These days it’s so hard to know who is gay and who isn’t. Men don’t exactly walk around carrying signs letting us single girls know what team they play for. So how are we supposed to know if the guy that we are pining after (or dating) is gay? What are some signs that we should be looking for?
Several months ago I attempted (and failed miserably) at trying to date a guy who just wasn’t that into me. I did everything in my power I could to get him to like me. Desperately wanting him to become my boyfriend, I came up with what I thought was a a fool-proof plan. I bought two bottles of cheap red wine and proceeded to get my crush so drunk that he was unable to drive himself home. Like clockwork, my crush ended up having to spend the night at my apartment, in my bed. I had him right where I wanted him. Dean’s plot had worked like a charm, or so I thought…
But the reality is, the next morning my crush and I woke up in the same exact position that we had fallen asleep in; on opposite sides of the bed. The truth is, he never once even tried to put the moves on me during the night. This should have been a clear indication to me that my boy crush was gay. But no. Instead I wrote off the entire incident as him being way too drunk to put the moves on me. Oh the excuses us straight girls sometimes use for our gay male crushes…
I can assure you that if a straight boy ever finds himself piss drunk in a single girl’s bed, he will put the moves on her. This is a fact. A drunk straight man has no boundaries whatsoever when he’s in a girls apartment. None.
Don’t let yourself fall victim to falling in love with someone who plays for the opposite team. As a dating advice expert, Dean is here to tell you that there are warning signs that you should be paying attention to.
5 Signs That Your Guy Could Be Gay
- After you proceed to get him drunk off of two bottles of red wine, and basically force him to spend the night at your place, he still makes no attempt, whatsoever, at trying to hook-up with you.
- He thoroughly enjoys singing show tunes and knows all the words to every Broadway musical ever written.
- Your gay friends have repeatedly told you that he bats for the other team.
- He has expressed (several times) an interest in participating in a Flashmob.
- When he finally does kiss you for the first time, he completely freaks out, runs out of your apartment, and decides never to speak to you again.
Dean is here to tell you that if you have ever experienced any of the above scenarios, it’s time to get yourself a new crush, and fast! After all, it’s never fun to crush on a guy…who’s crushing on some other guy.
If, however, after reading these 5 warning signs, you are still unsure about whether your guy crush is gay, there is (luckily) a test on OKCupid that you can take called, “The Is Your Boyfriend Gay Test“. It is a simple 15-question multiple-choice test that only takes a few minutes to complete.
I recently took the test and it confirmed for me what I had been speculating for months; my guy crush is indeed gay. I got the “I’m sorry to have to be the person to tell you this.. but honey, you’re losing him to the other side and there is nothing you can really do about it” result.
So there we have it. It’s been officially confirmed by OkCupid. Dean once crushed on a gay guy. My only wish is that he would have stuck around long enough for the two of us to have participated in at least one Flashmob together. Oh the fun we could have had…had he simply not run away.
