Umm... title speaks for itself really. I'm sure this question has been used before, so sorry if it's repetitive. I am not going to come out to my parents yet (for a while probably) but is there any point if I'm single? Will they believe me? I tried to comw out to my mom a few years ago but she didn't believe me (or want to believe). Not even sure my friends believe me. Also, assuming one day I do eventually have the courage to tell my parents, what precautions should I take beforehand? Should I try to move out first? What other 'safety nets' should I put in place? I don't think I could stay with family and I wouldn't want to put myself on friends. This is probably a few years away... But I want to plan what I measures I should have in place in case they react badly.
