    I have to be honest, it's fear of being alone for me.

    Now, dont go making the man feel foolish. It's bad enough he triplicated a thread.

    And as the rules state, in the case of multiplicated threads, only Caslon's count.

    So once you get a man, you become fat?

    I'd agree. So, when my metabolism slows down and my looks fade even more, let's hope that I am at least in a relationship (with someone who loves me just the way that I am)! LOL

    Part of its vanity I'll totally admit that. But its also helped my mental health and kept my seasonal affective disorder at bay during the fall/winter months.

    Fear might be one of the many reasons why some gay men focus on staying in shape. I think better sex and better health are higher on the list though.

    Obviously not all gay men are chiseled. I know many overweight men, and sometimes I wonder if their issues stem from fear...?

    I don't agree at all, there are plenty of fat gay men, but they are invisible to the world.

    [EDIT] I should say that we MAKE gay fat men invisible, by focusing on and worshipping the hotties.

    Dissagree. There are plenty of gay fat guys around. There are a number of sites that I've heard of like Grommr, Biggercity, Beefy Frat...all of those were targeted towards hefty build guys.

    I'll admit that I did realize I was gay, hit the gym and lost 50 pounds, then came out, in that order.

    Cause my general thought was that I didn't wanna date someone fat so I should not be fat.

    I agree with some of the other posters, I've seen plenty of fat gay guys. I do think a high percentage of gay men do stay in shape because gay dating is so hard. We're all very body conscious and it's a dog-eat-dog world out there. It definitely inspires me to stay fit although I also enjoy exercise.

    There are way more fat gays and anorexic gays (you know the 5'10" 120 lb wonders) than there are ones that work out.

    I agree with that. A lot of starving gay guys out there. Not as many on Realjock but in general.

    I don't understand. I eat like a fucking horse and can't seem to gain any weight. I usually eat two breakfasts. The first one when I wake up which is carb heavy. The second after the gym which is protein heavy. I eat all day long and can't seem to gain a bit of fat. I would especially like to get a little bit around my mid section and in my face.

    Here are some examples of what I eat. Am I doing it wrong?

    It was only about 16oz.

    This was made only with 6 eggs and almost a whole avocado.

    GAM....have you ever asked a Doctor about your inability to gain weight? I know someone people are physically incapable of gaining fat.
