A recent forum thread posed the question to gay men if they preferred to be the hunter or hunted. The answer as to why so many gay men are single was evident by the majority of responses. Surprisingly a whopping 87% of gay men admitted to preferring to be the hunted. Some cited reasons as being too shy or that if someone is hunting them then they must be really into them. In the process of answering this question it revealed why so many gay men are single. They’re all waiting for a hunter to swoop in and come after them, but the problem is there are not a lot of admitted hunters out there, so most of these gay men will remain single unless they pull themselves up by their bootstraps and just go for it and becoming a hunter.
