thank you!! I was thinking the same thing. I'm neither metro or homo and I take great pride in my appearance. Your post is much appreciated.

I think that women like having gay male friends because there's no worry about whether or not you want to get further involved. He's your friend.

With straight male friends they are in two categories, those you are interested in and those you are not. But there is always that going on the background.

Many of my female friends, unless they are in an old and stable relationship or are lesbians, only want to talk about men, clothes, hair, or shopping. BORING. I like to talk about almost anything else.

My gay friends talk to me about art, music, literature, culture, politics, society, travel, so on and so forth. And since there's no danger of my being further involved than friendship, we have a grand time.
I'm a straight man, and I have a female friend. She is married. We are Christians so we mainly talk about Christianity. She's also a fan of my music so we discuss music and bands we like. Thats it. There's nothing romantic about our relationship. Granted, she is 22 years my Senior. Also possibly because she lived 1,000 miles away that could also hinder things

There are some women I meet that I just feel friends with. Then there are women I meet who I want to be with sexually.

Sorry, I didn't mean to offend. However, there just aren't very many straight "gentlemen" around these parts anymore. They might be more common down in the south, but the Northeast isn't exactly brimming with them.

You didnt. Im just saying that men used to seem to care more on average about just being well dressed and nicely groomed. So did people in general.

Honestly, the reason I think women are better looking, is well.. probably because they're women. Men look too masculine to me .

I can't speak from experience given my age, but I'll agree that it did seem as if men and women from as recently as two generations ago were much more "refined" and "orderly" in the way they presented themselves. Now, it's a contest to see who can show the most skin and who can gain the biggest beer gut!

I find women to be attractive, especially older ones (Sally Field is a prime example, as are Katie Couric, Diane Sawyer, and Meredith Veiera). There's just some sort of disease, disorder, or something inside of me that makes me more emotionally-attracted to men. I don't know why.

I think Scranton's right.

Men (I'm talking young dudes mostly) don't always look too good here (neither do girls). They don't care about going out on their pajamas, slippers or sweats; unshowered and clad in some cheap baseball cap... I guess that's what makes them men! Machos, you know.

If you do look good, take care of yourself, dress nice and maybe use a face lotion or do as much as plucking your eyebrows, then you must be a homosexual (said by both men and women).

That's how the logic goes.

I'm a happily married straight guy, but because of the aforementioned (careful grooming, good presence, sweetness), 95% of women and men think I'm gay. It never fails.

Well no one thought my granddaddy was gay. I think its the times we live in.

People just don't know what being a Gentleman is any more.

I will admit to picking the newspaper off of the doorstep in my PJ's or a pair of sweats. But that's about the extent of my going out in sweats.

Not sure about crush, but....You know, for the longest time, I liked Matthew Mcaughnahy (sp?) and then the guy from Sweet Home Alabama (her ex, but still married to him in the movie), with Reese Witherspoon. What's his anme? Anyway, 'they both good ol' suth'un fellas'! Oh and I like Harry Connick Jr, too. Ha!
And, I really like Sandra Bullock and Reese Witherspoon - you never see them completely weirded out and they seem very composed and sticking to their "real" lives. Plus, they're both good ol' suth'un gals, too! ha! Oh, and love Rachel Ray and Paula Deen, too!
