I think my dad knows I'm gay...help?
Question: Firstly, I'm 24, not 14. Secondly, I'm actually bi-sexual. I guess you could say I'm a fairly normal person. College student (I took a break for two years), friends, family, active intellectual life. However, since I was sixteen I have found myself extremely attracted to effeminate/passive men, it goes without saying also to young woman as well. Early on this, naturally, lead to a lot of confusion. However, when I did my research I discovered I was bi-sexual, outed myself to my friends (who were not exactly overjoyed), and have kept it from my parents. I may be overreacting here, but, whenever I am with my parents and something related to homosexuality comes on TV or enters the conversation, I become immensely uncomfortable. I try not to make it obvious, but I always have extremely high levels of anxiety that I am giving myself away. The reason why I am writing this is because today, after breakfast, my self-absorbed sister started to talk about all her gay friends. I looked out the window (In angst), and my father (who is an idiot...well, actually not really) said "Did something about the last conversation make you ANGRY, son?". I was gone within 5 minutes, I was suppose to visit all morning, but I felt as though I had to get the hell out of there. Which probably only made things worse...:( So there it is, hey, heres a joke: "Hes so bind to the obvious, he can't even hide in a closet" get it! Also, my mother has asked me several times is I'm gay over the years...uhgggg! My question(s): Do you think they know? Has this happened to you before? If so what happened? What should I do? Much thanks!
Best Answers: I think my dad knows I'm gay...help?
Do you think they know? It sounds like they do. Has this happened to you before? Yes. My mom and dad has asked me that question before. I don't want my dad to know because I'm pretty sure he'll hate me even more. My mom might think strange of me for awhile, but she'll always accept and love me. If so what happened? I have't told my mom or my dad, yet. I'll never tell my dad. He'll just have find out some other way. I want to tell my mom, but too worried. What should I do? When you feel comfortable you should tell them, but only if they are open minded. I really hope when ever you tell your family they will accept and love you. I'm bisexual.
Stop acting like a child. You indeed do sound like you're 14 instead of 24. Sooner or later they'll know, obviously already have doubts so why are you still unsuccessfully trying to deny the truth?
Do they know? Im sure they do. Has this happened? No cause Im only 15 and havent told many people. What to do? Chill, your parents love you. They dont care, they just love you.
