Bears

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.

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

Shy guy looking for a young guy for friendship, fun and a possible relationship with. I work hard, I am healthy, and I am in the closet. I look and act straight. I like young guys, especially smooth types, but all are good. I like red heads and Asians, never been a fan of real fem acting guys. I am trained in giving massages and I am told I am very good at giving them, so if you would like one, just ask. I am not interested in being anyone's sugar daddy. Be honest and we can be friends.

Not looking for anything in particular, just looking around. Friends are nice but not likely to happen on this site. So maybe hooking up could be a way of building a Friendship. It would be nice to meet someone that we could be FWB on a regular basis. Enjoy everyone happy hunting.
