Hi everyone, I'm new here. I'm 27 and I'm from southern california. Earlier this year I fell for a lesbian friend of mine. She's really one of the most amazing people I've ever met. At first she told me "You don't really want to date a girl do you?" but I just knew that I was in love with her. We've had a lot of back and forth between friends and dating because she has always been scared of relationships. But I've always been sure that I wanted to be with her.
Well now we are dating, and I am so happy because I've never had anyone be so serious about me before. I mean she is really committed to the relationship, something that hasn't happened before with someone I was dating! I'm really happy, except I can't really talk to my family or friends about it. I come from a christian background. My mom is my bestie. She's very loving but some things she just can't accept, like a same sex relationship. I told my brother, who is also bi, and he is happy I've found someone. But as for my other family and friends, I can't really talk about it, which makes me sad. Because I really want to share my happiness. So I'm happy I found this group. Hope to get to know you guys and post a lot more.
wow - so fun and exciting to be in love ! Your brother is bi and you are bi (or lesbian?) - looks like your family has gay dna! My only sister and I are both lesbians. What my sister and I did was we came out to our parents together - that way we had each other as support and neither one of us was the last to have to come out.
If your mom is truly your bestie - she will overcome her prejudice against gays and grow to understand that you and your brother are gay because of your dna. It will be rocky in the beginning but once she accepts you both, your relationships will be much richer.
Hello admin. Gay DNA...I never really considered that! It's so interesting that you and your sister are both lesbians. That must have been a huge source of support for both of you. Yes I am bi..I am still attracted to guys too, but of course I am more into exploring my "girl loving" side now.
My mom is being a bit more open. I told her that me and my sweetie are dating. She is not wild about the idea. But sometimes I mention her and she listens to me without any judgment. That means a whole lot to me!
Thanks for your reply. I am enjoying my relationship a lot. My sweetheart just got a new apartment and I'm very happy for her. We have never slept together before and later in the week it will be the first time we spend the night together. I'm excited and nervous at the same time...I know it will be very special for both of us.
Thanks again for the reply!
