I'm almost certain I'm bi; in addition to pining after my guy friend, I also hold something of an infatuation towards this one girl in my history class--she isn't too bright, but she is an otherwise sweet girl...and pretty d@mn hot, too...

maybe i'm bi but in denial. although i think i'm only physically attracted to guys. don't think i'd want a relationship with one. make me feel self-conscious (spelling?)

gagaf,


I'm curious about your description as self-conscious. Do you mind elaborating on that a little?

Oh God. I told my parents that I like boys just now, and I feel absolutely awful. My mom seems so upset, and my dad...my dad's sort of just put on this stern face and is trying to hide the anger in his voice. I wish I had somwhere to run to. :cry:

Oh my goodness... *HUGS*

Coming out to your parents is a very courageous thing to do. If you need to talk, I'm sure we're all here for you.

Let us know what happens with your parents. I'm hoping they'll come around and be supportive. I'm sure they'll need some time to process the information.

Thanks, guys.

Even if I still feel kind of lightheaded, I think I made the right decision. I couldn't go around with the big secret anymore. It wasn't good for my health, especially in the past week.

About a week ago, I happened to catch an episode of As the World Turns, and the gay couple on the show, Luke and Noah, for whatever reason really inspired me. It was the relationship I wanted, and it wasn't something I could get locked in the closet. And mom and dad deserved to know first.

Well good for you!

I worry, though, when kids come out to those they are dependent on. How do you THINK your parents are going to react now? I assume since they haven't done so yet that they're not going to freak out and kick you out or anything...

They both just told me they love me, and that whatever happens, they will. And my dad told me to do whatever makes me happy. It makes me feel better, but they told me not to come "fully" out yet. They're worried about "gay bashing."

I was going to do an ethics project on gay marriage, but they did ask I do another topic to avoid 'suspicion.'

Well, it's a start, I suppose.

I think it's critical you handle coming out in the way that feels most natural, or which otherwise makes the most sense to you. Your parents have given you advice but it's more important, I think, to be yourself and to fully expect that the world will just learn to deal with it.

Good for you PeachFreak...its not easy.. But you have had a great response from your parents, the one we all hope for. They will still be a bit confused about how to handle it, they haven't had as long to think about it as you have. My Dad was the same, being from a different generation where being gay wasn't as accepted as it is now. He is fine with it now, and always has been really. After telling him, which I didn't exactly do in the best possible way, he totally surprised me by phoning up a helpline for parents with gay children. I personally think its best to break them in gently...I kept pushing my Dad with little bits and pieces here and there, for example telling him I wanted Spain to win the World Cup 'cos I fancied their goalkeeper! Even though we all live together now, Dad still does refer to my boyfriend as 'Jamie's friend Gareth' :lol: despite the more astute members of the family/friends/neighbours catching on a long time ago. But that's how he's comfortable, cos of the generation gap and he doesn't really have anyone to confide in since losing my mum. Anyway...you have got the hard part over and done with, well done.

Cute, and follows the original pretty closely. It's impressive.

I recently came out to my parents as bi. My friends all know and are cool with it. My family had kind of a hard time with it at first, although now they seem to be okay. I told them when I started dating someone, so that might have been a bit much for them to handle, perhaps, but everything seems cool now.

Good for you! Although not surprising, I must admit. You do like Clue, after all... There's something about this game...

Suddenly I'm getting gay adverts on the left side of the screen. Is it due to the popularity of this topic?

The side ads can be pretty offensive... like "Dating for Nerds!"
