    I drank two cups of coffee before I talked to them via videochat. I was vibrating lmao.
    One of them is gay and the other straight, I knew they would be accepting and honestly, we talked about it before but I didn't want to accept the label of bisexuality. In quarantine, I couldn't hide from myself lol.
    But I was still anxious because they are both very "experienced". My gay friend had a bunch of guys before and he has a boyfriend now. When he was younger, he kissed a girl and decided he didn't like it. My straight friend has attractions towards men (the opposite sex) but she wanted to try with a girl to see if she liked it, and in that experience she realized she was straight.
    I'm am a shut-in extremely closeted virgin XD and even thought I'm getting the hang of accepting my attractions as real and valid, I still can't shake the feeling that they would think that I'm not "real" because I never tried like they did. I'm in a heterosexual relationship, and very committed.
    Nevertheless, I came out by saying that I wanted to tell them something-- my gay friend immediately said "omg are you pregnant???!?!!!" And then when I said no, "did your boyfriend propose to you???!!!"
    I said I am bisexual, and they were both like "o ok we knew" and I'm rolling because that's exactly the response I needed :laughing: They both went on to say they're proud of me for accepting it and no longer torturing myself with mental gymnastics.

    It meant a lot coming from them and I am glad I can finally post a positive story on EC :slight_smile:

    It's something I have been embracing for some time now. It all started with watching Brene Brown's Ted Talks. :slight_smile:
