I went out for drinks last week with a partner I work with a lot. He’s gay, I’m not. We both got pretty drunk, and he sort of hit on me. I think. Nothing too blatant, but he was definitely a little flirty. Asked if I’d ever been with a man, I said no. He then asked if I’d ever thought about it. I said no. Anyway, my point is, it got a little weird. And I’m not homophobic. We work together a lot—and I like this guy—but I’m not into the whole “gay exploration” thing. I think he was probably just drunk. Should I say something to him? Tell him he crossed the line? Make a joke about what happened? He seems a little awkward around me lately.
I’d let it go. If it happens again, have a talk. If not, move on. No need to turn an awkward, drunken moment into an even more awkward, sober moment. If he’s a good guy, he’ll appreciate your coolness.
