Discreet is a term used by gay men in online profiles, usually along with the phrase "can't host
." These words can often be used interchangeably, but using them together is a definite sign of an insecure douche. Discreet and "can't host
" usually mean one of the following:
a). My boyfriend doesn't know I am cheating on him.
b). My girlfriend/wife doesn't know I like to have sex with men.
c). I'm embarrassed of who I am, and I don't want my neighbors to find out I'm gay.

"We can meet for sex, but you have to be discreet. If you see me in public, walk on the other side of the street."
"I'm a very private person, so when we meet for sex we have to be discreet. You'll have to sneak in through the basement at 4PM and leave before 5PM."
"No strings attached" in reference to sex. When gay men use this term, it means that they are using their sexuality as an excuse to avoid commitment or cheat on their partner. Generally, gay men that use this term begin using it at an early age and will continue to use it until they are in their 40s and finally realize that they are now too old to just hook up, but they are totally alone because gay men their age are either in real relationships or only interested in young men that use this term. They come to regret their years of NSA lifestyle and wish that they had focused on more important things than sex.
