Describe the ballet scene from "Black Swan" as a-MAY-zing!
I managed about a dozen people at a job. I did not discuss my sexuality there but knew there was speculation.
We were on break and there had been talk about one of our co workers that was screwing another worker. They were like dogs in heat and the conversation turned to what a stud he must be. I said " We've all had him and he isn't that good". They all laughed and I think they got the drift.

[quote]Claim you're too busy to date.
Exactly. Whenever people (especially good-looking guys) say this, I immediately think "GAY!". Even if you don't have time for a proper relationship, everyone has time to go on the occasional date.
Become a vocal anti-gay televangelist.
Date glittery ballroom dancers, and have their flaming brothers hang out at your house.
Then mysteriously break off with her when the brother leaves
Come out...as a Republican.
Claim you majored in Drama because that's where all the pretty girls were on campus.
Along the same lines as r38, become a dancer or cheerleader because "you get to lift and fondle the chicks, even grabbing around their privates."
Let your male 'roommate' be your plus one at family gatherings.
Facebook. Have pictures of you and your lover on your facebook account and set your relationship stutus to: It's complicated.

Do what my friend did accidentally.
When his brother said that his bachelor party would involve female strippers he instinctually said "ewww".
His brother looked over at their dad and said "told you, you owe me $50"
[quote]Do what my friend did accidentally. When his brother said that his bachelor party would involve female strippers ...
Who's bachelor party? Your friend's or his brother's? Makes a huge comedic difference in the story.
Don't get too comfortable with pronouns
Oops - Whose, not Who's....
Marry a woman, have babies with her, pick up female hookers, frequent female strip clubs, pay no attention to gay guys, etc.
"Claim you majored in Drama because that's where all the pretty girls were on campus."
Yep! I can't tell you how many actors have used this line.
Another one they use is claiming they only got into acting aftering injuring themselves playing basketball/football/whatever! "Dude, I never would have considered something as faggy as drama, but then I broke my leg playing football and I had no other choice!"
What the heck does eating a colostomy bag have to do with being gay?Are you trying to come out as gay or the test-tube baby of Divine and G.G.Allen?He was a rocker who ate his own crap onstage?
Leave your Facebook "Interested in'' section blank.
I'M NOT INTERESTED IN SOME GUY EATING HIS CRAP ONSTAGE.I READ ABOUT G.G.ALLEN IN A BOOK ON ROCK AND ROLL. HE HAS TO BE THE SICKEST ROCKER EVER.AND EVERYBODY KNOWS DIVINE ATE DOF-GRAP IN THE PINK FLAMINGOES MOVIE.i THINK IT WAS. MY FORMER STEPDAD HAD A COLOSTOMY BAG BECAUSE IT HURT HIM TO CRAP AND HE WASN'T GAY.HE THOUGHT HE WAS JAMES BOND,SO WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH COMING OUT,UNLESS YOU'RE LIKE ONE GAY GUY I KNEW WHO LIKED TO EAT ASSES OUT,AND I GUESS A MAN COULD EAT A WOMAN'S ASS OU TOO,SO A COLOSTOMY BAG HAS LITTLE TO DO WITH BEING GAY.
Girls, girls, simmer down.
I am a Bro for Bro.
Talk about how much you love vagina
Claim your mother's Ethel Merman.
Claim that you don't speak of your personal life because you are a very private person.
Be loud (an attention whore).
Another alternate way to come out is just to reveal; not be emotional; turn to the person and act like you assume he/she already knew.
Be loud and ballsy like most faceless DL fags here.
When your family tries to fix you up with a woman, explain to them you've "already got irons in the fire," and some day you'll have to introduce them to "Carlotta."
Bring your mom as a date at a première. Fraus will be happy.

One guy ,when asked Mary-Ann or Ginger in a soap magazine interview,said "Mrs.Howell." That pretty much makes it clear.Or a dyke can say,"I hate Fabio!I think he's sleeping with my wife!" Nuf said?
yo bro, your bod is tight, yo.
I like OP's #1. One lunch or dinner with Taylor Swift and everyone will know. It's usually painless and drama-free... unless she decides to write a damn song about it. I didn't have to suffer that one.
I graduated from Vassar.

"Go out with Renee Zellweger."
But Renee dated Bradley Cooper!
Has Taylor Swift gone through all the gays in show business?
"Even if you don't have time for a proper relationship, everyone has time to go on the occasional date."
Why would anybody go to a date if they don't want someone new in their life?
Believe me if somebody tells you "I don't have time for relationship", it basically means I don't wanna date, I just wanna fuck, I can't be bothered sitting in a table making chitchat with you.
You'd be surprose how many people prefer fbs to actual dates, it's just easirer this way, you don't need to make petty excuses or read between the lines, you just get to the business
Have Nicki Haley appoint you senator.
"Hi! My name is Queen Latifa!"

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
