    I have an idea about whether my crush is straight or gay but i'm not sure, so what do you guys think? He takes PE A level, which i assume is quite masculine, he takes physics, yet again another ''typical'' male/masculine subject. He plays the guitar...etc from this, what can you gather about his sexuality?

    What? No. You can make assumptions all you like but I honestly do not know how taking PE indicates a sexual interest in women. There are tonnes of gay sportsmen.

    If you're in my position you would probably have the same mentality as me at the moment, I adore him a lot and just hope that there's a chance somewhere

    No, I wouldn't. I am gay myself and I hate people thinking interests in various things are signs of your sexual preferences. I don't see how an interest in History over football would make you gay, or an interest in fencing over horseriding would make you straight. It's ridiculous.

    Yes, if they are a guy and interested in **** they are gay. If female and interested in pussy then lesbian.

    yeah I know it's a shallow assumption but how else can I identify his preferences if i'm too scared to ask?

    You can't unless it is conveyed literally.

    You can't. So you will never know unless you ask - you have to ask. Just ask him out. If he's gay then he'll tell you and be flattered. No biggie.

    The fashion industry apparently has a disproportionate percentage of gay male employees, but that's no solid indicator of sexual preference.

    Some of the world's best ballet dancers are not gay. Some of the best artists the world has known are not gay. Some of the most highly respected models are not gay.

    You talk ****.

    That says nothing about anything. So many fashion designers - Tommy Hilfiger, Donatella Versace, Roberto Cavalli, etc - are not gay.

    Edit: I saw your edit. Good save.

    Unless you straight up ask him or he tells you, there's no way to know for sure

    Absolutely nothing.

    Also, bisexual (as well as pansexual, asexual and other sexualities) is something that some people are.

    If you want to ask him out, ask him out. If you don't want to ask him out then accept you may never know and move on.

    Well judging by the list that you've provided, I can gather that you're a moron.
