So here I am, shrouded in darkness.

A+ A-

I haven't been really sure about my sexual orientation for quite a while. I thought I'm not the typical homosexual. I didn't feel drawn sexually to 99% of men; however, a few years ago something happened.

Not a single soul knows my secret. I had an online friend I played online games with and I had never seen at this point, not even a picture. He seemed annoying and weird. Anyway, he asked to meet up with me and I agreed. I felt something towards him when I met him, I thought it was simply what friendship is.

Years went by, and now I'm absolutely certain I'm in love. I'm not sure about his orientation tho, and I'm not sure where to go from here. Should I tell him? Should I not?

    Advice

    First define his mentality! I mean you should first know his opinion about homosexuality! I too fall in love with someone. Firstly I asked him what he thinks of homosexuality! it was perfect that he's not Homophobic, but he's totally against it! So it was awesome! But I didn't rush the things, I gave myself a little while to make sure that I love then, Then I told him that I'm gay (Only that I'm gay) Are you tracking? After I told him that I'm gay and he accept it, I told that I'm in love with him after about month. and Later he told me that he's Sorry he's straight :((
    hope you don't experience the same. But what I'm trying to tell is not rush things, but take it slow :) You can have him as friend instead of losing him forever! :) Good Luck! and tell what you've done!!

      Well, he's too religious, so I'm guessing the verdict would be banishment by exile.

      Oooh Pooteh! I will tell you something, I'm in love with that guy (He is straight) I can't get through it. So I was wondering why don't you give up with idea! Can't you see, he's religious, it such a bad idea!!
      However I know how it feels! So you've a second option, is to try (Who knows)! The guy I'm loving is too religious (He's accepting me), So I think you should ask your guy first about homosexuality in general, Then calculate whether you should come out or not, If yes! Come out, and after a while tell him that you're loving him!
      But remember if you can forget it, it was save a lot of tears, heartaches ...etc. You know what I mean right? Good Luck!! Update me :))

      Experience

      So, yeah. Here's what I did:
      I as subtly as humanly possible insinuated that by some far fetched possibility, I might be...just might be slightly homosexual. I haven't heard from him for the past 2 days.
      We used to chat on daily basis, so, I'm hoping I didn't lose him forever. If that's the case, I'll settle for just being friends and having him around and the chance of meeting him every once and a while.
      After all, I want him to be happy, even if it wasn't with me.
