There is a thread here about straight men being hit on by gay men and their thoughts/feelings about it, so this is basically the oppposite. What are your experiences, thoughts etc. as a gay man when a woman shows interest in you? My reaction to interest by women depends on their age. If its an older woman, I feel flattered and appreciate the compliment. Older women 60 and up tend to make direct compliments to me. But I noticed if its someone younger than me, especially a teenaged girl or in her 20's, I feel very embarassed. Not sure why. I can usually tell if a younger girl likes me b/c they will give a long gaze directly in the eyes and not look away, sometimes with a coy smile.This happens on the street a lot or in a mall. That really embarasses me and makes me uncomfortable, but I feel flattered afterwards. Also, there have been girls that have admitted they liked me AFTER finding out that I'm gay which is weird for me. I'm masculine enough that most people don't know that I'm gay unless it comes up in conversation. What are your thoughts/experiences?
