    Maybe he means he's still in the closet? If so that's definitely tough, but he may feel that now is not the time to come out (same with me).

    Or could he mean that text and pictures only go so far in expressing who you are online?

    I think he means he's still in the closet. And it's definitely tough, but right now is not the time for me to come out, and maybe it's not for him.
    oh ok it never bothers me much because i have always been a private person. i also do not believe in the idea of telling people you are gay, bi or whatever your sexuality might. i think the only people who deserve that right is close family and friends but that is just me.

    There have been times that it has been very frustrating so I just found a different circle of friends that I could express myself with. icon_wink.gif

    I dress up in a Monkey Suit and run around pretending I'm throwing feces at everyone's faces. That's how I deal with it.

    Alcohol helps. Definately hinders in every other aspect of life... but it helps icon_razz.gif

    Also having an outlet... Since I live in a country town I can drive 5 minutes and be out of town, blast the music and sing my head off. icon_smile.gif

    I was always being able to express myself. Couldn't care less what other thinks, cause it's my life.

    If you have self respect...If you have a good sense of yourself...If you admire and love yourself...Expressing who you are should be easy...It should be like breathing...Your gayness???? The people who truly love you know you and love ya ...the good...the bad..the indifferent.....The people who make unfair judgments of your authentic self...They are themselves lacking esteem and compassion.... pity them for their shortsightedness ...Live your life without regrets man..Our time is short here...it passes like a blink of an eye....Stay strong....BUD

    You leave the environment that's causing that to happen. I did a few times. Great adventures resulted.

    lol, I'll explain with music...

    ..and this one:



    and here's the words:

    Just look at your father
    And you'll see how you took after him.
    Me, I'm just another
    Like my brothers
    Of my mother's genes.

    All they ever want for you
    Are the things they didn't do.
    All they ever wanted--a little clue.
    All they ever wanted--the truth.
    All they ever wanted--a little bit of you.
    All they ever wanted,
    But they never did get.

    The whims that we're weeping for
    Our parents would be beaten for
    Leave the breast
    And then the nest
    And then regret you ever left.

    All we're ever looking for
    Is another open door.
    All we ever look for--another womb.
    All we ever look for--our own tomb.
    All we ever look for--ooh, la lune.
    All we ever look for--a little bit of you, too.
    All we ever look for,
    But we never do score.

    All we ever look for--a god.
    All we ever look for--ooh, a drug.
    All we ever look for--a great big hug.
    All we ever look for--a little bit of you.
    All we ever look for--a little bit of you, too.
    All we ever look for,
    But we never do score.

    Yeah it's girls singing but they have a point. Your life awaits. It's up to you to get out of the situations that stifle you.

    a hug

    -Doug

    Pretty easy, in fact I prefer it - less people know the more at ease I feel. Those who do know are close friends, people I can trust, enjoy spending time with and happy to open up and be honest.

    Usually get sick to my stomach.

    Living a life of integrity was like realising that I was shallow breathing my whole youth and suddenly learned how to really inhale.

    That said, integrity doesn't mean I have to share all of who I am with every person I meet.
