Has a straight friend of yours ever fixed you up successfully with a gay guy?

    The definition of "success" being...someone you actually clicked with even if only for one trick date.

    My best girl-friend that I have known since high school recently set me up with a flight attendant based out of Dallas. OMG she couldn't have been more off the mark! Blows my mind. We had the most uncomfortable dinner--- I really don't have trouble communicating but I was at a loss for words because he was just exactly what I wasn't interested in. Kind of a bragger, somewhat rude and full of himself. He was good looking but in a "what a straight girl finds good looking" way.

    I called her later in the evening and told her how far off she was and she just couldn't believe it.


    Anyway, I started to wonder if anyone had any success with a straight friend matchmaker. I want the details! icon_biggrin.gif

    Only once, Winnipeg 2005.

    I bought two sweet floor tickets from a scalper to see Cher.

    My married straight friends set me up on a blind date with an acquaintance of theirs. He was quite conservative, and felt sorry for the poor guy not knowing what he was in for....icon_lol.gif

    We actually got along remarkably well and met up a couple days later at a dinner party. Never saw him again after I flew back home.

    Because they'd have a hard time finding a gay guy unless they were stereotypically feminine or effeminate so it's not really their fault.

    No. I'm the token gay amongst my straight friends. And I've told the girls at work that the first rule in fixing up mutual gay friends is not to do so just because they know two guys who happen to be gay.

    I guess I'm lucky then.

    I've only been set up once by a straight ex-gf (yes, I'm bisexual icon_smile.gif) and he was actually a really good guy--actually turned out to be my first legit bf. (Although now he's an ex icon_sad.gif haha).

    I was set up with my bf by two straight girlfriends. I guess they got it right. After 17 years we are still together.

    Not only did no straight friends ever set me up successfully, but no gay ones ever did either.
    Attraction is such a nebulous thing you can't predict it for yourself, much less for somebody else.

    I have been set up 'successfully' in terms of meeting someone else who I liked, was friendly , and wanted to get to know on those terms but I have never been set up 'successfully' by anyone for the purposes of anything that is more than platonic. The latter is a big no.

    Nah straight people seem to have a really bad grasp on gay dating.

    they think just because you both like dick that you'll like each other.

    They often times only know those very flamboyant types and so thats all they can offer you.

    So I'm glad no one ever tried to set me up. I did a bad enough job doing that myself.
