    The reaction was a little different than what I expected. He told me "I been knew since I first met you." However, there is nothing remotely gay about me. I don't have any stereotypical gay mannerisms and I have a fairly deep voice. I just don't know how everyone is clocking me left and right these days. I don't want to come across as gay, but I am very much proud of being gay. icon_rolleyes.gif

    That's what you think. Your own perceptions of yourself and others' perceptions of you can be completely different.

    You may think so, but as the saying goes, perception is reality.

    Why do you make do this?

    First, I can't figure out who said what out of your sentence. Second, I think if he is fine with you and he is not gay, try to maintain friendship with personal space with him. He might think you are coming on to him. Good job though, you always crack me up.

    bro, the other day u were talking to some chick that asked if u were gay at ur school....right?

    Now, ur roommate told u he "been knew" u were gay..

    bro........ You're obviously giving off gay vibes if people are asking you if you're gay and people already know you're gay without actually saying it.

    You probably have gay moments. Like you're not gay acting all the time, but there's certain things that u do, that other people notice that make them think you're gay.

    congrats btw

    Being gay is superior to being straight so embrace the fact that you're setting off straight people's gaydar. Congratulations on starting to break down the bondage of the closet door.

    You can't worry about people thinking you are gay. It'll happen and kudos to them for being very perceptive because you ARE gay. I used to hate it when people would know but now I just say "oh ok, cool". He could know because you never seem interested in girls, he has seen you check out guys, whatever. Plus that is a better than a negative reaction where he stops being your friend!

    I think Boland's in denial on how "straight-acting" he is.
