    I saw an old article on this. The whole metro thing has ruined these predictors as they fit almost every guy at the gym:

    1. Designer Underwear
    2. Trimmed Bush
    3. Speedo Tan lines
    4. Tatoos or piercings in private areas


    Can anyone think of any more? What do you think of these?

    Maybe we could get more specific.

    I think 2xst underwear, speedo tan lines, or a prince albert piercing are still pretty good predictors.

    I know someone is gay at the gym when my traditional gaydar alerts. And it isn't based on any of these things, which any Metrosexual loser can sport.

    "speedo tanlines"???!!! We might wish that all the swimmers are gay, but really...

    Astro glide in the gym bag is probably a better tip-off.

    Oh, and there was the time that the two buff guys I used to admire had a huge hissy fit cat-fight at the smith machine.

    I don't fit any of those... I think you need better signs, since gay isn't exactly a physical thing.

    Usually blow jobs in the steam room are a tip-off

    I'd say the rainbow jockstrap is a good indication.

    A guy staring at someones crotch to see if they have tan lines, designer underwear, trimmed bush, and piercings icon_lol.gif

    Seems like a pretty good indicator of gayness

    This will also stump you: if you check out a guy at the gym, he may avoid your stare either because he likes you (shy, doesn't want to seem obvious) or doesn't like you (gay and picky, or straight and annoyed). I've avoided people's stares for both of these reasons.

    I've figured some ways to find out that someone is sure to be gay:

    (1) They look at you despite being far away and having multiple equipment barriers partially blocking the visual path line to you

    (2) They check you out from behind (which you can see if you are looking in a mirror, or can utilize a multiple mirrors to get a good angle at them and know that they are looking at you while they don't think twice about what you are looking at because they are fixed on looking directly at you)

    (3) Head snaps - very obviously indication of a homo. Straight guys don't do head snaps. Ever.

    (4) Walks too erect, like they are doing the catwalk

    I found some good indicators :
    1. You see someone looking at you across the room and then he looks away, then you catch him again.

    2. He is a few machines away and gradually ends up working out next to you and now his reps and sets match yours.

    3. At this close proximity he is now checking out you stuff.

    Then again he is not gay or bi and you are just wishing so your behavior reflects the above. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Isn't metro sexual just a nice way of saying some-one is gay?

    i've only been a few times, but i picked up on a few types of gay guys and the ways they make themselves known:

    1) the shy gay guys look at you sideways or from under their eyebrows or hat rims, then look away very quickly in order to not get caught, but realize they've been caught and you can see panic on their faces as they speedily walk away.

    2) the cocky gay guys look at you casually, too casually, while doing that annoying model puckered lip thing with their mouths and sucking their cheeks in. often accompanied by the gay tilt (you know, when the head falls back some and slightly to one side, in order to give the appearance of being in an ad for armani or something)

    3) the average gay guy looks at you rather boldly and directly when he doesn't realize you're watching him do it, because you're using 3 inter-reflecting mirrors and he's looking directly at you.

    4) the jane fondas don't require gay dar.

    5) the older gentlemen of a certain age who are confirmed bachelors and came of age in a time without open homosexuality who walk right up and congratulate you on your achievements, not realizing that they're hitting on you (or at least acting like they don't realize it)

    6) the jealous gay guys who throw hateful looks at you and don't care if you seem them do it or not

    7) the horny gay guys who cruise you in front of the whole room by standing next to something and resting eternally between two sets that never happen

    8 ) the chattering gay guys who aren't quite shy and aren't quite average... they are a combo of 1 and 3. they use the terms dude and bro uncomfortably while clearing their throats between independent clauses.

    9) the straight acting muscle bunny. nearly impossible to detect, until you realize that anyone that concerned with masculine beauty (namely his own), is pretty likely to be gay. these vary: look for matching athletic shirts/shorts on some. others are too "clever" to be this fashionable. they tend to talk about pussy alot and very loudly. watch whether or not he's as quick to check out a woman without being prompted by his obnoxious friends.

    10) the new gay on the block who is getting checked out by numbers 1-9 and is given away, not necessarily because of himself, but because collectively everyone else has sniffed him out. he is often looking around himself because of all the eyes on him. might be jumpy.

    Unless you workout in your basement or something. I don't see how you could possibly know that with absolute certaintyicon_confused.gif

    Um I just ASK a guy that catches my eye. But I also work out at a gay heavy gym, in Boystown lol. Its more likely they will be gay than not. I usually just stare dead on smile and ask for help lifting a set. icon_cool.gif

    hahaha, well thats sorta to be expected though, your pretty easy on the eyes.

    Never noticed if I've been checked out though, once I get a set of weights in my hands I suddenly find I'm ignoring everything around me, including the hot guys strutting and pecking around the gym trying to show them selfs off.
