    Over the past years, I have been this sight and other numerous sights just talking to guys, hanging out with them, and so on and I noticed something...A lot of times, guys try to say hello, but by saying this phrase, "sup bro", or " Nice pics bro". Now, not that I think this is stupid, I think I am kind of uncomfortable with it. I know a lot of times the guys who message me these things, just want to be friends, and I am fine with that. However, the majority of the time they want to "talk to me" talk to me, and using the "sup bro", or the " sup, you sexy bro", makes me feel AKWARD!!!...lol. With my buddies, like guy friends(str8 or gay) if they use this term/phrase, I am like "yo dude", or "yeah homie", and the occasion "get it, puta!"But, these are my homies, my compadres, and we can say that. I feel with someone I am interested or who is interested in me should use something else. I think I prefer getting a message like"hey sexy" or "looking good baby"or even "hey, daddy". I may not always find that sexy or attractive, but it will get a better response from me than" sup, bro". I posted on a forum earlier this week about liking fem gays, or not so masc gays, and I think to me, this is trying to act more masc, or "straight" ( if you want to call it that) and I guess I am just not feeling it. Maybe, I don't really like the straight acting gays, or the oh so Masc gays, cause I like deal with it a lot. I mean I am masc, but not uber, I do have my flame burning now and then, but I kinda like that sweet wifey(hubby) material that is kind of bitchy, a bit femm, and who wants to call me"baby" rather than, "bro". Am I wierd? Do I even make sense?...I think so, but what do you lovely "bro's" think?

    Some time ago, I was at the gym and an older guy asked if he could work in a couple of sets. I said, sure no problem. After he was done, he turned to me and said.. "Thanks, bro. I appreciate it." That kinda threw me off. I'm more accustomed to younger guys using the word "bro". icon_lol.gif

    In a way, I don't mind. When I was growing up, "dude" was the all the purpose word. I'd say "bro" is the modern day replacement. And in a few more years, it will be a different word.

    I don't know why, but when another at the gym (or wherever) calls me "bro" or 'buddy" I find it incredibly sexy. To me, it's just a masculine way to say hi.

    Yeah even as a really young guy, I dislike that.

    I hate the entire "let me act straight when texting and emailing" thing. It's obnoxious.

    I still get mate around here. Whether it's bro or mate or dude or bra or china, it's not meant to be offensive, it's being friendly.

    I thought only New Zealanders and Queenslanders said bro anyway.

    Hi New Zealand. icon_smile.gif

    The only time I've ever been called 'Bro' is on Manhunt when someone is trying to convince me to slam my fat uncut dick in their ass. The only time it happens.

    That's hot bro.

    My bf had the nickname Daddy long before we met and that is what a lot of people call him, except for me. He says that it sounds ridiculous for his bf to be calling him 'Daddy' out in public.

    I use words like "buddy", "guy", "dude" and "bro" depending on the person and setting. I use it in a friendly open way and usually around those who in my age group and friend circle. I wasn't raised without manners so if I'm addressing someone older then me I will say "sir" unless I know the individual on freindly terms. Often times if I know the person then I'll just say their name.

    I don't mind being addressed by the words above. I find it kinda sexy and I don't think there is any harm in it. it's just another way of greeting someone. I wouldn't, however, call someone "Daddy" in public nor would i want to be called that in public (save it for the bedroom) unless you're a female.

    That's a pretty funny term, straight-acting. Last I checked, women can be straight too. In that twist of a case, "straight-acting" would perfectly describe gay guys who're much further down the flamboyant path. Which leads me to the next point of my misplaced mini-rant. Why is behavior that is perceived as masculine always termed "straight acting"? What if masculine guys like that just are and feminine guys like that just are? Sure, there are those on both sides who display behavior that is so over the top it can only be an act but that doesn't mean every guy who isn't all that feminine is somehow acting out in any way that he is not.

    To the OP, I dislike it when mere acquaintances or people I don't know well address me as bro. I like to have some sort of rapport built with a guy before they bust out with calling me bro. Dude is fine but bro is assuming a level of closeness exists that may not exist. Once I'm close enough to a guy I don't mind being called bro at all. icon_biggrin.gif
