    His name is Michael and i have him in my Internal Servers class and i am developing a crush on him. We were partners today for our class discussion review and he had his hand on my thigh icon_eek.gif The only problem is that i am not sure if he is gay/bi like myself but we have been hitting it off on a friendship level. I think that he is very sweet and cute and i don't care about his race actually. Do you guys think Michael might get with me? icon_smile.gif

    If he pushes your hand off of his thigh, he's not interested. Anything else, go for it.

    Believe it or not, I've broken the ice many times with gay guys and straight guys.....by asking if they were ticklish and pretending to give them a gentle tickle on their ribs. It opens up a lot of chances for conversation and if he seems like he doesn't like it...tell him you were only joking. If he doesn't seem to mind, then tell him you wanted to see him smile and take it from there. icon_wink.gif

    i would VETO the suggestion of tickling a guy if you're just becoming friends and if you're unsure of his sexuality.

    To be honest, I've NEVER tickled or been tickled by any of my straight male friends and the only time when a gay guy has tickled me was when we were both drunk and in bed and i hated it.

    I like to quote movies. I bring up random lines from Sordid Lives, Latter Days, The Birdcage... If he connects the line to the movie then you have a good clue about his sexuality and a good conversation starter. This is also a good way to start conversations in a crowd of people you don't know.

    Here in the South, I can walk up in a group and throw in a line like "They had to reinforce her stool with LUG NUTS!" or 'Not I've got white trash feelin' sorry for me!' (These are from Sordid Lives. Del Shores is a big gay name but I'm not sure if this movie has a large following outside of the South.) If someone responds then I know that I'm hanging out with that person the rest of the night.

    lol, but HE was the one with the hand on YOUR thigh. icon_wink.gif

    Perhaps he's feeling you bad.

    Get to know him as a friend and see what happens.

    Yeah, I suspect foul motives here.

    I have never tickled or been tickled by someone I don't know to break the ice.

    No foul motives intended, it's worked for me more times than I can count. icon_biggrin.gif
