I told him that it was brought to my attention but I thought nothing of it because I don't dwindle on what I don't know for sure, although through personal experiences I am pretty sure he is gay, and I don't get involved in rumors and other drama. He then asks me what I think about his sexual orientation and I told him that I honestly felt that he was and that it is by no means a bad thing. I was very supportive about it and trying to make him feel comfortable by letting him know that I completely support the gay community, again he thinks i'm straight. I then told him that this isn't a conversation for text and that it'd be best to discuss this in person because this topic is important for him.
I see him the next day and he says that he is not gay. That he has borderline personality disorder and he will explain it to me when were in a more private environment. I look this up when I get home and I'm kinda shocked by what I read. I want to talk to him and say that there's nothing wrong with him, he's completely normal. I do not, however, want to aggravate him or make the situation worse. He's a pretty emotional guy.
How should I go about doing this? It's the first time I've dealt with a situation like this and I don't want to screw it up although I feel as if I've done what I can for the moment. I personally just refuse to believe that he has a "problem" and is "messed up in the head" as he claims.
Any and all feedback is appreciated. Thanks!
