In closing, anyone who lies about his identity is not a candidate for any romantic relationship, even if you believe that love is about accepting everything about the person.  We live in complex times, with lots of responsibilities and increasing demands and if you choose a partner that is not psychologically well, your whole life can turn upside down – and for those who tried to date a closeted guy – you know what I am talking about.  So unless he is fully “out”, keep distance and instruct him to get some help.
