    Hey guys I have a little issue....

    I'm finally moving in about two weeks and will be living with a roommate. He seems like a very friendly guy he surfs, plays sports, and I think we're going to get along perfectly! The problem is he doesn't know that I'm Gay =( should I tell him? I'll be living with this guy for about 6 weeks since I'm doing summer term then will return back home July 31st and will end up starting fall term August 24th.

    If I do tell my "roomie" how should I start the conversation? I haven't met him in person yet we have mainly communicated through Facebook and text messages. I don't want my roommate to feel uncomfortable.....I guess I would bring it up if he goes so dude how was your last relationship? How does that sound?

    Thanks guys y'all are AMAZING and give such great advice =)

    Let him bring it up.
    If he is straight at some point he will likely start talking about girls.
    You say "Girls don't really get me horny"

    Just tell him... the first night. Girls will come up in conversation... say "I'm gay." And be done with it. Don't forfeit your summer... hey, he might end up getting drunk and taking advantage of you one night if he has that in the back of his head...

    I have lived with guys and it wasn't until the day i moved out that they asked if i were gay... thing is, the conversation never came up with my roomies, and it was never a big deal for me to bring it up. he doesn't have to tell you he's straight, just as you shouldn't have to explain you're gay. if you're bringing someone over, i'd mention it, but unless he asks or it comes up, i don't see the need to throw it at someone.
