I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

It can be very easy as a gay man to misinterpret feelings of friendship with those of love. It has happened to the best of us. You spend every day with someone, share your most intimate secrets, laugh together, cry together, shop together, drink together. Then one day your friend will flash you a smile and you get a warm tingly feeling in the pit of your stomach (and somewhere south of your stomach). You start to look at him in a different way and feelings start to grow alongside a burgeoning obsession. Then every time he talks about another guy or kisses one in a club you die a little inside and a psychosis starts to take hold. Suddenly you decide that he doesn’t give you enough attention and you start to get more and more possessive of his time. Obviously he notices this and begins to distance himself from your increasingly unhinged ways and this is when you break. You call him crying to confess your undying love and pledge to be with him forever, an offer he politely and rightly rebuffs. You are then left as a broken shell of the man you once were, emotionally frayed, alone and minus one good friend.

Does this sound like you?

Have you ever fallen for a friend?

Has a friend ever fallen for you?


  1. Sounds like the coworker I work with, he's cute and the day i met him I had a crush on him however he has a boyfriend and vows he would never cheat on him. However there are moments where are faces get too close that i'm afraid one day it will become something more. I'm afraid that breaking point will come real soon!

  2. Please!! Do tell.Actually in my case in my case it's with a straight friend and it is way too exhausting to be in such a situation.
