I was looking at a calendar yesterday and I realized: it's been over a year since I came out to my best friend. It doesn't seem that long. I remember how scared I was to tell her, and how scared I was that she'd be creeped out, and that it would change our relationship. Looking back, I'd never have guessed it would go so well. We're even closer now than we were then, even though she moved away for college and I don't see her nearly enough anymore.

Yeah, I'd fallen for her and yeah, I was still hoping that somehow, just maybe, when I came out to her, she'd tell me she was gay too, and somehow we'd wind up together. That never happened, obviously. But I'm glad anyway. She knows me better now. I know her better now. We trust each other more. It's good.

That's all I have to say. Good luck to everyone who's trying to come out now, and I hope it works as well for you as it did for me. :)
