Previously on Someguy's Adventures in Narnia So it's been a while, but it seems time heals all wounds: I have finally accepted my sexuality, I came out to my friends and a few of them were surprised but all of them are ok about it. Next big issue - the parents and the family. I think it's time to come out to them, mainly because I want a boyfriend. I'm 23 years old and I'll be 24 in less than 6 months, yet I can count my sexual experiences on one hand and I've never had a relationship. The thing is, Aberdeen (as anyone from Scotland will know) is a fairly small city, and if you believe in the 7 degrees of separation, well it's more like 4 or 5 degrees here, so news can travel fast. Anyway, point is, if I get a boyfriend without coming out to my parents or if I sleep around too much, it's pretty much a foregone conclusion that it'll get back to my parents at some point. Not a great way to come out. Plus, I just don't want to lie to them any longer. So I need to come out to them. I know my parents would be totally ok with me being gay but there are two difficulties in doing so: 1: my mother was basically operating on the assumption that I was gay until I lied and told her I wasn't. I was in denial, I couldn't help it. But I know she'll take it personally that I lied to her. 2: Things have been exceptionally stressful recently and still are, so I don't really know when to come out. So I need some advice oh wise sages of the Large Penis Support Group: How/When did you come out to your parents? Did you come out to them both at the same time? Separately? What did you say to them? How did they react?
