    to my best-straight-friend. and he was really cool bout it. it feels like a mountain off my shoulder! i am slowly coming out to some of my friends. before him it was just 2 of my closest girl friends but he was the biggest one.

    after i told him he said "shit man, its all good. your the same guy i talked to 2 mins ago, nothing changed." im so happy. he stood up and told me "come here man! i can still hug you!" just really glad it worked out. i hear horror stories when your close friends leave you when you come out and for this not to be one them is a big relief.

    now i just have to wait for the right time with my other guy friends but supposedly my friend said they'll all be cool with it.


    i just wanted to share with you guys icon_smile.gif

    I'm so happy that you were able to lift a little portion of that burden (if you'd even call it that) off your shoulders. I get so happy when I hear of people being able to express themselves to the people they care about and the people they care about reciprocate that love in return.

    Gratz. icon_biggrin.gif Very similar experience with my first coming out to my bestfriend. the feeling afterward is still counted as one of the happiest I've ever been in my life. When I got home after telling him, I actually had to check myself in the mirror to see what changed - I was grinning like crazy all day.

    Incredible man, way to go! It gets easier and easier from here on out for the most part. Parents can be a challenge and other close relationships, but it will only be as big a deal as you make it, hopefully.

    thanks everyone. i appreciate it. i guess its all about baby steps.


    funny story though, my friend keeps forgetting i told him haha..
    he went on a trip to vegas with his gf and she saw an ad for chippendales and had commented that "oh, i bet nick would like that" and he was like "why would he?" after a long pause "oh wow! i forgot he's gay!" ahaha

    i suppose it takes time for him to get used to the idea.

    but thanks again for the feedback and the warm welcome icon_smile.gif

    aloha from hawaii everyone

    Aw, you're so lucky. At times like this I wish I had friends.
    (Look at me just trying to make this all about me. icon_biggrin.gif)

    Congratulations!
