For a long time before I met my boyfriend, I too had a secret crush on a straight man. I never acted on my emotions or attempted to persuade him to like me in the same way that I felt about him. But he must have suspected, right? After all he kissed me! Granted we had been friends for a year already, and were both at a party, he was drunk, and we were dared to kiss in a friendly game of spin the bottle. But that was just the first time. His initial peck on the lips kiss did not get the reaction from the crowd that either of us were hoping for, and like in theatre, sometimes it’s best to just go for it. So, I kissed him back. A more drawn out kiss on the lips. Our score was settled.
