HottJoe saidIdk, maybe you'll meet someone at the gym. I'd just look for someone with common interests. I would think if you met someone and there was a spark that it wouldn't matter if you both were straight acting. If there's chemistry you'll be drawn to one another.
Gym is kinda difficult to even make friends
I mean friends outside of the gym, not just gym friends. I feel like most people just workout and don't care about that so they don't put the initiative to take it further. I say hi and guys say hey back and we talk sometimes and ask for spot but never goes more than that. I guess I could ask them to hang out or keep in touch outside of the gym, would just feel weird to me though. I don't want the guy to think I am trying to move in on him whether he thought I was gay or not lol. I do want more male friends though, straight or gay.
Depending on where you go though, the guys at the gym can be mostly gay or mostly straight or unknown. I think the best thing is to assume nothing and pursue friendship without having an eye for the guy being gay or relationship material, that seems to blow up in people's faces. I think a lot of gay men do this where they go in with an expectation and when it's not met they leave and don't even consider anything else but what they sought out in the first place.
