Gay Bears are classically characterized by physical traits they share with their ursine counterparts, generally being large, hairy and self-assured. Rejecting the hairless gym rat, youth-obsessed, lithe model of what constitutes an attractive gay man in the mind of some - bears celebrate the natural male form, in all it's hairy, bearded and often-rotund glory. The ever-growing popularity of the bear look and lifestyle has lead to several sub-categories of the gay bear niche. Today there are many gay bear sub-identities, with Asian "Panda Bears," senior "Silver Bears" or "Polar Bears" representing the older, grayer set, "Leather bears," "Biker Bears," "Muscle Bears" and even "Gay Cubs" or "Otters" representing the twenty-something crowd and the skinnier slightly less hirsute members of the community.

As there's a wide range of types within the larger gay bear community, the definition of what a bear is has almost as many answers as there are bears themselves, but generally bears are hyper-masculine, and tend to believe in celebrating their masculinity, rather than depilating their way to some unobtainable, corporate-hijacked, androgynous ideal. With the fragmentation of the Gay Bear dating community it's hard to pin down exactly what constitutes a bear these days, but for many it's simply a case of knowing it when you it, as much a state of mind as a collection of specific physical traits.

Self employed occasional consultant who spends lots more time traveling, reading, and listening to music than I do working. I've traveled a lot of the world and every time I go somewhere new I realize just how much more I've yet to see. I'm social, perhaps a bit shy when we first meet, but straight forward and engaging. Not being fond of bars, clubs, and drinking, I don't suffer small talk, with a chat about current events, travel or movies a little easier to come by. More into Mozart than Metallica, museums over bars, and travel over most other interests. Being ... Read More

Hi Boys. I seek an intelligent, confident (and sexy of course) younger guy for some ongoing fun. Sex is great, but I want something that involves friendship and intimacy too. I'm plenty successful career-wise, and my life is busy, but not full. My friends, family, travel, and adventures are great and I'd love somebody to share it with. So, I'll admit that I'm a bit on the romantic side, but I'm also not one of these people that gets in too deep, too quick. I'm sane, looking for sane. If you want to chat, send me a message. If you're local, I'd probably be up to ... Read More

Love laughing and making pepole laugh. Here for friends,FWB, or just fun.
I'm ISFJ - essentially that means I likely won't message you first, that I'm a nice person who will reply if you message me first, and that, if you disappear mid-conversation, or after starting a friendship, I'll think you are just a big dick.
