I'm outta the closet

I'm not really sure what came over me but I've been coming out to everyone this weekend. I kinda thought fuck it! Its an odd kinda feeling. Everyone's coming out story is different. For me there was no huge relief it just felt normal. I was talking about myself openly and honestly for the first time in my life.

I'm happy with who I am so I never worried about anyones reaction. I felt nervous telling people at first but it got easier with each one. I've never really came accross anyone homophobic before. I'm sure I will though. There is a part of me which relieved. There were things before that I couldnt say or comment on and now I can.

Everyone is really happy for me. Some will say "I told you so" and some say "No your not - your joking with me". I've had some interesting things happen since though.

My inbox is now flooded with half naked men emails from some of my female friends. I've also watched gay porn with some of my straight friends. I've also drank more than I have in my life. It seems everyone wants to celebrate my gayness lol. Its been a fun weekend. One that I will remember for ever.

I was sick of living in the closet. I know I said before that I never felt the 'weight on my shoulders' but what did get to me was that I couldn't waste another day not being my true self.

I feel on top of the world at the moment. To all you closeted guys. Do what you're comfortable with there are alot of people in tough situations but know that it's better on the other side.

Love you all

A Proud Gay man named Andrew

Cheers! It's a fun feeling! I've had various people start introducing me to their other gay, single friends... it's been so much fun. Granted the guys I've met so far haven't been that perfect, handsome, "regular guy," geek, but it's been fun!

Have fun with it! I've actually started keeping track of the # of people I've told (there's a counter on my blog, lol), and now, I'm getting creative with how I come out to them... most recently I was talking with a couple of co-workers who didn't know, and told the story of how a mutual friend, while drunk, outed me. ;-)

It went well. From the sounds of it, yours is going well too!

Congratulations! Being in the closet takes a lot of work and energy, and it only gets "worse" the longer one delays coming out. Enjoy your "new" life. Cheers.

Good on ya!

Yeah, I agree with RC, staying in the closet is far too much hard work. I had a lot of fun coming out to everyone. I still do lol, mainly cos you wouldn't take me as being gay if u just met me....
