How do go about sharing something with family?

Postby teddybear32 » Fri Mar 22, 2013 11:28 pm

I hate to start a new topic, but I need a little guidance. I am bisexual woman. I have known it and it has been secret from my family and friends all these years. Bisexual if you dont know means you are attracted to both genders and would would be with whoever you love. I have always had connections and feelings for both genders. I told friends and family once before, and they had a fit so I went back in closet... Pretending to be straight. How would I go about trying to come out again? After I went back in closet that first time I fell in with the wrong crowd. Everything just fell apart for me. I won't cheat on a partner I am happy with them but I am just not happy with him.

Just be yourself. Some might accept it, others might not. Imo you're already a beautifyl person no matter if your bisexual or not. Anyone telling you different is someone to be careful of.

Gert is right, you just have to be yourself. It's your life and you have to be true to yourself so you can be happy.

Real friends will always be your friend no matter what. The ones that don't accept it were never really a true friend. That is their loss.

Also, if you are not happy in your current relationship then it's not fair on the other person.

Good luck. I know it will be hard at first, especially for some parents but as time passes they will learn to accept that it's just a small part of you and that you are still the same person they love.

I probably won't have anywhere to go when I do tell them whenever that will be. I can't say to much because i still live under their roof even though I am of age. Yes it unfair to person and when I broke up I didn't want to get back together, but he kept calling and begging until silly old me give in. When I do tell my family I want't it to be at the right time, cause mom won't be around to many more years. She has this problem where she picks her skin to pieces. I don't know what is happening to her. Hugs to you guys :)

I see your point. If your parents are against it then you should probably wait until you move out so that they don't kick you out. I know a lot of people in the South can be very judgmental when it comes to gay people and rights. Plus if you live in a small town it's even worst.

I am not the only one in my family. I maybe the only female one, but I have gay male cousins. I don't live off of my parents. I have my own money. I give them so much to stay they just keep some of my money for bills. :) I have to give my parents money for bills. On the relationship part I have been thinking on telling him we should consider an open relationship. Breaking up wouldn't do any good cause I got this feeling that he wouldn't leave me alone.

I am at least called to mind solos because I grew up in a society where all sexual deviations are seen as unhealthy and crazy people. Or at worst criminals. Socialist Communism semi - semi capitalism suffered and tolerated any kind of blunders and excesses. Still wonder people my way. First nudist beach opened just in Yugoslavia (Montenegro and Croatia). Indeed we were people with their own ideas and their own miracles. Look to love yourself and others that you wish you would accept that which you are. If not - do not disappoint're not alone, first and only one.
However I am determined to stand alone and single without any kind of relationship entare my life until die.

I have always for you
