    Is there an easy way, besides being blunt, to find out if a guy at your gym is gay? If you want to take initiative and clue him in that you're gay, what are some tips?

    In before YCYL.

    You could always wear a t shirt with a gay organization. Or have some gay porn with you on the bike/elliptical (but seriously, don't do this).

    If it helps, you can tell if a guy at your gym is straight based on whether he's wearing a yellow Livestrong bracelet. (Trust me: no self-respecting gay man is going to consciously back a guy who'd dump Sheryl Crow for an Olsen twin. : )

    Thanks to the people who took this seriously and didn't try to make it out as looking for sex.

    Stare deeply into their eyes.
    Or as I call it... Deep admiration of their appearance.

    it's really hard to spot the gay ones from the straight ones, unless they themselves decide to make it obviously clear to you. I had this one guy looking at me, but when I would look at his direction, he would quickly turn away, and it was obvious to me. So yea, but if they are really good at not showing it, they pretty much blend in with the straight boys.

    Bingo. Ended up meeting a fantastic guy who was too shy to come up to me. But with the glorious help of grindr we connected.

    in the whirlpool, this young, white, in shape guy kepted rubbing the back of his head while he was talking exposing his armpit icon_razz.gif, i think this clue would be the same when women play with and curl their hair with their finger if they are interested, i course i ruined it when i asked "can guys be naked in the hot tub"?, he didnt seem to mind replying "yeah, they do it all the time, mostly the old guys" (the one gym location has separate whirlpools for men/women so yes, men can go naked in tub, but not the pool as its co-op)

    I've met a few really good guys over the years at the gym. It's all in the eye contact and/or a nod when you've seen them a few times. Sometimes a simple "Hey - how's it going?" Once I said (to a guy with a wrapped up leg) "Hey - what happened?" Sometimes if a guy is interested, he'll look twice and not just look away - like straight guys do. Some guys will ask you to spot them on bench. The key is not to talk too much and to keep working out. If there's chemistry, you'll just know it and then at the end of a work out you could say something like, "Hey - we should get a beer sometime. Would you be up for that?" His answer will speak volumes. Just be loose, and not a chatterer - - keep pumping the iron - - - and be serious about your routine. Work in a little chatter but only if it seems appropriate.

    Yeah, thanks douche. We're aware of what it means.

    You can now go back to sucking cock in the sauna of your local fitness facility.

    If you're going to the gym to pick up guys, you're doing it wrong.

    It is not wrong to cruise at the gym as long as you aren't a creeper ..... just like it's not wrong to cruise at a bar as long as you aren't a creeper. I don't do either but I'm not offended by someone that does it without creeping me out.

    So to the Original Poster - keep it civil and respectful. If you see someone you like at the gym take JockBod48's advice.

    I tend to socialize on the side with guys based on our common exercise interests. It is kind of interesting to find out if they are gay, but is isn't any priority for me. Having a good time with my workout is... and I hope good things always come from it.. good workout, improvement in health and glad to meet some good new people.

    ... why else would you need to know the guy's sexual orientation?
