It’s a sneaking suspicion you may have had for a while, triggered by the way your guy acts, how he dresses, maybe even the TV he watches. Who knows exactly where this question came from, but it is stubbornly stuck in the spin cycle of your mind and really putting a wedge between you and domestic bliss: Could your boyfriend or husband be gay?
There are those small details that could mean something or could mean nothing. Or maybe you are imagining these hints or being influenced by the opinions of your friends. It’s difficult to know which habits can be indicators that the man in your life may be gay.
Rick Clemons, life coach and host of the radio show The Coming Out Lounge, suggests some possible red flags when it comes to deciphering if the man in your life may be gay. Most of these indicators have to do with the opinions and lifestyle choices your guy makes. Does anything seem different than when you two first became a couple?

5 Signs He Might Be Gay
1. Does your guy seem homophobic?
“As the media has shown us over and over again, many a man ‘comes out’ by being forced out due to their blatant disdain towards homosexuality. While not a 100% guarantee that your man is playing for the other side, it does make you wonder, ‘Is he really that insecure or is it a cover up?’”
2. Overly evasive or secretive?“Whether it’s protecting their emails and texts, or always changing the subject about where they’ve been, if your man is uber sensitive in these arenas, then there’s a good chance that one of two things is up. 1) He’s having an affair or 2) He’s gay and hiding his truth. No matter what the reality is, something’s come up and it’s getting in the way of your relationship, so it’s time to get to the bottom of it – for the good of you both!”
