Let's talk gender identity and sexuality

I started a new job recently, and for people like me there's this cloud hanging above our heads sometimes when we go somewhere new and surround ourselves with new people. Whether it's a new school, starting up at college or in my case starting a new job. That cloud being my sexuality. I'm comfortable with it but I get this feeling of "oh crap how will people react?" Then angry that i'm actually expected to introduce myself with that, like it's who I am when it isn't. So I started work and I didn't mention it till yesterday. I mentioned a cute girl and the friends I'd made paused and looked at me like I had three heads. It was coming, all the questions. "Oh, when did you realise you liked girls?" "That's hot!","You don't look like you're into girls" or worse. That look they give you when they think you may like them. Please, don't flatter yourselves. Luckily, those never came. I just got a "Oh so you like girls too. Cool, I've wondered what it's like to be with another girl." Sigh of relief and got on with my day. That was only a few people, not all will react like that, some guys will ask for threesomes or tell me how it's so hot and some girls might pull away from me like I have the plague.
