Is Fluther a good place to start the coming out process? Yes, I really am doing this.
Yes. I am doing this. Yes. I am serious. Yes. I am more terrified than I have ever been in my entire life. (including the time I was on a roller coaster that broke down, or when my dad took my brother & I to Hooters some years ago)
Prologue: My hope, is that your reaction will be like that of the first loved one I told this to. Fraiser, my golden retriever. He loves me just the same & nothing has changed, except for the occasional gay pun at my expense. Damn dog.
I figure, telling my fellow Flutherites would be a fine place to start this process. I need to test the waters & see how I handle telling a large group of people that I talk with on a daily basis. I am open to all comments & advice you may have. More specifically, I would like to hear what it was like for other jellies to come out & jellies who have had someone come out to them. What should I expect to happen & what are some things I can do to make this easier for everyone involved? Anything that you guys have to say, will only help me through the first big step of this terrifying process.
p.s. c’mon people – you should’ve had a hunch about this. At one point in time, my 3 ‘greatest answers’ were all gay-themed. You guys make this so difficult. Of course, hindsight is always 20/20… & kind of a bitch.
