Ok some people are right off sure what they're sexual orientation is. Others take their time discovering it, and they either are totally open to what they might be or... just assume they are straight till proofed otherwise. Now it's common knowledge that if a person discovers that he/she is not as straight as assumed, even should the family and friends around accept that, some people still feel uncomfortable about the whole thing... BUT that's been done and talked about (even on this board) before... What I wish to talk about is something different. I know a guy, he's gay and he's comfortable with it. That's how he is and he feels great having a boyfriend. However when I used to be not sure about my sexuality , we talked together about it and how he discovered he was gay. He told me he is extremely embarrassed of the fact he assumed he was straight. Now OKAY! I know it's a lot better that he's embarrassed of that rather than of being gay.... but still, I feel sorry for the guy. There's no reason to be ashamed of that. I'm not ashamed I wasted many years crying over whenever I'm straight or gay only to end up bisexual... sure it was a pain in the ass, but the end result is what counts, now I know. But I guess I can't understand it that well because going from straight to gay isn't the same as straight to bi. Anyways, I felt like discussing this with you people. Does anyone here have anything to say on the subject? Is anyone here actually ashamed of being wrong or not knowing his/her orientation right off?
