    I just kinda feel some sadness for the gay boy who wrote the poem. He put himself out on a limb, only to learn his heartthrob wasn't gay, too.

    I know we've all faced rejection, at every age, and a lot of our forum discussions here are about just that. But still, at that age, first rejections must be especially tough, when you haven't yet developed the coping mechanisms to deal with it. I hope the kid is OK. icon_sad.gif

    My nephew went through this in college. I'm really tight with him as I've always felt we have such similar personalities. In an ironic twist of fate I am somewhat responsible for his being born since I introduced his dad to my sister many years ago. His admirer is now one of his best friends and now in his mid-twenties still falls for straight guys. My nephew has even gone to gay bars with him and acts as his wing man. "You must get hit on a lot in gay bars". , I asked him once. He laughed and answered "Oh yeah", and then "you're sooo gorgeous, are you sure you're not gay or bi?" He is a very handsome kid but also on the short side so I doubt he gets the same kind of attention among women. Now his younger brother, who lived with me for six months, is a foot taller (and about 1/2 foot taller than me). He commands attention from everyone but is usually completely oblivious.
