Lee Gray, Karnage Kills and Rhys Hollis are the queer agony aunts you always wanted—and they never shy away from any dilemma, no matter how tricky or unusual.
This week, a gay person in a secret relationship with a closeted footballer asks: Should I wait or will he keep stringing me along?
SENT IN ANONYMOUSLY, HERE’S HIS DILEMMA:
Since the age of 16, I have been having an on/off secret relationship with a guy from school. We’re both 21 now but he has had a number of relationships with women and even has a two-year-old daughter.
He says he can’t come out as he is the captain of the local semi-pro football team and he has to have girlfriends so that people don’t suspect anything.
He says that he is trying to earn enough money so that we can move away together when he retires from football. He is expecting this to happen in the next seven to eight years.
Should I wait or will he just keep stringing me along?
