Man Dates - Page 2

post #16 of 26
I have never really even thought of the "man date" thing, it never has occured to me to look at it in that fashion, but I guess it is....I would suppose we really had a giant "man date " in DC, even though there were a few women there, their presence was definitely over shadowed by the men wanting to get to know each other and learn a bit about the true people behind the indetities of the SF members. The women seems to really be in conversation among themselves more than anything. Even at the meat market bar we went to, nobody really much paid attetion to any of the ladies strutting around the bar, but more to the conversations of the shoes etc we men were having.

If I heard that two guys went to the art museum together, then went to dinner together, I would assume that they were gay. What kind of straight man seeks out that kind of entertainment with their buddies? This is why we have golf, so there are no questions asked.

But that's just silly. I know several gay guys who golf that give new meaning to the term "foursume."

I don't even know what the old meaning of "foursume" was.

People sometimes golf in groups of four. That's what it is.

Last time I hung out with a guy friend I hadn't seen for a long time, the waiter at the restaurant we went to gave us 2 spoons for 1 dessert.    We ordered two different dishes...
Yeah, that happened to me as well - I mean what the hell is that about? Mind you they've done that to me when dining with female business collegues over lunch - it just seems to me to be a stupid assumption regardless of the sex of the person you are dining with. I've had this done with appetizers as well now that I think about it - I'm like Joey - I don't share food damnit. Must be a hunter-gatherer thing.

One of the letters to editor in this Sunday's paper put in perfectly. "A lot of space to say very little."

Umm... I guess I do? Golf is wretched, interesting events and conversations with friends do not interfere with my ability to have sex with women.

I think this depends a lot on your place of residence. A New Yorker and a retiree living in Boca are probably going to have different priorities. I was an Art History major who likes to cook, so there is no surprise where I might be found... besides when was the last time you saw a really hot girl swinging a pair of clubs? Then try visiting the Whitney or MoMA on a Friday afternoon.

i'm coming late to this conversation and i didn't read the article, but i do have to say that i can do just about anything with anyone and not feel like it has to be sexual. this caused me some problems when i was younger because often times the people i spent time with thought i was attracted to them, when i wasn't. when i have dessert in a restaurant, i insist that whoever i'm eating have at least a little bit of my dessert. i do this with whoever i'm eating with, regardless of who they are. so it doesn't seem strange to me when a waiter brings me two forks with my cake, if anything, it just saves me from having to ask him for an extra fork.

Pretty funny article. I get along fine with gay men, I've worked with a number of them and joke around with them about their being gay and everything, an example I like to use is on one occassion I talked politics with a man in full drag. But I still think I'm slightly homophobic still. I'm not comfortable at all with them until they are openly gay, not trying to hide it, then once everything is out in the open everything is fine. I definetly leave a seat between me and my guy friends if possible when seeing a movie, its never even an option, there must be a seat between us if possible, weird I guess but who cares? That article reminded me of the Seinfeld episode with George and Jerry being mistaken for lovers by Jerrys girlfriend: "Were not gay, not that theres anything wrong with that." Some people can be too comfortable with their sexuality I think. I was crashing at a friends place, my guy friend, his girl and two of her girl friends in an efficiency apt. The girls decide to sleep together and tell me I should share the futon with my guy friend instead of the chair I was sleeping in. Neither of us is gay, but I'm not gonna risk waking up spooning my friend. I stuck with the chair. All in all, pretty funny article if taken in jest. Eric
