this is literally the only reason i've never asked anyone out. i have people that i think flirt with me but i can never 100% tell because it's always at work and most people are nice + also me asking them out at work could get me in trouble
I know the dating pool is much shallower for lgbt but your sense of shame isn't fully developed if you'd risk this without confirming that the attraction is mutual. No pity for autists who are so thirsty they ignore obvious social cues or lack thereof before running into this situation assfirst.
Sometimes I'm just not sure whether the person I like is gay too. In the past, they always turned out to be straight, but my current crush kind of makes my gaydar fluctuate between socially awkward hetero and closeted homo. How do you do it, OP? How do you bring yourself to ask someone of unknown orientation out?
>>5653359 That's a huge, stupid waste of time. You're the autist if you think social encounters are such labyrinthine things full of pomp and consequence. There is literally nothing wrong with being proactive in your dating life.
>at ralphs in the gay district >see qt3.14 working at the cheese both >have way too long a conversation about cheese >he lets me sample all the cheeses >cuts me up some special half sized block to take home >hes really dorky and cute, says things like 'dude' >has tons of pictures of pokemon up at his workplace >dorky enough to know what a tyrannitar is, and tall enough to be one >i leave my card >tell him to call me if he wnats to talk more pokemon or any other pretense to meet up >seven days later i post this >still no qt cheese man in my life
convinced hes straight. would figure. i cant seem to ever meet legitimately dorky cute guys if they are gay.
>>5653350 Knowing this guy, I'm almost certain he's never had any relationships. Not only is our entire town fairly antilegbutt; but we're both nerds. I've managed to finalise a plan, though: >Be British >LGBT history month coming up >Complain about it, in the typical British manner that one would >Gauge reaction >If he asks why it bothers me so much >>"As a gay myself, I don't like colours and feel-good disco-pop, and I feel bad that everyone else has to be subjected to it thanks to my minority group!" >>"Oh, I didn't know you were gay..." Then something may or may not happen.
>>5653513 You're turning it into a circus based on nothing. Have you even dated before at all? Asking someone out isn't an insult. A rejection is not such a horror. Why are you so eager to spread your irrational fear? What answer do you have for the wasted time, the poor chances without taking your own, and most importantly the many many people you could be dating that aren't flamingly visible?
>>5651063 Asked this super cute guy that I worked with. I thought he was bi or at least curious. We buddied up due to common sense of humor. After a couple of beers one night, I plucked up the courage and asked him if I could take him out sometime. He politely declined, but we still hang out.
