Yup. Although the same can be said about all the characters:
Misato: Tried to be a Mother-figure to Shinji, but developed some feelings for him (in terms of what type of feelings, Misato probably doesn't even know exactly). Also, she turned to Shinji for comfort=sex (in her view) after Kaji died.
Asuka: Lusts after Kaji and wants to prove she's an adult by having sex.
Ritsuko: Has the hots for Gendou even though he's just using her for sex/her intelligence. Did the same to her Mother.
Maya: Has internalized homophobia.
Gendou: Obsessed with Yui to the point of screwing all of humanity (though at least not as bad as what SEELE planned???) just to be with her again.
Fuytsuki: Has an Unrequited Love with his favorite student, who was married to his Boss.
Shinji: Simply a fuck-up. 'Nuff said.
I could go on, but I think you get the point.
the paring I like best is K/S...despite being a straight man.
There's nothing wrong with liking a certain pairing regardless of whether you're straight, gay or bi. ;)
