    So you're joking around with another guy and then all of a sudden: BAM! He says "You think you're acting cute, huh?" and signals fly all over your gaydar.

    ...Well, maybe. Is this, er, normal for heterosexual males? Or would you raise your eyebrows at the guy? Or is there a choice C?

    Pretty sure it would go: raise left eyebrow, move head to left, cock it to the right, smile. icon_twisted.gif

    Well, you said it. It's not like he said "oh, you're cute", or "the thing you said is cute". These are different from whatever he said. Seems pretty heterosexual to me.

    Have to agree. Sounds more like he might have been clocking you.


    sorry, I don't know if it's a code or somehow an esoteric secondary meaning to it, but what does "clocking you" mean?

    You could always reply with...."Well, I am cute, don't you think?"..which sounds like both a cocky straight guy or a playful gay guy....and his response should tell you all you need to know. pirate_2.gif

    Straight guys doing shit like this are usually trying to get some attention but have NO intention of pursuing anything with the gay guy.

    They send out signals, reap the flattery, don't care how they've yanked your heart around. My advice, keep your head on meticulously straight with straights.

    Unless a guy says, "I want to fuck you", there isn't a way to know. I think the hanging on every word a guy says is what makes straight guys so paranoid about hanging out with gay guys.

    He would say the same thing to a girl. If anything, it leans more towards an insult because clearly he's not finding you amusing.

    I use that expression as a way to let someone know that they aren't amusing.

    Yea, that isn't gay at all, more like something a male would say to a female though. I've heard it used so many times

    "You think you're acting cute, huh?" doesn't mean he thinks you're cute.

    I don't get how this one gets construed into "in the closet and likes me" at all. Not even a little. Just saying.

    Maybe it's because you "want to believe" that there is a chance. In my past, I've mis-read signals before with a handsome friend solely for the reason that I wanted him to be "interested". When I found out that he wasn't, and that it was in the best interest of our friendship to not "out" myself to him, then it was time to move on.icon_wink.gif

    Nope, nothing there. This doesn't mean anything. In fact it could almost be a sly insult depending on the context. its a big difference from "Oh, you're cute" and "you think you're acting cute"

    but you already know this thats why you left the key words, "you think.." out of the subject title

    Does the 'straight' guy know you are gay?

    I wouldn't consider it a come-on and your pings on the gaydar might just be wishful thinking. I agree with

    That pretty much sums my reaction to every "I'm into my straight friend" threads, in which someone posts what alleged straight "mixed signals" which are actually nothing but a friendly hetereosexual guy acting like...a friendly hetereosexual guy.

    I don't know why gay guys continue to put themselves through this "I love my straight friend" madness. Try loving a guy who can actually love you back, that's my advice.

    There are many reasons, however you would probably have to be "mad" to understand the "madness"..or to put it another way, you would have had to have gone through this to be able to understand the reasons why someone else would do it also. icon_wink.gif

    yeah, these guessing about alleged straight guy threads is getting a little stale.
    Hanging on every guy's word doesn't help. If u want to know, u have to ask.
    Simple as that.

    That's fine and good. I get that. But "you think you're acting cute" is kind of an insult if you think about it. No way he's into you based on that line and that line alone.
