Just remember, the only reason they are not excited about it is because they haven't experienced it. I can't imagine how anyone could have some of the lucid dream experiences I have had and not be running around telling people. To me, it's like you visited another planet and came back to talk about it with other people. Of course you are going to be way more excited then they are. You just wish they could have along with you.
This is an interesting topic and isn't really "off topic" so you should post it in the General Lucid section.
Although, I always try to speak within their ability to listen and accept what I'm referring to.
I talk to people about astral projection as well, I just don't call it astral projection. I know the limits of most of the people I talk to, so I try to stay within them.

-''No, or maybe''.
If he has told yes, i will talk about lucid dreaming with him.

I thou like to at times push people to the border of their receptivity.. eg take them just a wee wee step further like the next level of where their current believes are now. eg at this site I will mention things at times which go a bit (for some a lot ) beyond the LD stuff and into harder stuff to believe (I like to open peoples minds to what I know are things out there). I would do that here as there is some openness here anyway.. but wouldnt do that to an every day person in real life. (thou if they are into stuff like LD and other stuff.. I then can talk further then about things like I do here).
You just need to find out peoples own experiences and how open they are.. to know just how much you can say without causing issues for yourself eg it wouldnt be good to say too much and have a friend start avoiding you as you have made them feel uncomfortable due to going beyond their own beliefs too much). Test the waters first before opening yourself up too much.

I'm sorry I brought it up; I was very embarrassed that she didn't know what I was talking about; I tried to explain it to her a bit, and I got some very clear 'vibes' from her that she was uncomfortable and perhaps 'suspicious' about my 'sanity'. I'm not doing THAT again!
I'll give an example of how I'd test out this subject with say a friend who I didnt know at all how they'd respond.
me: "I love to dream... do you ever get interested in your dreams?"
(wait for a response..often the other will then start telling about their dreams).
me: I sometimes have these strange dreams in which its like Im awake in them...
(wait for a response... is the other interested or not? I can drop the convo at this point or take it further.. just slowly and being very careful with how I say things, so I can stop before a friend ever gets too uncomfortable).
You can learn how deep you can go without making the other feel too uncomfortable with all kinds of strange subjects if you go slow enough with people testing the waters out the whole time. eg Most I can tell I do things like reiki and spiritual healing... very few I could tell Ive been called upon to try to fix a full spirit possession or that Im probably a walk-in starseed (thou at times that in real life has been discussed with people). I know just how far I can take subjects with my family and friends.
I didn't tell my friends yet. I will tell only if i know that he/she is an open-minded person.

-''do you remember the film Inception''
Last week i could tell this to my brother in this way:
-"Do you remember on Inception where the girl bended an entire city?"
-"I did it on our street, on yesterday's dream."
Me: "I'm into this thing called lucid dreaming"
Person: " What's that?"
Me: "It's where you are in a dream and you know you're in a dream, then you do whatever you want"
Me: "... (do they even know what I'm talking about or care? )"
Some people ask me what I do in my dreams and I tell them what I usually do.
I told my parents but I'm not sure how much they truly understand lucid dreaming. They like that it's influenced me to meditate though.
Sora: You shouldn't call them "ghosts". Sure something seemed a little off but I'm sure they're still my friends
