Ok, this has never happened to me, and it's kind of weird because I've never heard of this on my life, but this is basically the situation:
There's this guy in my school who is my friend (not close friend but we still talk and stuff) and today he asked me...out. I'm straight btw and I thought he was straight, but... I guess not? Anyways, can someone tell me what to do? Like I asked another friend for advice and he told me to block him off from life, and I just don't do that to people.
So yeah, any help would be much appreciated.
Tell him you're heterosexual and that, even though you still know he's interested in you, you'll still treat him as a friend and that he should try with another man, but carefully. He had luck he was interested in a friend (you), if the case would've been a stranger, he would've been mocked. Homosexuality, even though it's slowing being inserted into today's society, is still somewhat rejected.
I'm really comfortable in my sexuality, so I'd tell him I'm flattered that he likes me/wants to go out with me, but I'm straight and just want to be friends. Short and sweet. Not too much, just straight and to the point. But if another guy wanted to ask me out, honestly, it would be kind of flattering even if I wasn't interested. Nothing wrong with it, it just is what it is.
I'm glad you were nice about it and didn't take your friend's initial advice, because i'd imagine that this type of situation could be just as uncomfortable/embarrassing for him as it might have been for you, possibly moreso, and no one likes to be rejected too harshly. :[
yay for nice people
you also might want to take him to get his gaydar repaired.
You did the right thing, personally i would have told him im straight and would like just to be mates. Even though im a girl and bi so i dont really know how him asking me out is him being gay or me being straight but if i was a boy thats what id do.
