Wasn't sure which category to post this in so I thought I'd post it here. I'm 21 years old and am bisexual(bicurious?) and have decided to pursue a guy I'm interested in but I'm a little nervous about it as I've just now come to accept myself as a bisexual person and I also don't have much dating experience as I've had only one girlfriend and that was when I was in 6th or 7th grade. What I'm nervous about is if I'm on a date with him in a public area and he tries to hold my hand or something like that, I'm afraid that I might freak out and pull my hand away and he might take that the wrong way. I'm not ready to be out in the open yet about my sexuality as I have a very conservative dad and some of my can be bigots as well. I can be very timid and shy at times so it would take some time to get use to start publicly displaying affection like that. What is the best way for me to handle this?

This is a common issue that we deal with in our community.  It is best to get it out in the open right as soon as it feels comfortable enough.  Most folks will understand as we've all been through the struggle of accepting who we are.  There are some people who do not want to accept being in the closet and it will be a deal breaker - just depends......
