Pretty much all my friends now know that i'm gay, but my family don't. I recently met a guy on ****** (Yeah, I know. Any thoughts on meeting people from that app would be good too) and he seems really nice and says he's not looking for one night stands so i'd like to meet him (for drinks in a public place first). The problem is, if i'm late home from work mum would ask where i've been and i'm an awful liar, especially if i've been drinking... I just feel like whatever I say would come back to haunt me, and she'd find out I was lying. Is there really any way for me to go on dates without being out to my family, or is it time to really consider telling them? I mean, he's already invited me to stay at his sometime and that would be even harder to explain to mum. Any ideas how I could go about this or if I should probably just come out..? Thanks!
