You guys have really got to stop ready PUA websites. They are the 2013 equivalent of high school nerds advising one another on the best way to get chicks - that usually ends up poorly.

This is true for both gay and straight, men and women. As a counterpoint, I hang out with a lot of current and ex MMA fighters, forest fire fighters, cops, and ex-Military guys. They are about as stereotypically macho as you might want. A few of them could probably be poster boys for The Marines, or for the Forest Service. In general, they feel uncomfortable in anything but tees and jeans. Maybe a leather or technical jacket or a sweatshirt if it gets cooler. When they "dress up", which happens occasionally, usually when their girlfriends or wives make them, they look like someone is trying to strangle them. I'm pretty sure that a few of them would rather be actually choked than have to put on a button up shirt and non-denim pants. But they don't project as "gay" to anyone.

fwiw, I've been hit on by lots of gay men, especially in San Diego (why San Diego?) but no woman has ever thought that I was gay. Maybe I just drip sex. Right?

But if I happened to be gay, she would've liked the idea of being my friend much more. That just seemed retarded to me.

She probably wanted to be sure that you were not going to make a move on her or otherwise complicate things, and she probably had preconceived notions of what a gay friend would be like. That's what too many reruns if Will and Grace will do to a girl.

If one person calls you a horse, call them a jerk. If another person calls you a horse, punch 'em.

If three people call you a horse - well it's time to buy a saddle.

I dated this Ethiopian girl for awhile and now I can make some really good Ethiopian food. It consistently freaks out my Ethiopian coworker when I bring in leftovers that I made.

I'm kind of on the opposite end of the contentedness spectrum right now. I don't think I've lost/gained any weight, but recently I feel like all of my clothes fit funny. Everything I own seems too safe/boring but I already blew my budget for the next few months. Those things and the fact that temps have been swinging from from 5º to 20ºC in single day has made getting dressed a total chore.

Also my hair is a fucking mess, but I don't know what to do with it.

/end rant

About the hair you mean haha? I don't think I've ever been happy with my hair. I'm super envious of guys that can just grow their hair out long and be done with it.

Regarding your second point: buying selectively is great in theory, but my problem has always been that I don't know if I'm truly happy with an article of clothing until I've had it for a few months and worn it a bunch of times. It pretty much eliminates the ability to return things (unless they straight up don't fit). Normally I just end up selling it at a loss b/c I know I won't wear it, which means that I end up being out the money and I'm left with a hole in my wardrobe.
