10 Struggles Of Closeted Gay Men

Dear Gay Men,

At one point or another, we’ve all been in the closet before. So regardless of whether you’re currently openly gay or still stuck in the closet, here are 10 common struggles of closeted gay men that you’ll probably be able to relate to:

1. You’re perpetually paranoid about people discovering your ‘deep dark secret’.

Like for example, my heart always skips a beat whenever my parents tell me they have something to say to me.

2. You’re more likely to fall for a straight dude since your social circle is mostly straight.
