What are oyu do if your best friend told you that he's gay ? I don't judged them but I think it's against human mature. I really don't know what I can do in this situation. You ? Are you know what you can say to his ?

I would usually stick to being their friend as how we were before he found out or before he told me. Unless of course you're no longer comfortable. I had a friend who did confess he was gay, but I already knew that before he knew it (or accepted) himself. We're still good friends and I don't really mind. Further, a colleague of mine who was a lawyer actually told us yesterday about one of his friends who did confess that the friend was gay. The group (his friends and him) was civil enough to be the same, but they were more sensitive about topics that are off limit. The friendship has been there for more than 10 years. So, it depends on your maturity. You just can't blame him for feeling that way. If you're really a good friend, then nothing should really change. However, if the friend confesses that he likes you more than friends, then that's the time you face your real feelings. Even in a guy-girl situation, it will always be awkward when one party declares that he/she has fallen for the other. Have a great mylot experience ahead!

That would probably be the part where the friendship would end , if my gay friend confess that they likes you are something .

I would still be their friend despite them being gay. I mean it is something that I don't agree with also, but also it is not my place to judge them in the lifestyle that they chose to live. I mean it would be their choice on whether they want to be gay or not. But I think that just because your friend told you that they were gay, doesn't mean that you should stop being their friend. Because although you disagree with it, this is a time in their life that they may also need you to be apart of their lives as well. So, be there for them and be a friend to them. Let them know that you are going to be there for them and just go from there. It is not your place to judge anyways.

I dont have any gay friend since thats not common here for people to openly admit that they are gay . I have no problem with my friend being gay , I dont mind at all . If he was a friend he will always be a friend nothing will change that . We have a local male celebrity that act gay and I love him lol he is so funny .

Well, by saying you feel it is against human nature you kind of ARE judging them. Homosexuality is really no big deal. Who someone is attracted to doesn't change who they are as a person. Either you accept them for who they are- sexuality and all- or you don't and that may ruin the friendship. That's really all you can do.

It's not my place to judge people for what they are... Some of my friends are gay & they understand I'm not & they respect that... Granted we joke around a lot but that's where it stops... People will do what they will do regardless of my opinions of them & their life style... I think it's waste of my time to preach them about my belief... If they ask me, that's one thing... But I won't impose my opinions on anyone...
