I'm here because my girlfriend and I have a fairly big decision to make. I'm in highschool and have pretty much been out in my school environment (as bi, although I lean more towards gay in private settings) for a year now. My parents are also aware of this and my girlfriend and are fairly supportive.
However, my girlfriend is in a bit of a different situation. She's younger than me, and she is only really out to her close friends, so very few people at school. She isn't out to her mom, and isn't sure her mom will be as accepting as my parents were.
On one hand, we think that it's time we stopped lying to her mom about the real nature of our relationship. We also think it might become easier to be a little more out at school if her mom knows. This is something we occasionally butt heads about (me being more out than her) and I think it would be much more beneficial for us as a couple to be out to her mom and not have to have conflict over this issue anymore.
On the other hand, it is quite probable her mom could make our relationship a lot more difficult if she finds out. She has 'boyfriend rules' that we have already broken...and I'm a little worried she will direct a lot of her shock and anger at me.
I was wondering what anyone's thoughts were on this situation. Does she come out to her mom and say I'm her girlfriend? Just come out? Or do nothing at all.
I am not really sure where to go from here.
