    Have you ever asked someone you meet to wrestle? Did you get your wrestling match?

    I was meaning a guy you meet in person. Somebody you’ve sized-up as a likely competitor. Maybe your out running errands or at a park, bar wherever... you ask the guy if he would like to wrestle sometime. I find the sites are not great. I’ve been trying a more direct approach to seeking out wrestling matches. Anyone else tried it and had luck?

    Have thought about it in those situations many times, but if it's a guy you don't know at all that would be an awkward conversation.

    Why is it awkward to bring up wrestling? If you’re talking to someone you’ve met, it wouldn’t be strange to see if the guy would like to play tennis, go for a run or shoot some hoops. I think it’s fine to ask a guy if he plays sports and if he might want to wrestle sometime. The wrestling web sites are not that great for picking up wrestling matches as promised. I’m not ashamed that I wrestle for exercise and competition. I sometimes wear a wrestling t-shirt and many times men will ask if I’m a wrestling fan. That can lead to great conversation that are perfect to see if the guy might want to wrestle. Anyone else tried this method for wrestling matches?

    I have gotten into conversations in the gym locker room and asked if the other guy played any sports, then he would ask me and I would talk wrestling...couple times got me a match and friendship. I also wear a wrestling t shirt at gym some days and got a few comments intially.

    Good luck!

    I’ve had a couple of men come up to me at the gym years back. Out of the blue they asked me if I was a wrestler? When I asked why they both said I looked like one. LOL. The conversation went on.from there, and I met them at their place for matches. It was fun. Something unexpected.

    people pretty much know I wrestle competitively. They tend to just ask the usual questions about it being gay or a turn on. Usually is a discussion I have with them on the various apps or sites. It never really gets to the meetup stage so it isn't an issue for me. But dont be afraid to talk about it if it is something u want to explore. People talk about bottoming and topping within the first 2 seconds so it really isn't that crazy.

    I had recently asked someone to wrestle and he was totally into it. Invited me over and we went at it. I pinned him down and submitted him about five times or so as he was NO wrestler... but we had great fun and he wanted to continue. After he was totally dominated he asked me to go much further with him.... it was a great time and he really enjoyed it and so did I. Although that's not typical for me it was a great experience and memory I will hold onto.

    Yet I agree with Mybud below... you do need to make sure the guy is not "bat shit crazy" as wrestling is just as intimate as sex and risks are very real. All limits and the sportsmanship of wrestling should be respected.

    What a fucking sod. Did you ever get the chance to press charges against him? Or did you just never see him again?
    And I never told you this before, but I spent time in London after leaving Bucharest in 1974! So I'm quite familiar with it!

    No never got chance to seek legal routes so,I let it go and put it down to bad experience,London is ok but it's a very very different world to the rest of the country,not a skit on folk from London but the further north you go life can be harsher but people more blunt and down to earth,and warm were not all chavs or scallys up here that's a misconception
