    I was talking to someone the other day and I realized I have not one single gay friend or even really any aquantainces! Well theres one kid who lives close to me but he's only a friend when its convenient for him and will only contact me when he's bored and his "better friends" aren't around. Other than that, there's nobody. That normal?
    any of you like this?

    Im like that. I know a few gay guys but I wouldn't hang out with them and am not friends with them...I did have on friend who I was close to that was gay but we lost touch 5 years ago...icon_confused.gif

    All my gay friends I have now are off this site who I have yet to meet in real life...

    I have one gay friend and he's pretty awesome! Most of my friends are straight guys though (none of which have an issue with me being gay... which is even more AWESOME)!

    I don;t either...it's so weird.


    I have a lesbian friend and a bi friend both are females...but I cannot find a gay dude to save my life. I know a couple but for some reasons the fem ones tend to be bitchy to me,

    It's really odd.

    I have a handful of openly gay acquaintances. None that I'd consider friends though.

    I've got a few gay acquaintances. But my true friends are straight and are the ones that I grew up with.

    I don't either, that I'm aware of. I think it's normal.

    Plenty of straight friends though, those dudes are everywhere.

    Only 1 gay friend and we've actually known each other since 2nd grade. We're not as close as we used to be, but he's still one of my few true friends.

    I don't have any straight friends. It's not them, it's me... I really just don't feel comfortable being around breeders. I'll put up with them. Live and let live, you know? But I wouldn't want one in my house.

    I only have one gay friend. We aren't really close. His life is so much different than mine. I was "married" and settled down at such a young age, the friends I had the most "life" in-commons with were my straight, married friends. We could relate to each other because we all had the same kind of life. Most of the gay guys I have ever encountered were more into being single and carefree, not interested in settling down, and going out to this or that club all the time. I couldn't relate to them or their lives. Even now, that I am single again, I would prefer going to a regular nightclub versus a gay club...and believe me, everyone knows I am gay, and no one cares...but because I relate easier to straight couples because my life more closely resembled theirs, it's just the kind of crowds I gravitate in. The only thing I would be missing at a regular club is possibly the opportunity to meet someone...but since I am not going to find future husband number three that I want for myself in a bar, that doesn't matter to me either, LOL

    The same here.
    Mostly because the only place where I live that you find them is in the 'village', and since I'm generally not into the "scene", it makes sense that I'd have no gay friends.
    Outside of the scene, people hide it very well so I can never tell if someone's gay or not.

    When it come to gay acquaintances, I have tons and only 3 of them are close friends! I value their friendship a lot! Prior to them, my best friend (and still is) is a straight guy whom I've known since the 1st grade. I love it when my partner and I hang out with him and his wife.

    Is it weird that you don't have any gay friends? I'm not sure because I think friendship is based on the bond you share with that person and sexual preference is irrelevant!

    Friends are friends. Does it matter what their orientation is?
    Doesn't matter to me.

    To answer the question, I have one gay friend. And yeah it's normal imo.

    ha ha ha its funny you say that because i do not really have any gay friends either. i barely have any friends. i have a small group of friends in my life. i can count them on both hands. i have two good gay friends and they are a couple. that is it. every one else is just acquaintances.

    No gay friends... I don't mind it most of the time. But sometimes I do wish I had one so I can talk about what I am feeling, if I need to vent, or someone I can relate to who understands me since I am not out. icon_neutral.gif

    I guess usually gays don't make friends with other gays.
    They either fuck, or hate each other.

    I do make some new friends lately.
    Lucky!

    I've never had a gay friend, which I'M not exactly proud of.

    All of the gay guys that i've known have either become boyfriends, we've hooked up, or we were never close anyway.

    none here either.
    Well not exactly true...I have a few but my friendships with straight men are much more sincere and stronger.Love my straight buds.
    Never planned it that way anyone who wants to be my friend can be my friend.
    I don't think gay men really like each other as friends that much...Maybe its that sex is always the elephant in the room...

    Apparently it matters to enough guys here (on some level) to not make friends with anyone gay.

    Kind of limiting yourself, isn't it?

    I don't think it's normal. Having gay friends are the best thing on earth. I love mine so much.

    It seems like a bad idea to me, to have no gay friends at all. Sometimes it is good to chat with someone who knows where you are coming from.
