    Yeah, yeah, I know, another "I came out today" thread. I am just so happy and relieved that I have to tell someone, even if it is online to you guys.

    I know I am not a kid anymore, and I wish I had done this many years ago, but I finally sat down with my parents and told them that I am gay. It went well, they said they OK with it, and that they love me no matter what. Thanks so much to RealJock and the guys here for all the support, I never would have gotten here without it. Next step, my brothers, but this was the hard part. I just feel so free now, no more hiding and making up excuses for where I have been. Can't wait to bring someone around to meet mom! icon_biggrin.gif

    Life is never gonna be the same!

    Coming out isn't something the 20-somethings own exclusively. You are young and beautiful! Your deciding to give yourself the gift of honesty and secure your solid relationship with your folks by being the man you are makes you all that more beautiful.

    Congrats!
