Does anybody else feel totally out of place in a gay bar?

    I mean I used to go gay bars when I was younger. It was my regular hang out spot after work. However, as I got older I don't have the desire to go to them anymore. I rarely go now and if I do I always feel out of place. I am not a social butteryfly by any means. I only talk to people I know really well. Otherwise I just drink and walk around and get bored. I always end up leaving within 30 minutes. I'd rather be at home reading a book or playing video games.

    I'm still relatively young, and I don't think I could ever go myself as I'm sure I'd end up doing the exact same as op described. Need some friends, then get drinks and become a hot-mess -- I mean, more 'friendly'.

    Never been a bar guy, don't drink much, but when I first moved to Pittsburgh I went to a couple of bars because I still had the Queer as Folk image running through my head. Needless to say, quite disappointed, of course, it was not even filmed in Pittsburgh, double letdown.

    Nope. Feel "right at home" in my fav gay bar(s)/

    Perhaps because my neighborhood bar is also a "gay bar" in one of the "gayest" "gayborhoods" here in the "gay friendly"city of New Orleans?

    One of the many, many reasons why I could/would never live anywhere else.

    Yes, I do. I've been to gay bars/clubs only a few times, both with friends and twice with two different boyfriends. Didn't really enjoy myself, especially when I went with the boyfriends. Maybe I don't understand the concept of a gay bar or something. I'm not a big drinker and I don't really enjoy dancing, so perhaps that's why I feel out of place.

    I dont go either..but my friends beg me too. I feel like I should since it is the only place in Alabama i know other gays will be at.

    I just feel like the aspect of going to a loud place where people are getting drunk and to find someone to screw...just doesnt do it for me.

    Yeah its fun for others, but I just never thought it was fun.
    Everyone trying to be cute, and its too loud to really get to know someone.

    Idk...i never been a party person. Im 22 ...so I guess when I get older I will really hate it.

    btw video games rock

    Tekken and Street Fighter ftw.
