The signs that your boyfriend is gay

Gaydar. It's something every gay man is born with, but at the same time it's very difficult to quantify exactly what it is and how it works.



How come two gay men can spot each other at 50 paces, even if both are wearing grey jumpers and black jeans, and when good fashion sense is not in the mix?

Well there are certain markers that always give the gay away, to my mind anyway, and I'm here to share:

1 He window shops

Straight guys do not linger looking at clothes in the window of Arnotts.

Once upon a time, cruising was called 'window shopping'.

A guy would browse at a shop-front, another guy would stand next to him and a love story might begin.

2 He does the five-second check 'n' turn.

He walks past you, your eyes meet, and on the count of five you both turn to check each other out again.

3 He moves to the beat

Gay guys love their music in a way that's deeply connected. If you see another guy listening to his iPod and walking to the beat, you might be in with a chance.

4 He's at the Madonna concert

Face it. Next July the Aviva stadium will see more gay action than Brokeback Mountain.

5 He doesn't have his hand down the front of his tracksuit . . .

This one's a no-brainer.
