    I just wanna know who they are. Best place to meet someone is a place of common interest right? So how do I go about finding out? I don't want ppl to think I'm using the gym as a stable. It's like a family. And a good amount of ppl there know I'm gay and are facebook friends

    Get them in some sort of bear hug and see if they sigh and go limp in your arms

    I think if most of them already know you are gay (which means they all know ... people talk) then if there were any others they'd introduce themselves .... you might be the only one icon_sad.gif

    I've been involved with MMA since I was a teen. Most guys there weren't gay. But we got a few on occasion at the MMA gums I went to. Bed bet is to join one and just get to know the guys.

    "I'm using the gym as a stable"
    Jesus...yes

    What does it really matter?
    Like my MoonHawk said people talk, just be open to comments, winks, offers to spot.
    Sometimes we get so into our workout we're not paying attention.
    oh, and start looking for a new gym.
    because

    Trying to find someone to go out with who has a common interest does not always equal YCYL. If MMA means a lot to him and wants to have a partner who shares that passion, then where is he supposed to look for someone. And yes, single people do have to actually look for guys. They usually don't come knocking on our doors.

    Now if he were hanging out in the locker room to see who wears Dolce & Gabanna or any other super designer underwear then that would most likely be a YCYL moment.

    Makes me nostalgic for '80s-'90s Chelsea Gym. You cruise, you win.

    Im just open about the fact that im gay so any closet cases wont have to wonder. Not looking to hook up at the gym. Bit of respect for the mat and my training partners and coaches. Blink on the other hand...Btw what does YCYL mean?

    Just bustin on you
    YCYL
    is: You Cruse You Lose
    a mantra started here a long time ago by a member who like others believed the gym was a place to work out; not a gay bar.
    Personally I believe if you make a connection it doesn't matter where it happens and if you spend that much time in the gym it's a pretty good chance it will happen.

    I'm a martial artist. despite the.popularity fighters are.a rare.breed.so finding gay fighters are.even.harder.

    I did find a group on meetup.called the "gay martial arts group" in ny. I trained with the group a few times last year
