  •  I went to law school in SF (8+ / 0-)

    Sometimes I would go to the straight clubs with various friends, sometimes I would go to the gay clubs with friends.

    I can not think of one single occasion when I was approached by a guy who was then told by my friends that I was straight and not interested in any romantic relationships being treated as unwelcome or feeling like an outsider. I was totally accepted for who I was bc it was obvious that I just was there to support my friends and wasn't into labels. And I had some of the best times talking travel, books, sports - at gay bars.

    Oh, and we ALL went to the Castro for Halloween!

    •  I love the relationships I have (5+ / 0-)

      with my straight friends. Straight women in particular are so easy to get on with. There is no expectations or hidden sexual agendas going on. It creates an interesting dynamic that two people of opposite genders don't often experience. We kind of get each other.

      •  Ok, now you hit on one of my secrets: (5+ / 0-)

        I met far more women hanging out with my gay friends than the opposite. Women will seldom approach a group of straight guys and one woman alone NEVER will.

        But, when hanging out with my gay friends, not only did they know a lot of women, but women were far more likely to approach us when I was in a group predominantly gay. And, usually just b/c I was cool enough to not be intimidated or "shamed" to be with gay guys, they were usually satisfied right away that I wasn't a creep.

        So, though my motives were totally selfless, I didn't say that there weren't some added benefits.
