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

The online dating thing has worked for me a little with the ladies. But I'd like to have some guy friends to hang out with (and not date). I'm looking mostly to join some sports leagues or do things like that, but most leagues you need a team to join and doesn't seem to be for individuals looking for a team.

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

Intramural sports leagues? They always take singles, at least here. They're pretty laid back.

Also try talking to guys in saunas.

Depending what sports you play, you can probably find some sort of pickup games. Or put a want ad in the paper looking for a team to join. Like Shazam said, most rec leagues take single players.

Where do you live and how old are you?

You can join an intramural sports league. Here in NYC we have zogsports and they have a bunch of choices of sports you can play. Every team plays at the same time for most sports and right after everyone heads to the bar for a happy hour. It's a great way to meet people.

The reason I ask your age is because most of the people that populate this particular intramural league are all mid to late 20's.

Bathhouse? Or have those fallen out of favor?

Not at all. Steamworks is great for that kind of thing.

Just post an ad on a classified site (e.g., Craigslist) and act like you're already in a league but want to branch out. Say something like, "Up to now I've been batting for the other team, but I'm eager to try something new." Include your home address so people can send you letters.

Do you belong to a gym, I play basketball every saturday from 12-3 and usually after we get some beers. It's mostly like guys trying to get out of the house away from kids, girlfriends, shoot the shit exchange Linkedin links and words with friends usernames. Thats about it.
