....but realistically, the dude was a young, good-looking guy even as a wimp, and he actually had a double date before the whole Super Soldier Serum thing; and then he was surrounded by a bevy of beautiful USO dancers for a good part of the early war; and after he bulked up with Super Steroids, Private Lorraine probably represented one of a ton of women who willingly threw themselves at Cap.

If he remained "chaste" through all that, with or without Peggy Carter, let's face it: he had to be in the closet. There's just no way a red-blooded all-American boy from Brooklyn would've passed on at least one of those many opportunities.
Well whether it's believable or not, the movie clearly implied that was indeed the case, from the very thinly veiled "waiting for the right partner" metaphor that they kept running to the very end, to Steve being horrified at the very thought that Peggy might suspect him of having any kind of relations with another girl (when Natalie Dormer stole a kiss). In fact, I think his incredibly uncomfortable behavior during that whole scene, even before Peggy walked, in is evidence enough that Steve was still very much in virgin territory at that point. They wanted us to believe that Steve had eyes for no girl other than Peggy, regardless of how unrealistic that may seem.
