    I was wondering if any of you guys ever had the feeling that someone you knew was gay (like maybe a friend or public person such as Anderson Cooper or Tom Daley) and then actually came out a couple of years later?

    I'm quite sure Shawn Mendes will come out one day.

    Yep, one of my friends who I thought was gay recently came out. However, there are a fair share of people who I thought were gay and weren't. I feel like it's perfectly normal to receive gay vibes from someone as long as you don't over obsess over it. It's their life and you should always be aware that you could be wrong.

    I had a friend in college who came out after we graduated, and honestly, I was shocked, as I always felthe was straight. Yet, I had always secretly hoped he wasn't straight, because I had a thing for him at the time (even though I also thought I was straight at the time).

    I also think Shawn Mendes will come out one day too.

    It was funny, the other day, I saw a picture of Kevin McHale from Glee, and got a vibe from him. Then I Googled him and found out that he recently came out in April. I was sitting there like "I knew it!"

    I think I am that person for other people. If they haven't caught on already, they must be blind and deaf.

    This is me, today my friend came out for the first time, but I've been sure he was either gay or ace for at least two years. Another point for my gaydar. (level up :wink:

    I'm not openly gay but I often leave LOTS of clues everywhere, including all my social networks. It's impressive none of my friends have noticed (that I know, at least).

    I think Shawn Mendes is at least a little exploratory of his sexuality.

    I haven’t had the coming out part happen yet, but it’s possible (although I think that’s mainly just me occasionally hoping that there’s a possibility that the girls I like will like me back, haha). I do think, however, that I’ve dropped enough hints to be the friend that a couple people got gay vibes from. :wink:

    I agree with @Hemospectrum that it’s fine as long as you don’t obsess over it or make anyone feel pressured.
