*counts fingers* I came out to the third person!!!

Well, I came out to Faith last night.

We were over to Evangeline's place, sitting on her bed, talking about s!it, when at some point she notices that I shave my legs. So, she turns and asks me why.

"I'll explain to you later", I answer. Having already told Evangeline that next time I would come out to Faith, she took this as a signal to leave the room. And she did, but before she left she whispered to me "Now's your chance, do it".

So, I turn to Faith.

ME: I wanna tell you something.
FAITH: Throw it. (I don't know if you got that expression, we do)
ME: Why do you think I shave my legs?
FAITH: Because you're a footballer?
ME: No.
FAITH: Because you're a... swimmer?
ME: No...
FAITH: Because you're a... runner?
ME: No.
FAITH: Because you like it?
ME: Well, I do, but that's not the point.

At that point, Evangeline comes back in the room.

EVANGELINE: So, did you tell her?
ME: I'm trying to, but it seems I chose the wrong way and she can't guess what I'm talking about.
EVANGELINE: Oh, come on, Faith.

Faith starts looking at both of us with a semi-shocked face.

ME: Now she's started suspecting something. See the look on her face.
EVANGELINE: Yeah, I know. I got one of those when he told me too.
FAITH: Told you...?
EVANGELINE: That...
ME: Oh, come on, let's get it over with. I'm gay.

Yep, I actually said the word this time. So, Faith looks at me for a couple of seconds, then looks at Evangeline and she tells her...

FAITH: You knew all this time and you didn't tell me? [turns to me] And you told her first and then me???
ME: Well, I got to be alone with her first.
FAITH: OK... Needing time... Taking time...

Funny thing, a few minutes later, when we stopped talking about it, we started watching TV and I see a guy and I turn to Faith...

ME: See, for example, that guy is hot.
FAITH: Yeah, I know, I like him too. [notices what she just said] Omg, stop it, I need more time to deal with it.
ME: OK.
FAITH: [thinks she upset me] No, I didn't mean it that way, I...
ME: No, I understand, it's OK.
FAITH: I dealt with it, so what do you think about that guy? [shows TV]
ME: He's ugly.
FAITH: I agree. I see we got the same taste, huh?

And that was it. Of course, a lot of awkward and unpleasant questions came up ("did you always know it", "are you a top or a bottom", "do you get a hard on when you see hot guys on the street"), but after that, just fine.

That was even easier than with Evangeline. Of course then I was driving whereas this time I was just lying on a bed. But I even got to say the word, which is major progress for me. So, congratulate me.

Sweet action! Being yourself is such a lovely thing, don't you think?
