There's a gay guy in my school and I'm interested in being friends with him. I don't find him that attractive except for his smile; I'd rather be friends!
So I want to make friends with him and be able to talk with him about the hardships about liking other dudes and having to gain acceptance for it, plus I want to get more friends who are less homophobic and push away some of the homophobic ones. (This of course will lead to healthier relationships for me.)
But there's a problem with this guy because he doesn't seem to like me. He only accepts as friends a small amount of guys, and they are his fellow cheerleaders and a few others. He doesn't seem to like me too much but maybe that could change. I'm sure we can be friends.
I'm friends with some of his friends which might help.
