I belong to a super gay gym in Hell's Kitchen, nyc's epicentre of gayness, so I'm not surprised by any of these truisms, but rather amused.
  1. Make 20-30 minutes of extended eye contact
    Aka cruising, or a prolonged blinking contest
  2. Convene on machines and gossip
    9180603b 3aed 4cc9 8f70 ea2cf7caf67c
    Working out doesn't even factor into the equation
  3. Parade around the gym in a modified sports bra and panties
    4a6f8007 eb0e 4fc9 8f4a 8cf0412d284b
    Why dress up to work out? I don't get it.
  4. Engage in runway walking on machines instead of actual walking
    74eb77be 8a45 457a bb8b aef9649afaa4
  5. Get deep into grindr, tinder, scruff, etc. and arrange a dalliance for later
  6. Sit in the steam room and hope for an HJ
  7. Compare fire island houses
    "Oh, yours is FAR from the ferry- mine is like, right there." - actual conversation
  8. Take bathroom selfies
    The bathroom smells like a diarrhea festival, btw, so I don't quite understand why people want to spend time in there
