I have a friend--let's call him Pedro--about whom I've had a hunch that he was gay. He sometimes gives off the "gay vibe." He'll say things I used to say when I was trying to convince myself that I wasn't gay. I could have sworn he almost went in for a kiss one day, several years ago. Etc.
After a chat with another one of my friends (who is gay) who was having a rather tough time, Pedro's [real] name kept popping into my head.
So, I did something I wouldn't normally do.
I asked Pedro if he was attracted to guys.
His response: "I can honestly say I have never been attracted to other men."
My hunch was (thankfully--I really wouldn't wish this on anyone, especially another Mormon) wrong.
Now, the reason why I mention this at all: I was quite proud of myself for actually being bold enough to ask.
Normally I like to say nothing, see how things play out without my interference.
I'm thinking this may be progress in my life?
Heck, maybe next I'll interfere with life and actually ask someone out myself.
