    I dunno how many gym rats we have in here, but for those of you who are, what's the etiquette for cruising guys at the gym? I'm just asking because I was at a new gym tonight and this guy was cruising me in the locker room. He was a little too feminine for my liking, but that's beside the point. Is it ok to cruise guys in the locker room? It seems a little too private an area to be doing something like that.

    IT depends on the gym

    When I was in Boston, the gym locker room was THE place to cruise.
    As a matter of fact, I met my first boyfriend in the sauna.

    But, now that I'm in New Hampshire, the locker room is definitely not the place to cruise. NOVAJock can tell you how to cruise the NH gyms since he's met multiple guys at the gym.

    :rofl: :slap: Bitch. I have not! I've only met one at the gym and look where that ended up. He had more baggage than the family in National Lampoon's European Vacation.

    I never did find out what happened to him, but no sweat off my balls...:o

    Oh btw, the Methuen Golds Gym? Holy shit...:naughty: :drool: :yum: :naughty: :drool: :yum: I could have done cardio for hours! :rofl:

    So where are all the decent men who have their shit together, their heads out of their asses, and no baggage, at???:o

    Be careful at the gym.. a lot of people go there for one thing only. Wait for some sort of sign before you make a move.

    I've been hit on at the gym by men and women.. and to be honest, it was somewhat obnoxious. I'm there to get in shape and build.. not to get my sweaty stinky game on.

    I found mine on a blind date, which was set up by his ex-fiance, oddly enough.

    I have always depended on the kindness of ex-fiance's

    Also, if you can sing, join the Boston Gay Men's Chorus ( www.bgmc.org ). Lots of really GREAT guys there with little to no baggage. I met a ton of guys there... (pretty much slept my way through the Bass section, to be honest. But, that was becuase I had JUST come out of the closet and I was in really great shape. So, I was young, cute, and horny at all times. It was a good time to be around 150 gay men)

    And, if you like exercise/outdoors, join "Chiltern" ( http://www.chiltern.org/ ). They are a gay outdoors group that hikes in the New England area. Some guys with baggage, and many are in their late 30's/early 40's. But, Mike and I are members and my gay brother is also a member and VERY actively involved in it.


    edit: So, all these other men, ex-boyfriends, and friends that you see at the gym... You met them other places and they just happen to be at the same gym, huh? riiiiight :fawk:

    ~slap~ The couple of friends I met down in DC, I met at the gym. One of them is still a very good friend. The other, well, you know where that situation went. :rolleyes:

    As far as up here, Keith was the only guy I met and dated from a gym. Again, he had more baggage than Grand Central Station.

    All three exes I met online. Obviously, I'm seeing a pattern here, and won't be taking this approach again. :rolleyes:

    Geez, ya make it sound like I meet a ton of guys at the gym. Totally not the case.:slap: :fawk:

    I have little time to go to the gym now. All through august I went, and when school started back up I at least tried, but now I'm like meehhh...sleep or gym? sleep.

    But when I was there I didn't really want to be bothered by anyone.

    There's a general line of respect I choose not to cross. This includes hitting on people in a locker room.

    I don't cruise at all...the most I'll do is talk to a guy. If you want to continue on, take it outside for the sake of everyone else.

    Insecure? How about no, Scott? I find this whole issue quite distasteful, as it's really no different than straight guys cruising the women's locker room looking for love. Take it somewhere else.
