Ok, here is the rundown. I have been with my boyfriend for 9 months now. He is out to his friends and family ( I have met both his brothers and his parents know about me). I am out to my friends but not my family (Family is very religious). My boyfriend has been very supportive but I can see the fact that I havent told my family weighing on him. Last night, we were at a club and I thought I saw one of my cousins (also gay) at a club. I kind of freaked out and avoided my cousin the whole night. My boyfriend got a little upset that I didnt even go up and say anything. I admit I have made no progress in coming out to my family, and I have chickened out everytime i planned on doing it. My boyfriend has been patient but I cant give him a precise time as to when I will come out with my family. Some of my friends say take my time and come out when im ready....my other friends say I need to tell them now. I dont want to ruin my relationship by not coming out to my family and I dont know if im completely ready to tell them. If you were my boyfriend or me.....What would you do?
