I'm so hetoerosexual I don't have gaydar.

Just so you don't forget, I'm a heterosexual which means I'm not gay.

Remember, I'm heterosexual. If I had gaydar it could inference that I might be gay, which I'm not.

hmmm... my gaydar is pretty much dead on most of the time (for guys at least)... I really don't know what it is though... maybe it's my incredible sense of smell... I can detect the delicate nuances of vaseline use, as in the varying sensible sites of application and its accompanying effective amount, from about 10 feet away... if the smell's coming from an unsual place on their body, their either gay, or just reeeaaaly curious....

I cant tell if a woman is gay usually. But I can pretty much spot a gay man anywhere.

Oh and to actually answer the question as to what sets off my gaydar. Its like in their moves. I'm not talking about "gay mannerisms" but theres subtle hints that I can pick up on.

a good way to tune up your gaydar is to live with gay roommates. watch them. interact with them. walk in their shoes- even if their Ferragamos are 3 sizes smaller...
i think it should be difficult to operate your gaydar based on clothing alone. it's kinda sad if there are people who think you are gay if you dress more fitted (not even skin-tight) clothing than the norm.

but if anyone ever thought i was gay based on my clothing, i'd see that as a compliment.

I think you should turn this into a telenovela like desperate housegays :P

q: what sets off your gaydar?
a: when the guy comes across the hall of the apartment building with a playgirl to ask my boyfriend if the model was him. Or the constant bringing my boyfriend brownies and cookies...

boyfriend was mortified, I thought it was hysterical...DAMN that man was hot....

Long stares, and flirting! I have 2 gay friends, who fit into the mould of a stereoptypical gay male, ie they both work within fashion, hang around with plenty of beautiful female friends, can be OTT at times. I think my gaydar works fine, its picking up vibes from the opposite sex that I find most men lack. Everyone knows the saying, Men are from Mars, women are from Venus

yeah...boyfriend gets all the hot guys. makes me jealous. Seriously though, the gay guys check him out CONSTANTLY.

And before anyone says anything, boyfriend is 100% hetero, doesn't put out any sort of gay vibe, does NOT dress nice or anything - but they sure like him!

Me too! I'm pretty good with the male gaydar (no specifics... just can tell) but with women... wow it takes a lot for me, unless they are (how can I say this nicely....) not feminine at all . I am just now finding out about some of the women I work with after 9 mos at this job.

I'm a bit of a fag hag, and I have found that some gay guys are drawn to guys that aren't gay. They have some sort of I must conquer complex.... It's unnerving to say the least, and my BF gets checked out by boys too, he's just too oblivious to notice, so I dont tell him. I think he'd die...

when a guy is really nice, most straight guys are not to a married chick!
post #44 of 147
for women... baggy men's clothing and buzz cut
for men... "gay" voice and the way they walk

basically... my gaydar only turns on when it's really obvious, otherwise i can't tell
post #45 of 147
my sister tested me if i was gay a few weeks back...

she told me to look at my nails

and so i did.

I passed it.

i turned them around with the palm of my hand facing me, clinching my fists...

If you're gay you look at your nails by putting your hands out in front of you-streching them outward...

i dunno its dumb :P

I think I've got pretty decent gaydar(tm). I usually base my assumptions on:

1. body language
2. voice and speech cadence
3. type of dress
4. who this person hangs out with--- mostly groups girls all the time, or guys all the time?

Then of course as Chris mentioned some people are just completely un-guessable. I'm 99% sure one of my friends is gay but it's taken me eight years to determine this. I'm guessing based on the fact that he has NEVER said anything to me about any girl, EVER, as well as his involvement with local gay groups. And I just get that feeling from him

Some people are tough to read!

Half the guys I go to school with are gay, and almost all of the musical theater majors guys are. Singers, ugh Anyway, it's different for everyone. Sometimes it's incredibly obvious when they flirt, laugh and check you out or rub your shoulder a little longer than a straight guy would when they say hello. Sometimes you would never know they were gay because they're just as masculine as the next guy. Some guys have the manner of a gay guy, but aren't. I usually don't judge off first impressions anymore because I've been wrong so many times.

I don't know, but every time I meet someone who is gay they are always smiling like crazy- hmm?? The first thing that tips me off though is the voice. I swear I though my neighbor was gay, but it turns out he has a kid and is married- so I guess mine is a bit broken too or he's just confused.

Gaydar is a tricky thing. It certainly takes time to hone the skills. My father turned out to be gay, and I was a music major in college. It always seemed to me that there was a higher percentage of homosexuals in the music dept at most universities. So I guess that those two experiences have finely tuned my gaydar. In my experience the gay men that are not "out" yet are usually easy to spot. They are usually younger, and not totally sure of themselves. They will talk about girls all the time, overcompensating for what they think "normal" behavior might be. But it is usually forced and somewhat awkward.

For guys i think my gaydar is pretty good....it's not so much their mannerisms or their ways of dressing but just a "vibe" i get from them. I've known so many gay people that i guess it just becomes natural for me to sense it. I've come to realize especially with gay males that they really don't always fit into the stereotype.

As for girls, well thats a strange one for me. I have found that there are the obvious lesbians, and you can usually tell which girls aren't and which girls are, but then there are girls like me that NO ONE ever thinks is gay. I have people thinking that i am just some girls trying to get attention by saying i am gay, which is not true at all. I just don't set off people's gaydar what so ever. Even my girlfriend asks me if i am gay sometimes just cuz she knows i don't set off gaydar.

Girls are more complex too beucase it is so much more socially acceptable for girls to be close both phisically and emotionally with each other. I also think it is more common for girls to have crushes on one another and possibly experiment. My gaydar goes off for a lot of the girls i am friends with that you would think are totally heterosexual and have boyfriends.
