Chigozie (names changed), a student in his early 20s, told NoStringsNG that his troubles began when Obi, a coursemate, started making advances at him. Chigozie turned him down, but it became obvious that Obi was still interested in him. “While in school, he would make advances at me, telling me he likes me and all, and I think at one time, he tried to kiss me at a quiet corner, but I refused,” Chigozie told NoStringsNG, which he contacted for advice. Chigozie said that last week, after they exchanged phone numbers, they started chatting on Facebook, and Obi kept insisting that they meet up at his place. Chigozie kept turning Obi down as he was still unsure if Obi was gay. “After we exchanged phone numbers, he kept messaging me on Facebook about how he needed my company, and how I was not making him happy by not coming over to see him. I did not want to see him because I was not sure if he was gay or not, but I later considered seeing him,” Chigozie said.
