'My gay pal is hitting on my boyfriend...'
Dear Diana, I'm 27 and my best friend happens to be gay. I know him since our college days.
He is a super guy and we hang out quite often. I am in a relationship too with a guy who I met at a concert. We are going steady for five months now. It’s obvious that we are serious about each other. However, my gay friend has taken an inappropriate interest in my lover and keeps flirting with him. The worst part is my boyfriend is oblivious of his intentions. I don’t know how to confront them.
Your guy has no clue to what is happening, so it is best to leave him out. Nor has he responded to your gay pal’s advances because he might be unaware of his intentions. It is between you and your gay buddy. You need to talk things out with him. Your boyfriend is being pally with him as he is your buddy, but if you think he is posing to be a problem in your love life, you certainly need to tell him to lay off. You are his buddy and you have every right to tell him.
Diana will solve it!
