I Have Gaydar

I can guess your prefrences at 20 paces!!! 461 People

    So?

    Yes, I have gaydar.  It's very accurate.  So what?  Like all the other odd extra things I notice about people, I keep my gaydar's readings to myself.  I never know for sure if a person is in or out of the closet; no way in hell am I gonna out them!  No, I just heed what I...

    My instincts are usually correct,

    but wow, I have definitely been very surprised in certain instances! I try to steer clear of stereotypes and generalizations; they feed the hate. Really I believe that we all fall at a certain point on a spectrum, sort of like the bell curve. Very few are 100% gay or 100...

    I Think Soooo...

    I know I know, it's very sterotypical, but it's life. With my Dad being gay, I have met many gay men. Some not so stereotypical, and some, WOW. It's interesting.

    Just Call Me "Grace"!

    I'm not 100% good at this, maybe around 70%, but after a short while I can pick up on this. AND... like the female character on the show "Will & Grace", I tend to fall for the guys who are gay... which I don't realize it, until I have my hopes up and they have...

    Mostly

     I tend to think that I have a pretty good gaydar. I only really mess up if I'm attracted to the person. If I'm attracted to the person I tend to think they're gay although it's more wishful thinking, lol. Other than that my gaydar tends to be pretty on the spot. I think it...

    I have to be the only gay person without a 2014

    Gaydar. Mine is still stuck on the 2002 version. I can't pick up hot guys as quickly as everyone else with an outdated Gaydar!

    I Think It's Pretty Accurate

    Of course you can't just go up and ask people, and if you did it wouldn't prove anything. I can't say too much here without being un-PC, but it's all about body language, and speech, and also dress to a degree. When I put it all together I think it's about 60% accurate.

    But I Don't Listen To It

    My gaydar works just fine but I tend to ignore it. I have now dated 2 guys who were still in the closet. I really don't do it consciously but I think I knew they were gay and just didn't care. I think it shows that I was really looking for friendship and not a long term...

    Oddly Enough

    Yeah, I have it too. I'm a straight guy and my gaydar only works on women. Sure I can spot the obvious guys but I'm never as certain as with women. I think its because my Mom is a lesbian so I've been exposed to it from an early age. I'd say I'm about 95% or better at it. It...

    yeah, you could say i have a gaydar.

    the trick to guessing someones sexuality or romantic orientation is by how they publicly express interest in certain genders. point is, no, you guys should not be making assumptions based on intuitions or stereotypes. if you want to know, just ask the person and understand that...

    Not Like I Care

    I generally don't care which way people go. But I have always had a knack for knowing. It isn't just stereotypes either. I've known people that had none of the stereotypical behaviors, but I knew. I know when people are bi - or even just a little bi. It has helped me a great deal...
