    I'm a former frat guy who used to be a manager at a retail store. This meant 2 things. My friends were either fraternity brothers or girls that were into clothes. While I love all of my friends, I've come to realize that I'm missing gay/bi ones that share my other interests. What's this mean is that I do know some gay guys but none that wanna do things like rock climbing, paintball, go to sporting events, play videogames, etc. Unfortunately most of them just feel comfortable being stereotypes and just shop, go to the gym, and gossip all day. I love shopping too but there's more to do out there. And my straight guy friends definitely don't feel comfortable with me talking about guys quite yet. I need a combination of the two.

    Am I just being too picky? And if not, what's the best way to go about finding like-minded individuals? (Hitting bars here in Las Vegas can be tricky. Most gay ones are very clique-ish.) Do you already have a group of friends like the one I'm looking for? How did you guys meet?

    Why do you want your life to be like an awful TV show that thankfully ended years ago?

    If your friends aren't "comfortable" around you then they arent your friends.

    Are you talking about how you'd bang some guy in his ass till he can't walk or are you saying something like "That guy was good looking and we went rock climbing."?

    You say you don't want to be a "stereotype" and go to the gym or shop or gossip all day. THEN DON'T DO THAT SHIT. I highly doubt someone is holding a gun to your head and forcing you into certain activities.

    Do what you want, go where you want and be who you want.

    Unless you are screwing someone or you are being paid to care, don't care what they say or think about you.

    If someone has a problem with it, tell them to fuck off.

    In my life I have found that the more comfortable I am with myself, the more people are comfortable with me.

    I have gay friends who hike and rock climb. I have straight friends who are obsessed with Broadway. Where they put their dick really doesn't play in much with me being friends with them, but I will agree that -- even though it shouldn't -- it can be a hangup in friendships with SOME straight guys if you feel like you have to censor yourself. If you have been friends with these guys a long time I think it will come around that "you're still you" and they will relax. Guys are, for the most part, still eight-year-old boys inside and when they realize the potential for dick jokes, you'll be golden.

    I knew someone would have a problem with my choice of TV show! Lol. It was just the first one that came to mind when thinking of a close group of guy friends. And I'm thinking that you're missing my main point...I do know what I like doing and what I don't. That's why I'm kind of on a search for new friends.

    WTF does "Entourage" have to do with your question? They dont do any of those things you mentioned. In fact, all they do is drink shop party and bang chicks.
