    "I'm straight but I have feelings for man". There's something strangely contradictory about this statement, I'm not sure what it is just yet.

    I've had several 'crushes' on the same sex, doesn't mean I am homosexual.

    Apparently it's normal for men to have a man crush. Whatever that means?
    So, don't worry.

    Let's not turn this thread into another "Everybody is bi" debate. I doubt the OP is really bothered about it.

    OP: You can either wait until you get over this person, or you can try and figure out what these feelings mean. You haven't said how old you are, so it may just be a phase if you're at an age were hormones run wild. Are you attracted to their looks or their personality?

    It would be a good idea to try and determine what these feelings mean. If it isn't a phase then you need to figure out what your sexuality is. It isn't the end of the world though if you do have an attraction to people of the same-sex.

    No one has to figure out what their sexuality is. Of course it's plausible to want to understand yourself, but you don't have to fit into any specific category. So OP, don't worry about it

    Embrace it :woo:

    It is by no means abnormal i would say, key thing is to just try things and see how you feel about them, if you are not comfotable with the idea of anything with a guy then dont as long as you stick to only doing what you are comfortable with you will be fine.

    As for getting over a crush i think we all know that it takes some time and you will get over them anyway, there quite often not a long lasting thing.

    If you have feelings for another man, you're either gay or bisexual. A 'mancrush' isn't a case of having feelings for another man, it's idolising them and thinking they're brilliant and a great person, not wanting to do them up the pooper. Bromances are the same thing, if I had to give a random pop culture reference, look at Joey and Chandler in Friends, thats a bromance.

    For instance I have a mancrush on Trent Reznor (lead singer of NIN), I think the guy is brilliant, he can't do wrong, is intensely cool and if I ever met the guy I'd probably go into teenage female japanese fangirl mode, but I don't have feelings for the guy, god no.

    What I'm trying to get at here is all normal guys think other guys are great and look up to them etc, but they don't have feelings for them unless they are a certain way inclined or just very confused.
