So, last week I met a neurobio/premed freshman here at UT during a question/answer panel thing I sat on, as i'm a graduating senior in the degree. We've gone out a few times and talked a bunch since, and every time its like for 6-7 hours straight just talking. People usually bore me after a few minutes, so this is a good thing. We've got a lot in common, I've been able to help him out with a lot of UT/academic stuff, and things are pretty good. The only problem (well, not really a problem) is that prior to this he's only dated one person - a girl sophmore year of highschool during a relationship that only lasted a month. So, he's a virgin, and prior to the twice we've made out, he hadn't kissed anyone else aside from this girl. He's from North Dakota, and as a result has been heavily closeted and stuff his whole life, so he's just starting to come to terms with being gay. So, our talks are awesome, but when it comes to anything physical, he gets really nervous and uptight, even though I know he likes it. I guess he's not just a gay noob, but a physical intimacy noob in general. He's also pretty shy and reserved in a lot of ways as well. I'm not pushy or forward with him at all and I'm being really patient, which is totally fine. I dont want to make him uncomfortable or anything at all; this is hard to come to terms with. Honestly, I'm not even sure if this is gonna go anywhere (he's still got a lot of experiences he's yet to have), but I want to help him get comfortable with himself, being physical with people, and get some confidence. Any suggestions on this? Anyone been through this before? I'm starting to think that I just need to be a lot more forward and totally break the ice, what do you guys think?
