OK to save a lot of trouble (tho for some... entertainment...) i'm just gonna cut to the chase. I'm 15/bi (sure about the girl part never been w/a guy but pretty sure about that) and came out to my best friend last week. I'll just call him todd. Anyway, from the time i've known him he is undoubtedly gay (too much to tell) and i'm pretty sure he likes me considering he's jamming his limbs into me whenever we see a movie/sit next to each other and i've woken up in the middle of the night when we've been next to each other in sleeping bags or somethin and his hand has been on my face or his legs on top of mine. (The first instance i took the hand off and he hypervenalated for 30 minutes then went back to sleep but claims he was never awake...) That is just y i think he likes me/not y i think he's gay. Anyway so he took it pretty well at first started makin inside jokes that night around my friends. He didn't believe it really either i dun think (i am literally about the str8est guys ever). Talked to him that night he realized i was serious and the next day my friend is over at his house and i had just woken up/signed online and he said he wanted to talk about it. Friend found out b/c [Todd] is a dumbass and left the window up and went to the bathroom... From the way he acts (VERY touchy/always thinking of ways to act gay/can't think of a str8 thing about him) u would think that he was already accepting of himself and would be ready to come out as well but he's professing str8ness and making up excuses (admittedly at this point) about reasons why it should freak him out (other than if i was attracted to him which i told him i wasn't... little white lie). Won't be seeing him for about two weeks, as he's gone on a trip (i'm leavin tomorrow as well but will be back thurs to check up on this), but he just left and at night he says that he's had trouble sleeping lately/can't go to sleep. In sum i've got a very gay guy who is deeeep in the closet and wants to stay there and i dun know how to get him out. He pretends to be disgusted about the thought of guys and says he just acts gay to make fun of it rather than him actually being gay. However that does not explain his constant boners around guys when no girls are in sight and he's just touched them... I asked him a few months ago if he was and he threw some cover and i think i pushed him back in by doin that (not in the way he acts but in his acceptance). He's told me plenty of times tho that i'm the most trustworthy person he knows and he basicly entrusts me w/anything from simple stuff to his email passwords (don't ask me i didn't ask him... lol), so i thought that coming out to him would be a catalyst but apparently he's so deep in it that its looking like it will take a lot more than that. He's said that i can't act gay around him/no gay jokes either anymore (didn't really do that much in the first place anyway) and that he wants me to get a gf/am not bi/am just confused... very confusing indeed. After reading the forums here i sorta got the idea that a lot of gay guys don't come out/accept it till they are married w/children. This is dissapointing but i'm sure somethin can be done to ease him along. I have to go for two days and then after that leave for quite a while (is why i'm posting now and not then) but would really appreciate some advice on this. Questions answered when i get back as well, thanks all!
