I'm just writing because I am in need of some advice. I'm 18 and just recently came out as gay. I knew pretty much my family would be very supportive and they were. but everyone else ignores my existance. I had a good mix of friends, I play out a local cricket team and also friends from my ocollege, the problem i have is the majority of my friends are male. Since i have come out, I hate going down my local cricket club, I play with adults that are in some cases 20 years older than me and joke about it and are fine. but my friends, other players my similair age dont make the effort anymore, they stops talking to me, only talking when they have too and give me funnys looks. They dont even shower anymore they walk staight out. Im pretty 'straight acting' and its my surprised my best-friends, I sat him down and told I was gay and he looked shell shocked didnt say much and left not long after, ignored my texts and its pretty much the same with everyone else. I'm left in friends who now are girls,which im grateful for but its not the same to me as having a best boy friend. There no one i can talk about sports or anything anymore. I've finished college for the summer and never been across the doors with my friends, I used to go into town, satursday and monday nights. no one asks anymore. I used to go to the gym with a bunch of mates thats stopped. I've done nothing but work over the summer. I'm just left alone and a completely empty feeling. I dont know what to do.
