    So far I've come out to most all of my close friends.. and my family knows too

    I've talked with my mother and one of my sisters (the rest are too young).. My mother is not supportive at all..

    Got told gays burn in hell etc
    Its a mortal sin
    Its unnatural

    And she says she is tolerant.

    :mamoru:

    My father is aware (mom told him) but he avoids the issue like the plague.

    I dunno.. I'm considering myself bi but currently exclusively chasing guys.

    I've come out as bi but most everyone seems to think I'm gay :mamoru:

    I'm not entirely sure if I'll ever go after girls again but I'm not going to deny myself the option.

    Congrats! It's all downhill from here, especially if/when you have your own place and are standing on your own feet.

    The sister you told will probably tell the rest in not much time.

    your dad will eventually come around. when i came out a year and half ago my dad wouldn't touch the subject either.
    already my dad lets me and the bf sleep in the same room when we visit, takes him for a tour of the town they live in, etc....


    exactly the same as me when i came out, i haven't touched a girl in two years.

    My shrink tells me I'm moving very quickly, but as I explained to him it just feels so natural and unforced (unlike when I was trying to be straight)

    I'm just so happy I feel like skipping and dancing all the time.

    My only regret is that it took so long for me to realize that trying to be someone I was not was hurting me.
