For whatever reason, I have been approached by four gay men in just as many weeks. This is the first time in my life in which I have been approached by men. While I am not homophobic, it makes me sad that they are not women. I think it is related to the fact that I started weightlifting again a couple months ago and gained 30 lbs. And the fact that I have allowed my facial hair to grow.

Has anyone else had an experience like this?

What was the circumstances in which this happened? I can't recall any incident that's ever happened to me although a couple of times in public places like the grocery store and a shopping mall I can remember gay looking guys who seemed to be checking me out but they never said or did anything other than look at me.

An older gentlemen that works at a nearby salon supply shop openly flirted with me. Another gentlemen, whom I saw occasionally at the store he worked at, has been calling me every day. A waiter gave me his number last night. And there was another guy that approached me like the first man I mentioned. In all cases, I have just been out doing various things, like shopping or eating. At least one good thing can be said about them and that is that they are open with their feelings! I wish women were more like them.

Let's see:

1) Get some fashion tips.
2) See if they have any straight female friends around that you'd like to tap.
3) Let them know clearly and concisely that you are not interested.

That is..if you are NOT interested.

Me thinks he's interested since he's obviously given his number to a couple of these guys. Think he's looking for some of us CD folks to say "go ahead, go for it" or to give him some assurance or something.

Hey dude, when you give your number out to gay guys, dont be surprised if they call you. Geez.

I don't get what the deal is here. I've had homosexual men flirt with me before. Just don't flirt back. Most gay men are pretty respectful if a guy is just not interested. I don't get it.

Exactly my thoughts, I've also had gay men make passes at me....but They can tell from how I respond I'm not interested.

yes but not in awhile. if you will look at the womens magazines the features that male models exhibit are attractive to gay men and straight women.
the catch is that nobody has developed a filter.

It is a little weird that some guy has been calling you everyday. Why in the world would you give him your number?
