A heterosexual man’s reaction to being hit on by a gay man is being shared left and right on social media for its graciousness (and the fact that he’s sincerely flattered.)
In short, the straight man was sitting alone at a wedding reception when, at the end of the night, a man came up to him and said, “I just wanted to let you know that I have noticed you all night. I wanted to leave this with you before I left.”
He left his number and walked off.

I was at my cousins wedding reception and had just sat down from dancing. It was nearing the end of the night at this time so I was pretty secluded from everyone. A man walked up to me who I hadn’t seen before and nervously said “what’s your name?” I replied, “Chad, what’s yours?” He said “Shane, I just wanted to let you know that I have noticed you all night. I wanted to leave this with you before I left.” He handed me a piece of paper and quickly walked out. It was his number. Without knowing if I was straight or not he had built up the guts to put himself out there. I thought it was extremely brave and I know it’s something I wouldn’t be able to do. I’m sharing this to remind everyone to live their lives without regrets. Almost all of my regrets come from the things I didn’t do, not the things I did. I will be living my life more like this man and I suggest you all do as well. Good night.
