Dear Gay Agony Uncle
I really like a guy I keep spotting each weekend at the supermarket, he obviously works out and is on a local football team. How would you suggest I approach him? I’m not even sure if he’s gay or not. He did smile at me last week, but he could just have been friendly.
Speak to him next time you see him, ask him where he plays football. Once you build up a dialogue with him, you will be able to see how responsive he is.
Small talk has diminished over the years, with the explosion of social media and dating Apps.
Find a couple of conversational openers that you feel comfortable with and go with those. The weather is always a good one to start with, or a compliment on an item of clothing someone is wearing, be cautious of discussing anything overtly sexual.
