    How did they take it when you came out?

    I continue to be surprised how awesome my best friend has been about this (you can see the forum out my coming out on my profile from 4 months ago) it is so amazing. We come from a small town that is rather conservative. Just last night he and I were talking and he told me that he was sad that I ever had to hide who I really was and we discussed me finding a boyfriend and all kinds of other things I thought I was never going to be able to discuss with him. We are actually closer now after me coming out than ever before.

    Best friend since high school who is fixing to get married always supports me and is Truly my BEST FRIEND no matter the situation. His Fiance' loves me as well. My sexuality has never been an issue between us. When people found out about my preference, I have to say I lost a lot of friends, but I guess they never really were anyway...

    I think it's sort of an uncomfortable topic with my best friend. He accepts it, but we hardly ever discuss things about my love life (or lust life sometimes) with each other. It's something he's still adjusting to, it hasn't even been a year yet, so I'm willing to give him time before I can turn to him and tell him how hot I think some guys are.

    I do have another one and she is pretty much the complete opposite, as in she's trying to find out every bit of information about this lifestyle and has yet to discover which things are up for public discussion and which are private information (like whether I top or bottom). She's learning.

    My best friend reacted incredibly well.

    I was very nervous about the whole thing so didn't really talk to him about it. He brought up the conversation a while later and we had a deep conversation around the entire circumstance. Once I'd answered a few questions surrounding my initial awkwardness to it he told me he was really proud of me and that I was very brave. We've become a lot closer because of it, he really does value me as a friend and I'm lucky to know somebody so accepting and all around awesome.

    So, things have never been better.

    Less than a month after coming out to him, he admitted to me that he was bi. Then we had a little fun on the DL.

    I am sure if he accepts you he will accept all of you no matter the comfortability level... I was scared to discuss all of that with my best friend, and then once we did he asked all of these questions and it made my day that he cared so much to ask all the questions he did. He wasnt really saying anything because he could tell that I was still uncomfortable, but all we had to do was break the ice on the subject. Best of luck.

    You know I didn't think that. You think I should say something first?

    It only counts if he tied you up first.

    Test the waters. Do the whole "there are some things I want to talk to you about, but I am not sure how comfortable you are" and go from there. You may be surprised.

    Mine we are great about it. They were kinda upset that I made such a big deal about it and hid it for so long. Good to have friends like that in your life!

    I have actually been getting facebook messages lately from older straight friends too saying that they are so happy for me and that I look very happy. It is kinda obvious when I post pictures from Pride and with a bunch of guys that I am gay so they figure it out haha.

    SAME with muy best friend. He literally told me that he was sad that I had to hide who I was, and even though he is great I NEVER expected that kind of compassion or for him to even know to have it. I feel so lucky!
