    A friend of mine is openly gay and I respect that. But i also believe he thinks I am. I am afraid to go up to him and tell him I'm not, because he may get upset.

    What should I do?
    I know its a difficult one to answer

    Thanks

    Tell him a story about a girl that you got with (or make one up just for the moment) and he should get the hint ahaha

    When you're with him and you walk past an attractive girl just be like "she's well fit" to him, I'm sure that'd make him realise.

    What the hell is his problem lol...

    You don't need to tell him you're not gay, he simply has to respect the fact you aren't.

    People like him are so annoying.

    It could just be genuine mistake of the friend. Perhaps the friend thought they saw the anon flirting with another guy or acting like they had a crush on another guy, but the friend was misinterpreting the anon just being friendly. I mean, I don't see why somebody would treat a friend as if they're gay unless they genuinely thought they were?

    Anyway OP, you should just say it outright. Like "Bro, you're my friend and I respect your sexuality, but I think that you think I'm gay when I'm not."

    Go for broke and be honest. It's not the end of the world for this friend of your's if they do find out you're straight, the problem being you may have to prove it to them.

    Has it actually said to you that he thinks your're gay? Because if he has, surely you'd just say that you weren't and that would be that?

    In all seriousness though, sometimes your friends can tell more about you than you know about yourself. I was 'straight' for about 6 years and I would often get asked if I was gay and my friends often told me they thought I was gay and I'd say no. But now I realise that I was in denial all that time, and they were right.
