Man + Man + Woman = ???

True Love?


So........ There's this guy that I've really liked for a long time now. He's been my best friend for a while, and my feelings have grown for him overtime, but the problem is that he's straight. Yes, I'm a gay guy, and I'm also a seventeen year old. So, he always hung around me, even though he's a year younger. He actually used to be really annoying, but then it became something else. I started to feel lonely every time he wasn't near me. He found out I liked him by accident one day, and ever since he started acting real flirty, touching my arm, rubbing my leg, and he was always looking directly into my eyes. We ride the same bus, and we always interlock our legs across the isles, he even rubs my leg sometimes. But he was "straight" Anyway, a few weeks ago we were talking late at night, and I said that he had no idea what it was like to keep my sexuality a secret for so long, (I'm out now) and he said that you would be surprised....... So of course I take this the wrong way and try to kiss him the next day, big mistake. He rejected me, but then he told me that it was ok, we could still be friends. Right. He started ghosting me, and he refused to answer my texts, and he avoided me in school. A couple days ago I was actually able to get him to have a conversation with me and I asked if I did something wrong, and why was he ignoring me. So, he responded by saying I was being an idiot, and I was paranoid. So, I told him that he was full of shit and that if he didn't want to be my friend anymore that was fine, but at least have the balls to tell me. He never responded, but now he's being overly nice to me. I don't know how to act around him, and he is starting to avoid me again, but every time I look at him my heart breaks. So, I guess I'm just looking for advice........

Ash, Accountant of Light,

I am a married guy, who struggles now with feeling bisexual. I don't know what advice to give, because I don't know what to do for myself either.

I just hope you, and him, find what you are both looking for. Maybe it's each other, maybe not. But I hope something happens soon to answer those questions.

I wish I would have had an opportunity to explore my sexuality with a gay guy when I was your age. Maybe I would have turned out different.

Nikki, Warrior of the Poor,

Thank you for your honesty, I really appreciate you sharing it with me. I'm so sorry that you were never able to fully explore yourself, and I hope that you can end up doing what makes you happy !

I guess I didn't have to label it, and say I wish I would have explored with a gay guy. I just wish I would have explored sex with a guy... gay, bi or just curious.
