    I don't think my success or lack thereof in dating has to do with the fact that I date men rather than women; most of my friends have had equally frustrating times with the women in their lives. Men are a bit more uncomplicated, at least in my experience.

    There is only one man fully devoted to you and totally committed to meeting your every need. That man is you.
    And even you will let yourself down much of the time.
    So, agreed, men are disappointing. Lower your expectations and you'll be much happier.

    I can tell you with all honesty that my partner has not disappointed me. So as a generalization I cannot say that Men = Disappointment.

    Would hope that the majority can agree with that.

    Right now I'm having situations with establishing gay male friendships and it has been disappointing but maybe I haven't met the right people yet. Gay male friendship seems to work much better for me if they are much younger or older it seems. I've met some pretty good friends over the years but the guy will get into a relationship and I somehow will be dropped off of the face of existence.

    My straight friends have the same kinds of frustrations with women too.

    But I disagree. Men are more complicated. Women get a bad rap for being emotional and crazy but I think somehow in a male/female situation, the different "energies" complement and balance each other out. Women, to their credit, like to reason things out and talk.

    But I think men are basically psychotic so when you put two men together, moodiness, stubborness and tesosterone driven daily life becomes more intense. Men shoot from the hip more and change their mind more.

    Seriously, less complicated? If I go out with a few gay friends, by the end of the night there are usually about 2 or 3 things said or situations that have happened that are so confusing and perplexing that I just have to shake my head and just accept that I will never understand it.

    I like what celticmusl said..
    In terms of friendships my friendships with gay men end in disaster.
    But my friendships with straight men flourish and have done for years.Going on 30 or more for my best friend[the first person I ever told I was gay] I was best man at his wedding..he is the brother I never had.And there are others..
    At the job I've been at for a year I've made a lot of new friends, all of them straight men.The younger ones follow me around like puppies- straight as arrows[and for the record I never hide who I am..not that I could anyway]
    And no I don't want to put people in categories,anybody who wants to be my friend can be my friend.I have been very blesed in my life to have more than my share of close friends.My second closest friend is a woman I've known since she was 14... she just stayed with us and we did nothing but laugh,drink wine and just have fun...
    My last good friendship with a gay man was really well..hurtful.It would be so easy to be bitter and say 'no more gay men as friends' but I'd rather still be willing to take a chance and hope for the best...but it never quite works out..
    anyone have similar stories?

    The more muscular I get(and I know I have a long way to go) the more difficult it is to just have decent gay friends. There have been guys that have literally accused me of being too self involved and selfish because of the way I look......without even knowing anything about me personally. They think for anyone to spend that much time on how they look must be all about themselves. They have no idea I only spend a little over 5 hrs a week working out at the gym.....that's less then how much time they spend at a bar on Thursday night. Why on earth would it be so bad to try and get in shape and be healthy?

    Also, couples hitting on you, couples avoiding you because one of the guys chatted with you for too long one night, single guys not wanting to hang with you because they will like a guy, and that guy will like you. Guys that are in shape and just see you as someone to compete with, like beta fish or something....only one can survive....whatever.

    Oh yeah, and there's always the single guy that likes you and chats you up and says he wants to be friends, and in a few weeks, if you're not sleeping with him by then, you are no longer friends.

    I have never cheated on anyone, have never dated a guy that was already in a relationship(knowingly), and have never stolen a boyfriend from someone. It sometimes gets very hard to deal with all the attitude and accusations.

    Men = Disappointment: In what way?

    Are you meaning that you cant find the right man, or after you think you have found the right man, he is a disappointment, or something else entirely?

    In order for me to agree or disagree, I need more information from you.
    What do you mean by men = disappoinment?
    What are/were you disappointed by?

    Are you disappointed because they didn't live up to your expectations?

    Not really. What do you think of when you see "men = disappointment". Do you agree or disagree, and why? A bit like word association.

    The first thing that came to my mind is my male friendships being disastrous, since this weekend I had a few issues.

    Just answer the question, just let it flow.

    And....then there are the guys who are so jaded that when you go out on a date with them you get the feeling that they are looking for it to fail. So you sit there and keep on your happy face and end up doing most of the talking because they have nothing to really say or add. Then you go home thinking, what a waste of time that was.

    A lot of people are a disappointment.

    I've been a disappointment. They've been a disappointment. I suppose I should not judge it so harshly lest I begin to cover up my own faults first.

    The first thing that came to mind was relationships with men.
    I disagree in this case. Personally, I have never been disappointed in a relationship, though yes, they may have come to an end and that inital conclusion is saddening. We seperate but on terms we are comfortable with and resolved any confusion. Let me say though, I have yet to be disappointed.

    If you look for something to be disappointed in, you will find it.
