I saw 3 main signs that he was gay:
(1) He spoke like he was flaming when he told stories (One of which included him turning down a girl’s propositions for sex)
(2) He made WAY too much effort to tell me about all the “hot model-types” he gets with
(3) He works in the Fashion Industry
Now, I know what you’re going to say. I’m not being fair about 1 & 3. Guys are allowed to be animated when they tell stories. And not all guys have to take every girl that throws herself at them. And not every guy that works in the Fashion Industry is gay. You may even argue that 2 only occurred because he was self-conscious and wanted to impress me.
I’ll let you say all that, and then I’ll win the argument with a very mature “Whatever, dude, HE’S GAYYY!!!” Not because of one of those reasons but because the combination was almost too much to bear without yelling out — “How don’t you know?!”
At one point in the night, as he bugged his eyes out of his head while telling a story about a girl who wanted to marry him after an hour without even knowing his last name, he yelled, “HELLLLL-OOOO” and I literally had to stifle a laugh by drinking my Diet Coke. As a matter of fact, I had to use that tactic so many times he probably thought I had some sort of drinking obsession.
As he went on and on about “crazy” girls he’s taken out and how things didn’t work out with them because they were “so insane,” I sat there thinking, “No, dude, it didn’t work out BECAUSE THEY’RE NOT MEN!”
This was a first for me (ya know, dating someone who didn’t realize he was gay). I didn’t know what the Hell to do. I got through the rest of the date (barely) and gave him a kiss on the cheek when we parted.
Have you ever gone on a date with a flamboyant guy and wondered if he was gay or, at the very least, incredibly effeminate?
