Is Your Terrible Gaydar Making Life A Challenge? You Are Not Alone.

Having a crush on a straight guy is an all-too-common problem for some gay men.

But even worse is not knowing if the guy is gay or straight.

Here’s a tip for finding out: Go up to him and say, “Hey, are you gay?” It’s 2015 and if you already aren’t sure which way he swings, hopefully he won’t be offended.

Or, you know, you could just agonize about it on Whisper like these guys; your choice:

Being gay is harder than most straight guys think. If you see a guy, most of the time you're afraid you'll offend him if you ask. Then you feel bad and lonely if he's not.

I've literally met the perfect guy for me but I don't think he'd reciprocate since I'm not sure if he's gay or bi...This happens to me far too much.

 I really like this guy. Not sure if he's gay or not, kinda looks like it. I really want to hit on him but I'm afraid of him not being gay and spreading the word.

I have a really intense crush on this dude but I don't know if he's gay or not. I stalk his page every so often to try to get clues :(

Hipsters throwing my gaydar off. Can't tell if he's gay or trying to be hipster...

I just want to know if he's gay or not. To know if I can even stand a chance... Is that too much to ask for?

I have a huge crush on another guy (I'm a guy) but I avoid him because I'm not sure if he's gay and I'm too scared to even talk to him, let alone tell him I like him, and because I'm worried I'll be wasting his time/be annoying

he stares at me..i stare back..we 'flirted' once but I don't know if he's gay... but still I think I'm in love....

Hate when a guy compliments me but I'm not sure if he's gay or straight :(

I'm having so much trouble trying to find out if a guy is gay or not. My gaydar is horrible.

I hate when you really like a guy, but you don't know if he's gay/bi or straight. And you're kinda scared to ask...and statistically most guys are straight. *sigh*

Constantly playing the game of

The worst part about being gay is seeing a good looking guy and finding out he's straight or trying to figure out if a guy you like is gay lol

There's a cute guy I want to approach. He works at a place I've been frequenting, but I don't know if he's gay and I'm too afraid I'll get shut down.

I'm in love with a guy in my class but I don't know if he's gay or not

I have the biggest crush on my roommate but I don't know if he's gay or just a really awesome nice guy. I don't want to mess anything up. I'm a guy.

I'm in love with my possibly-gay friend. I'm not sure if he's gay but I'm too scared to ask. Whenever we're together we always have a spark, and everyone tells us how cute we look together..

I really like this guy and we have a lot in common: same hometown, same age range, same work. I just don't know if he's gay like me. I think so. But even then I might not be his type.
