    "Not all gays who talk to you are hitting on you. There are a million reasons why one person strikes up a conversation with another at a bar, a social event or in line for the ATM. If a proximate wrist-flipper looks at you and says something like ‘Wow, this bus sure is late, huh?’, assume innocent intentions.
    Unless, of course, one starts a conversation with you at the gym. There is no reason ever to do this, and anyone who makes chit-chat between treadmills (or, for the love of God, in the locker room) is hitting on you. Deal with it.

    10. Forget about it. Every gay guy has straight friends he originally chatted up because he thought they were cute (we will never admit this, however, so don’t ask specifics), and any proper g’adult will simply cross your name off his ‘potential free breakfast’ list and continue getting to know you. Or he’ll just smile and nod until he can ask what your brother looks like.


    I found that one particularly true. I had a thing for all my roommates at some point.

    I have wanted to ask you this for a long time. As we all know cruising is a no no for you, even a taboo one might say.
    Do you ever get turned on by the idea of cruising?

    So the straight guy (21 yo) lifting next to me who struck up a conversation yesterday with "How do you get so ripped, anyway?" was really hitting on me? I don't think so.

    This.

    Also, just because a guy is hot doesn't mean I immediately want to flirt with him. Context is important.
