    Not out at all
    I've only told one person. They nicely said "I try not to to assume anything with anyone." A few weeks later I said "You knew I was right?" She said "Oh of course I knew!"

    While, I've never actually told my family, my younger brother definitely suspects/knows that I am gay. He's seen that I have a pink MP3 player and pink umbrella. When he asked I told him that the MP3 player was the only color the store had in stock of that brand (which is true, but I did really want a pink one), and the umbrella is because I am always losing/leaving behind dark colored umbrellas, and pink is easier to see (also true, but not as much of the reason why I got a pink one).

    Well... it's never happened to me. I have received the shocked, deer-in-the-headlights look every time I came out to someone. I'm used to it now and sometimes it's actually humorous to know that they are gong to be surprised and startled. Of course, I didn't start coming out until I was 64! So I guess it makes sense that people who have known me for a long time would be surprised

    When I told my mother I was gay she was shocked and I had been hinting for years. When I told my sister she said 'tell me something I didn't know'. It was kind of obvious I was 19 never had a boyfriend and wasn't going crazy over whatever popular male celebrity was considered hot then. I also don't own a dress or skirt and don't wear any makeup. My sister saw those as stereotypical lesbian traits.
