    Yup. I was scared at first. But then my best friends were cool with it, so gradually I started coming out to more people and everyone was like "nah, whatever, we like you just the way your are" icon_biggrin.gif

    No, I lived in a very homophobic area, gays were bashed verbally and physically at my high school with little or no consequences to the offender icon_cry.gif

    I went to a catholic highschool where anyone who was openly gay were severly bullied so thats a big fat NO from me....

    that plus I was still in denial about my sexuality back then and considered it just a phase icon_confused.gif

    Reluctantly accepted that I was gay in 8th grade, realized my attraction early in elementary. Came out in 9th grade as gay, under pressure from 'friends'. I began to identify as bisexual in 11th grade when I met 'Courtnay', who was a bit disappointed to find out I was gay.. Well...dated her from 2008-09. That was a mistake, though it was the best relationship that I've had since, I lost her as a friend. We had so much in common, were so alike, she understood me like no one else had ever, that eventually it built up to something sexual. Initiated by myself...I'm always the one doing the chasing, it'd be nice to be chased for once. icon_rolleyes.gif Anyway...I no longer identify as bisexual, though I have a sexual attraction to some women, it's usually in this order: cerebral, emotional, sexual.

    Where with guys...the first thing I notice is not usually their mind. icon_wink.gif

    I never really caught any shit about it in high school.

    Absolutely not. I knew enough by the time i was 15 or so to know i was different....but (thanks to a total lack of sex ed, and a fervently religious mother) i had no idea what it meant. spent most of my time scared of my own shadow, and terrified of gym class and the locker room.

    More or less the same. Deep down I knew, so I just put sexuality out of mind and dove into my music and played it off as much as possible. Unfortunately, being unattainable just made the girls hit harder. *sigh*

    In high school and college I had a series of sexually insatiable girlfriends, and was 1000% involved in sports, so except for being surrounded by great looking jocks all the time, I never really thought about m2m stuff.

    I wasn't out in high school and I had crushes on all the hot athletes, especially guys on the football and basketball teams. Only once in high school did I have a sexual experience with a kid from another school and we were both scared of being outed. The fear kept us apart and I didn't really experience gay sex until I was off to college and away from my small town life

    I came out as a junior in HS but for some reason...I never had an active interest in dating even back then. I was always more interested in the social aspects of partying with my friends or playing baseball.

    Edited: I forgot to answer the original question...no, I actually never had any problems with being gay.

    I was in a fight almost weekly throughout high school, just because people suspected that I was gay. This is why I dropped out half way through my junior year. I could only fight so many, so no. I never said it, but I never denied it.

    Hells no. Catholic boys school. Half the faculty were religious and hiding their latency with homophobic remarks.

    I came out in college. Years later, found out I missed a whole underground scene when I'd run into HS classmates at parties and clubs. THEY were all gettn it on the whole time.

    One guy said he had a crush on me all through HS but didn't think I was gay. I was more than glad to oblige his desires that night.

    I was out at 15 and once I accepted myself was very VERY comfortable. My friends knew. I brought my boyfriends to parties and school functions. Everyone knew we were more than "buddies" but they didn't really discuss it. I went to a small private school in NYC so it was a bit different. The kids were priveleged and well-traveled. There was a bit less ignorance. Still, it was the 80's. Things have come a LOOOOONG way since them.

    I was comfortable with myself, but didn't feel others would be comfortable. All my friends were very straight. That was something that just wasn't discussed.

    I'd like to think today's youth has it a little easier, with more acceptance (at least in some areas) and more avenues to find others (like the internet and smart phone apps, etc.)

    i didnt even know until my senior year, and i spent most of that year covering up that i had a crush on one of our soccer players. ultimately, word got out at the end of the year before prom, and he confronted me.

    long story short, i ended up having sex with him, and this girl i was trying to get with, and it ended that night icon_sad.gif

    well, as they say c'est la vie
