    Hi!

    So, I DID IT!

    I came out to my friend. Actually, this time it was a little bit easier. We had been chatting for an hour about some news, work, friends and things like that. And at some point, I realized I should say right now. It was just like: "I'm gay". His reaction was absolutely perfect. Like I had said something common. I told him everything: all my feelings, plans. He supported me and moreover approved my plan to leave my town and move to Tallinn.

    I was so happy. :grinning: You know this feeling.

    We decided not to tell his girlfriend right now. But you know what, maybe I want him to uncover my secret. Why should I be afraid? It is who I am. This is my life. I don't care what others think about it. I have been thinking about this for a long time.

    Ha-ha yeah, I think it's better to come out to others ASAP. Damn, I'm an adult independent guy. Those who will not accept it may go to hell. :blush:

    Now you see, I also chose the first option:wink:

    Look at this map. ILGA-Europe track each country using a wide range of indicators; covering everything from equality, family issues and hate speech to legal gender recognition, freedom of expression and asylum rights. Malta 90%! I know where I wanna go for vocation:stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:
    Obviously, it was not like that 10, 15, 20 years ago. It is a long, hard, and painful path. The vast majority of them who seem to be homophobic actually repeat some stupid myths produced by TV, some politicians, and so forth. So, I hope (notice not believe!) many can accept it. At least indifferently. I make an experiment and kind of research. Will see I'm right or not.

    You're absolutely right!

    I think I've moved to the next phase. And I have no idea how it goes, but I'm ready for everything. There is no way back, only forward – to my happy life.

    Stay tuned.

    Thank you very much for your support! :blush: It was really difficult to come out. Now 3 people know about me and it literally means that very soon the vast majority of my friends/acquaintances find out the truth. This week I'm going to come out to 3 people. So by the end of this week, my personal score will be at least six people.

    I'm not sure about their reaction, but I must do it, First of all, for myself.
