So, anyone here have any stories about this? First hand or other's to share. A friend of mine, known her for sixteen years, and I have decided to go for it. She's hetero, i'm homo. We've shared our plans with our family and friends, some get it and some don't. My mom takes this as a sign that I am finally becoming the straight son of her dreams but that isn't the case at all. I think that has been my biggest struggle, trying to find ways to define what were doing when there are so many labels that are overlapping.
