    I cannot believe I did it. Even though she is really religious, her reaction was calm...well i kinda didnt wanna see the whole reaction because once i told her i took off in my car to starbucks where im writing this right now. Im nervous yet relieved...I hope things go well...

    Good Luck and Congratulations!
    Be ready with lots of information and answers to some hard, strange and personal questions....have net resources that you can give her as reference, because I am sure if she is really that religious, she will have resources and information for you....be patient and give her time to absorb what you told her...icon_cool.gif

    Awesome! And give her some time, no matter what her reaction she will take a while to adjust. Just be patient even if everything doesn't go perfectly. Hugs.

    Find out if there is a "families of gays" group nearby and ask her if she would like information on it if she doesn't handle it. And if she kicks off, say to her "I know this must be difficult for you but it would help me a lot if you could try to understand me".
