the effect that one feels as a member of the gay community when surrounded by only straight people. One tends to fixate on the one or two people they know to be of the same orientation as them and fall into a false 'like' or 'love'. This however, can easily be remedied by coming into contact with other queers.

This effect is named for the shipping name 'Klaine' on Glee, where Kurt falls in love with Blaine and deems him his 'true' love simply because it is the most realistic, knowing no other gay people.
Kurt: I'm in love with Blaine. He's so pretty.
Mercedes: No you're not. You just have the Klaine effect. We need to get you to a gay bar to meet some other gays.
