    I was walking minding my own business, and this girl I know walked up to me, and randomly said "you look so fabulous" and smiled.:nothing:

    This got me thinking.

    You don't usually associate the word "fabulous" with a straight heterosexual male.:nothing:

    I normally hear the word used by fashion designers. So my natural inclination was to respond with, "Oh thank you darling!".

    But I stopped myself,

    Because I didn't know how to react if it was a compliment or a subliminal insult:nothing: that she thinks I look gay.


    Or maybe I am being paranoid.

    So it is a compliment?


    Because I didn't speak to her after that, and blocked her on whatsapp.

    Oh give me strength. Why did you take the word "fabulous" to mean you look "gay"? (I'm not sure what you mean by "looking gay", tbh) I don't get it. It's a bloody compliment, accept it as such. If you're in doubt, look in a dictionary.

    When I think of the word "fabulous", it usually holds feminine connotations to it.

    The colour pink, the fashion magazine Fabulous,

    Type fabulous on google then click images, and that proves my point right there.

    Oh my god, that's such an overreaction. You have no idea what she meant by it. Maybe it's just a word she uses a lot to describe things?
    Why don't you just ask her if she thinks you're gay?

    It could be just a thing she says and therefore a nice compliment, or she could have interpreted you as gay, i'd say it's about 50/50 either way. That being said, if she actually does think you're gay It's sounds like it was an honest mistake, not an insult. Unblock her and just ask if that's what she meant by fabulous. If I were you I wouldn't waste energy getting annoyed at someone because they maybe meant something in a most likely non malicious way.
