    Hi! I just made a post as a new member in the sexual orientation section but just wanted to say hello here too. Hope everyone is doing well!

    I'm bi-sexual I guess but I'm honestly pretty confused and leaning more towards gay (I'm a guy). Probably best to address that in my other post if anyone's interested where I explain in a lot more detail.

    Thanks for everyone's contributions so far, I've already read some helpful things in other people's posts and it looks like a good place here so thanks for making it that!

    Andoni.....Hello and a great big LGBTQIA+ welcome to Empty Closets! :old_smile: I can remember the first post that I made on EC. I was desperate for help and I got the help that night that I so needed. I hope that we can help you in the same way that I received help. The most important thing to remember about Empty Closets is that we do care about you! We're very glad that you found us here on EC and hope that we can answer questions, give you support and provide a place to vent (as long as it's not violent!) :old_big_grin: when that becomes necessary!

    *****There are 18 different sub-forums here that you can check out and join in the conversations or start your own thread/conversation. In particular you may want to check out the forum that is titled "Sexual Orientation”, there are a lot of people there who have dealt with some of the same kind of issues that could be challenging you. When you have made at least 10 posts on various threads you will be able to post messages on a member's Profile Page. Just click on a member's Avatar Picture and then click on "Profile Page" in the dialogue box that pops up. You'll then be on their Profile Page and there will be a box that says: "Write Something" When you have been on EC for a few weeks and have made at least 50 posts on various forums, you can apply for Full Membership. A Full Member can send Private Messages (PM) to other Full Members and share personal contact info. Right now you can only send a PM to a Staff Member as that is always possible. Here is a quote from the Full Membership information forum: :old_cool:

    *****To be eligible you must be a member of Empty Closets for a minimum of two weeks, and have a minimum of 50 posts. These posts must be across numerous forums (Fun & Games does not contribute to post count), and consistently posted across a minimum of two weeks. You wouldn't be eligible, for example, if you registered, had no activity for two weeks, and then returned to post 50 times on your 14th day of membership.

    *****Well, as I said, we're very glad you found us! :old_rolleyes: If you have any questions at all, you can post a question on my Profile Page or send me a Private Message.

    Thanks Jake! I tried to reply to your post on my profile but I think I need to be a higher level member to do that. To answer your question though, I'm doing well! Hope you are too

    Andoni.....Sorry you had trouble posting on Jake's profile page...at least I think that's what you meant. If you'll look back at the first post I sent to you, there are directions on how to post to another member's profile page. Hope that helps!
