    Do you guys have a straight male friend that you have a really strong connection with? One of my closest friends is a straight guy and we have such a strong connection that he often says that he wishes he could have our type of relationship with a woman...haha. NO, he is not gay AT ALL. But, he is an incredible guy. We always joke that when we're out eating and talking everyone else just disappears...ha. Do you guys have a relationship like this with a straight guy?

    The closest friendships I've ever had were and are with straight guys.

    Of course, it's usually found out that they're bi, but that's a non-issue since we're seldom each others' types anyway. True friendships aren't based on physical attraction.

    Guys, I was not speaking of a sexual attraction. I was asking about a SPIRITUAL/INTELLECTUAL connection and strong friendship with a straight bud. NOT a sexual attraction.

    Yes, I have meaningful and platonic relationships with men (both straight and gay).

    My Best Friend is a Straight Guy.

    We have a very distinct connection and sometimes speak Our own language.

    His wife has no problem with it.

    When I was still with My Ex, He had no problem with it.

    Yes I know exactly what you're talking about! My best friend and I are just like you two! There is a group of guys I'm friends with and we have these things we call "porch talks" where we sit on someones porch and NOTHING is off limits to talk about. Its bonding time and a chance to vent to a good friend.

    I actually only have 1 gay friend so all of my guy friends are straight pretty much.

    I'm sheltered... but would really like to have gay friends

    7 of my best friends are straight guys. There is nothing sexual, even when they play hump. I also have this weird thing where if I really connect with a guy, I become less and less physically attracted to him. I know... weird.

    My best friend and I are like that, but I wouldn't want a relationship with him even if we were both gay. We are way too similar, and I'm not at all attracted to him. And to be fair, I doubt he'd be interested in me either.

    Try explaining that to the internet diocese of gayism. They just won't understand.

    Some of my closest friends are straight men. No topic is off limits. They know my fully, and I them. We are very affectionate, but not sexual. It's a wonderful thing.

    This, except for the last 28 words, those I don't really understand at all.

    I have several VERY close guy friends that are straight and we talk on EVERYTHING openly...we are not sexual, but very affectionate and close to each other.
    One (Dan) lives in Phoenix and is a GREAT handsome guy into bodybuilding, and his FB page is LOADED with gay guys. When I pointed this out to him, he was like ...so? They are friends and good for my business and we workout together ....his wife is good with it too.. A few others are attorneys, insurance giants, doctors, engineers, etc....GREAT friends, straight, married, kids, etc. I also have my closest friends are gay, but we are not sexual either, not each others type, etc....but everything is fair game to discuss..... and get called on all types of shit from diet to hook ups, to clothing, sports, health, etc...icon_smile.gif

    This. Friendships with straight guys are, in some ways, more comfortable since the potential for sex is nil.

    Over the past year, my trainer and I have moved increasingly into the friend zone. We've been out to eat; Saturdays, we go to another gym and work out together, then swim laps. Today, he hinted at going on a vacation together. And this guy is totally straight. He's engaged to the girl who cuts my hair.

    We say someone "is just a friend," as though friendship were a lesser category when, in fact, platonic friendship is one of the highest forms of human relations.

    I think people (particularly men, gay or straight) confuse sex with intimacy. Someone told me once that the definition of intimacy was "the sharing of self." Everybody want that. But a lot of times, guys begin to experience intimacy and get uncomfortable because they think it implies something sexual.

    Yes, my straight best friend that I have known since the 1st grade. He's pretty much the brother that I never had. I ended up being the best man at his wedding.

    My college room mate and I are great friends, his wife has been my friend before they were married and I was there when their son was born. We have fun alone or together. Nothing Sexual except that his wife is terrified to sleep alone. I have been desginated the backup husband if something ever happens to Rob.

    I have been secure in my sexuality and they are in theirs so I don't think is an issue.
