    I was thinking about it and nearly no one in my life circle is gay. There's a few lesbians spread out here and there but as for gay men none I'm close with. LOL I feel like a pariah from gay life. I don't really go to the bars, I don't workout at a gym with men, I don't really go to pride events or anything gay related LOL.

    Most other gay men seem too vapid for me. And most gay scenes are just meat markets.

    Anyone else like me or am I alone on this?

    I think this site is the only gay thing I frequent LOL.

    eh ... friends are friends ... why does not matter if they are gay or not ... just like why would it matter if they are yellow or red or male or female ... what is important is that they are your friends

    To be honest, I don't really get the "why don't I have gay friends" argument. Why does it matter whether you have gay friends or not? I love my friends, they love me, and we have so much fun together. Who cares who's gay, straight, black, white, or whatever.

    I'm not saying its like super important. I'm not trying to fill a quota but sometimes my other friends don't really get certain things about certain aspects of my life. Often times I have to explain things a lot or they just don't wanna hear about it. One of my male friends actually put an embargo on sex talk today LOL.

    I just like expanding my base.

    I've only had a few gay friends in my life, and I only have one right now. I guess it would be nice to have more, but I'm not going to force it.

    Only one gay guy has ever understood me on all levels. We've been excellent compatriots since the age of 15, and I don't have to love him to know that.

    (Pic related: I'm the one dancing shirtless, he's the one jumping up in the air. We dance like idiots every other night).

    Right there with you. But I strongly dislike the majority of gays I have met.

    Some of y'all obviously have more gay friends than you are fessing up to. At least of the online variety.

    No, I don't have a single gay friend in real life. In high school one of my best friends came out to me, but we lost touch when we went to college. The only gay people I talk to are on this website

    I don't have friends at all. I have acquaintances. I generally keep people at arms length.

    Yeah I get what you mean. I just make sure I have one person who can talk to me about stuff that nobody else can if I don't have a gay friend to talk to. Which I don't, at least not at the moment haha

    Oh I'm sorry about that.

    What there something in your life that caused you to be this way?

    Well I thought I had that but the moment these bitches got boyfriends and husbands my butt was left in the cold LOL. I sort of have one girlfriend now who I tell about everything but she's at college and always busy and I think she might be avoiding me because she knows I don't approve of her boyfriend.

    I have a few gay acquaintances, but no gay friends. I go by how well i get along with them, if i can trust them, how fun they are, blah blah blah all the jazz. If someone turns out to be a friend and is gay, cool doesn't really matter to me what sexual orientation they are.
