Straight Women, Gay Men Friendships



Sometime last year, one of my longtime blogging friends, Linda, asked me something in one of her comments that I’ve been meaning to post about, but have never gotten around to doing.

She asked (something to the effect), “Why is it that a lot straight women find it so easy to be open and free with gay men?"

And she’s not the first woman to ask me that question, because throughout my life other women have mentioned the same thing.

Now I can only answer that from a gay mans’ perspective by saying that I think one of the main reasons is simply because we’re gay, and there is a certain freedom in being more open when there is the absence of anything sexual.

I also think most gay men connect on a deep emotional level with women, therefore can relate to how a woman feels, so it makes it easy for us to communicate with one another.

As a gay man, I see and appreciate the beauty of women, both physically and intellectually. And that comes from place of being neutral. A place of utmost respect.

Most of my closest friends are women (both straight and gay). And ironically, straight men not gay men, because gay men will often experience the same sexual tension with other gay men that straight men and straight women sometimes do.

I’ve often heard many women say, “I enjoy having gay men friends because it’s like having a girl friend in a boy friend.”

So, maybe that’s it. That's the reason.

Straight women and gay men friendships are like a sister-brotherhood in one.

It's a bond like no other.

All I know is that I adore women.

And am so grateful for the friendships I have with them.


Thank you, ladies!




Have a faaaaaabulous weekend everyone!

  1. You're are right about the sexuality. My gay male friends are not after my ass (well, when I was younger). So while they may have noticed I was a stunner, a fox, there was no hard to hide sniffing for that telltale pheromone. And, depending on the gay man involved (is everyone nice?), there is a sympatia there.
    But all that being said, gay or straight, people are people, so being one or the other might not make you a pleasure to spend time with. Oy. Have I got stories (said with a Yiddish accent!) oy. vey iss mere.

  2. As a straight, happily married man with a newborn, I have no problems with alternative lifestyles. Heck, *before* I was married I just didn't care. It's all about being comfortable with who you are. People are people, and you have to judge each person on an individual basis. That's how we get along. Working of people and being friends with people of every persuasion really opens your eyes to how unique we all really are. It's all good.

    As for women, even us married guys get stumped every once in a while ;-) Heh...

  3. Awwww...

    Funny about this post, Ron... I often think of this and I REALLLLLY miss my guy friends in San Diego!! about 85-90% of my 'guy' friends in San Diego are gay... It's exactly what you said on your blog - PLUS-- we women know that we don't have to have a potentially 'intimate' relationship- just one based on pure friendship - like with our girl friends-- and I felt that my gay male friends could relate better to me than my straight guy friends.
    I really wish that I had more gay friends here-- it's one of the things I miss most about living in San Diego... Also, I lived right next to the gay community in San Diego - Hillcrest- so it was VERY easy for me to access-- I went to one club - called the Brass Rail - on Latin nights every weekend b/c my friend- Andy and I both loved Latin men... hehehe!
    Thanks for this post.. It brings back some nice memories of my friends in SD!
    Have a marvy weekend!
    Hugs,

  4. Yes. Yes and yes.

    And if I might add--the absence of competition. Even if they might not want to admit it....that's a piece of it.

    Actually, I do better with males because of the absence of emotional 'stuff'. LOL Go figure. Works for me.
    I prefer to do facts over feelings any given day of the week.

  5. Thank YOU!!

    I am a lover of gay men, as you know first hand!
    The comfort level for me has everything to do that gay men and straight women are not in competition for anything at anytime. We are equals in so many different ways and we aren't after the same thing so our souls can connect at the rawest level possible.

    It's pretty damned amazing

  6. A woman can go shopping with a gay man and have a good time, straight men just moan all the time if one insists they go shopping! LOL

  7. well said!

    Here's my 2-cents, uninvited, I realize.

    As a gay female, I find that I'm more comfortable hanging out with gay men than straight men (unless I know them well). There's just an uncomfortable vibe sometimes with straight men that makes me a little nervous.

    And I'd prefer just not to have to deal with it. You know? But then, this makes me curious, do you ever get that feeling from straight women?

    Thank you for sharing that. I could tell from the moment I met you, you felt that way.

    My brother says the same thing. He has no problem because he knows what he is and never feels uncomfortable about being around people of various lifestyles.

    "Working of people and being friends with people of every persuasion really opens your eyes to how unique we all really are. It's all good."

    "we women know that we don't have to have a potentially 'intimate' relationship- just one based on pure friendship - like with our girl friends--"

    Yes...I SO agree!

    "I really wish that I had more gay friends here-- it's one of the things I miss most about living in San Diego..."

    I'm surprised living in France you wouldn't. I guess I'm thinking that because Europe seems to be more open and free when it comes to alternative lifestyles, you'd have many more places to connect.

    "I went to one club - called the Brass Rail - on Latin nights every weekend b/c my friend- Andy and I both loved Latin men... hehehe!"

    Me too! (and also, Italian) - HA!

    As always, I so enjoy sharing with you through our comments, my friend!

  15. Just stumbled on your blog, going to look around after this comment but I had to stop and put in my two-cents worth (I am famous for that you will see).

    I have a few male gay friends that I absolutely adore. I would much rather spend time with them than some of the straight guys I know (I am married yes). I think it has a lot to do with empathy and we women love empathy and gay men are not afraid to show it.

    And now I will go 'nose' around...Have a great day!

    Your 2-cents is ALWAYS invited and welcomed!

    "As a gay female, I find that I'm more comfortable hanging out with gay men than straight men (unless I know them well)."

    Yes, I've heard several of my gay women friends share the same feeling.

    "this makes me curious, do you ever get that feeling from straight women?"

    No, I haven't. The straight women that I meet are very tentative about respecting boundries.

    Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing on this post, my friend!

    Welcome! Thank you for stopping by and sharing your two-cents worth. It's so nice to meet you!

    "I think it has a lot to do with empathy and we women love empathy and gay men are not afraid to show it."

    Yup...it goes back to what I shared in saying that I believe we "connect" on a very deep level of understanding how we feel, and yes, not being afraid to express it.

    Thanks again for stopping by. Please feel free to drop by anytime.

  18. I love that you posted this. I have always said that every straight woman needs a great gay boyfriend. I agree with a lot of what people have said in their comments about lack of competition, more openess of emotions, shopping, etc., but the one I don't agree with is the one about intimacy. I think women and men, and much more so women and gay men can have a VERY intimate relationship (just not sexual intimacy) in that you have all that sexual tension out of the way and you can connect on a much deeper intimate level than you can with straight men or women. It's almost like you've stripped away all the barriers and can just be "yourself" without worrying about all those boundaries you have to put up with straight men and other women and you're not worried about backstabbing or how you look, etc. You can just be YOU. Does that make sense?

  19. I've always been able to be friendly with men and women, whether they were single, married, straight, gay, with children or without. To me, I just love people in general. But my hubby has said that he doesn't really think straight men and women can be close friends because the chance of something personal happening is higher. I don't really agree atleast not in all circumstances anyway. But he is a Scorpio afterall, and does have some jealousy issues. LOL But what you said about gay men being able to connect on a deeper emotional level is probably key for many friendships like that. You certainly are very kind, complimentary, and have a great sense of humor so I can see why you have many friendships with women.
    I know that I am glad to have gotten to know you thru our blogs.

  20. Hellooooooooo Peg~

    "Does that make sense?"

    Yes, absolutely!

    And I agree with what you shared about intimacy too because straight women and gay men DO share intimate relations. Deeper than anything sexual. I also believe that straight men and straight women can share that same type of intimacy. Some couples seem to have such a STRONG friendship bond (as with you and hubby)as well as a sexual relationship.

    I think you said exactly what I am saying with this post....

    "It's almost like you've stripped away all the barriers and can just be "yourself" without worrying about all those boundaries you have to put up."

    Thank you, Peg. For your comment and for your friendship!

    Oh, I know you do. I could tell that from the second I met you. That's why I think we connected so quickly - you're so incredible open!

    " my hubby has said that he doesn't really think straight men and women can be close friends because the chance of something personal happening is higher."

    I've heard other men share the same thing, but I have to agree with you...

    "at least not in all circumstances anyway."

    They are exceptions.

  22. Well I am not sure it is because you are gay or just a great guy but I love having you as my new friend. I do have a wonderful close friend who is gay named Brian and I do find it so easy to be intimate and real with him about everything. I alos have a lot of gay men in my practice and I have to say I always enjoy their company. So who knows why and who needs to question it...I am just grateful to find wonderful people no matter what their sexual orientation!

  23. Ron, you forgot tomention that gay men are just plain fun! They're not afraid to act silly...at least the ones I know. And yes, it is the sensitivity thing that connects us. And they usually have good fashion sense and are able to telly your butt looks big in that dress without hurting your feelings! And you can trust their suggestions on fashion and know there are no ulterior motives( like they really want you you to look like crap!) You rock, Ron!

  24. hmmm, i don't know any gay men, with the exception of you, so i have no experience or a clue.

  26. Gay, Straight, Male, Female, everyone is the same but so much different, Coming from a straight mans point of view I like what Akelamalu said...

    "A woman can go shopping with a gay man and have a good time, straight men just moan all the time if one insists they go shopping!"

    Now on the same token if a straight man goes shopping with a gay man is that like shopping with a woman and will we moan all the time, and if a tree falls in the forrest...sorry steering off subject here :)

    Seriously I know there is a big difference when it somes to sexual preference but in my opinion in makes no difference when it comes to friendship.

    Now with that said Ron if you and Cindy want to go shopping together it's OK with me, I just may tag along and whine every once in a while so yall can laugh at me.

  36. Even when you know there's no chance of a relationship happening with someone you are technically sexually compatible with, their perception of you as attractive or not is always relevant. Eg yeah he's married and my husband's best friend and he's not my type at all anyway, but he's heterosexual and I'm a woman and if he doesn't find me attractive can I be sure it's not because I'm just not attractive? Ain't none of that nonsense when one of you is gay and the other one isn't, and of course it's always awesome to have someone that can completely appreciate your perspective on your romantic partners - both actual and perspective - without having any concern about conflict of interest.

    Total best of both worlds.

  38. I worked with and became good friends with a lesbian back in California. I remember standing on a corner with her one day people watching when I looked over and said, "Hey, I just realized we're both checking out the girl over there!"

    We both roared with laughter as she replied, "Yep, she's hot."

    We had a great relationship. No sexual tension between us to get in the way.

    Funny though, I've had several relationships with women that were merely friendly ones. I guess I'm one of the rare men who can actually have a woman as a friend without feeling the need to make it intimate.

  40. I loved reading this post. I have experienced something similar with two gay friend men. Such a lovely bond! So deep of an understanding! Such a funny fight over a guy once... we both found the lad cute and wanted to flirt and "bring home the battle"!

    On another note, thank you ever so much for your encouraging comment dearest Ron! It means so so so much to me.. especially now!!! I, by no means, intend or ever intended to promote anorexia. I just posted as my life was. As it - unfortunately - looked. I am trying and actually succeeding in getting better... slowly. All love and encouragement is warmly welcomed. And you do give that to me. Lots and lots!

    A big sincere hug to you Ron! I have so much enjoyed getting to know you during these past few months. You seem like a guy I'd love to have as "a real life friend"! Gay friend, and proud of it;)

  41. RON! I loved reading this. I learned something that I don't think I would have had the courage to ask about. Working in the fashion industry- there are a LOT of gay men and straight women- we DO work and play well together, don't we?! I wish I had more gay men friends, I just couldn't really articulate why- other than that they would be fun to shop with.... not that H isn't fun- he just doesn't like to look at women's shoes!

    "Working in the fashion industry- there are a LOT of gay men and straight women- we DO work and play well together, don't we?!"

    Yes, we do! And being someone who has been in the beauty industry for the past 26 years, most of the people I work with are women, so I totally relate to what you shared. I also work with some really awesome men (straigh and gay) who we work and play together famously too!

    "not that H isn't fun- he just doesn't like to look at women's shoes!"

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA....funny you mentioned shoes, because whenever the ladies I work with are picking out a new pair of shoes in the store I work at, they will always ask my opinion.

  44. I like your view of this, Ron. I do think that because the sexual aspect of the relationship isn't there but a gay man is still a man, women tend to find the friendship very rewarding.

    That you wrote about this is timely, for me, because I was reading an article about the same thing that made a "gay male friend" sound like the latest must have fashion accessory. I took umbrage to to it. You have a friend - gay, straight, bi - because you LIKE that person. Not because that person is helpful in picking out blouses!

  46. You know, I might be missing something, because I don't check into the sexual preferences of people. Really, in person I might because I know the person, but not on the blogs. For that matter, I sometimes wonder if people are really who and what they say they are on the internet. Someone with a male moniker might be female and vice versa, and they may or may not be gay/lesbian.
    Bottom line, I don't care. I don't start every paragraph with "I am hetero" or "I am gay"
    Anyway, I think most folks think sex and sex acts when talking about straight or gay or lesbian. Not everyone has sex and no one has sex with everyone they know!
    As a married man in his 60's, I find many women stay away (on the blogs) because I'm married. Some might stereotype as well because I am a Veteran.
    I have learned not to judge and i work hard at it.
    There is no reason that this is my first comment on your blog, after all, I have seen you at Mel's for more than a year and we've never communicated. Soanyway, just sayin'

    Peace.

  47. I think you are SPOT on correct in your assessment. I know I feel MUCH more comfortable and I am much more OPEN with my gay male friends, because there is absolutely NO possibility of any sexual tension!

    Welcome! Hey...it's so great to see you. Yes, I see you over at Mel's and often find myself REALLY enjoying your comments, so thank you for stopping by.

    "I don't check into the sexual preferences of people. Really, in person I might because I know the person, but not on the blogs."

    Me neither, and quite frankly I don't care what someone’s’ sexual preferences is (in person or on blogs). However, there IS a uniqueness in the way many straight women and many gay men relate to one anothe. And that's really the point of this post....to share that uniqueness.

    Again, I thank you for stopping by and sharing on the post, Spadoman!

    How cool to finally meet you!

    Have a great evening!

  50. Hi Ronnie,

    That is a subject worthy of long discussions over a glass of vino :)
    I know that if we lived in the Philly area, we would have been often talking or visiting each other. Don't forget bringing a buddy :) because I can't always leave my better half at home!

    I say that the woman has a friend that is both very man and very close to his feelings, and her gay friend a woman to share his feelings with.

    Great deal :)

    Yes, my dear...if we both lived in the Philly area OR France area, we would definitely be talking and visiting one another.

    *and Didier would be taking pictures of us!

    HA!

    "I say that the woman has a friend that is both very man and very close to his feelings, and her gay friend a woman to share his feelings with."

  52. I can't believe how many posts of yours that I've missed. This whole blog challenge has been the ruin of my blogging.
    I think you are right that a lot of gay men are just more sensitive to what is going on emotionally. And, let's face it. We women dig that. Thanks for being around.
