    If you can't remember, try to pinpoint something that should have tipped you off.

    Example:

    Charlie: Hey bob, when did you realize you were gay?

    Bob:Hm....... When they were changing the other boys diapers in the newborns wing i guess. icon_razz.gif

    Fifth grade, had a crush on a classmate named John Fitzgerald. I got into a fight with a friend of his the year prior, whom I later developed a minor crush on in our junior year of high school.

    One of the older kids in my neighborhood was showing me some Playboys when I was in 7th grade and I realized I'd much rather see him naked than any of the women he was showing me...

    Of course, I had managed to catch quite a few glimpses of him over the years, so I just reminisced and was totally okay with it.

    Shortly after, I tried to turn myself straight by forcing myself to watch lesbian porn. I don't think that effort lasted even for a week, though. icon_lol.gif

    I kinda always knew. I mean, I use to think the Duke boys from the Dukes of Hazzard were "pretty" as a little boy.

    I think around 12 is when I realized I'm attracted to men. I mean, when all of the other guys in my class were attracted to the opposite sex and I was fantasizing about kissing another guy, I knew I was different. And I had to keep that to myself. I became very introverted and kept A LOT of hidden feelings to myself. Doing that, I, in turn, got picked on EVERY DAMN DAY I was in school. I didn't even stand up for myself: I just got more quiet.

    My true side started to crack when I was a Senior in HS. I started standing up for myself a lot more. That stunned people and my family.

    College and now, I let out a lot of those hidden feelings and allowed myself to be me. All of the things said that I wouldn't amount to much and I'm not attractive and I'm a loser, etc. I knew I wasn't and I didn't need to prove to them. I just became the Allen I knew I am with the help of moving away, seeing a great therapist and physically rebuilding myself.

    I wish "It Gets Better" was around when I was a boy, but I'm glad it's here now.

    I always suspected I was different. KNEW I was different when wrestling with a childhood friend who slipped his hand in my pants and grabbed my boner. He kept coming back for more and I let him. Dated girls in high school. Had first gay experience in college which lasted 8 years while both he and I dated women. Cut it off when I married and lived a lie for 22 years. Now living openly with a man.

    Knew I was gay when I learned what gay meant. Didn't always accept it; fought it for too long. Now ready to live an honest, open life and it feels great. For the first time in a long time life feels good.

    In middle school, I noticed that I couldn't stop looking at other guys in the lockerroom. Didn't realize it was sexual attraction til high school, but told myself it was only confusion. Senior year, got a taste of a man for the first time and never looked back since.
