    I mean when it comes to friendly interaction, not "straight" guys on squirt.
    I avoid them generally
    I usually hang around other gay guys or lesbians. Not the dramatic, over the top types, just the plain old gays.

    Like anyone else? I mean we all grew up in a heterosexual society, it's not like their lives are super mysterious or anything.

    I talk to them about stuff that interests them but also intrigue them/make them slightly uncomfortable by not censoring myself about gay stuff.

    Talk about 'guy' stuff. You are a guy; they are guys. You all of tons in common (not being sarcastic at all). Being gay or straight should affect how one interacts with people.

    I love my straight guy friends. So much easier to talk to them than women.

    Meh---could just approach them as if they were regular people like you and I. Their own sexual orientation has little to do with whether or not I think someone may be interesting/compatible enough to be friends, or at least acquaintences with.

    If they don't accept me for who I am then they don't get to know me. Simple.

    ***edit: And vice-versa, I can't really ask someone to accept me if I am not will to do the same for them, straight, gay, whatever. Most of my oldest friends are straight.

    My best friend is a straight guy. I don't have any biological brothers, but I consider him to be a sibling in every way except his chromosomes. Seems strange for a gay guy to preclude developing a friendship with someone due to their sexuality...

    I have a hard time relating to the straight men I know, so it's usually just "Hi, how's it going?"

    I find it harder to relate to women they are so much drama and emotions (or gay guys who think they are women).

    My only close friends are straight. I can relate to them on basically any level except women and football.

    About the only thing that bothers me is the straight guy obsession with describing their conquests and sexual activity (although that bothers me with anyone, but my straight friends seem to make a bigger deal about it).

    Probably the same reason so many people claim straight guys can't be friends with women.

    Contrary to stereotype, most straight guys don't sit around and talk about pussy all day. I don't sit around and talk about dick all day. That leaves 99% of all other subjects as common ground for discussion.

    I find it difficult sometimes. The ones who know I'm gay seem like they just like to fuck with me, which makes me regret telling them.

    <=== plain old gays

    I prefer and seek out the company of other gay men. But I usually socialize with straight guys pretty well, too, as does my partner, when it does happen.

    My friends are my friends regardless of gender or sexuality, if they are good people, who they screw makes no difference to how I relate to them but I have more straight friends than gay.That being said I also enjoy female company as a balance to being around guys 90 percent of the time, not all women are dramatic, emotional wrecks! ;)

    The same way I would with anyone else. You're relating to a person not their sexual identity.

    The sooner you let go of those self-created walls, the sooner you may discover common ground and amazing friendships.

    I relate to straight guys better than any other group but I get along well with most people. All my male friends are straight guys. I like football so that helps sometimes. I have the hardest time relating to shy guys. Being that I'm an introvert, shy guys require me expend even more energy trying to relate to them, which becomes demotivating.

    All my male friends are straight it's easier to relate to them because we're all interested in the same things, even if some of my interest are a little different....

    I have many straight guy friends and fortunately, we share the same interests so it's easy for me to talk and hang around with them. No problem. icon_cool.gif
