A man who mostly wears women's clothing and make-up is not even always gay. I believe something like 10% of truly effeminate men are heterosexual. Ed Wood dated women, and married two of them I believe, even though he liked to wear bras and made "Glen or Glenda."

Granted I'd think most women would find it difficult to date a guy who worries about his mascara smearing at weddings, but I guess there's all kinds.

That said a man writing poetry about making love to a man I think is usually a sign of being at least bisexual. Although in the T'ang Dynasty it was a common form for a man to write a love poem as a woman writing to a man. The men who did this were not necessarily gay. I believe the great Chinese poet Li-Bai/Li-Po did this and was, so far as we know, straight. However it's unlikely you're dating a 1200-year-old Chinese guy. And if you are tell us more

It's not exactly cold fusion.
This is exactly right. Everything else is speculation and is often wrong.

That being said I have read that the roots of shaving off body hair can in fact be traced to the gay community. They are the ones who started the trend.

Men are gay if they are exclusively attracted to other men.
Men are straight if they are exclusively attracted to women.
Men are bi-sexual if they are attracted to both men and women.

I do think they did a study once indicating gay men have some other commonalities besides sexual orientation.

The main one I remember seemed to involve how they gave directions. Like gay men were more likely to use landmarks than straight men, but not as likely to do so as women. Something like that. The other I remember I believe was was smell, but this sort-of related to sex. I believe gay men were more likely to like the smell of men's sweat than women's sweat even if they didn't actually know whose sweat was on a shirt.

So maybe if you don't want to ask directly have your boyfriend smell your brother's shirt and ask him for directions

shaving has nothing to do with being gay. But I can so understand asking that question!

Wow, way to stereotype. If a dude likes dudes then he's gay. If a dude likes to wear pink clothes, dress like a woman, do housework, talks with flimsy wrists, shaves his entire body, wears makeup, but likes woman; then he is straight.

Oh my goodness that amount of shaving is the one true sign of a man being gay. It is the universal accepted sign. I can't believe that it wasn't in your guide book

I lived in Europe for a while and the men usually did shave under their arms. It's not gay. It's "gay" cause you make it gay.
