    Kind of complimentary, yet a pain if you're both out there and looking...


    Anyone else get assumed "straight and taken", or just, "taken"?

    Yeah, everytime I go out with my friend, people think we're a couple. And she's a girl, so "straight and taken" here.

    I guess that's the price to pay when you develop such a good complicity with a good friend.

    I have to deny over and over that me and my best male friend of 20 years are a couple. People refuse to believe it. I mean we're joined at the hip, at social events we pretty much isolate everyone else and only talk to each other, we never, ever fight, obviously we're not a couple. They also refuse to believe we've never had any sexual contact, which, ew, we haven't, ever. I see him more as a brother than my own brother and would never consider even a kiss, egh. And yes we're both gay.

    i think it's pretty damn irritating when my friend is slightly homophobic and insecure. i'm trying to just let them be and people are saying shit so they don't wanna be my friend now.

    That's why I usually go to the club alone. If I go with someone, everyone always thinks we're dating and either leave us alone, or try to 3-way with us.

    LOL it's like that with my friend and I. Folks always assume that he's my boyfriend. We've been friends for almost six years and even though I may have had an attraction to him at beginning, he didn't feel same and now that we've been friends, I don't see him that way either.

    Yeah, me and my best gay friend acted like an old married couple for years. No wonder neither of us had a date through university, nor did we have need for it.

    you have to learn how to appear like you are not a couple or you'll both be total cock blocks. no one has assumed I was any of my friend's bf. i think its because i have whore written all over.

    You can always hand out cards that say "Available" and your phone number.

    Haha yeah a friend and I used to hit the clubs all the time, and wondered why we had no success (particularly him, since he was quite good looking at the time). Anyway, one night a female friend came out with us and about an hour later said "You realise that everyone thinks you're a couple, right?" She'd had all these guys asking her about whether we were together or not. I was kind of flattered, I don't think my friend was!

    Yes. When my friend's grandmother met her boyfriend she asked when her and I had broken up. I guess she had always assumed that we were dating and never even asked.

    a lot of ppl think im straight.

    me and my female friend would walk out of the cafeteria here at college and we would argue and such as if we were couples and everyone as like "omg are you dating that cute guy" or "you two look like a cute couple"

    I travel a lot with girls and people always think we're a couple - regardless of who I'm with or where we are.

    The last time I was at Disney World with my brother and his family, we ended up sitting at the bar at one place together. That was the first time someone thought we were a couple. It was pretty funny.
