    Classes were cancelled so I was in my bedroom as usual, contemplating about life and what could've been if I decided coming out to everybody, that day I told myself I need help, that I need people who I could relate to cause I really wanna have friends who do understand what I say through and through (haha silly me, always asking my straight friends for advice, don't get me wrong tho I still do love them to bits haha) so here I am presenting ... Me! haha :lol::eusa_clap(!)

    When I joined EC, I was depressed, lonely, confused, and in the middle of questioning everything I'd ever known and exploring myself for really the first time. I was jobless, lived with my mother, homeschooled, and had no sense of community where I was at.

    Now, I've got two jobs, I'm going to school, I've got a loving boyfriend, I'm finally out of my mother's and living in town, I have friends offline, I'm living full time as myself, and I've been the happiest I've ever been in in...fuck, not since I was a kid.

    I joined because talking to a stranger about my problems seemed easier then talking to someone I knew offline. If I got uncomfortable I could just close the page and that made me feel more comfortable to be honest and open.

    Also wanted to meet more people, I wanted casual fun flirting and friendship. Didn't realise I would get so hooked to the site haha

    I had just had my 30th birthday, and had a couple of epiphany moments around then that I really had to be me - which involved embracing my attraction for the same sex. I was back in the closet having coming out as bi in my mid 20s, and thought enough is enough!

    I'm sure I came across the site through endless google searches of issues going around in my head as I came to terms with the need to come out.

    Since joining, I have come out to more people than before as being "bi with a preference for women", and more recently as a lesbian. This includes family, work colleagues, people at church, and the majority of people on facebook.

    Now - I've been in a relationship for the past 3 months with a woman and I feel free, fulfilled and happy!!! (!)(!)(!)(!)(!)(!)(!)(!)(!)(!)(!)(!)

    I first started lurking during the interview stage of my Oxford application, i was lonely and it was the first time i properly questioned it. I joined when i was building up the courage to:
    a) tell my friend i was gay
    b) tell my crush i liked him
    and i received lots of support and as i result i came out about a year earlier than i would've alone and have been in a happy relationship ever since and havent been bullied once...
    THANKS EC :grin:

    I just joined today! I had been reading a lot of post over the past few months on and off. I discovered there were some pretty awesome people and stories so decided to join.
