I moved to a new city a while ago and I have a whole group of new friends/acquaintances here. They're nice people, we're all students and we live in an LGBTQ+ friendly area. But still I just haven't been able to come out to them, even though I really want to. At first I thought it would just come up in conversation - and it does, but I always chicken out. I mean, people talk about relationships and stuff and whenever I say something I either keep it really general or use gender neutral pronouns. The last person I dated was a girl and I'm currently (and maybe forever) only really interested in dating girls, so why can't I just say "she" and keep saying "they" instead?! (It would be a different story if I was talking about someone who uses they/them pronouns, of course). Everytime the topic of dating comes up and I say something (most of the time I just keep quiet) my heart starts beating like crazy, I'm sweating like an idiot, I'm so nervous. I don't want to lie or hide myself but I just dread the moment where they're like "oh, so you like girls?". They're just all so straight. Does anyone have any advice as to how to overcome this? At some point someone's gonna notice that I keep using gender neutral pronouns and ask me why and that thought stresses me out like crazy!
