Hello all,

I recently found this forum on Google (searching for something unrelated LOL)
I've been on various other gay forums for a number of years, so not new to forums LOL but new here :) This lookes like a nice place so I went ahead & joined too.

Never been good with these intros but here goes:
I consider myself bi (really don't know for sure where I fit in as far as gay/bi since I've never been a relationship/or dated/or etc .. all I know is 'not straight').
I'm also someone who doesn't go for stuff like quick hookups, or one-night-stands...if I was ever to do something I'd want a meaningfull long term thing, I guess you could say "love first then maybe sex"

I  went to my first pridefest this spring...something I've wanted to do for a good number of years, but been too afraid to do because I'm shy, not out, and especially because I'd be going by myself...
Always thought I'd be very uncomfortable just being there, but this year I decided to 'just do it'. Turns out I was wrong I wasn't the least bit uncomfortable :)

welcome to the forum!  I'm glad you found your first pridefest enjoyable.  I imagine it must have felt great to be around others like yourself where you can be free! 

I'm thinking that maybe you can't figure out your sexual identity because you are not really experimenting or allowing yourself to get close to others. 

Have you ever thought about coming out?  Or trying to be around others more like yourself?  I see you live in Colorado - anywhere near Bolder?  I hear they have a vibrant gay/bi community.

Thanks marshmallow

It was pretty cool going to pridefest, plus it did feel good finally getting to go to one...and I don't think I've seen so many people in one place before LOL.
I'm not really close to Boulder (its over an hour's drive from me)...I've only been there once (late this summer, also my 2nd pridefest which was small compared to the Denver one)

I'm fairly shy so even getting close to others/making friends in general is hard,  but also there's noone around here like me....

I haven't considered coming out...at this point I don't wish to be out, but also where I live (outside city limits) there's allot of homophobic people around (my parrents/family members are the same way, with the exception of my sister who's accepting of gays & has at least one close frind who's
gay )

We all have to move at our own rate and follow our own path.  Read through the posts here.  There have been many who have shared their coming out experiences.

When the time is right for you, you will make the move .... :)

I have been reading through the various posts here :) Too bad this forum isn't real active like some of the others.

If you woulda asked about me coming out even just last spring the answer then would have been "never" ... but now I can't say 'never' anymore. (LOL thinking about it I was out for part of a day (twice) when I went to pride :) )
