So it's been a long time since I've made a thread in the Support and Advice form, simply because (in terms of my sexuality) my life has been brilliant. My parents seemed ok with a "don't ask, don't tell" policy, and everyone else in my life embraced my sexuality and accepted me. I came out to my parents last year (just under a year ago) and they were the last people I told, simply because they are hardcore christians and make it clear they don't accept homosexuality. So since then it's been pretty cruisy...the whole process was a bit of a "ok thats fine, we dont agree with it, but we still love you". Since then I've been single. Up until now. I met a lovely boy called Davey a few weeks ago and we've been dating ever since. Well tonight he's coming over for dinner with the parents and I'm actually bloody nervous about the whole thing. I told mum 2 nights ago that my "friend" was coming over for dinner and that we were "seeing eachother". Just about 10 minutes ago I was sitting at the kitchen table eating lunch and dad comes and sits next to me - something was awkward because he kept changing subjects until it "seemlessly" landed on tonight's dinner. Anyway he said something along the lines of "Micah, we're more than happy to have your "friend" (he emphasised friend, heh) over, but you need to know that this doesn't mean we support the lifestyle that you've chosen for yourself, and we think its an extremey destructive path you've chosen". ARGH. I turned around and just glared at him. And said a simple "ok" Dad: "We love you, but you have to respect our beliefs" Me: "I do respect your beliefs, but you need to respect mine" I don't know what just happened or how tonight will go, but I guess it shows my parents aren't as cool about my sexuality as I originally thought. Wish me luck.
