How to tell if a guy is gay? – Here are some signs that may show if he is playing for our team
What do you do if you meet this really hot dude and need to find out if he is gay so you can make a move on him? Well, you could just ask him of course, but life isn’t always that simple. He may be a friend you are afraid of losing, or you could just be afraid. Period. So here are some good – although admittedly stereotypical – advice on how to tell if a guy is gay.
Has he had any previous relationships? With this we mean real, confirmable relationships and not some fuzzy stories about all the super-hot women he was sleeping with on his last trip to Cancun. Where he just happened to travel all alone without any friends to confirm his conquests…
Certainly he may just be a shy person having problems hooking up with the opposite sex. But chances are also that he is more interested in guys than in women and that he just haven’t dared to admit it to himself yet. You may just be the one he has been waiting for helping him getting out his shell/closet.

His wandering eyes
When you are hanging out with your friend, does he light up every time a pretty girl passes by? Single straight guys quickly loses interest in you if they see an opportunity for flirting with a woman.
And if his wandering eyes tend to follow other guys instead of women, then there is no doubt. Unfortunately for you though, that also probably means he’s not that into you…
Does your crush notice every time you have a new haircut or compliment you on those really cool new jeans you just bought? Either he is a flaming metrosexual or chances are that he is in fact gay. Straight men usually just aren’t that interested in your appearance and rarely notices those cute little outfits you are wearing.
And if he compliments your girlfriend on her new Prada-boots, move forward with confidence (right, Elle Woods?) There is no way a straight man knows his way around women’s shoe brands, maybe unless he’s just been doing inventory during a very expensive divorce settlement.
Many gay men adore people – and especially women – with strong and bigger-than-life personalities. People that dare to be different and who are not afraid of being judged by others are often admired.
So if your love interest suddenly bursts out with “No more wire hangers!” or starts humming “It’s raining men,” he may definitely be playing for our team. A lot of Madonna, Britney and Miley tunes on his iPod is not a bad indication either.
And that is how to tell if a guy is gay. Or, at least they can be some signs of being gay. But, of course, you may really never know unless you actually ask him.
