Tonight was an especially awkward night for me. I'd go to a MySpace or a LiveJournal, but I hate those and no one ever has any real advice. So, I'm here. Hopefully the more than helpful members here can aid me. My nephew that I saw born, now 18, is a senior in high school. My family is extremely cultured, so he's mixed and stand out in his crowd; he hangs out with a lot of the preppier people at school and excels at sports like Football, Baseball, and Swimming. Anyway, I've always been close with him, he's always told me everything. Hell, I bought the kid his first condom. But today, he came out to me, and it was the most painful, excruciating thing I'd ever been through. He was more than scared, and more than concerned. I've never seen a person act like that before. He made some very good points as to why he was afraid of being gay. Surprisingly, his "friends" didn't bother him, but his future was what he was concerned of. He was afraid he'd never have children of his own, that he'd never be fully accepted by our family, and that he may not ever even find his true love, which makes coming out altogether "pointless." When I asked him what made him tell me, he told me it was because I was the only one that would understand. Now, me asking him that was probably stupid, as my family knows I'm gay, but I just wanted to know if there was more. And there was. Apparently, he and his best friend have been "innocently experimenting" since their freshman year, which I guess is normal. However, like always, someone got more attached than the other, and it happened to be my nephew. I didn't know what to tell him. I basically just let him spill everything, but I had very little input available for him. Someone, please help me out with this. I really don't want to ruin my nephew's senior year and I don't want him losing his best friend.
