    Just wanted to share my story. Last weekend at 20 years old, I came out to my family. I looked them straight in the eyes and told them……. The response was unbelievable, and I come from a conservative family. My father and brother both were astounded at the courage I had to come out and all in all, the family is closer now then before. I think my family respects me more after coming out, and I feel blessed to have such a supportive family.

    And…………

    Tonight marks the beginning of my first official relationship. I cant say I’ve had the best luck trying to find a guy my age who wants a monogamous relationship…..I’ve been through a lot of crap with guys, but tonight marks the beginning of my journey with my first boyfriend! We’ve been dating for over a month, and as we laid on the beach tonight cuddling and gazing at the stars we made the commitment to a relationship. It couldn’t have been a more romantic and beautiful moment! It was a full moon baby! And the ocean was amazing! and I feel blessed to have met such an amazing guy….

    Its been an amazing week!!

    A rare coming out story. It reads like you're a blessed man. Congratulations. Stay focused and always look out for number 1 (you).

    July 5 was not a full moon. Close, but no cigar. The first full moon for July occurs tomorrow, July 7, at approx. 9:21 p.m. Trust me, I'm a Cancer.

    Congratulations! It's a great feeling have the weight of the world lifted from your shoulders. Coming from a conservative family, there's so much doubt and fear of rejection. That's gone. It's a great feeling.

    And to have a found a man to share with you this experience, this time in your life, I'm sure things couldn't be better.

    Again, congrats on what must feel a bit like a new life.

    So the real question becomes...

    At this point..Is there a ritual of some sort when we shake hands or bump fists or tap the inner side of our right foot together....maybe some stepping involved?....where that kind of good-luck and surrounding positivity is passed from one individual to another????

    If so- FIRST- called it! icon_biggrin.gif

    Congrats man- I'm extremely happy for you and totally envious.

    POSITIVE COMING OUT, COMPLETELY EXCEPTING FAMILY & MONOGAMOUS RELATIONSHIP COMPLETE WITH FULL MOON BEACH DATE all in one week! (sits and dreams about that while staring at the wall behind my computer screen)


    ? Wait... its not April fool's Day for like July is it ? icon_neutral.gif

    5 bucks says we're all going to be here in a few weeks reading a post about how "he cheated on me" or "how immature he is"

    and blah blah blah.


    lol.

    I'm just kidding man. Best wishes to you. Coming out is the hardest thing... it's all smooth sailing from now on icon_smile.gif

    Congrats!

    We almost always do our best when we walk into, through, and beyond, our irrational fears.

    It is uplifting for all of us (closeted of not) when a 'coming out' success story is told.

    Congratulations!
