Well it had to happen sooner or later

    So yeah, I've come out I guess. There's been a lot of tension in the house the last few weeks, as my parents know I've been seeing a guy as a "friend". We had a big row about it when I came home the other night, and I just said "well do you want to know the truth?". It all came out!

    My mother seems pretty accepting, and has said that as long as I'm happy and don't involve anyone else in my personal life, she's happy too. My father avoided the whole thing, but he's carrying on like nothing happened.

    It's a huge relief, and quite weird to have this sensation of liberty.

    Here's to a new life without lies and sneaking around.

    Congratulations!

    Get ready for some "feelings" to come out from Mum and Pop after some time goes by and the initial shock has worn off.

    My father was always ok with it.
    Mom on the other hand went through a weird period for a few months.

    Once I went off to Uni a few months later, it wasn't an issue ever again.

    This will bring you more joy, and for longer, than ever other decision you have made.

    Good for you, man. Isn't it funny that "weird" liberating feeling you get when you finally come out? No one can convince another how totally worth it it is but everyone feels this when they do. The almost disbelief that you were ever so scared to just say to the world "This is me. Deal with it!" Congrats.

    Congrats
    It's sure to happen when the "friend" is pretty great.

    Congratulations.

    I just came put to my Mama as well. (Dad is gone.)

    It's pretty tense still between us. But that is tension on the outside of me, on the inside it is much better to be out!
