Ok, so I was talking to one of my gay friends about how utterly pathetic my dating life is, and he told me that it would get better if I came out. >>
I have no idea what it was, but something inside me believed him. So, in a blind rush of stupidity, I put a bulletin up on myspace saying I had something big to say and if someone wanted to hear it all they'd have to do is ask.
Now, I have this REEEEEALLY straight friend, who is "homophobic". And I was hoping he wouldn't regard the bulletin at all. He usually doesn't. However, for some reason, maybe it was a gut feeling of his, he decided to respond. I get a text not even five minutes after I posted it from him and I almost chickened out. My friend almost pointed a gun to my head to get me to send him the text saying I was bi. (I didn't want to shock them too badly with the whole "gay" thing. <<; Slow steps.)
Seconds later he replies, "Oooh, honestly, I can't say I didn't see it coming. I'm homophobic, so don't be creepy about it. I know you're still you, and I love you to death, but it'll take time to get used to." I seriously LOVED him after that. He may be weird about it for a while, but hey, he's trying. And I never thought he would.
Another friend was like, "Awww man, I thought you were gonna say you were outside my house with a cookie, or Derek Jeter, lol." Best response ever. <3
I'm probably not gonna tell the parents anytime soon. At a party I went to some couple hugged me. A girl and a guy. I made the biiiig mistake of telling my parents, and my mom was like, "Which did you prefer? The girl or the guy hugging you?" And I was like, "erm...I'm not used to guy's hugging me." Since I didn't want to tooootally run away from the topic. My dad was all, "No, you like girls hugging you." And he high-fived me for some reason. I was like, "Uh, no, I'm just not used to guys hugging me." They kept refusing my answer. XD
Whateverrrr. I don't need my parents to go window shopping anyway.
So, right now, I've got the closet covered in gasoline and I'm holding the match....I just need to let go....
Man, it feels good to be out to my friends.
(Oh, and do you think it was lame of me to come out through texting? I put in the bulletin that they could call if they wanted... Does it seem cowardly?)
