A term that has gained currency in New Zealand and Australian slang to describe a male who self-identifies as "bisexual" but is in reality using this label to avoid admitting that he is in fact completely gay.

Such a person will often be in denial as to their true sexual orientation and may attempt to maintain relations with females while soliciting covert same-sex relations, often anonymous in nature or downlow.

A man in the gay waiting room will likely leave emotional collateral damage on both sides of the gender divide in his bid to pass himself off as bisexual.
See that guy over there at the bar, he claims he's bisexual but you can so tell that he's just in the gay waiting room.
