I’m quite open at work about my hobbies and being into anime however I’m not very open about my love of Yaoi, too many questions I wouldn’t want to answer if my colleagues found out!

Sam, your not alone
Like you, I also hide my anime interests from others. Most of my friends tend to have different interests. As of now, I only have two friends I can talk about anime.

Closets are okay I guess but I'm not really a fan. As far as furniture goes I'm more partial to beds.

THIS.

It took all 9 years of our relationship to tell my boyfriend I like Yaoi.

Not sure what came over me there.

Surprisingly, he didn't seem to mind. He will crack jokes here and there about things, but nothing mean or insensitive. He surprised me by going to Hot Topic one day to buy a Yuri on Ice exclusive Funko Pop that's there o.O

I was shocked.

Now, telling anyone else, that's totally not in my agenda.

I got into yaoi whilst I was with my boyfriend so I’ve always been quite open about it. He knows I’m a bit weird anyway haha so he’s fine with it. I’ve even made him watch Yuri on Ice which he liked because it’s not too obvious about being yaoi like, for example, junjou romantica, I don’t think he’d ever watch that

Kind of?
I don't really have any friends to talk with about anime or mobages, and I'm pretty sure that most of the people around me either don't know what anime is or just think it's plain weird.
I kinda struggled with liking the things I like in the past because I got a lot of flack for it or because it just made me feel a bit worthless. That's a story for another day now (and there's a lot more to this), and I certainly don't feel like that now.
I don't really bring it up in conversations (like, at all) because most of my friends have completely different interests. I think I sometimes instinctively hide it?? Like if I'm playing a mobage in class (most of my mobages are anime style or Japanese) and someone comes and talks to me I sometimes close the game and idk if that's just me trying not to be rude and giving them my full attention or because I'm trying not to show them this rhythm game I'm playing with cute anime girls singing and dancing.
Though I don't really go out of my way to hide it; I usually have an anime an anime phone wallpaper (there's been like one time I've set it as an irl person and they were the VAs of some anime characters so...) and I've had phone cases that are obviously from anime before.

All of my military and firefighter friends are into anime/manga.

That's only a grand total of six people, but it is all of them
