Broken gaydars and flirting fails

My gaydar is severely broken or at least so miscalibrated to be totally useless. My friend Karen told me that the really hot guy in our pottery class not only bats for my team, but was even flirting with me while glazing last semester.

This is entirely unacceptable for a single gay man and I’m not sure how to fix it. This is not the first time someone has pointed out that I was being flirted with and didn’t know it. I’m not totally socially inept, but apparently I’m inept enough.

This will never do.

  1. I have the exact same problem. The only solution I have found is to return your Gaydar for a warranty repair.. Sadly it only comes with a fifteen year warranty and I figured out at about age seventeen that mine was defective.

    Slightly more serious, what about a first person set of videos/video game for training this?

    Even more serious, just an in person class for training on flirting?
