Another list, but not one that makes sense.

1) The weirdest thing in the world is coming out to someone at the same time as they come out to you. I'm used to being on one side of the outing, but I've never been on the other.

2) Recently, I've had the strange urge to be somewhat promiscuous. I've never had this urge before: I'm kind of in love with the idea of monogamy.

5) I used to avoid relationships because the guys I liked where huge douche-bags. This is starting to change.

3) The only time I'm really proud to be gay is when I learn about all the horrible and disgusting things that straight men have done.

4) If a straight male athlete makes an idiotic gay joke, it's probably because he's used to a social environment where those jokes are considered funny. It doesn't mean he's an asshole.

1- Of course, I already kinda knew he was gay. I just didn't know how to talk to him about it.

2- Why not do what other people do, and just be slutty until you meet someone you like? I don't have the answer for that.

5- It's really only true of one guy. He is friendly and adorable and I have no idea how to act around him.

3- Honestly, I think castration is a fair punishment for a lot of people.

4- It does suggest that he's ignorant, but very few people are willfully ignorant. What I'm getting at is it's probably not his fault he says stupid shit.

Well...

2) Promiscuity doesn't negate a desire for monogamy.
5) Depends. Are you finding better guys, or dating douchebags?

Yeah, uh

2) Kinda mentioned that under "2-".

5) I'm kinda finding better guys, but I'm not really dating anyone.

Are the references in 1 & 5...

...both to same individual: "friendly" and "adorable"?

As for how to act around "5"... ask him to go with you for coffee (or whatever), ask him if he'd like to join you for a public lecture at your school... a musical event, a movie. Find out what he enjoys!

Anything to "break the ice!"

I suspect that he may already have a similar opinion of you! :)

Good luck!

Significance of your numbering order: "5" in the middle?

If only,

No, the guys mentioned in 1 & 5 are sadly not the same person. I don't even know what the 5's deal is. I'm almost positive he's gay, but I don't know if he's out to anyone. He's definitely not out to everyone. It sucks. But I do know what he likes; we are friends of friends, not quite friends. I need to creep into the friendzone.

Not really; I mistyped "3" as "5" and kinda just ran with it.
