Have you been wondering, “How can I tell if my boyfriend is gay?” While sexual orientation is a highly personal and sensitive issue that you won’t know for sure until your partner reveals it to you, there are some possible indicators you should be on the lookout for. These include:
Your BF Spends A Lot of Time With Male Friends
If your guy’s friends are all guys, and he seems especially close to the openly gay ones while spending less time with the closed-minded straight boys, that may be a sign he’s into men. Likewise, if he’s always looking for the gay porn version of whatever movie he’s watching, that could be a hint that he prefers men to women.
His eyes flutter when he watches men on TV. It’s possible that his sexual preference isn’t a big deal to him, and he just enjoys the show, but it could also be an indication that he likes to watch or gaze at men in a more romantic way.
He keeps gay dating apps such as Jackd, Grindr, and Scruff on his phone. Having these apps is an obvious indicator that he’s into other men, and in some cases even bisexual.
He shows a lot of non-verbal affection with his male friends, such as lingering gazes and man-to-man hugs. While it’s not a huge deal if he does this occasionally, if it happens frequently and is more than just a flirtation, that’s a big red flag.
