Hello. This is my first post here and I just joined the forum. Let me start off by saying i'm very confused. Not sexually but I am confused as to how to approach other people with my sexuality. I'll say this, I've been gay ever since I can remember - even when I was a young lad, not even in my teens yet. I've always been attracted to guys. I didn't start dating guys until I was in high school - my sophmore year, I was 16. I'm currently in a relationship with someone in Canada, I live in the US and I hope to move by next year. My only problem is, if it falls through - I will still be here stuck with my parents. I just dropped out of college due to personal struggles so I have been living at home. I love my parents but the don't really know who I am, you know?
When I was 16, I came out to my parents. Not sure what they were to do, they put me in counseling which didn't help. Since then, i've never tried coming out again and I am afraid. I know now that I am an adult and I can make my own choices but still technically living under my dad's ground rules, I don't know how to approach them. What can I do or say? My sister knows i'm gay, my best friend knows i'm gay. They are both okay with it but I don't think my parents would be. Please help me.
Also, if anyone else would like to talk outside this forum, i'd like that. I'd like to further discuss this with others. Preferably Ohioans? Is there any way to get information about maybe public meetings in my county or city? Like, you know there are AA meetings.. are there types of meetings out there for gays? Please help.
