If you're trying to figure out if your boyfriend, friend, or acquaintance is batting for the other team on the sly, it can be difficult to figure out. Most of the "obvious signs," like wearing pink or loving fashion and musicals, are no more than stereotypes that really don't tell you much at all.
If you really want to know if he's secretly gay, the signals will be a little more subtle. Take this line for example:
"I really do like you, but I respect you too much to touch you."
He may like you (as a friend), and he may genuinely respect you; but that's not why he's not touching you. It's that he isn't remotely interested in the objects that you have available for touching.
