well i use the term lightly as im not sure how but the topic of emotional health, which came to me saying my [emotional health] wasn't that healthy, which lead to an awkward conversation of the little problems in my life which lead to what causes alot of stress on me which eventually to me saying "imagine your 15 and in my shoes" which dad then guess repeatedly.

until he said "oh your gay? its okay if you are" and i responded "no, close" a few seconds later he said "bisexual?" i just responded "yeah" my dad took this so well although i did feel like was was a bit patronizing like i was unsure of my sexuality but i was so relieved about that i couldn't care.

he did say he had a hunch at i was gay or bi because of they way i was acting and talking lately, i was trying to bring the subject up so he would ask, but turns out he didn't bring it up and didn't talk about the subjects in case he offended me, i guess its as you Americans say the elephant in the room (did i use that right?).

hes not going to tell anyone.

i feel so much relief :)

The elephant in the room--the big thing that's really obvious and that gets in the way, but everyone tiptoes around and pretends doesn't exist.

That's great to hear!

Glad it went so well for you, dude! If I ever told my pop when I was a kid, who knows what would have happened. I am happy for you, and yes, you did use that analogy correctly.
