    well guys, went to my first gay bar last night...ended up having a great time! I think I was expecting the extreme stereotype to be there...but most of the guys there were just normal, down-to-earth cool people.

    thanks so much to everyone on RJ! You've not only encouraged me to come out, but to try new things and own who I am and what I represent.

    omg I am so jealous! Can't wait to get a life and try too haha. But I don't think I'll have anyone to go with though. Or it'd be awkward if I found someone I knew there. What's it like?

    Was it any particular type of bar?

    I don't go to bars, but I go crazy not having a good place to meet other gay guys, besides online of course.

    Congrats on getting out and having some fun. Nice that you don't have to come home smelling like an ashtray in these times. When my friends and I were just starting to go out to gay bars in the early 80's, we had a blast, and wore hot body shirts and tight 'ass hugger' pants that showed everything we had - even which way we pointed (or 'dressed' as the old saying goes). Our hair was blow dried to perfection, we had summer tans, we were pumped up from lifting weights and our abs were perfect from countless crunches. We thought we were so hot (actually at 21 years old - we were in our prime). Glad you had fun.
