Beard: A man or woman used as a cover for a gay partner.
So you’ve been dating him for a while and every time you’re together you get the feeling he’s the one. He’s not like the other guys you’ve dated before. He’s kind and attentive, perfectly groomed and emotionally vulnerable. Simply put: He’s perfect! Everything’s fine until one day a friend casually asks, “do you think he’s gay?” Your mind races, fitting clues together like a jigsaw puzzle and you realize, “yeah, he might be.” Your world comes crashing down and you feel like the world’s biggest fool for not seeing it until now. Don’t give your heart away without knowing for sure. Here’s some sure-fire signs that your man might be using you as a beard.
