    lately I've seemed to be on point with people in the closet even when they don't make it obvious. it's weird

    Lucky you. My gaydar's so bad that even I didn't trigger it

    At the moment the hardest thing for me is not knowing if someone is into girls. I don't want to fall for someone when odds are they're going to be straight

    it's strange but with some people when I first meet them they have a certain energy. once I know more about them I realise they do have interest for the same sex. like I can feel their gay vibes

    Now that makes sense to me. I think you are maybe someone comfortable in the presence of others. You can then use all of your six senses better. Yes, six.

    Same! I'm really good at telling if a guy is gay even if there's no "obvious" traits. My mom has a really good gaydar too so I think I inherited that from her. :slight_smile:

    I wish I had good gaydar (or would it be bi-dar for me?). I can't tell at all unless someone specifically tells me.

    I met my current girlfriend randomly at a cocktail party. There were no dead giveaways but just from looking at her I knew she was gay and just had to talk to her.
    We celebrated our 6th month together last week :grin:

    I don't think I really have one. There have been a few times I've looked at a person, and something made me think they might be trans.

    Not intentionally. A lot of my female crushes ended up being bisexual or lesbian, and many "guys" I found hot turned out being transfeminine.

    At some point in childhood, I "felt" like I had a great gaydar. I had my own "foolproof" system. It was only for gay men. I was a silly kid. I believe it was either 3 or 5 steps. I was probably about 10 or 11. One of the steps was in posture.

    I can sometimes "tell", take this with a grain of salt because I'm not speaking or getting to know these men, in the energy they give off. This could also be known as a vibe. Other than that, I have to go by stereotypes, which truthfully only applies if the man is flamboyant.

    I'm even worse with the women. I have to go by stereotypes: butch and fat, butch and slim, & soft butch. There's also a kind of person that I've been interpreting as trans that I now realize may have been gay ie lesbians. I'm also aware of the nail test. I believe it's that if a woman is gay (or bi) the nails of her first two fingers will always be shorter than the rest.

    Same here. I've gotten it more with FtMs than MtFs. These are men that pass extremely well, but for some reason I still get a vibe.
