Well I'm a closeted (no one knows) gay guy. I'm not very effeminate and my close friends are your typical masculine straight guys. I do have this gay friend, who, while not being effeminate has tendencies that make it easier to spot that he is gay. We will call him friend A. I have another friend who is one of my best friends, he's a masculine guy who no one would suspect of being gay. Let's call him friend B. Friend A and B have a mutual friend who many have long suspected of being gay. We can call him Friend C. Here's the story: So friend A is very comfortable with his sexuality, he is open to everyone and very comfortable in his openness. Me and him aren't necessarily close ( I have never had a close gay friend, we don't have much in common). But he is a little closer to friend B. But friend B is your typical masculine guy and so are most of the "hommies" if you will that Friend B usually hangs with. Moreover, friend B is usually chasing girls so it was very inconceivable of me to think of him as gay. Friend B and I are usually talking about which girl is hot, he laughs at me for my lack of women, I laugh at him for his choice in women, I've been a wingman for him in the past. So it's the typical buddy relationship. Recently me and friend A were working together on some project when on a particular night of a few drinks I asked him why it is people keep assuming friend C was gay. To which he responded that he knows friend C is gay and that friend C and B had sex. And that friend B fell in love with Friend C and that things went sour and that's why the two don't talk nor like each other. He also told me that friend B once came to his house crying about having to live up to people's expectations and not being able to be himself. Friend B also gave friend A a handjob once. Friend B has been confiding in Friend A. Everything Friend A told me was told to him in confidence and no one else knows. A few questions: 1.Why did friend A tell me all of this? Me and friend A aren't that close and he knows me as being straight. Why did he tell me such personal things about friend B that he hasn't told anyone else? It would ruin friend B's life if people found out. The girls he flirts with would probably hate him, his close friends wouldn't treat him the same anymore. His life would literally flip over it's head. So why tell me and risk everyone else knowing. I understand why friend B told friend A. When I needed to talk to someone about my sexuality, I almost came out to friend A (I'm glad I didn't though). So I get where friend B is coming from. But why would friend A break friend B's trust by telling me? Does he suspect that I'm gay? 2. Could Friend B know friend A told me? I found out a few days ago and just yesterday, Friend B called me to talk about something he read in the newspaper. I found this odd because whenever we communicate through phone, text or facebook, it's usually to make drinking plans or because there's actual thing were doing. We never call each other just to talk about something. It was a pretty insignificant thing too. Does he know I know? 3. I'm attracted to friend B and want to seduce (couldn't think of a less cheesy word to use) him. Is it wrong? if not, how should I go about it? I realized a while back that I actually thought friend B was attractive. It didn't mean much then, but now that friend B might be gay, I feel like going for it. But I don't want to be wrong, in case friend A lied. And I don't want him to suspect friend A told me. 4. Friend B is someone I can relate to. Most gay guys I know have traits that are typically gay and enjoy and hang with friends who are similar. Friend B and I, on the other hand, would never be suspected of being gay making it harder for either of us to come out. I want to confide in friend B about this so that I can at least talk to someone who understands.
