    I can see this topic drawing in all the RJ know it alls with their boxes of labels......I hate labels, I preferred to think of myself as not completely ready to acknowledge my sexual orientation, nor be comfortable with it....I have just recently, after 58 years come to terms with being gay, and have finally fallen in love with me, the rest is just moot and on my own terms and time....be kind to yourself, know thyself. the rest will follow, I promise....Keithicon_cool.gif

    Excuses excusesicon_rolleyes.gif I'm not out and you can't see my face in full. Close freinds and relaitives could prob tell it's me just by knowing the features of my face for yrs. If they did find me, I'd have to wonder what they were doing on a gay site?

    I've been out for over half my life.
    Came out to a jack-off buddy at age 15 (1986), had a few DL encounters over the next few years, came out to all my friends at age 21, and came out to family at age 23.
    However, I've been in and out of the closet a couple times since then to get employment advantages.
    As thing currently stand, I won't go back in the closet for any amount of money or benefits. The mental unrest it causes just ain't worth it.

    I haven't told anyone in my family yet. It's always emotionally trying when I go home to visit, too. But, every time I'm on the brink of telling them, some nasty comment about gays comes up in conversation. Since I don't want to "lose" them, I still haven't said anything.

    I didn't come out to my friends until I was 24/25, so I guess I'm a late bloomer.
