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.

In life you get a bit of everything, just know that at the time and circumstance you find yourself in, fear and joy are always present. One can take over the other, however, you can change the over all effect it has depending on how you translate its effect in you. Choose what provides you with life. I am a sensible, easy going individual. I am able to communicate in a mature and sensible manner. I believe in allowing others to be who they are. I live in Oakland, CA. More pics here...

Hello, big and tall man looking for friends for some fun and good times. Love good food, good wine, travel, sports, and the bay area. Still hoping and praying to meet others especially those with strength of character, strong willed and like to control a relationship. Definately very hot and sexy and makes me weak in the knees. Like to have fun of all kinds. So......if interested, send a grope, send a greeting, send harm and compliment accepted. Lets connect and see how the chemistry works out.
So here's the deal, I am a very caring person, looking for someone between 18 and 39 for an older brother, daddy, with benefits and hopefully a lasting relationship because I am lonely. I suppose that most people that would be looking at my profile and would interest me might be considered "chasers". I have a great personality, love to care for the person I am with, and am really interested in meeting someone that is real. I prefer white, english speaking latin and pacific islander type decent. Black guys just don't do it for me, sorry. I am looking for someone medium ... Read More

I am a big hairy bear
6'5" teddy bear working on becoming healthier. Was over 400 lbs, not just over 300. Tend to be more of a homebody, but only because I don't like going out alone. Enjoy anything from fine dining and a play, to getting rough and wild while camping. Easy going, cuddly goofball of a bear. Any questions, just ask. Just a side note, if I give you a compliment...please take it as such and not a marriage proposal or anything. I don't know why guys get so upset when given a simple compliment.
hi lookin for hunters or chasers for a bit of fun who knows anyway those brave enough please message prefer younger as thy tend to taste better
