    OK, I'm doing it. I'm beginning to come out at school. I told a guy I know about my sexual preferences earlier today.

    I plan to completely come out at school in the next few days. I don't know if I'll have the guts to do it but I'll try. I'll keep you informed.

    Fred.

    Good luck man.

    Make sure that you feel right about it, because once you come out, especially at school, there's really no going back.

    I'm tired of living a lie, it's killing me. I can't carry on like this. I need to be free at last.

    Be care ful that people may become your rivals, or enemies.
    This happened to me wen I kinda accidently came out, and some straight people began to hate me, race me, chase me down, broke my heart, they made me sick
    Well, but you have to do it anyway, so you can free your soul, it's you who you care about , not other people. Just go for it, and don't care about the bad things that might happen

    Sorry the last time I missed what you say in the game!

    What they said ^

    I honestly hope you can come out, as from the sounds of it, it will be the best thing for you. But, school can be a crazy place, so just pay attention to how people react and things. But, from what I've seen so far, I think you'll be fine!

    You tell one friend and beg him or her not to tell anyone else. Then he or she does the same thing to their other friends:lol:
    Eventually, everyone knows and maybe your parents do too:icon_sad:
    In the past, i was about to tell my friends about my identities many times but i didn't. looking back to those days, i feel how stupid i was to have such a intention and how lucky i was not telling them.:eusa_danc
    Be careful

    Geez guys, way to be pessimistic!

    miaplacidus, yeah, it's risky, but it can be worth it. And you're at college, right, not high school? So hopefully it will go over more smoothly there.

    Not that I know what Uruguay is like when it comes to be being non-straight. But I wish you all the best...

    The reactions have been good so far. However, I've told only about 10 people now.

    Once it starts it doesn't stop until you realize that all the people who you care about know -- and that's the hard part. I wish you all the best as you continue to proceed. It's so very much worth it -- I can't tell you how I wish I could reclaim those years spent in the closet!

    It's going as planned. Today, I stopped whispering to Cecilia when I talk about guys. Now I use my normal tone. It was hard at first (I was sooooo used to whispering) but now, I don't hide it anymore. I LIKE GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol.
