Re: Is there a non gay website for dudes to meet other dudes?

do you play ultimate frisbee or rugby? Both are sports that are welcoming to new folks and have a social culture as part of the sport. There are often ultimate leagues that are "draft" leagues, no team needed, or if it's a team league they will put together a team of misfits.

Yeah rugby's a good way to meet men. Strong men. Burly men.

OP: Touch it?

Date friend: *laughing* You took the words out of my mouth.

OP: I would like to take the balls out of it too. *winks*

Basically, I'm looking for a site similar to meetup that isn't for older folks or single middle aged moms.
Are you self employed?

No. Why?

Someone mentioned MMA and I'm looking into that. I have no karate/fighting background at all but it sounds challenging and interesting. I'm going to talk to a couple of guys that run the dojo (or whatever it's called) tomorrow. How hardcore are these MMA training places?

Let's just say you'll be entering the bukkake of martial arts.

Good choice. MMA is only gay if you look each other in the eyes.

Wait, you wanted a non gay website to meet dudes and your favorite suggestion so far is MMA? yeah naked sweaty dudes holding and grabbing each other and trying to get the other guy in a compromising position is not gay at all.

Tell you what, first sign of a boner and I'll quit.

I didn't think there was much grabbing and holding? Maybe I'm mistaking MMA with kickboxing?

I'll be honest, I've had the same thought as the OP before. I got married and both me and my wife wish we had friends we have stuff in common with, other than family members, but we have no clue how to go about it without it bordering on weird and awkward. We know other people, but have no clue how to go past the casual chitchat in normal every day life to like, actually doing stuff together. How does a dude ask another dude to go watch the latest action movie or whatever without it coming off in a very creepy way?

I really, really should have held on to my old highschool friendships a lot better than I did. This isn't nearly as easy once you are in your mid to late 20s or early 30s like me now.

Pretty much my story too.

Was married for seven years and we didn't spend much time with other people, and when I divorced, I spent the next decade dating, at the expense of ever making guy friends. So here I am at 39 without any guy friends to play pick-up basketball with or check out a movie I'd never take a date to see (like this week's re-release of Reservoir Dogs). Not a terrible problem to have as I enjoy meeting hot women, but I do feel like I'm missing out at times (stupid Bud Light commercials).

I went through a phase where I wanted my wife and I to have friends too. We wound up hanging with this couple who wanted to do nothing but get shit faced every time we got together. When we adopted our daughter that ended.
