So after weeks of putting it off, i finally gave my friend a letter last night telling her that I'm gay (amongst other things.) Two things about our relationship. 1. We're both Anglicans and go to the same small church; 2. she likes me as more than just a friend and although iv made it clear i don't feel that way about her, she hasn't let go. Well anyway, she didn't take it that well. although she says she still wants to be my friend, she is trying to change me. trying to tell me that who i am is wrong and that i can never not be lonely with a guy. Now I'm also religious so i know how hard it is to accept- it took me years to finally accept who i am so i can understand why she is upset. also, she liked me as more than just a friend, which jst makes it harder still. but i felt like i had to tell her since she had written me an incredibly vulnerable email that i felt deserved an honest answer. so i don't regret giving her the letter but her reaction just sucks :icon_sad: and although i don't want to lose her as a friend, i don't want to hang out with someone who just wants me to change who i am. not after years of denial and confusion. i am happier now that i know myself (well at least that part) but she seems to think that i'd be happier straight... sigh. i don't know. any tips from anyone who's been in a similar situation would be great.
