    Do you ever regret it?

    No, I don't because it was totally accepted by my parents. There are some times I sort of wish they didn't know about it (simply because it's such a intimate detail; but they would have to know eventually), but it doesn't create any kind of a problem in my life.

    I regret it sometimes. Mostly because, since I'm young and I am bisexual, many people don't take me seriously because a lot of people nowadays are saying they are bi as a trend. And I agree about wishing my parents didn't know, not because they don't accept it, but because it's such an intimate detail.

    Not at all, I have to be out to everyone to feel comfortable, I get really uncomfortable when I have to pretend to be straight doesn't feel right

    I regret nothing about my lifestyle and that my friends has brought me the happiness I was longing for.

    No Regrets Whatsoever....[​IMG]

    I Never Really "Came Out" As Such...(big announcement to the world),

    But I Have Always Just Been Myself..:)

    Have Never "Pushed" My Sexuality In Anybodys Face, Even On The

    Intertubes.

    If The Subject Comes Up, Then I Will Be Totally Honest With People.

    In Closing........I Have Always Found That Just Being Your Natural

    Confident Self, Worked Heaps Better In The Longrun, Than Bashing Down

    The Closet Door With A Sledgehammer, As Some Gays Seem Intent On

    Doing...:eek:....(to each his own i guess)...:)



    Cheers Glen.
     
  7. Out and the degree of being out are all relative to geographical location, what % of straight people can read you without you telling them, their comfort level/experience around gay guys

    Why would the greater, wider world care about my sexual orientation?

    Those who need to know, certainly do.

    The others are very happy to mind their own business as I am, when it comes to their sexual orientations, practices, etc. .

    When I came out everyone was very supportive & not at all judgmental. The only people who were unfortunately not as understanding were my parents. They still to this day try to pretend that I never told them. While it makes me upset that they can't understand, I definitely don't regret coming out. It was a huge weight off my shoulders when I first came out & now I'm just glad everyone sees the real me. :D
     
  10. What's a closet?? I've been out so long everyone of my family, friends and co-workers (before I retired from the US Postal Service) knew I was gay. Have been with same partner for 35 years and now married to him for 1 year (I live in CA and we got married the 1st day it was legal). People you care about knowing your gay is like them knowing your a vegan!!
