    I have a couple, one is my brother! I would never take them to gay clubs or bars though.

    Absolutely. Half of my male friends are straight.... some going back to when I was in high school, college and law school. Some know about my sexuality, some don't.

    yeah. both brothers in that family kind of way that i can talk to them a lot. otherwise, yeah some close friends, but not "great" in the way of we talk about the important things in life often. though i'm masculine ... or quiet, which one is it ... enough that straight men--japanese, american, european--are all comfortable enough i can be the envoy between the girls & the boys.

    Nope, most of my friends are girls and most of the guys I would call friends are gay.

    I used to have one though. All through juniorhigh, highschool, whilst being an undergrad and a bit of being a grad student, then he came out.

    Yes! My best male friendships are with straight men. They are not judgemental about my clothing, vehicle or home/neighbourhood. I have yet to meet one that has bitch potential.

    As long as I have a sincere regard for their interests they don't give a rat's ass about whom I sleep with. Often, I find straight men are more comfortable discussing general emotional issues because they can let their guard down with me, opposed to other straights.

    my mates, straight and male, there the best, no judgment, don't usually try to get into my pants, comfortable with them selfs, don't give a rats arse about anything else but me, as Mileman said, its not about the car, clothes, money, this, that or the other, its about me and they don't give a shit any other way, just as long as I have fun with'em and love'em were all good icon_smile.gif

    I have one mate whos guy and we are friends, its all very none sexual, we've no sexual interest in each other, but he does keep me at arms length so we aren't best of friends.

    Yes, i have many straight friends and i love them all.

    Some of my gay friends got irritated when I invited my straight friends to a party. I did not understand that at all (well i am not longer that close them therefore).

    I am proud of all my friends I have, no matter what age, sexual orientation, etc.

    It is great to share time with people that you like and who appreciate yourself as a person.

    Cheers and a happy new year

    Most of my close friends are girls but I do also have close friends that are straight and male. We go back to freshmen year in high school, had a falling out sophmore year, became friends again later on, and just recently I came out to him and he was okay with it. I'm back in my hometown for winter break and we've been hanging out as if nothings changed. I feels great to feel accepted.

    Most of the friends I can really count on? Straight.

    I have a handful of gay friends I could say the same about, but nowhere near the amount of straight friends that would be there for me in a heartbeat.

    Most of the straight friends I had became homophobes after I came out.

    Haven't spoken to any of them ever since. Not like I need them in the first place anyways.

    Great straight male friends? ABSOLUTELY! Pretty much all of them know I'm gay and don't give a rat's ass. We go do things most of my gay friends won't too. I actually spend more time with my straight friends come to think of it...

    Pretty much all my male friends are my best friends. I love them all. They made coming out so much easier and they never treated me different...not even for a second.

    90% of my friends are straight. Unfortunately most of my gay friends live in different cities than I do now.

    Best friends are straight men. They know I'm gay, but have no problem with it. As a matter of fact, I have been friends with a couple of them for over 20 years now.

    Most of mine are straight as well. I met a very small handfull of gay guys who are friends but unfortunately none live within my area and we are inevitably drifting apart.

    My guy straight friends at work are so awesome. There are a couple that I have become close with and they ask me how me and my bf are doing and we exchange sex stories, complaints and all that stuff, just like one of the guys, they are so awesome...I really value and respect my friendship with them.

    My best friends are all straight. I tend not to make friendships all willy-nilly, or based on similar sexual preferences. There's a miniscule number of people who I like well enough to consider good friends, and since the number of straight men is far larger than the number of gay men, it's just statistically greater to meet someone compatible who is straight.

    I definitely keep my one gay friend at arm's length too. Don't know why I feel uncomfortable around him and his group of gays... but I suspect it has to do with my not really liking the majority of their cultural touchstones.

    My closest buddies are almost all straight. Although how I have been raised the larger group of friends are always mixed, not a big fan of segregation of any sort and only like to hang out with accepting people.

    Just got off the phone with a straight buddy of mine who's getting married! I joked with him that I won't get the chance to turn him queer. We both laughed. I cried after I hung up. Tears on my pillow dear diary.

    All of my friends are straight, and they know I'm gay. I'm just completely lacking gay friends. icon_confused.gif
