    What is the proper thing to do if there's a guy in the gym you would like to talk too maybe ask out, but your not sure if hes straight or gay ?

    What's that weird noise I hear coming our way ? Sounds like a road signal or something...

    While I have no direct experience in this I imagine it's much the same as anywhere else.
    You try to strike up a brief conversation followed by an invitation somewhere neutral (like want to grab a smoothie on the way out, or a blank at the blank).
    The point is you make it something that's very simple to do, but is also simple to bow out of.
    If they're interested, they'll probably say yes.
    If they say no, they're probably not interested. (Whether it be because they're straight or whatever other reason.)
    And if they say no, they just said they didn't feel like a smoothie/sandwich/whatever. No one loses face and no one feels awkward.

    Easy peasy. (This isn't hook-up advice, I imagine that's a bit different, but not advice there when it comes to the gym.)

    It's all about the eyes, man. It's the gay stare. icon_eek.gif Make eye contact with your victim (sorry, I mean your man), and if he maintains eye contact, then there is a good chance that he's also into you. If you walk by him and look him in the eyes, and he doesn't look away or break eye contact, then there is something there to work with. If he looks away or breaks eye contact, then he isn't really interested. Proceed from there. It's all in your hands, now.

    Does he have a nice body? If so, ask him what he does to get his triceps,biceps, or whatever he has nice. Then see where it goes from there.

    Sometimes an ice breaker is to wait until they do an unusual exercise on a machine. Gives you a chance to ask them what parts are they focusing on.

    Some guys love to offer advice. Some also don't want to be disturbed. Timing is important here.

    +1 on eye contact. Definitely

    Hmmm, explains why the old ladies are always asking me what I'm doing on certain machines

    last I heard he was wondering whether to hook up with a friend of his or not

    Cruising people you donĀ“t know is for amateurs. Just seduce ur friends instead.
