forest saidYou guys have been giving me such good advice, so hear I go again!!! I go to my campus gym daily, and there are these two guys that are always in there at the same time. I always catch them looking at me, then we make awkwardly long eye contact with one another. However, I don't know if this just happened by chance one time, and they are just curious and maybe think I am the creep. Or what? And I will say that they are both gorgeous and huge!!! But no guy has ever held a stare with me in the gym for as long as they do. Today I was on my way to play basketball, and one of them was casually walking by, but awkwardly said, "Hey man, how are you?" So please give me you thoughts!!!
In my recent personal experience, straight guys at the gym do stare and they are friendly and will say hello outside of the gym. I have had quite a few stare downs recently with some dudes at my gym. Some have turned into friendships and others just faded. But they are all definitely straight. I have had a few queers stare me down, but they usually will only chat with me outside of the gym on grindr / scruff.
In regards to you situation, just go with the flow. Do your thing and be friendly. You don't know the situation right now and making a wrong moves so to speak may make things extremely awkward for you in the gym and that would really suck.
In regards YCYL, while yes, "cruising" in the gym can be creepy, don't be afraid to meet someone at the gym and even go on a date. If you can't meet someone at the gym, then where the fuck are you supposed to meet guys.I personally prefer to meet guys when I am doing something that I love.
but definitely in your situation don't make any sudden moves without true knowledge. There are a lot more guys out there than there are good gyms.
