In some cases I can not tell if someone is GAY. Though in many cases I can someone is gay just by looking at them and observing his eyes, body language and general manner.

This is a common statement by many people I know when describing Gay people. I have to agree. Many Gay people are able to hide to the world that they are Gay. (Of course they should not have to, but that is a different matter) BUT I believe many GAY Men send off a message that they are gay and many Homosexual people do look and act GAY. What is that message?

It is kind of hard to pinpoint exactly what it is, but I can usually tell too. Sometimes it's very overt but a lot of times it's very subtle.

"That man looked GAY", my friend said (how could he tell?)
Was the man that you were looking at named Marvin? If so, he may have been a ghost.

Sometimes I can tell, and sometimes I can't. I am better at identifying gay men than gay women.

If he's well dressed, appears educated, and is not wearing a wedding band, I automatically think he must be gay unless something proves he's not.

I think some gay people are just more flamin' than others. My gay friends and I use "flamin' gay" a lot so I hope that is not offensive. If it is, PM me so I know! There are straight men who may be perceived as gay b'c they dress well, care about how the look, get their nails done, have nice hair etc. but they are referred to as metrosexuals and sometimes can be mistaken for gays. I think there are a lot of standard mannerisms that gays have but not all gays have them. I don't think they are "hiding" who they are; I just think there are manly gay men, too. Just my 2 cents!

From what I've heard, you just have to have good gaydar...some have it, some don't. I'm on the fence about the whole thing. But I do think gay guys make the best friends for a woman.

What about guys like me who used to be gay, but are now straight and married? Do we still look gay?
