Hey Everyone! ~New Here

Well, I guess I should start with why I'm here. LOL, I seem very practical online:). Maybe that's not a bad thing.

I recently came out to my family about a month and a half ago. I've been absolutely sure I was gay for even longer, though-since ninth grade. But even when I was eleven I suspected, but kept putting it in the back of my mind. I was already so worried that people wouldn't like me that I didn't want to give then any excuse if I could help it.

It was very funny when I told my mom and sister. They had just come back from walking the dog one afternoon-I was about to take a shower (yes, at 2:00 p.m.) and heard my sister call up to me, "Hey Sam, are you a lesbian?" I could tell it wasn't serious, that it was a joke, but the pain of keeping it secret was too great and I said:

"Honestly, I think I am."

Well, my sister flipped out a bit-she's a highly anxious person and any change scares her. She kept on saying to my mom, "Is Samantha kidding? Is she saying this to me on purpose?"

Mom was absolutely fine with it, and said she's suspected since I was little. I never showed any interest in guys, she said. Looking back on this, I realize I did flirt with other girls not really consciously realizing it. Kind of funny, our conscious minds know so little:).

I have yet to tell my dad-I want to tell him in person, not over an e-mail, since he lives in England. He probably won't care much though. He only really cares about his work, anyway-he's a mathmetician. Math is his life.

This seems like a really cool place, and I'm looking forward to meeting new people here;).

~Sam

Oh, and as an explenation for my username-Devil Dog is the name of a street in New Mexico my dad saw, and he insisted on calling my sister and me that when we were kids. I always found it funny.

The d at the end comes from a typo*blushes*. I need to fix that...when I'm not lazy.

LOL, she's okay with it now-but her shock still amuses me! Now she jokes with me about it and asks me questions. I tried not to laugh when she said, "Do you think you're man-ish?"

Me: "No, I just have no fashion sense!"
