Chat with straight guys
The growing acceptance of homosexuality, however, has allayed some of these fears. Gay men – particularly those in conservative and rural environments – remain wary about trying to befriend straight men, fearing prejudice-fueled rejection.At the same time, many straight men still doubt that they’ll be able to relate to gay men in any meaningful way and, for this reason, may not try to initiate a friendship.For a long time, friendships between gay men and straight men – what some now call “bromosexual” friendships – were uncommon.Homophobia was likely one reason; another was that straight men probably assumed they didn’t have much in common with gay men.We currently have a survey investigation underway that explores some of the positive outcomes of “bromosexual” friendships, including our theory that gay men and straight men can be optimal wing men for one another.Friendships between gay and straight men have always existed.The idea is that it might allow men who identify as heterosexual to indulge in their homo side, without having to label themselves as gay.
It was nearing the end of the night at this time so I was pretty secluded from everyone.In October, The New York Times even devoted an article in their Style section to “The Rise of the ‘Bromosexual’ Friendship.” This sort of normalization is good news.But social scientists still haven’t studied the dynamics of these friendships: why they develop and how they’re maintained.The prankster, who wants to remain anonymous, told The Verge how he set up a dummy female profile and then tweaked Tinder’s API (no idea but sounds clever).This meant that every time two men swiped right for the dummy profile, they were matched with each other instead. That’s two horny straight guys unwittingly flirting with each other. The devious programmer then took snapshots of the resulting NSFW conversations – here’s some that don’t involve popsicles or chocolate-dipped churros references (you really don’t want to know). The mystery programmer explained that he stopped after a few matches.
