    Okay so things for me have been really really funky lately. I met a guy who is awesome in every aspect. We are getting along great and pursuing each other however, he is my first gay experience. I've never been with another man before. I am currently still "in the closet" and kind of like it here for a while. I'm not sure if this would have an effect on us or not because he is 23 and a little more experienced than myself.

    p.s. he just called to see if I wanted to grab dinner tonight down town in public at a restaurant!

    I also just received an email inquiring if I would run for president of Gay Straight Alliance at Western Michigan University. This would mean me being exposed and out of "the closet".

    Not only did I get asked to join the E-board of Gay Straight Alliance, but also did I get offered a Leasing Agent position for the student housing that I live in.

    To top things off, this Christmas I'll be meeting my transgendered brother who I have not seen since we were young.

    With all this in mind, am I just simply over whelmed or just stepping out of my comfort zone? Because I really don’t know what to think or do! lol So if you have some handy advice or conclusions fellas, feel free to comment.

    Your experience is going to be different than others.

    I say if you like the guy, be honest with him and go on the date.

    As far as being out? Do that at your own pace. It won't matter to the people that really care about you.

    I don't know if the brother you are meeting has transitioned from female to male or was your brother and is now your sister, but give them the benefit of the doubt and view them as the person they are today.

    go on the date, be honest with him in a private settings though.

    Your probably doing both, stepping outside your comfort zone and being a little overwhelmed, but they aren't bad things, go with the flow, life has a way of giving you what you need and if you go with it, you'll learn a ton.

    Well you landed square in the middle of Gayville that's for sure.

    Let's see: first guy, outing yourself in a race for the Alliance presidency and seeing your transgendered brother for the first time in years... yep you have a very different path in front of you.

    But you look great, you have support from those around you, and your confidence is now spiked by this beau.... all you need is to supply your own courage and determination and face the world.

    You know you have our support.
