Conversation, however, is key. He and I are more like best friends. I loved this film! More Like This. He perhaps would have been a loner as a straight man as well, but something in him is not right. A young gay man in Athens, Angelo, keeps his sexual identity a secret from his family. You say that "the sexual tension" is there, but it sounds like it's only there for you.
As far as "fag hag" not being a pejorative term, I'd say that depends very much on who you are using it with, so don't be so certain of yourself.
Some but definitely not all. List Price: It's kinda like in days of yore when empresses and princesses had eunuch slaves So, you start by befriending women, you gain their trust, they open up to you and "get very connected", and then, when you feel the trust is sufficient, you try to manually "switch gears" and steer the friendship towards sexual interaction.
But he gave me attention as well, attention of a different sort, one full with tension, perhaps sexual, perhaps not.
