Bit of a long post but here goes; I feel like im lying to my friends and family by not coming out, and I feel like its my only course of action at this point. The issue is I already tried coming out before and it went to hell and a handbasket real quick. I told four people total, one friend who tried to use it to ruin my reputation, one who never spoke to me again, and one who became my best friend. I also told my mother, who then sent me to therapy until I said I was straight. Needless to say it messed me up real bad, this ain't even considering the fact that im basically a stereotypical straight guy (genuinely love football, shooting, carpentry, etc). I just don’t want people to treat me differently just because I like guys. Im going to college this August do that leaves me a choice, do I come out or do I just wait till college which will be far enough not to be an issue. I really need some honest opinions about this cause I only really don't have any lgbt friends I can go to. Thanks for listening anyone who made it to the end, its greatly appreciated.
