I mean, why are we doing squats together if we aren’t going to enjoy a thicc slice of cake afterwards?
What other reason is there for me to do squats!!
"Let's take a bath together, I'll massage your shoulders bro."
I too am having trouble reading that another way
Just remember to be respectful of other gym users. The vast majority of whom have not gone to the gym to look for love/hookups
Nah, y'all need to stop making everything about romance when two people of the same sex show affection towards each other. Even when girls kiss each other, it's not "proof" of them being gay. And telling your friend you love him or just being generally friendly in a non-stereotypical, jockular way isn't at all necessarily romantic.
“I want your soft yet muscular arms to envelop me!”
That’s a romantic workout bro
Having a boyfriend I can call “bro...” is my dream
oh the hydromassage is broken? no prob bro, i’ll massage you
I really don't like these kinda of posts because they just perpetuate the idea that any form of platonic love between two men is inherently romantic. It's really harmful.
was gonna comment this. i tell my friends i love them all the time.
Anything but the being respectful of my time would make me feel awkward and put on the spot, if not make me think I was actually being made fun of.
If you touch me on the back, especially at the gym (and extra especially during a pandemic), you are losing a hand
yeah.. i'm still gonna insist that the subsequent dismembering is a "meet-cute." this is a gym love story, after all.
I would hug both my guy and girl friends and tell them I’d love them and I’d be touchy a lot, but it would be in a completely platonic way on both sides. Is that generally considered gay or non platonic?
Plenty of countries in the world consider kissing a natural greeting. The US is just intrinsically afraid of affection of any kind
So who wants to be my gym bro 😳👉👈
well played :D
awww thats so cute
this feels unbelievably like it was written by kirishima
It just kept getting better, this is a quality post!
There is a hot trainer at my Crunch and maybe I should think about taking these steps when I see him around next
LIGHTWEIGHT BABY! YEAH BUDDY! WOOOOOO!
Aside from the leg day thing, this sounds exactly like Reilly and jonesy

Nothing gay about telling the homies you love them
"Use physical touch to show affection" sounds like the best way to get thrown out of my local gym.
I love you bro-naimeth
I love you both
How about don't use physical touch to show affection? I feel panicky and physically repulsed by any touch.
This is actually so sweet. Encouraging guy friends to say "I love you" to one another and be open and supportive is so fucking perfect.
"Lets do some friendship anal after this bro"
To be fair, I tell my mates I love them. But defo sappho vibes from that poster
I know this is all in good fun but once I read a story on reddit about a guy finding out he is gay because he fell in love with his gym bro 🥲
Reading these comments and some guys lamenting about being seen gay, my question is why do you give a hoot what someone else thinks and cant you just explain if someone asks/comments?
This is the single most gender neutral way of flirting, and I love it
I don’t know if anyone on this sub listens to the Penumbra Podcast, but I feel like this is basically Sir Angelo (but like in a platonic way like with Sir Damian, Sir Caroline or even Talfryn). I actually read this in his voice.
Pretty sure this is a /whoosh moment because that's exactly what they're riffing on.
Listen. Everyone cruises at the gym. Just the staff got a bit frustrated apparently xD
Lies, where is the confession in the rain and slowburn in denial of the *feels*?
Seriously, male affection needs to be more normalised, romantic or not. Too many guys try to act tough and hide their affection, and it’s heartbreaking. Kiss yo homies goodnight and kiss your special homie goodnight but with tongue. Affection for everyone!
Don't forget everyone, men can't compliment each other. If they do, they're gay. Really good message
Way to misinterpret it.
