Under all the impressions, he is just an incredibly nice guy. The one you suspect to be gay, he just hasn't found out himself yet. He surprised the rest of the class by announcing he has a girlfriend. She is from Chinese origin and lives on the other side of the country. Ever since the girls try to get him to talk. All kinds of embarrassing questions are fired at him. He only answers some of them. It is still easy to wind him up, though it is nearly impossible to get him angry. Once I managed to do so, he felt that he was being punished for something he couldn't be blamed for. I agreed, but couldn't possibly admit, as the others who thoroughly deserved the punishment would have rioted.
He even managed to fail some tests recently. According to some colleagues, this might have something to do with his girlfriend. He just thinks he underestimated and misunderstood some things. He becomes seems more human since. He'll be top of the class come the end of the term. However, I am afraid for him after that. He doesn't seem the kind of person to easily survive outside the safe boundaries of school. Good grades and a nice personality might not be enough in the harsh world we live in. I hope I'm wrong.
