It's easy to see why the ladies love Anderson Cooper. He is genuinely nice and has a great sense of humor, not to mention awesome listening skills. So I am not surprised that, while openly gay now, he had his share of female admirers before he came out. "The few times when I would go on a date with a girl -- like when I was 12 -- there was a lot of sharing and a lot of talking, and a lot of asking how I am," he said on his daytime talk show. "They thought we were dating ... and I was sort of hoping to meet their brothers."
That scenario isn't so uncommon. I have a college friend that dated a guy who came out a few years after they split. While we were all dropped-jawed, she wasn't shocked at all. She didn't want to admit it to herself at the time, but the writing was always on the wall. Here, she says, are the 5 signs he would rather date your brother.
Of course these rules are not absolute. I am sure there are plenty of straight guys who are open-minded enough to do everything on this list. But if you've ever wondered if your man was gay, don't ignore your inner voice. You just might be right.
Have you ever dated someone you knew was gay?
