Superb Opinion

  • In theory yes, but because gay or bi men cannot be friends with straight men, in practice? No.

    I've been friends with gay/bi guys before, always because we both liked a given video game and got along well enough, but they always try to hit on me after a while, so I just end up blocking them, and after that happening so many times, I now just avoid befriending gay/bi men entirely, and I'm now hesitant to add guys at all to my friends list while gaming and tend to only add women.

    I also get hit on by most women I befriend, which has both benefits and annoyances.

    Having a platonic friendship is very easy for me, because I'm straight, VERY picky with looks and mental matches, and have high standards for relationships by today's standards. But it seems I quickly attract the opposite mentality, the "easy" people.

    I'm a very good friend by today's standards (a normal friend by 1990s standards), and people today mistake that for romantic interest, because they expect regular friends to treat eachother like crap instead of helping them with their problems, getting them presents on occasion, calling them out on their bullshit, or defending them from other's bullshit (ie real friends treat you like family).

    Sometimes I see others do these things for people, but its always out of nepotism or favoratism or to get in their pants, rather than just how we are expected to treat those we intentionally interact with often.

    Eventually I just got sick of these types of people and ditched my "friends".

    I'd like to have at least one genuine friend, but apparantly finding myself a woman to marry is the only way to get that these days. 2 birds one stone I guess, but it does suck to have to spend the time waiting for a wife with no one to hang out with.

Most Helpful Guy

  • No we can not be friends with gay or bi men because we know those men are trying to fuck us like we try to fuck girls. Same reason guys can't be friends with girls... If we like you enough to talk to you and chill with you we want to fuck you. If we didn't we wouldn't be trying to chill with you. We would be trying to chill with a women we are trying to fuck.
