I have a lot of friends. We've met in sports leagues, at bars and on dating apps. Of course, when I say "sports leagues," I mean gay dodgeball and gay bowling. And when I say "bars," I'm referring to Scarlet and Sidetrack. "Dating apps"? Grindr and Scruff. I am a gay man, all my friends are gay and...I'm over it. I want straight friends--straight guy friends--but I don't know how to do it. Because gay men share many of the same experiences, they tend to compare those experiences and everything in between.

He's been making his mark as meth sidekick Jesse Pinkman on "Breaking Bad" since 2008, but this just might be Aaron Paul's biggest summer yet. Here are five things to know about this rad dude before he blows up any bigger. damoran@tribune.com | @redeyedana 1 -- He's a total romantic Step back ladies, Aaron's taken -- and way in love. He described his engagement to Vulture this way: "We were walking the streets [in Paris] alone with a bottle of Champagne in hand, and right before midnight we were sitting on a stoop in St. Germain, surrounded by lit-up Christmas trees.

What's the best part of a celebrity doing a magazine cover interview? (Hint: It's not seeing which restaurant they ate at.) No, it's reading all the ridiculous, unfiltered quotes that spew forth. Such is the case with the June issue of GQ: Cover boy and regular Joe, Channing Tatum, is at his finest. Can you spot which of the quotes below belong to Channing, and which came from one of his characters? It won't be easy.

When you get a new roommate, you enter an entirely new social compact. You must negotiate new compromises and re-invent living habits. Also, if he happens to be a center-right economist, you'll have to do a lot more reading. My new roommate Pat has a master's in economics, so we spend a lot of time evaluating economic policy decisions. "C'mon, man, targeting nominal GDP is the way to go," I'll say after we've stayed up till 2 in the morning discussing the Fed's recent actions.

Reality is starting to kick in, folks. As much as we may not like to admit it, it's looking like we're not gonna see any pro hoops soon. Not sure about the rest of you, but one of the cornerstones of my winter is cuddling up on my couch and watching whatever NBA game is on, even if it's a snoozefest like Spurs-Warriors or something. So now we're left to scramble for quality winter entertainment. I've done some research into sports that I think can be quality basketball substitutes.

Dude No. 1: "Oh man, check it out! A 'Ferris Bueller' commercial!" Dude No. 2: "That's so six days ago. " This isn't an ad for a phone. It's a conversation that probably will happen Sunday during the Super Bowl. As a sporting event, the Super Bowl isn't all that great. I can't even tell you who won two years ago. But it's the biggest TV event in our country - and a huge part of it is the ads. According to Nielsen, more people watch the game for the commercials than the actual football/Madonna lip-synching.

The setup: Fifty-six percent of Americans believe in love at first sight, according to a "60 Minutes"/Vanity Fair poll released Wednesday. YES For the sake of this argument, I'm going to pretend not to be super jaded at 25 and refrain from asking, "But is love even real?!" Coming from the perspective of someone who's never experienced it, I actually do believe it's possible to get the warm and fuzzies from "first sight," whether that means observing (aka staring longingly)

I'm filling out some Christmas cards here; I thought I'd share them with you. Just some warm wishes to some of Chicago's movers and shakers.   Dear Jerry Angelo, God, you're awful. I hope you retire in 2012 and move someplace warm. Seriously dude, injuries exposed you for the sham you are. No backup QB, none. The offensive line always breaks down and we know about the receivers. Please, retire now before they (me) run you out of town. Hint: It's already happening.

*** (out of four) Dude. What if you could skip rocks … with your mind? OK, the set-up behind “Chronicle,” whose title could pretty much be the title of any movie ever, may sound stupid: Three Seattle teenagers (Michael B. Jordan of “Friday Night Lights,” Dane DeHaan, Alex Russell) crawl into a hole in the ground and encounter a bright shiny thing that gives them the ability to move objects through telekinesis. Their excursions, which begin with minor tasks like elevating Legos and girls' skirts and escalate to sliding cars and...

This isn't your girlfriend's beauty box, bro. The popularity of trendy subscription sample boxes like BirchBox and Shoedazzle lit the light for Chicago entrepreneur Chris Klecyngier to launch BroBox , a monthly service aimed specifically at millennial bros. “The bro is not a bad person, I think he's a misunderstood person,” Klecyngier, the founder and self-described Chief Executive Bro of the Humboldt Park-based business, said. “The typical male 18- to 34-year-old has his passions in line and knows what he wants, but still needs some help getting through...

Besides being a three-time NBA champion with the Miami Heat, Chicago native Dwyane Wade is also a champion of style. Regarded as one of the best-dressed players in the league, Wade's style has garnered a lot of attention. The short pants suit he wore during the second-round playoff series with the Bulls last season is one example. So is the floral print jacket by Versace he wore during the postseason. Some loved the outfits, others hated them, but they kept people talking regardless.

Wiping materials are a delicate matter when it comes to their functional specificity: paper towels don't flush, tissues don't work for wiping things up, and toilet paper anywhere outside your own personal bathroom is pretty much useless for anything, including being toilet paper. In an effort to confront this universal problem, Sean Riley, 27, thought up Dude Wipes, flushable wipes that serve as an all-purpose solution to the dirtiness that plagues dudes (and everyone else) on a day-to-day basis.  Riley, of Lakeview, said he and...

Tickets to a Jets-Bills game: six packs of bacon. A Civil War relic handed down for generations: one pack of bacon. A tattoo in Louisville: 200 packs of bacon. Finding out people are willing to do pretty much anything for a few pounds of pork product: For Josh Sankey, it's surprising. The actor and comedian has made it from New York to Chicago bartering with a 3,000-pound stockpile of Oscar Mayer butcher thick cut bacon. It's part of a promotion for the company he auditioned for--make it from New York to...

Lil Rel may be back in town after taping the pilot for a new “In Living Color” TV series and his big club gigs around the country, but when asked where his fellow Chicagoans can see his next live local performance, he pauses. “I've been laying low, to be quite honest with you,” he tells RedEye during a phone interview. “I got a wife and my kids, three and two. So when you gone for pretty much a month, you don't realize how your kids miss you. They're little, they don't even understand I'm going to work.

Forget about rush hour. Every day on the CTA, it's crush hour - on men. For more than nine months, the website ctacrush.com has encouraged Chicagoans to submit photos of their CTA crushes. A new photo is uploaded about once a day. Sometimes they're of crushes on the buses, sometimes they're of crushes on the trains. The one thing all these crushes have in common: They are all men. Only one photo of a woman, a blond in a trench coat holding a pen and biting her finger in the back of a CTA bus, has been submitted.
