    That's not to say I miss being closeted but I miss that feeling of discovering this whole new scary side to myself and then having to come out to the world with it. In hindsight I know being gay is not that big of a deal and it still kinda baffles me why I ever thought it was. But back then coming out of the closet was this invigorating thing. It was refreshing to let everyone know who I was truly was but kind of freightening as well. I remember not a lot of people caring or being surprised. Some were downright evil about it but I had to be me.

    I don't get a lot of opportunities to experience something like that too often anymore.

    Anyone else feel where I'm coming from?

    Why don't you stage a second coming out? Or finally reveal something else you've been keeping secret. Are you an axe-murderer, by any chance?

    i know what you mean. i actually got a thrill at telling my mom and my brother lying to them about how i was going to go barnes and noble over some towns over or to nyc for whatever when i was going to a gay bar or the lgbt center. icon_lol.gif i was more excited about the good possibilities that would come out of it than the possible hardships that would come from me accepting that i was gay. i thought about the guys that i possibly could get with, the sex that i would be having, me possibly finding that dream guy and getting married to him in the future. now that i came out to my mom and my brother, things don't seem so fun anymore. icon_sad.gif the possibilities that were icon_biggrin.gif a year ago, now seem a bit scary and unnerving because i know that it's going to become a reality. life basically hasn't changed one bit. it's actually has turned for the worse.

    once you come out, you can't go back in. those around you will not believe you.

    I miss the whole guessing game when sharing a bed with a friend that you secretly had a crush on. Oh those two sweet sweet successful times.

    I listen to 90s Turkish pop. Nope, didn't make me feel at all unburdened to admit it. You can do better.

    Lol they were never successful for me.

    I miss everyone trying to guess why I didn't have a girlfriend and all the straight guys trying to teach me how to flirt. Lol that was fun....

    I think The Weepies are severely underrated....

    I still listen to Ingrid Michaelson....

    I bought a Paula Cole album....? I think she was robbed of the Grammy sixteen years ago.....
