Should I Ask My Co-Worker If He Is Gay? – Daily Dilemma [POLL]
The "Daily Dilemma" on the Sean and Richie Show is featured every weekday morning at 6:40am. We and the listeners take on someone's problems and try to offer different perspectives. Now, these don't have to be huge problems- it could just be something bothering you or a friend, or it could be some little thing you and another just can't agree on. If you have a dilemma to share we'd love to hear it just e-mail us here at the show.
Here is today's daily dilemma:
A question about a co-worker of mine has been bothering me, but I am too afraid to ask him directly. Everyone who works with him believes that he is gay, although he is not out openly. He actually never talks about anything related to relationships.
The only reason I would want to ask him anything about it is out intense of curiosity, and I know it's not my call to make, but I feel like if he were honest with us, everyone would be more comfortable around him, as it is right now people avoid him because we are afraid to say something that would tip him off about our suspicions.
It wouldn’t change how I see him, I just want to get to know him better and I am almost 90% certain that he is. I haven’t mentioned anything yet because I don’t want to cross a line or embarrass him.
How should I handle this situation?
