    Hey everyone. My name is Alex, but feel free to refer to me as "Disarray", too.

    I am a somewhat out bi guy, meaning that I don't feel any pressing urge to come out to people but will mention it in passing to friends/people I am close to if it is relevant. My parents are likely aware even though I haven't officially come out to them yet. There's more to my story, but I don't feel comfortable telling most people.. hopefully I can share and open myself up more here, since I have been feeling very isolated and dealing with loneliness lately.

    Glad to be here, and hope to get involved more :slight_smile:

    No problem :slight_smile: and if you haven’t had the chance yet check out the support forums. I know you mentioned “more to your story” and that would probably be the best area to post for any advice and such!

    Welcome to EC, Alex! :wave:
    I hope you continue to share your story. My experience has been that the more honest I feel I am with others, the easier it is to be honest with myself. This place is a wonderful, safe place to share your thoughts and feelings.
    I hope to see you around the forums! If you need anything, please let a staff member know!

    Thanks everyone, I really appreciate it! I want to reply/post to some people on their profile, I assume there's a post amount I need to hit first before I have permission?
