So some of you probably know about the guy I used to be good friends with, he's gay (found out start of the year) and I found him on myspace as well as his blog. The first time I messaged him was a few weeks ago and I got no reply back and I was feeling a little rejected and all that. Then I thought about what I had wrote in the message, it might have come across badly so I thought I would give it another go (eager beaver!) and give him a serious honest message. So I told him seeing him so happy and honest inspired me to come out to a few people this year and if we could just talk etc.
To my surprise he wrote back half an hour later! His subject line was 'oh my god' and I was already smiling to myself because I could just picture him saying it so very gayly hehe. He apologised saying that he didn't receive my first message. (hmm..) He seemed surprised and said his gaydar must've been pretty far off and asked me questions about me coming out. He gave me his email so I could give him my number so we can catch up. He also said he missed me which I thought was sweet but he's a bit of a charmer haha. I am yet to write back, but I will because I have a feeling we'll have heaps to chat/laugh about.
Well another positive coming out experience I guess you could say and potentially my first gay friend? So I'm out to 3 people plus one person who just knew.. so 4! Not a bad effort for me. Although I am working backwards.. strangers and acquaintances first.. close friends and family later. Anyone else using this technique? Maybe I'm just a weirdo.
