Good friend, but I'm not gay.

I don't have very many friends right now, a result of being incredibly anti-social and avoidant in high school and it's bit me in the ass recently.

I had a two and a half year relationship, but that fell apart because I lied about looking at p*** and I'm trying to get my ass to get over it.

I'm just kind of awkward socially, but I'm trying to get better at it.

But that's not the point of this.

I'm straight and I finally met this guy that's pretty cool and would be a great friend, friend being the key word. But he just told me he was gay and was saying I was charming and stuff and I feel like he might have a crush on me.

I have no problem with homosexuality, it's just that I'm batting for a different team and it's frustrating that the first good friend that comes along might come with all this complicated s***.

It's just f***** up.

  • I think the best thing to do would be honest. Tell him what you said here- you don't have a problem with him or his sexuality, but you just need a friend right now, nothing more.
    I know it's so much easier said than done, but one of my friends went through this recently - it was tough but he just had to tell the guy he was flattered, but wasn't interested in a relationship.
    Good luck

  • hey. its alrigt. smile (: you said yourself he would be a great friend! so be friends. you can hint to him that you like girls not guys but honestly it seems like ou guys will be fine as just friends. just make sure not to flirt with him.
