    What advice, information, or anything else would you give to your younger self about life in general, or anything gay-related?

    Let's say, you 10 years ago...

    Come out immediately, you're not going to beat this thing. And you're going to enjoy college a lot more if you're already out of the closet.

    "You are about to go on a dramatic emotional journey. You're going to make some good decision and some bad ones. You'll meet some amazing people that will be with you forever and some that will break your heart. You'll travel to some amazing places and see the beauty the world has to offer. Through it all, remain positive, enjoy life and stay true - don't lose yourself."

    Most likely give myself the numbers for last weeks 30 million dollar lottery.

    In fact, if we're talking ten years, I'd have a few sets of numbers to give.

    Well since 10 years ago I was involved in a "wild new" relationship with a man, but I wasn't out at all and while confident... was very impressionable and curious.

    My thoughts today to that Chris of 10 years ago...... you made a prudent decision about the guy with whom you chose to be romantically involved, a warning about
    not being too curious, it can get you into trouble and go on about your business as you have with regard to other aspects of your life..... being gay is an aspect of who you are, but doesn't do the "driving"........ you know who you are, live your life to the fullest!

    Put the cookie down.

    I’d have to go back further then 10 years to make any real difference; at least 20.
    He is into you, go for it.

    That money you’ve been saving—Google buddy, Google.

    Power is not a bad thing if you use it well. Stop trying to ignore what you have...embrace it, run with it, have fun with it and use it to do good things for yourself and the world around you.

    Sometimes its going to be isolating, confusing and disheartening dealing with stupid hatred from people, and you might often feel like you are on the outside looking in and don't fit in, but you will be fine.

    And if it gets too overwhelming...........let em eat cake.

    dont be a total top for the first 4 years.

    also, you are BI, not gay so no dating hot guys with sisters and vise versa. this will keep you clear of hurting others

    Stop telling yourself to "hang in there, everything will be better in ten years from now" - it gets SOOOOOO much worse, Martin. In fact, you should probably just kill yourself.

    What I would say to my 15-year old self:

    1. It's okay to be gay.
    2. God/Jesus/Budda/the flying spaghetti monster is probably not real.
    3. You're not going to burn for eternity in a place that doesn't exist.
    4. Address your anxiety issues now before it turns into depression.
    5. Go see a therapist.
    6. Have fun... be a kid... and don't be so serious!
