Being openly gay and making straight male friends is tough.

Let's keep it 100, most guys are going to keep you at arms length once they figure out your sexuality. Now I'm not super feminine, but after talking to me, you can kinda feel me out and get the idea that I'm gay. I really felt like I was developing a friendship with this guy in Bio lab, but lately, I'm noticing that he keeps his distance. For instance, I'll try and engage him and ask him about the lecture and he responds with short sentences. When I first met him, he was so chit-chatty, but now I'm lucky if he gives me a head nod. I have a theory that once he added me on Facebook, he saw the "interested in men" on my page, so it probably freaked him out. I just wish guys could let their guard down around gay dudes, because most of us are chill and have good intentions, but society tells guys my age to avoid the "gay". I hate having to settle being friends with just females. Most chicks think that because you're gay, you wanna hear about all their "girly" problems, but that shit is boring to me. Before I came out, I used to have a gang of straight guy friends, but now that I'm out, it's weird seeing how my social circle was forced to change.
