    So I just came out to my mom tonight, who's the first person in my family to know. She was watching Gilligan's Island and I just kinda blurted it out.

    And, well, she was totally fine with it! And then when I told her my friends in college knew she was like "WTF why didn't you tell me sooner they all probably look at me and think I'm an idiot for not knowing" haha. And then she went on a big rant about human acceptance and whatnot.

    So... so yeah. Huge weight off my shoulders, just gotta tell my dad and stepmom now holy crap.

    More importantly, did they make it off the island this time?

    j/k

    I bet it feels great and glad to see it went well.

    Now all you have to do is catch your dad watching the Beverly Hillbillies and you're set!

    Yeah, and they were ship wrecked, but mostly the same scenario. icon_idea.gif

    ETA: Oh, and congrats, Fish. Watch out for the Sharks, though.

    Nice! Good for you! No need to worry about the second round, looks like you got a good support group with mom and college. Do it on your agenda, good luck

    Congratulations. My mum was great too. She also did the heavy lifting telling the rest of the family for me too. icon_biggrin.gif

    Overall there was no big problems.

    All coming out stories should be this way - dull and not exciting. Maybe someday that will be the case for everybody. Congrats! I hope it goes the same with the rest of your family and friends.

    Congratulations! Glad it went well.
    I'm going to be joining that "club" (very late bloomer) in the near future myself. Anxious, nervous, excited all rolled into one. I'm from a large family, so I'm not sure how it will all play out.
    Thanks for sharing your story!

    Congrats, man. Sounds like a loving woman. I'm sure your dad will be fine, too.
