    I promised to myself that this year I will come out to all my friends. Not all at once, I wanna take it easy.
    But not to my family. I'm not ready for their reaction yet.

    So I just came out to my best 3 friends from my High School days. They were very happy that I told them. Actually they seem to be very excited.
    They said that I'm still Mihai that they know for 5-6 years. I just hope I'll get this reaction from all of my friends, but I'm not sure that will happen icon_smile.gif

    If you are good, I will keep you updated icon_razz.gif

    Mihai, you are a beautiful soul, and that goes a long way in how people view you, straight, gay or indifferent....that is the secret to life, not sexuality...Keithicon_cool.gif

    I'm very happy for you, Mihai. You'll realized that real friendship is wayyyy stronger than some prejudices towards homosexuality. I'm sure it'll be fine !

    I have an excellent relationship with my friends now that they know it. I have no secrets anymore, I can tell them everything, without censoring myself, and this feels incredible, you'll see ! icon_smile.gif

    I wish all your friends will react as your best three!
    In fact, I really believe so. When I came out to all my friends last year, they all act normally, some of them seemed suprised, but more were excited! lol...
    But not ready for my family yet~ icon_confused.gif

    I just told a neighbor from the campus who is maybe my dearest friend. He is ok with me, he said he will be there for me when I tell the others and he will take my side if someone says something bad about me.

    I believe only now i find out what really nice friends I have.

    Next step: roommates.

    I think I will wait until tomorrow. I don't believe i have enough courage left to go on today icon_smile.gif

    But i have to say. It really does get better

    Yes. I really do feel much better.

    And I will thank RJ and my boyfriend for this, because if I wouldn't have found this site with so many happy openly gay guys I don't think I would have done this icon_smile.gif

    So, Thanks again!!!

    I came out to many friends now, soon the entire college will find out because people talk but i have yet to come out to my best friend. i have to admit, i am actually scared to lose him.

    well, am i considered out now or no, until i tell my family also? icon_razz.gif

    ps: i had no negative reactions so far icon_razz.gif. also the girls became much more friendly, they ask me out, 2 of them didn't let me pay for my pizza, one even told me most of her secrets about her relationship with one of my roommates.

    One guy said that it's very cool that i'm gay and i am his first gay friend. i said not really, because if i won't get a room in the campus next year also who will stay with me in an apartment. he said: "If I don' get a room also, will you stay with me?". lol.
    But i am still confused at the moment, i'm really not sure what's going on yet...

    To sum it up, you're becoming yourself. People like that.
    Oh and I doubt you'll lose your best friend. Chances are, he already suspects and doesn't mind.

    So I got an earring in my right ear (a black one, it looks very cool) and I was hoping for my best friend to ask if I'm gay. He didn't...

    So I asked, why do you think I had my earring in my right ear?...I was hoping for you to figure out
    Then we started laughing hysterically. So he said ok. icon_biggrin.gif

    So now I am out to every friend that matters and I will give the positive answer to anyone asking me if I'm gay.

    I had 0 negative reactions so far. I wonder why I kept it a secret for so long...
