    Well im just interested to know how other people did it or how others plan to do it.

    So i'll start

    I'm only recently about 2 months out of the closet as bi now. For me it wasn't even really a huge *Gather all your freinds and tell them you like dick* Nah it was more of a slow ease it in. Strategically planned.

    First thing i did was begin to dress slightly more metro-sexual. (You know tight shirts, tight jeans, short shorts n all) To draw some attention and doubt about my hetero-ness. I then started to make jokes amongst freinds saying things like (Oh yeah hes hot i'd fuck him) Which they ignored for the most part.

    I'm sure we all have a certain type of freind who is a loud mouth and cant keep anything to their self so he was the first one i called aside and told. i made him promise to keep it secret knowing fully well he would blab to everyone slowly which was of course my intention >icon_biggrin.gif. needless to say the plan worked and as time went on 1 by one my freinds started asking me......(so dude...your into guys too?) After awhile more and more people started knowing slowly so it wasnt really a big shock for any1 because it was very gradual. Now most people know and most dont really even care cuz im a cool person anyway and the ones who did care i realized i should have cut them out of my life a long time ago ;)

    Trust me, word of advice to anyone else if you are ever nervous of coming out do it this way. Dont post some stupid facebook status saying IM GAY AND PROUD. cuz u will get stomped on.

    I've always been comfortable with my baggy jeans and plain tees, so I didn't feel the need to change the way I looked. Two weeks ago I told a girl I like guys, she was thrilled because "oh em gee we can check out guys together now!". The day before, I told a guy, he refused to believe me. He isnt homophobic, he just never thought I'd be into guys. Spent half a day trying to convince the idiot. Today I told the third person, another girl, and she's totally cool too.
    Each time I didnt beat around the bush or anyhing, I just came out with a sentence or two. And I told each person only after I was comfortable about them knowing.
