Coming Out... Or Trying

I had my first girlfriend at 12 years old, she was girlie and cute with a great smile and a sweet disposition. I dated a few other girls after her, on and off. My parents growing up, were very religious... what made me happy didn't matter if it was wrong in the eyes of God. At fifteen, I tried to tell them about a girlfriend I had, my Mom shrugged it off as a phase. I turned to boys, thinking it was more "normal" and hoping to be in a better standing with my parents. I was with many boys, trying to find love, or an ******... never succeeding. When I was 18, I had my son, and had enough. I didn't care what anyone thought anymore. I dated my ex for almost 5 years, domestic situation from the start. I had love, and what I assumed was a good ****** or two... many years later, the breakup came. My parents came to terms with the fact that I was a lesbian, though they still mention the nice Christian man I could find if I looked. February 20, 2009 I began an amazing journey through love, real true love. My girlfriend and I have been together for almost a year now, she is my life... my best friend, my lover, my cuddle bug... I absolutely adore her. I've known for about 10 months that she is the one I want to spend the rest of my life with.

Giley here, It is wonderful that you do have a son, even though you are not with his father. I too am lesbian, and Carol have been together since the 7th grade. { read my stories}. Carol and I would have loved to have children at some point, so at least you do have your son, and let's hope that the woman who does spend the rest of your life with you makes a good parent. Good luck to you, I am sure you are up for the challange!!!

Thank you, Kris. I appreciate your comment!<br />
And Grace, no, she doesn't have any problems with me having a child by a man, he's not in the picture anymore and denies being my son's father... so it doesn't bother her. We both want to have a few kids later on in life.

Congrats on finding someone to love and who loves you. May your life be blessed with great joy and happiness.<br />

I personally am a devout Christian. I want to encourage you not to let your parents (or traditional biblical understanding) come between you and God. I believe he loves us all. The most important part of the overiding messages in the Bible are to love God and to love your neighbor.<br />

Challenge your parents assumptions about God by loving them and all People as Christ would have.
