Congrats, Zog.

"This above all; to thine own self be true."

I imagine this will pave a way for even greater happiness in your life.

Congratulations Zog! It's much much nicer not having any secrets and not having to remember the proper pronouns when referring to significant others.

I can't believe nobody else is jumping in with this! Can I get the credit for it? I only need 10 more points and I can get a new toaster oven!

I guess there could be some serious misunderstandings if you keep referring to your SO as "it".

That must have been a big burden off your shoulders. I am glad it went well.

Here's to you, Zog! To each and every one of you who have the made the decision to be who you are, out or not.

My best and oldest (since first grade) bud came out to me after we had been friends for a long time, as kids and as adults. We've been close friends for so long that sometimes people think we're brothers. Yet I was so clueless, to the point where we laugh about specific occasions when he thinks I should have have picked up on it.

He or I don't recall any topic that was off limits at any time before he told me but somehow we never went there. We shared a lot coming from broken homes and difficult circumstances in a small town. There was a line that was erased after that conversation that allowed the friendship to become more.

That's really a sweet story.

I'm back thinking about when my best friend came out to me, mostly to assuage my fears of being a girlfriend-stealing friend of his.

It was so...well, after the befuddlement and confusion, it quickly became not a big deal to me. But a couple of months later, I was still sorting it out a little.

I basically couldn't understand why another guy wasn't "wired" the same way I was, with that automatic thing about finding women attractive. I mean, I really cared about him, and he was a great friend, and none of that changed, but I was trying to figure out why it wasn't "the same" for him with females.

So, we went to a small Northwest Ohio town where he had relatives, among other things, visiting the local small town radio station. I was driving down this small community's main drag, and we both saw a couple walking down the street over on the other side. A man and a woman, and both would probably be considered "good looking".

"Dennis," I said, "look at her. How can you NOT notice that? How can you not see?", I said somewhere between drools.

He responded, "Hey, how could you NOT notice HIM?"

Touche.

That was the last time I ever asked that question.

Zog,

Your mothers reaction sounds just like the reaction my parents had. They also went through the phase of being afraid for my safety. They got over it in time. My only advice at this point is to not introduce them to someone that you're seeing until they've had time to digest everything and get used to the idea. My brother-in-law wanted to introduce his parents to someone immediately after coming out to them. It's not a good idea. I waited a few years (of course there was nobody to introduce them to ) but I do feel that it worked in my favor. By the time they met Gene they were ready to see me in a relationship.

I know a huge weight has been lifted off your shoulders, and that load will get lighter with each friend and family member you tell.

I have much to be thankful for when it comes to friends, (some) family, and quite a few people who have had an influence one way or another. I'd rather invest in people and be disappointed than never invest and be cynical.
