    Just wanted to let everyone know that I let the most important person in my life know about my sexuality... and I wasn't shunned, I wasn't yelled at, I wasn't kicked out, nothing that I had feared happened. I was accepted and told I wsa loved. Now if only everyone else would take it the same way. To everyone, thanks for your help and support, it was invaluable.

    Congrats. It gets a bit easier each time. I guess it's always good to be prepared for a negative reaction, but I never experienced one. The telling was always the toughest part, but when done there was nothing but relief. You'll find a huge weight lifted from your shoulders that will make you wonder why you waited so long.

    I avoid discussing my orientation with the family, not so much from fear of rejection, etc.

    I'd just prefer to not discuss anything that reminds them that I'm a sexual being.

    Uptight? Yes.
