I Am a Closet Lesbian

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,410 People

    Well I am mostly still in the closet.

    My closest friends know. Well basically anyone who isn't my family knows. and i would prefer to keep it that way. I joked about it to my mom once (to test the waters) and her reaction was not one i would like to see ever again. She may be fine with everyone else being gay but...

    I am hoping to chat to Asian lesbians/bisexuals

    (closeted or not) here in the UK. I'm hoping there's another woman who understands how it feels to close yourself up and not be able to talk to anyone about these feelings, no matter how close they are to you

    I am a 22 year old female

    who has been in three long-term relationships with men. I am currently on my third one, and it is to that same point it was at with any other male I have been with. I get into these relationships for the wrong reasons. At first I feel I am genuinely into these people and I think...

    So I haven't come out

    yet to my parents or anyone else except for two people. Yes I know it's important to do this, but it's so stupid. My parents already suspect me of being lesbian and they never fail to remind me that they will love me no matter what. I just think the whole coming out thing is...

    The reason for this is

    because my family are strict Muslims and wouldn't allow me to be a lesbian. I remember once i was joking about it, just to see their reaction and they took it so seriously that now i am scared to tell them. I know for sure that this isn't a phase. However i'm 17 now so i will...

    I did the stupidest thing ever.

    I pushed away the girl that I liked so much and said mean things to her. Idk why I always tend to push away ppl that gets close to me. Now tht I apologised to her and we're friends again, it's never the same as before... I like her even more this time.

    Well, I'm out now. Happy Mother's Day,

    I'm gay! Well, that's not exactly how it came out. She didn't say much, it was kind of awkward. But it's done.

    The Closet Gets Cramped

    Hi, my name is Stephanie. :) I am a college student who only recently started coming to terms with my sexuality. I've known for as long as I can remember that I liked girls, but I always did my best to stifle the truth, and keep my feelings buried. This is a huge contributing...

    I Am Almost Certain I'm Gay... But I Love My Boyfriend. Argh. Help.

    I'm in my mid-twenties and I'm really just starting to accept that I'm a lesbian. The signs were always there, and I suppose it's always been in the back of my head since I was little. Men really don't interest me. I LOVE them purely and fully. I even feel in love with them.I...

    My Daughter Is A Closet Lesbian

    I have been wanting to write this story for a long time. This story is a tribute to my one and only daughter. For simplicity I will refer to my daughter as "M". After 5 children and several years of marriage my wife and I divorced. Our youngest, M, thought that I did not love her...

    I'm Stuck In Closet-land..

    I'll start at the beginning.. I was a late bloomer in the love department. As a kid, I was always fine with just having fun whereas the other girls were more concerned with who liked who and which boys were the cutest. As much as I tried, I could not get into these conversations...

    I told my friend today.

    I was the first whom she came out as a bisexual, so I thought she would understand me. I was right. she supports me. She told me: "whatever you need me or talk about something; I'm here for you. We are together in this". Was even better because she told me this face to face...

    My mom just found out

    that I am in love with one of my best friends.. She was fuming mad at me. She said that I better stop seeing her... I could only cry. I wanted to tell her that I am really gay and there is nothing I can do with it. I want to run away from home so I can be free.

    I tried so hard to like boys.

    But it just never really worked. When I tried dating guys, after a couple weeks I just couldn't do it anymore, I felt nothing towards them. Every time. I kept trying to go farther with guys sexually and I never felt aroused or good. When I lost my virginity to a guy it was awful...

    I don't know what to say.

    I have been in the closet most of my life and I'm still in. I don't know how to come out. I am scared that my family and IRL friends, my URL friends already knows it, will not like me anymore. So... how to come out "safe"?
