First Supportive Friend

I came out to one of my best friends on the internet today, and she is actually the first
female friend I came out to. She is a very cool kid at school. She is straight but always asks me about all the guys stuffs. Anyway, I decided to tell her because I knew she will understand my feeling and I trusted her.

The conversation started like this:
Me: Hey I am bisexual and I have a crush on a guy in my math class(I was so proud of myself when I typed this.)
Her: I hope he is not my crush lol
Me: Haha no (I eventually laughed )

I told her that I've told some friends before but they didn't seem to be helping. She comforted me and said that she would never judge people on their orientations and she will always support me. Then I mentioned about how I envy her that she can say which guy is hot whenever she wants, she told me that I can always tell her and we can discuss our opinions. The whole conversation was kinda hilarious but I liked it.

Re: First Supportive Friend

Congratulations on coming out to your friend! Awesome!
What’s the greater risk?

Letting go of what people think – or letting go of how I feel, what I believe, and who I am?
