Try be honest about your orientation. He should understand the importance of one's orienation since he's a homosexual. Try not to deal this matter with violence or try not to get many people involved. It's a delicate matter which only few people will understand.Just be frank to him because you don't want to do something which you're just not it to because of your friend. This can have a huge impact on your life if both of you don't deal with this with utmost care. *p*

This is tough because you say that he is your friend, which implies that you don't want to ruin the friendship. This is going to be a difficult conversation, but go ahead and be honest with him. Tell him that you are not gay, and are not attracted to men, but you still want to be friends. He won't be hurt, and if he is then he wasn't a very good friend to begin with. *p*

True. However, since he is a close friend, he already knows that I am straight. I guess, i just have to be bluntly honest. Hope that the friendship remains:(*p*
