“What do I say if I think my lesbian friend is flirting with me?”

“What do I say if I think my lesbian friend is flirting with me?”

There’s plenty of room for miscues and miscommunication in any relationship, and not surprisingly, this is a particular risk between gay people and straights. Is that possible in this case? What you interpret as flirty may in her mind be friendly. On the other hand, she may be infatuated with you, even though she knows you’re straight. But I don’t think there is anything that you should tell her, unless there’s something specific that she’s doing that makes you uncomfortable—too much touching, for instance. If that’s the case, just explain why that makes you uncomfortable. Otherwise, take it as a compliment!
