    I'm bi, and a male friend of mine, who i really like, is on a couple of social networking sites, such as facebook, tagged etc. The thing is, on both tagged and facebook he hasn't specified his sexuality - I guess im just wondering whether or not you guys think if its more likely if some1s gay/bi if they don't specify, and i don't mean this in a bad way, but they're afraid/ scared/ worried that some1 will find out?

    Thanks :')

    Some people just can't be bothered to complete their entire facebook profile so leave a load of stuff unspecified. It might be possible though, I'm gay and I haven't specified my orientation on facebook, but please don't make assumptions about someone's sexuality based on what their facebook profile tells you (or doesn't tell you)

    could be right, although its more likely he is lazy and cant be bothered to edit it

    If someone (guy or girl) doesn't specify their 'interested in' on Facebook, you're automatically permitted to assume they are Gay, or Bisexual at the least. It's one of those un-written rules. Unless they are in a relationship that is.

    I always assume it to be honest, I mean why wouldn't you specify? The 'I can't be bothered' argument is only in a small number of cases, I would assume. I know 4 gay guys in my year, and only 1 of them shows their Interested in: Men, the other 3 hide it.

    Check his scalp, for anticlockwise hair-whorl rotation. Did you know that about 8% of the male population have the hair shown on the left below, whilst the rest have the clockwise one, yet 30% of gays have the one on the left?
