This is a perfectly natural thing to experience, as realizing you’re gay can be pretty overwhelming and scary. I knew I was gay when I was three years old, and I started dating when I was 5.” Okay, that’s awesome, and I’m sincerely glad to know there are some self-confident women out there who weren’t afraid to make their feelings known.
You can think, “There must be some other reason why things aren’t going anywhere.” You probably have a hard time accepting that a woman’s just not interested.
And when you finally realize the truth, you refuse to let go.
For instance, if you have a really open-minded boss, you might decide to come out at work …
but that doesn’t mean you necessarily want to come out to certain conservative clients.
Does acceptance mean you have to come out to everyone you meet? After all, straight people don’t walk around telling everyone they’re straight, do they? Some might feel comfortable sharing their lifestyle with friends and family, while others may prefer to keep it to themselves until they feel more comfortable with the lifestyle.
Others literally pick and choose who they’ll be straight with about being gay.
After all, acknowledging them would mean that you’re admitting your entire life as you know it is about to change. Once you do admit it to yourself, you can finally start acting on it, as well.
And that is when things start to get really interesting.
Even if you’re not sure right now where you fall into the gay/straight spectrum, that’s okay.
At some point, however, you may come to the point of recognizing that you are in fact, gay.
Still, we can only acknowledge what we’re able to recognize within ourselves.
