I’m not out completely, only to my bosses and some friends I’ve made. Everyone else can think what they want. When someone seems to really want to be my friend, and the feeling is mutual, I tell them about myself and my BF. That’s after really getting to know them fairly well. So far that’s been working out great. Other people; I just say "no" if someone asks if I’m married or have a girlfriend and leave it at that when it’s someone I don’t know well enough or care for.
sometimes. i usually see if the people at work are prejudiced or any sort of that feeling. if not and i like them i slip in a casual comment during convo
I used to do that but quickly learned again that I’m not a mind reader. People will surprise you. I’ve made some great friends out of people I thought that it wouldn’t go well if I said something. I told them anyhow because they seemed to really like me and we’d talk a lot, but also because I don’t like wasting my time talking to people too much if they’re not going to be cool with me being gay, and don’t want to waste their time either. First I have to care enough to tell them. If it doesn't go well, that's great too, now I'm not wasting my time talking to an asshole. Surprisingly tho, that hasn't happened yet and I've told 9 people.
