My coming out story was rather straight forward compared to so many others I've heard.
I dated a guy for some time, he was literally the boy verison of myself, lets call him TED. Ted, loved music, producing music, he was pretty down to earth and had a pretty cool fashion sense.
But sadly, unbeknown to myself, I started to fall in love with my best friend, a girl called TIFF.
However it did cause a huge divide in the family temporarily as my family had fell in love with the TED. I would perform acts with my boyfriend and feel disgusted by such activities. I craved this same attention, but off Tiff and not some 6ft 3 something. She was soft, gentle, intelligent and didnt have stuble!
So we split up. It was the hardest decision I had ever made in my life. But it really did pay off dividends.
It was hard for my family at first to understand, my want and need to be close to this female and the love and attraction I had for women in general, was something I had never experienced.
I truly believe that you should believe your gut instinct. Listen to it, its almost always right.
It paid off for me, I hope that my coming out story helps those on the fence. I was in your position and I know exactly what it feels like.
Dont be afraid to make a sacrafice for something in your heart, you know to be right. High risk, High reward.
Who are you fooling? You have a limited amount of time on this earth - so make the most of it! XO
As a straight guy, I totally see the appeal! All joking aside though (I certainly don't mean to belittle what you went through with your family) I'm very happy for you. I think it's fantastic that you've found who you're looking for, and wish you all the best.
Congrats on realizing what makes you happy. It takes a lot of us a long time to hit that point. Great advice at the end!
Your advice is heartfelt. I appreciate that... and the lack of stubble :D
Family is important, but they should never get to choose who you wind up with for the rest of your life. At some point, we're each supposed to break free and find ourselves (and our soulmates) on our own. I'm very happy that you've been able to do so.
Ick. Stubble. LOL. Nah, seriously... I think it's marvelous that you were able to figure out what you wanted (or rather who) and grab them up before someone else got to them :D It's something I'm trying to do right now. Straight guy looking at a girl here, but see, I've found one... and I'm pretty sure she cares about me too, hair and all. So, very sincerely, best wishes to you for the future!
I always read of people on reddit who ask advice about making new friends,meeting new people to avoid being lonely.Where these guys loners all along? So they never had friends? I wonder.Whoever told me that teenage was an awkward phase of your life never really tried walking upto an stranger in public striked a converstation with him.
But I was never a loner.I remember my school days very vivid a...
I'm 30. I can't pay bills or rent. I wanted to be a meteorologist, but I'm one paper short of my degree, and I'm fairly sure that I won't find a job anyway. I currently teach/tutor at a private school in Washington state, but it pays minimum wage.
I look around at everyone I went to high school with. They're all married/sickeningly in love, have kids, have grea...
