    Question for the girls of thestudentroom. Recently I've "done myself up a bit" as I've lost weight, gotten slightly toned, improved my dress sense and got my hairdresser friend to cut my hair and give it style.

    I think I look good and the attention from girls has increased a bit however I seem to be receiving a fair few "gay" comments. I've been asked multiple times when I'm out if I'm gay, one of those girls I ended up getting with. A couple other times it has actually been men, I'm not homophobic I just explain I'm not gay but thanks for the compliment.

    Anyway girls...gay vibes...are they a turnoff?

    It won't necessarily make girls less attracted to you, but it may, obviously, make them less likely to pursue you as they believe you are pursuing men. So I suppose you could call it that.

    I really don't know until I've met you as what someone in one area finds gay, someone else doesn't.

    Maybe you should start flirting a bit with girls instead of talking to them too much like their girl mates? Hanging around with tons of girls is also not a good look. You might think its pimp but it can actually look like you're the gay best friend. Also keep away from the Russell Brand 'tight as hell jeans' look. It doesn't suit most men

    Use the fact that you can communicate well to girls in some ways to your advantage

    If you look a bit gay, people may ask you about it just to clarify it for theirselves. But if you dress ok and behave normally, just do not pay too much attention to that.

    This is funny cause I had the same thing but I am a girl tempted to grow my hair out...but kind of use this as a filter in a way, even though I'm Bi (not actually openly come out yet) so not really bothered by it.

    I personally find guys who are slightly feminine quite attractive, but maybe that's just me.

    Is it mainly girls saying it, or mainly guys?

    I think when girls think you are gay, they will treat you as a mate and ask your opinion on which bra to choose...

    Try to dress something brief and casual - and sporty! It might be better i guess... I always think those guys who look like models are gays lol.

    And if you look cute, you will be easy to be cobsidered as a gay..
