so moving into a dorm, more than likely with a room mate. same sex, as most dorms are. The question is, how open should i be with my sexuality? i would love to be totally be open, like " this is who i am. can you deal with it and be comfortable with me?" we will be pretty much living together for the next few months. i want trust and a friend. if not that, atleast respect. im an intense student, and school is the focus, and i dont want to spend any energy in having stress about a room mate. living with someone whose going through school the same way you are, you want to be able to talk to the other person, hang out, and not worry about judgments. but then, not everyone in the world is gonna be accepting or open-minded. all i want to do is just get it out of the way, i dont want to be forced to hold back, but then again, i also want to respect my room mate. last time i dormed, it was sort of a house. 2 or 3 people in a room. i met my room mate, complete asshole. the first thing that came out of his mouth was how we had a gay house mate, that he dont like gay people, and how doesnt deal with that and asked me if i knew anyone gay. and me completely shocked, and hoping not to cause any friction, just smiled and told him i knew quite a lot of gay people. i really thought that i left that kind of BS in high school. complete stress. hated him to the core. so after 2 days i moved back home(school wasnt too far away from home). totally excited though. meeting new people. just a little anxious on how accepting these new people are.
