (I'm sad like that). It put a lot into perspective for me, which is probably another reason why I was quivering from the contact ;)

    Now you can at least say "hello." Let the relationship develop. See what happens, but enjoy the time you had.

    My thoughts exactly. Nothing wrong with having a friend; at least someone to say hello to when you go to the gym.

    If you don't get the vibe from him, then just keep it platonic and friendly. You don't want to put him off just in case he's not interested. If he IS, he will let you know.

    Compliments ARE awkward, if awkwardly delivered, if your intentions are ambiguous.

    When I am complimented at a gym (OK, fuck y'all, once in awhile it happens), it's in the form of:
    1. Ageism. "You're more fit than most guys half your age." Uh, thanks.
    2. Flirtation. "I've been watching your workouts. Great legs." Uh, shouldn't YOU be working out?
    3. Newbism. "I don't know what I'm doing, but you appear to. Can you spend twenty minutes training me for free?" Trainer, over there, at four o'clock, standing with his hands in his pockets.
    4. Straight male-male admiration. "Good pull-up technique; most guys are bucking and kicking." Uh, what? I think it happened once.

    Good god, compliment someone at a bar. At the beach. In public. But leave the gym alone. Compliment technical things (good form, incredible strength, excessive sweating). But leave the guys alone. Sheesh.

    Except if it's a gay gym. And then, why the fuck aren't you naked, bouncing up and down on his boner while he benches, right?

    If you had your cowboy hat on I wouldn't be able to tell your age, really. I'm a horrible judge at that to begin with... haha.

    Compliment excessive sweating? Oh I can just see where that one would go... icon_lol.gif

    hahaha aww, don't worry. At least you got to touch ;)

    Most straight men like comments from gay guys about their success/progress. Just don't talk about their penis and you should be fine icon_razz.gif

    I know what you mean about those gay moments. Had a very similar one a few days ago.

    I am friends with a few incredibly buff athletes, only one of whom I have seen shirtless, but I can tell from clothes and body that the others are also pretty jacked. I was out drinking with them this past weekend, and at one point in the conversation, I put my hand on one guy's shoulder to look closely at him and make some faux-serious point or joke... and when I did so, I could feel his tricep and delt, and how much they were popping through his shirt and how hard they were.
    I literally lost my train of thought for a second, stopped speaking, trailed off, and had to do the (mental) headshake to get myself back on track and finish my damn sentence. I felt like such a fag. LOL
