Friday afternoon I came out to my friend Britt who I've have been dying to tell for a while now. She is easily one of the funniest human beings I have ever had the delight to meet. I ran out of the arena once my yoga class was over and met up with her at the Student Union. We always jokingly talk about hooking up and I find it hysterical. She was nice enough to ask me to her sorority formals all three years. Freshman year AXO Semi was one of the best nights of my life. I couldn’t go last year because her Semi landed on my birthday and this year I wanted her to have the opportunity to go with a straight guy.
Staying toasty and looking extra awkward haha
We sat down at a table in the Student Union and I told her almost immediately. She was so freaking cool about it! I swear, I would have never guessed just how accepting every single one of my friends are. I have the best support group.
Then she tells me that her older brother is gay!! She said that her brother uses an app on his phone to find other guys like himself in his area called Grindr. It definitely sounds more like a hookup app. haha After Britt and I talked for a bit, she had to go to work, so I headed to the library.
Who do I run into? My friend Tiffany that I went to high school with, whom I've wanted to come out to for awhile as well. I knew telling her was going to be interesting because she had the biggest crush on me in high school. She's adamant that we kissed in high school but I have no recollection of it and she still gives me shit to this day for not asking her to prom. Ha
When I told her I was gay, she would not accept it. I knew this was going to be her reaction, so it didn’t surprise me at all. “No! I don’t believe you. No, you’re not gay! There’s nothing gay about you! Stop lying to me!” haha
This went on for a few minutes, until she realized I was being serious. Unfortunately, she was meeting up with her friends so our conversation got cut short, but she sent me a text saying it doesn’t change the way I look at you! I’m sad you waited so long but I’m happy you told me :) Call me whenever. I’m serious!
