Coming out?

Coming out...
Where does one begin? Do you do it straight forward or beat around the bush? I fear the day when I will have to tell my family that I am in fact bisexual. You want to hear something funny? My parrents are ok if I'm hetrosexual or homosexual but not if I am bisexual. They say bisexuals are simply indecisive. What do I do?

start by telling trusted friends you dont have to be straight forward, its which ever way you feel comfortable with. nobody said you gotta tell your parents, you still can if you wish. but i never told my parents and im 21 they still think my lover for the past 3 years is just my room mate. just do what ever feels right to you

yea pretty much whatever your ok with. everyone comes out differnt, theres no set way to do it.

but note: if you find yourself holding a megaphone in front of all year classmates/coworkers, about to shout the phrase" im gay, so suck in that, biocthes!" youve probabley gone wrong somewhere ;D

"A loving man and woman in a committed relationship can marry. Dogs, no matter what their relationship, are not allowed to marry. How should society treat gays and lesbians in committed relationships? As dogs or as humans?"

there is no one way that you

there is no one way that you do it. it depends on you and your friends and family and where you live and who you are.


I never ever ever ever came out. I just brought my first girlfriend home and said "mom, dad, this is my girlfriend Kate." and because I've never hidden it, I never had to come out.


most people aren't like that. Figure out who's the safest person to tell and have them as a fallback. Love and trust and know yourself, and don't let anybody get you down. Come out the way YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE. Whether that's letter writing or interpretive dance, only you truly know.
