Some of the threads here about straight /gay/Bi Guys got me to thinking about the straight guy who i used to work with, Chris knew i was gay although it was not common knowledge at the time at work. He used to ask the the other staff when i was due in, if i was late, where was i etc, he used to ring me if i was off work to tell me he was missing me we had such a great time, he used to cuddle me and hug me, say nicwe things etc and we just got so close. I sent him a valentine card anonymously !!!!!, I Loved Him........... Anyway 2 years later i could no longer contain my feelings, i did not want him to touch me, pick me up and hug me no longer, i was getting confused, he was married with four kids, a strong catholic man and i was struggling being with him. I told him i was in love with him, my heart was beating fast etc then the quiet period, he looked at me, i expected a thump or whatever, he had tears in his eyes, he hugged me close, kissed me not in a sexual way and told me he was happy i had told him, he asked if i had sent him the valentine card i said yes, he said he had kept it as he thought it was me. I left him then, he hugged me again and said to me "if everything was coasha, he would be the happiest man in the world. (still don't understand that comment ). He phoned me later to see if i was okay and told me although he was straight and never thought about men, he could not understand why he felt like he did about me. Anyway we did not pursue anything, but it was nice to have that understanding of how straight and gay men can have that relationship without sex and hurting anyone else. sorry for the long intro, just wondered if any other guys straight or gay have had those feelings and told the other person concened ?.
