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.

Healthy, fit polar bear near Seattle, Washington, interested in meeting for friendship or dating with trim, bright, independent young men who appreciate a few years of experience. Not interested in hookups until the third date. I am NOT your sugar daddy. Here for conversations with men in the Americas, Oceania and Europe. I also usually don't respond to guys who don't have a posted picture. Thanks. I tend to be a home-body, but an energetic friend can easily get me out of the house for new and exciting adventures. That's a big plus. I find myself strangely attracted ... Read More

Don't really have a type. Hit me up and we'll take it from there.
I know what this site & others like it are all about but I am open to something more than just sex. I'm not allergic to dating; just bullshit, ignorance & douche bags. I'm also human and have needs so I'm not opposed to a regular fuck bud either. The connection is what matters most. Ultimately I would like a relationship. Basically looking for a good man to explore and share life with. A partner in crime. A guy who softens my heart and makes my dick hard. Someone I can have loads of fun with in and out of bed. Someone who enjoys spending time with me ... Read More

Older guy interested in younger guys. I love to have fun. I believe in working hard and playing hard, I love to ski, hike, adrenaline rushes, and goofin' around. The mountains are my church experiencing them is my god. Let's see if we have any chemistry and if we do - let's follow it.
Looking for Mr. Right, but longing for some quality cuddling and play. Not open to a "relationship" with anyone under 35, but not opposed to playing either. If I need to check ID, you are too young for me. Likewise, if you are old enough to remember who Mrs. Beazley is, we probably won't match unless you function at a 40-year-old level (physically). Please don't message me if you are thousands of miles away, it isn't going anywhere. Also, I am not impressed with muscles nor guys who are so hairy it looks like they are wearing a sweater. I prefer to be the big hairy ... Read More

Looking for friends, cuddle buds and dates, definitely prefer to find one good guy over a bunch of randomness, but this is not always the case, so open. Passionate laid back good guy here with awesome values and great sense of humor and play well with others. - So let's chat and figure this out, tick tock.... PS: do not expect a response from me if you reach out with a faceless pic. - Would you talk to to someone if they walked up to you on the street with a bag on their face, probably not.

Down to earth guy looking for encounters that develop into friendships, friends with benefits and who knows what else. If you have no picture (or a picture of you car etc) or a blank profile, you'll get no response from me.

43, 6'6", 290 Big ol' southern boy here. Lived most of my life in Tennessee. Grew up on a farm and now I'm living in this concrete jungle. I love the arts - theatre, museums, live performance. I always find beauty there and it's to what I keep returning when I need a renewed sense of this crazy world. I can also have an equally wonderful experience at the ballpark watching the game. Baseball's just another form of theatre to me and I love it. I enjoy movies a lot. Mostly non-mainstream cinema and a good documentary always seems to make it to the top of my ... Read More
