Do any of you gay guys and gals do it?
You meet a straight person, feel an attraction rising up (purely physical in my case) and then try to shut it down?
Am I right in doing so or should I not bother about it so much?
you don't have to shut down your attraction per se, just realize that nothing is going to come out of it. it's definitely possible to have the hots for a straight person while still being realistic that nothing going to happen. not all lust has to have an endpoint/goal.
>I usually use hate to block it, finding as many mistakes and errors on that person as I can. Works pretty well.
This. A thousand times this. If you can't find any mistakes, invent some. Cut ties with them completely if you feel like you can't resist.
I have no idea how bisexuals make friends. Usually when I become good friends with a guy, I'll end up being attracted to him to a certain degree, which can range from - yeah, if he initiated something I wouldn't shut it down, to oh god, fuck me right now, I NEED it, please, I beg of you - a quick handjob! a blowjob, anything!!!
Since most guys I know and am friends with look either above average or smoking hot, I have to resort to finding flaws with a microscope on them, otherwise it's guaranteed I'll fall for one of them.
Girls are your safe haven. At a new job or place, if you have the option, always choose to befriend women instead of the guys. Avoid shallow whores, find the intelligent, introverted ones. Trust me, they'll have your back through hell and back, as long as you show them kindness and respect. Most of the clever ones aren't into girly stuff either, so you can talk to them about a wide range of topics without being pressured to "omg, like, let's go shopping". Just make it clear you're not interested in that.
I try to convince myself that nothing can ever happen between me and a straight guy.
But then one I have the hots for says "hi" to me and I can almost hear my ass screaming like a fangirl in front of her favourite celebrity.
I'm just too horny all the time ngl
