He might be straight. Should I go for it?

    So there's this guy in a couple of my classes. I find him incredibly attractive but I am afraid to approach him because I think he might be straight. He dresses pretty fashionably and he's in nursing and my gaydar is flashing, however I was told by someone who sort of knows him that he's straight, or at least that's what he tells people. Should I give him my number anyway? I would hate to be the gay guy hitting on the straight guy but I have serious doubts that he's straight.

    That's a very tough situation but I think that maybe, you should just try. If you are getting a gay vibe and have a tendency to be correct in your assumption, then I say go for it. You never know.

    But if you want to go a different route, why not try and get to know him? Like just be casual and when it feels right, just ask.

    Good luck!

    I think the first step is just to approach him and say hi. If you guys hit off then talk to him some more. Exchanging numbers on the first go might scare him off. Instead why don't you simply try getting to know him. I'm sure you two will exchange numbers in no time!

    Oh and if he's not gay or not interested, then at least you guys can be friends!

    I think the first step is to stop thinking that because a guy is in nursing, then he must be gay.

    I say skip him. Reads like a distraction.

    To be perfectly honest, you shouldn't consider his fashion sense a possibility. If your truly interested in pursuing a relationship with him I recommend befriending him first. After befriending him for quite a while begin to discuss a few LGBTQ related topics perhaps you can discuss the latest headline at the time. If his response is positive then later down the road when your comfortable and the time is correct you can disclose your sexuality to him.
