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.

Masc Successful guy looking for friends, dates, fun, FWB and the ultimate LTR. I am not opposed to meeting over long distances or bringing the right guy to me. I will be friends with anyone, but tend to lean toward skinny, avg muscular, twink, jock, military type guys that are younger, have their head on straight, and not into BS, games or drama. Sorry, I am just not really into much older guys. I really love the sub kinky type! Ideally, I would like to find my right guy but open to all. I'm a kinky dom and would like to find sub boys to play with or LTR. ... Read More
Just the Dad next door looking for something real. Some things I like... road trips, hiking/walking, dining out, BBQ, sports, concerts. Not into the bar scene, heavy drinking, smoking or drugs. Nor STD's. Not into guys who are already in relationships for more than friendship. Also live close to me. I like the idea of meeting in person one day. Two things that make a real relationship work are honesty and trustworthyness. Keep em in mind when searching for "the one".

It's Complicated
Within the area of a good guy, my goal here is to meet someone that is ddf, does not smoke and has varied interests. There are many pass times I enjoy but movies, hiking, cars, and exploring new things appeal to me and are great places to start with getting to know someone new. In going further, I would like it to be safe, mutual, ongoing, and with us both feeling good after being together. There is a time to be silly, laugh, and goof around and a time to be serious. I can handle both and then some. I’m friendly and approachable so feel free to say hello.
Hi, I am looking to develop a relationship with a great guy. I would like to be in a father/son relationship.
