I've recently been really drilling into how I play hands in certain situations and a situation I often lose my nerve in is when the flop comes completely suited.
How do you guys proceed when the flop is all one suit? What do you do when you miss entirely? what if you flop top pair when it's a suited flop?
I feel when I proceed with caution people use it against me and can tell I'm playing cautious and I know it's unlikely they've flopped a flush but it's not a nice place to get check-raised with AK spades and the board is A98 of hearts!
Let me know!

It depends on ur position, and what u know about the players u r playing against. And its not nice to get check raised, but fold it and move on.

I am a little new to the site but I do think it really depends on your position as mentioned above.
It also depends on your bet sizing if you change your bet sizing when strong and when weak it is a tell for your opponent. If you feel he is bluffing you can always call and re-evaluate the the turn.

re: Poker & Suited Flops!
This is a call you need to base on information you've collected so far. If none is available then it's a sure fold. But if you're in the late position and you know your opponents you can decide what to do.
A rule I like to enforce on myself in this type of situation is "If holding high card of the same suit and there are less than 2 opponents still playing, call and hope for a 4th. Otherwise fold."
I don't have a huge hand sample to prove this rule but I never feel like I made the wrong call lose/win.
