I did thank you, Jack, and I do so again. Each subsequent response since your first has been more and more useful. I completely understand the valid point you were originally trying to make, I just think initially you made it rather... shitly.


Clum, I know you can appreciate irony.

Jack has been talking at/to you in exactly the kind of manner that most guys talk to other guys. Especially in a locker room (after everyone is comfortable with each other).

This is how it's been done for centuries, man.

We beat the fuck out of each other verbally. Men taunt. Women tease. It is not so much, the way of the jungle, etc... it is just how it is, dude.

Sometimes it seems very blunt, straightforward and to the fucking point. Some women talk the same way. I've read what Jack has said in this thread and I didn't wince (like I sometimes do) evil4

If ya can't beat 'em... pay someone to do it for you.

I do appreciate that irony; how shrewd. That's why I like Jack, even when he's a dick.

I wouldn't have picked up on it though—I've never spoken to guys in the locker room...

I too go to a gym at irregular times. I however have never found it awkward or embarrassing to chat whether or not I or they have their wedding tackle out - all a question of maintaining eye contact and not staring at their pride and joy, especially if they have just been swimming and Little Richard and the twins have shrunk in size! In fact if they are shy about being exposed then they will often turn their back when taking their towel off from around their waist and pulling their boxers on.

Having said that a couple of times people have started to chat with me in the shower and with the sound of the water drowning out half their words has led to some bizarre conversations!

I wouldn't expect to have an in depth political debate but a few words about a general topic is just being friendly. If it doesn't come naturally then pre-think a comment about
the weather (we are british after all!)
your muscles/aches after a work out
the England rugby/football/golf or other sporting event - if they go to the gym then they are very likely to be interested in sport

My final two pieces of advice would be after you are both dressed introduce yourself, "I'm John, see you again" and when you get to your car make a quick note of his name, a pen description of him (big hair, tattoo, bright Nike top or whatever) and what you spoke about - supports Spurs, is Welsh, went to the Barbarians match etc) Flick through your notes just as you arrive everytime you go to the gym and next time you meet you will have his name and a basic topic of conversation available to you. (Spurs did well, Welsh didn't or whatever) Nothing will make you more popular than being interested in others and remembering basic things about them.

Probably a bad way to go in a gym in the middle of Dundee...

But yeah, thanks very much for your comment. The sports thing would be a good idea, except that I'm not really into sports. I guess I could always read up on sports but then it becomes too much like work (and more than a little creepy).

Sport is the the go-to conversation for a lot guys - it's an almost universal language through which you can safely spout off opinions on stuff that really doesn't matter at all. I've had conversations with north americans where they no know next to nothing about the sports i'm interested in and my knowledge of their sport is equally vague. All the conversations I've ever had in Italian and Spanish have been about football - I cannot speak these languages much past ordering a beer. I've even discussed football in German - my German vocabulary is limited to about 6 words I've learnt from war films.

You have two SPL clubs in your City - why not go along - you might enjoy it. Dundee are appallingly bad at the moment - such times are always good for talking to the bloke next to you. If you've never been to a football game you should at least go just to say you tried it.

Warning: The opinions above are those of an anonymous individual on the internet. They are opinions, unless they're facts. They may be ill-informed, out of touch with reality or just plain stupid. They may contain traces of irony. If reading these opinions causes you to be become outraged or you start displaying the symptoms of outrage, stop reading them immediately. If symptoms persist, consult a psychiatrist.

I do enjoy watching some sport (including football) and I do know some things about it. But I don't really keep up to date with it and I don't care much for talking about it.

The football team I support is not in the SPL so most folk don't have much to say about them. I have no interest in going to a Dundee or a United game—it's extra time and money I don't wish to spends on teams which I could not care less about.

I appreciate the suggestion but it's not for me.

How about a local running club - they usually cater for a wide range of fitness levels. Most people I know who are members of a running club enjoy a very lively social scene through it - I think it has something to do with the endorphins

Maybe this lot... http://v2.dundeeroadrunners.co.uk/

Now, that's something I might be more interested in (and the meeting place is literally about two minutes from my flat). The time commitment is a problem for me though (that's partly why I don't go to the gym at the same time every week). Food for thought.

Cheers for the link.

Funny story...

I went to the gym today and this whole thread was playing on my mind the entire time.

There was one guy who came into the gym at the same time as me. I caught his eye a couple of times but didn't say anything (besides, he had headphones on). Our paths crossed several times on the gym floor—he even sat on the rowing machine next to me for a while—and I probably could have said something to him but... I didn't. We were even back in the locker room getting changed to go home at the same time and I nearly said hi as he was putting his socks on, but I chickened out (and because that would be SO gay).

I headed back into town to run a few errands before heading home. When I came out of the pharmacy, I bump into a friend of mine and who is he with? The guy from the gym. We got introduced and kind of made awkward mention of the fact we had both just been at the gym together.

Clearly the universe wanted me to meet this guy, for whatever reason.

Thought I'd share.

..............When you locked eyes from across the room, was it for more than 6 seconds?

When you lock eyes without blinking with a person for 6 seconds or more, it signifies a strong desire for sex or murder.

Clum,

If you lock eyes a smidge over the time limit, which seems to be about six seconds,

reconnect with the dude, he's as flustered as you are.

Never be afraid of your fellow man. Be strong, and forget your worries,,

I dunno; it's hard to keep track of time when you're lost in someone's eyes.

I definitely don't want to murder the guy...

Ok, Clum, your profile says you are straight. But it seems that at a minimum you are bi-curious. I have been trying to get a handle on your real intent here and goals. Any advice to be truly helpful has to be given with your REAL intent in mind.

Pray tell, what has given you that impression?

What you do and do not choose to believe from my profile is up to you. Perhaps we have different definitions of heterosexual (don't you just hate the word "straight"?). Perhaps you've misunderstood me in this thread. Perhaps I've misunderstood you.

Rest assured that my original post was genuine and sincere and that my "REAL intent" was not hidden. If I wanted advice on cruising for guys in gyms, that's what I would have asked for. Your original response was adequate and helpful.

I'm the type of person no matter where I am to strike up a conversation with anyone. There's nothing wrong with trying to be friendly even if it is in a gym for that matter. I'm bi anyway so if a guys "junk" is staring me in the face then I'm all for it. The male body as well as the female body is very nice to look at.

I don't know maybe it's because I live in the south or something, but people at the gym I go to are all the time talking in the locker rooms and stuff. Nothing sexual or anything. Sports, local and national politics, weather, etc. And it is never uncommon for someone you don't really know to just hi and how are u today or good workout today. Just casual stuff. Happens more in the locker room or sauna. Never seen it happen at the urinals or very often in the showers, unless it is 2 guys who already know each other.

See... The guys that are all about chatting it up with guys in the locker room are all Bi-sexual.

What does that tell you?

...

It's annoying to be hit on by guys. It really is. I can understand when girls get annoyed when they are hit on by idiots that are not even close to being in their league. Same thing with gay guys hitting on straight guys. It doesn't make the straight guy a homophobe, it makes the gay/bi guys super annoying and predator-ish.

Encouraging you and telling you how good your mouth feels around my cock as I scoop up the cum dribbling from the side of your mouth so you don't miss a drop is not hitting on you... That's something else.

Silly Rachel.

Your response sounded a bit defensive to me. I simply read the entire thread and anyone with even a hint of reading comprehension skills can see that you were tossing out some vibes that were far from purely heterosexual. You might want to review your own posts and responses to other people's questions?

My comment was genuine and not meant to insult you in any way. But I can assure you that after reading the entire thread and your answers, if you were to approach me in a locker room I might think you were "hitting" on me as well. Now please understand, I would NOT be offended. And I am not saying that as an insult. I take it as a compliment if anyone finds me attractive in any way, that does not reflect on my sexual preference at all.

As for my first response being adequate and helpful... lol Well geeeeee thanks! I seem to see others posting more than once in this thread too. And whether you thought I was trying to be helpful or not with my last question, please rest assured that I was. Again, if you can't see where my question came from, please review your own posts here in this thread... like commenting on how good looking the guy was, lost in someone's eyes, and his cock would hurt you and you not wanting to murder him.... yes, in full context of the thread, one could very easily misunderstand your intent. Just saying......

I hope it is all going good though.

Damn all the labels anyway. Who needs 'em.

If I didn't have anything telling me what anything was, I'd be just fine.

Motor oil and pancake syrup only look alike on the store shelf...Same with ground oatmeal and rat poison. Everything in aerosol cans? Shit...it's a spray

I spray anything that's in a canister like that on wasps, spiders and in the general vicinity of street thug/muggers.

Fuck a bunch of labels I say.

If ya can't beat 'em... pay someone to do it for you.

funny thing is, that wasn't me - the lights were dim, and i'd left the room to go find someone who KNOWS how to please a woman (her name was Laura, btw) and asked James to hang out and take care of your needs... funny, i think you would have noticed, seeing as how he mentioned you returned the favor. :)

Going back to your original post Clum, ,if you do pick up courage to open a friendly conversation in the changing room, (with or without a hidden bi-sexual agenda) don’t follow my lead.

On Friday I started chatting to someone about the temperature of the showers only to discover he was profoundly deaf, and not wishing to embarrass him and to show that I am no disability-phobe tried to continue the conversation with sign language, whilst standing stark naked. At that point the whole changing room went quiet and all eyes were upon my attempt at hot-shower-charades.

Not having learnt my lesson, today I broke into innocent conversation with someone else about the weekend’s rugby (good win for Scotland eh) only to discover the chap was Polish and stood there saying que? (I thought that was Spanish?) in a very Manuel-esque way. Thankfully he had a friend there who translated and we managed to struggle through.

Maybe I'll keep quiet next time
