As a warning, this is going to take a lot for me to explain my situation and actually ask my question so bear with me.
I am a Freshman in a small private university. I'm Bisexual but I lean more towards guys than I do girls. I've had a handful of girlfriends before but none of them ever grew serious and the longest relationship lasted only a few months. I'm closeted with my family but I am for the most part out at college.
I came to college thinking this would be the time that I would do what I wanted and would finally have the chance to be myself without having to keep up appearances. Since going to school I've tried to start relationships with different people but none have worked out (2 guys who both turned out to just be straight and merely friendly, 1 girl who it just didn't happen with, and another girl who flirted back with me but was just leading me on).
Before I go on I want to explain my tastes. For the most part I am mostly turned on by guys and it is only a handful of cases where I begin to like girls. I am really turned off by guys who act feminine or are the stereotypical "queer" guy with the high whiney voice. I don't have a particular problem with guys who act that way but I just don't find them attractive whatsoever. On the other hand I am not into the alpha male jock types either but I want a guy who acts like a guy if anything somewhat on the nerdy side. I don't act feminine other than the fact that I don't like sports whatsoever. From having a conversation with me you can't tell that I am gay.
The point that I am trying to make is that I don't get hit on by guys because I don't act very "gay" and I am unnoticed and when I hit on a guy they are usually straight.
So there is this guy that I have seen and I have liked who is also a freshman. He hangs out with this guy who I am 10,000% sure is gay. While I worked at one of the universities haunted houses for halloween they passed by me and while I scared them the guy I like was holding onto the gay guy in a way that made me think twice about his sexuality. One of my friends said that she was certain that he was gay. Eventually one of my other friends helps get me into acquaintance terms with him, and I friend him on facebook. On his page it says that he is "in a relationship" with this girl who isn't at school with us but I don't know if it is true. He doesn't take facebook very seriously because a) he has people who aren't related to him listed as siblings b) he doesn't post very often, and c) there aren't any photos of them two exclusively together so I get the feeling it is one of those best friend joke things. I personally think that he is gay and that he isn't really in a relationship but for all I know I'm just decieving myself. The friends that I have talked to with about him aren't sure what to make of this either.
I have only been able to have some conversations with him and I flirt and he is friendly but shy. I don't talk to him much on facebook since he is rarely on and two we don't know each other that well. I am going to return to school in a week or two from break and I have bought a rainbow bracelet that I am going to start wearing to make it a little more apparent about my sexuality to everyone.
My overall questions are
a) What can I do to get his attention, is the bracelet enough? Do you guys think that he is Gay? I plan on talking with him as much as possible everytime I run into him and flirting with him. My hope is that we can become at least on good speaking terms and I can ask him out or he'll ask about my bracelet or something.
b) In case he is straight or this doesn't work out what can I do to get noticed by guys more? I am an average looking guy not extremely hot, but I am not ugly or unattractive. I've read that things like the bracelet will make me somewhat more approachable by guys. Are there other things that I can do to have guys approach me?
c) Am I doing something wrong I would enjoy hearing some constructive criticism so I can learn and maybe get better at the whole dating thing I'm not very experienced so any advice would help.
Thank you and I apologize for the long post.
