Many girls stay in relationships with gay boyfriends without realizing it. While there’s nothing wrong with it – each of us is trying to create lives that feel right to us – it’s critical to be honest with one another. Before confronting him, check out these possible signs your boyfriend may be gay.
1. He claims he doesn’t like and understand gays
If your boyfriend can’t stop talking about lesbians and gays, even when you say nothing on this topic, he may hide the truth from you. They say, if you hate something, this means you’re interested in it. Maybe your boyfriend shows his rage toward gays to prevent you and others from guessing he’s gay. After all, it’s easy to understand gays and lesbians, they simply want to be happy so they build relationships just like every couple around the globe.
2. He has a weird sense of style
Fashion is the perfect way to find out if your boyfriend is gay. The thing is, gays have fantastic sense of style. They are genuinely fashionable. If he’s obsessed with fashion trends and he spends hours trying to mix and match his numerous pieces of clothing, paying attention to little details, this may be a warning sign. It’s normal when a guy has a great sense of style, but when he goes too far it’s not normal. Moreover, if he always criticizes everything you wear in a negative way, maybe it’s time to have a serious talk.
3. He makes more eye contact with men than women
When hanging out together, pay attention to his eye contact. If you catch him staring at other men, ask him about his choice. Typically, guys make eye contact with girls. If your boyfriend isn’t interested in women, it’s one of the possible signs he is gay. The best thing is when he makes eye contact with you only. That’s the talk!
4. Does he like divas?
Most gay men I know are huge fans of celebrities who lead unusual lifestyles, have unusual mindset, looks and habits. Find out more facts about your boyfriend’s idols. This will help you to figure out the truth. Again, not all men who love Beyonce, Rihanna, Cher or Paul O’Grady are gays, so be extra careful with your conclusions.
5. He loves it when other men notice him
When your boyfriend craves other men’s attention, he may be unsure of his sexuality. It’s like a hot guy staring at you at a college party. The feelings are similar. Straight men crave women’s attention so if your other half is different, he may be gay.
6. He has more beauty and skincare products than you
Although it’s crucial that your man takes care of his appearance, his grooming shouldn’t take hours to accomplish. My gay friend has more beauty, skincare and makeup products than any other woman has and he says he spends up to 2 hours in the bathroom every morning before going to work. If this sounds familiar to you, it’s a red flag.
7. He has a suspiciously close male friend
Does your guy has a suspiciously close male friend? Have you ever noticed something weird or suspicious? Anything from lingering gazes, secret conversations, sweet touches to hugs that last longer than usual? You don’t have to be paranoid to notice those things, but you also doesn’t want to stand in their way, do you?
Finding out that your boyfriend is gay isn’t fun. Don’t make a mountain out of a molehill, though. First of all, confront him and have a serious talk. A lot of gay men don’t even know and realize they are gay so you may help him to find his true calling. Even if he’s gay, it doesn’t mean you can’t be friends. Gays are fabulous and loyal friends.
