    I always thought she was straight. But then again that's what my family thinks about me. No one in my family knows I have a girlfriend. I plan on breaking the news soon though...


    I would like to approach my cousin about it... maybe even help her out a bit? BUT it might just be one of those silly teenage things "let's make all our friends on facebook think we're lesbians for fun!" I also don't want to scare her off. Any suggestions on how I could approach this? Should I just tell her I have a girlfriend... I'm kind worried about her response to that *if* she is straight.

    Facebook offers frustratingly ambiguous ways to tag yourself as gay or straight. Does it say interested in only women? And what is in the "looking for" field?

    I recently discovered that a friend I had from high school also has "men" (along with women) listed under his "interested in" section. It interests me, but I'm not going to do anything about it.

    It says interested in: women, only!


    Well I really need to tell my family about my girlfriend, that will end up getting back to her. Eeek it's all so scary.

    When my cousin found out about my sexuality through myspace (which lets you express it far more definitively), she very simply...said that she saw it and wanted me to know that she thought it was great.

    You could always approach the subject very gingerly, while still being direct. Just say that you noticed her facebook profile, and you were wondering if she's met any nice girls lately. You can also let her know that you don't mean to make any false assumptions, and that you're not trying to invade her privacy.

    does it say she's married to anyone or anything like that? usually that's a sign that it's a joke

    Are you a Mod on IGN?

    If so, fancy seeing you here. Can't wait to be unbanned from that place.

    ^ Oh, and I only ask because there's a gay mod there that goes by 'zortnac'...

    Yeah, that's me, but after 4 years I got tired of it and gave up the title about a year ago. Modding sucks, especially when you don't agree with the rules you volunteered to enforce.

    If you see "zortnac" anywhere, it's me. ;)

    It's probably a joke, a ton of my friends are "interested in women" or in gay marriages on facebook, I'd just ask her.

    Just ask her if it's serious and only bring your sexuality into it if she is.
