    How can you tell if a guy is into you while you're working out?

    Dunno. Every time I act on something like that, it turns out he was waving at someone who was standing behind me.

    The next time you see him, talk to him, ask him if he would like to join you for a bite to eat, or ask him to help you with sometime at the gym. Couldn't hurt to meet him, and if nothing else you can make a new friend.

    If i were in your place, and if we still in eye contact, i would say ((HI BUDDY, HOW WAS YOUR DAY?))

    Start nice conversation with him, and you will find by time if that was the green or yellow light :P Maybe next time

    I find in those situations it is usually best to drop your shorts, grab your balls and say "hey, do you want some of this?" or at least that has worked for me in the past...ok ok all kidding aside I would say the gym is a great place to meet people (friends and others...) Looks and glances can be very effective but since the gym is a public place that you plan on going back to it is probably best to err on the more conservative side. I know both my partner and I have to confer alot to figure out if the guy in the red tank top is looking at us because he is going to pound us if we keep looking at him...or expects us to pound him after we take him for a drink. Although I would say in this situation this guy is definately interested. I say go get 'em tiger! A drink or dinner invitation is a good start but if that doesn't work out then try the thing with the shorts...

    I'd say he's given you a pretty good signal that he's interested so next time you see him at the gym, just smile and introduce yourself. I can't imagine that he wouldn't, at the very least, shake your hand and introduce himself. After that, just make a comment like, "working hard I see", or "having a good work out?". If he doesn't engage you in at least a quick polite conversation about working out, then I'd just say nice to meet you and see you around. You don't want to be rude in the gym and interrupt somebodys workout. You never know if they do or don't appreciate that. If he doesn't seem to want to chat, let him finish his workout and say hey again next time you see him (unless of course you're in some kind of rush to get to know him). A few polite but short conversations can go a long way to paving the way for a more extended conversation over dinner.

    i think in your case he was giving you the green light, i agree with some of the other guys...try and make a polite conversation, theres nothing wrong with that .

    just changing the subject slightly guys, do you ever find that guys who are with a woman also look at you ??
    whats that all about ??
    i find it happens to me on a regular basis, the look given is more than a curious one, they dont look at you but they look in you if that makes sense ? i tell myself that guys nowadays are far more modern than they used to be and maybe they are just looking at the clothes or shoes or hair style etc...
    what do you guys think ??

    Bring him flowers the next time you'r at the gym. If he doesn't try to beat you up, it's probably love.

    I know im new to both these forums and to the whole gay thing but I was wondering the same thing that eyecatcher was asking about. I was working out after work for a half an hour before the gym closed and this tall, very well built guy got on the treadmill beside me and while he was walking he kept glancing over at me as if he wanted to ask me something.

    The problems with this were that he was wearing one of those "The Shocker" shirts (two in the pink ,one in the stink if you know what I mean) and as we were leaving there was a woman waiting out in a car to pick him up (and she wasn't just the kinda pal thing, she was beautiful as well). The point im getting at is that he stared at me the whole time I was leaving (while he was in the car with the woman) and it threw me completely off guard.

    Could it just be a vanity issue that some beautiful straight men have or was I just imagining things.

    Yeah just chat him up, ask him if needs a spot or just say "hi"
    Even if he's not looking for a hook up at least you'll have a cute new buddy!
