One of my good friends came out to me today. I've never had that happen before, I'm always coming out to other people. I must say that was a truly weird experience, especially as it came complete with pics and a significant other (we communicate via e-mail as we no longer live in the same state.)
What really upset me was that he thought that i would be upset that he hadn't told me before now and that he "hoped i would forgive him". To me all that matters is that he's safe and happy, and I just hope that I was able to accurately communicate that to him.
I am however having weird flashbacks of the night that I cam downstairs to find him at my house asking my mom about sodomy laws....
I think that was quite possibly the weirdest e-mail he's ever sent me.
