How Can a Gay Teen Know If He’s Ready to Kiss?

On attraction, consent, and knowing your body

Dear Aunty Jimothy,

I’m a 16 y/o gay guy in high school. I’ve seen you answer questions from LGBT teenagers, so I hope you will answer mine. I only know one other gay guy at school. Besides my cousin, he’s the only gay person I’ve ever met. Thing is, he’s been asking me out for weeks
