Our expert says:
given that you have never met, it may be that you are in love with the idea of a person rather than the reality, as until you meet him you won't know if you really like him. Having said this it is very hurtful to have your hopes built up in this way, only to be dashed. It is unfair of him to not give you an explanation.
Many gay people do find it more difficult to meet people because of some of the prejudices in society. But please don't let this put you off. Wait and see what happens and when you get to varsity or even in your home town you may find the right person for you.
Just remember you have the right to be happy, and if that guy can't make you happy then another one will sometime in the future.
