Is eating chocolate when depressed a sign that you may be gay?

  • No. While some people may associate it with femininity, it has nothing to do with being gay. Many straight men eat chocolate, and many straight men eat when they are depressed. Based on statistics the group of people who eat the largest amount of chocolate are teenage boys, and young men.
  • No, eating chocolate does not mean you are gay and a large percentage of males and females enjoy chocolate (related to comfort food.) From scientific studies chocolate can affect levels of brain chemicals called endocannabinoids that are related to THC, the active ingredient in marijuana. These endocannabinoids have a calming effect on brain functions in many ways. While scientists are not 100% sure of effects of chocolate on the brain chocolate does make people feel better.

If you smear chocolate all over your same-sex partner, and lick it off, only then is it a sign that you're gay.

The rest of the time it simply means that chocolate is one of your comfort foods.


No, eating chocolate when you are depressed doesn't mean you are gay, but chocolate boosts brain power and lifts depression. Dark chocolate is full of antioxidants and anti-coagulants which make the blood flow more freely and help fight conditions that can lead to heart problems.
