Absolutely not! If you feel that this is important information that you would like to share (some people like others to be cognizant, others like to keep it private), then you should absolutely let people know "where you stand." It does not make you annoying, and if anything, shows a great deal of confidence in yourself and trust in your friends. Of course, this is up to you to make the decision to disclose such information, but don't let "being annoying" be a reason not to share your sexuality with others.
It all depends on the circumstances, doesn't it? If you have used the word "annoying" yourself, it could well mean that some of your entourage has been annoyed. Sexuality is still deemed a pretty private matter and most people are not willing to hear details at length. If you need or want to talk about it, it may be a good idea to first make sure that the person you are talking to is receptive and to check this also while you speak. This also depends why you need to tell and if this information is important or useful to the people you are talking to. You need to know first how receptive people are before you begin and watch for any sign of unease so you can stop in time.
Absolutely not! Sexuality is a big part of who you are, and friends should accept that it's a part of your life. In my experience, my friends don't mind; it's just a natural part of our conversations when they turn to romance and sex!
Depends on the type of person. As long as the other person doesnt have a problem there shouldnt be a problem
No it doesn't... it's a massive part of who you are! But only tell them if you feel comfortable with it as you don't want to ruin your friendship with them if they aren't supportive of who you are
No, it is not annoying and you should feel free to express your sexuality just like anybody else should.
In no way should that make you annoying! You should never feel the need to apologize for who you are. You are who you are so be proud of that!
mostly depends on what type of people they are, unless you are persistently telling them that, they shouldnt get annoyed
Depends on who they are. Most people don't care too much anymore, being gay or straight or pan or trans, that's just the norm now.
Yes if you do it when the conversation is not about it or they don't ask you about it or when you talk about it all the time
You should never be afraid to open up about your sexuality. Be proud to be who you are, people closest to you will love the confidence.
No! If your group of friends care and love you for you, and are positive influences in your life, it shouldn't be! If it is to them, it's maybe time to look for some new friends!
Definitely not! It means you're taking pride in yourself and the person you are! What makes you, you
It's doesn't make me annoyed to talk to my entourage about my sexuality. I feel comfortable when speaking about my sexuality
"Every time someone steps up and says who they are the world becomes a better, more interesting place." Your sexuality is a part of who you are, but it doesn't define you and sharing a part of who you are with people does not make you annoying.
It is definitely not annoying for you to tell them about your sexuality! In fact, I encourage you to do it. Be proud of your sexuality, because it plays a large part in who you are. Whether or not they accept it should not matter at all. What's important is that you are able to be authentic in front of the people around you. Surrounding yourself with people you trust is way better than hiding your true self, as they won't try to use yourself against you. So lastly, I just want to say again that it will never make you annoying to tell your entourage about your sexuality. It's an important discussion to have if you've yet to have it and it will bring you close together to open up about yourselves. I hope this helps :)
