I Am a Closeted Gay

Please read and give advice, I want it all 3,692 People

    I'm straight acting but I don't want to marry a

    straight girl. I'm looking for a girl who is attracted to girls. I just want to marry to overcome social stress and to make my parents and friends happy.

    Well yesterday was very unexpected.

    I had a rough night on New Years (almost got arrested) parents got a call at 4am that I was found passed out by the cops. But the parents were in Florida at the time so not much they could do. They got back last night around 5am and I knew there would be a talk in the morning...

    I live in a glass closet.

    Most people know I am bisexual but I prefer to keep the details of my attraction to myself. I am not ashamed or in denial, but due to my circumstances with my body, I am unlikely to enter into a relationship with either gender. I also don't want to 'come out' if people already...

    It's Never Too Late

    As a kid I was bullied every day by this one boy who didn't know how to show that he liked me. His name was Jerry. At the time, I had no idea he had a crush on me. And he was afraid because I was also a guy and he thought there was something wrong with being gay. He used to tease...

    Outed At Work And Laughing About It

    Its been a little while since I've posted anything, mainly because real life was just too entertaining to pass up. As the story title said, I got outed at work about six weeks ago. It was my sales manager of all people, a man who I believed couldn't count above three without...

    awkward when your mates are asking you

    if you think the girl that just walked past was fit, when in my head I have no interest and just say yeah so they'll shut up.

    While I have already come out to my family,

    a cousin and most of my close friends, I'm still not officially "out". I guess it's as they say, coming out is a whole process rather than a single event.

    In a perfect world, I would be out

    and happier then I am now. No one would care that I was "different." Maybe I would be have a boyfriend and be able to treat him like a king and he would do the same. In a perfect world, I wouldn't be laying in bed cuddling my pillow and wishing things could be different..

    Where I am- I'm out as gay to mostly everybody.

    The only ones who don't know are those outside of my friend group and majority of my family. I don't feel a need to chant "I'm gay" to everyone I meet. Does it matter who you like? Love is love. Just be you.

    Closeted Gay Male. I Hate My Life

    I am a 21 year old closeted gay male and nobody knows about my situation. Though being gay, I still walk, talk, look and act just like any straight guy you see out there, probably even more masculine than most. Except my sexual attraction is with the same sex. I'm a straight man...

    Masculine, Gay and Closeted; Though Everyone Knows and I'm Messed Up.

    I am gay and closeted to my friends. In some ways it's stupid. The people I call my friends have known me for 10+ years and there have been comments regarding my sexuality as I've never had a girlfriend or talked about girls. My response has always been: "...

    I have been trying to explorer ways of coming

    out, I thought that by confessing here to other EP users that I am gay, and I actually have an online boyfriend, mischief, and I thought that it would be easier to come out as a gay man to friends and family. Maybe I'm bisexual? All I know is how attracted I am to other men.

    I don't know where to put my eyes.

    On the streets, whenever I see some hot guy, I look twice before looking away. It's just that tension building up from the heart to the throat, drying up. It sucks to be alone without anyone to share this to. Sexuality is not a shame. Shame.

    Recently I have been communicating with a few

    other guys out there who share my same ideas. They have inspired me to think more closely about my lifestyle and have inspired me to be more open. I have had gay feelings for a few years now but only recently have been able to talk about it.
