I consider myself out, but I have this new dorm situation with only one roommate in a suite that's made for 5-6.
It's really really empty at college over the summer and the room can feel extremely isolated at times.
I have not come out to my new roomie because I do not want to make her feel uncomfortable. I am pretty much a stranger, and it's weird enough living in such an empty dorm.
I don't think she knows a lot of gay people, but I am basing this on the extremely stereotypic fact that I know she had never met any vegetarians until she went to college.
---that may be a bit weird, but if you think about it, it makes sense---
BUT, since I have avoided coming out to her, I feel a little bit like a hypocrite.
Not much, but a little.
I don't think I am going to come out to her, at least for a while.
Wait until I get to know her better.
the only thing that bothers me is that the longer I wait, the more it feels like I am pretending to be something I am not. I omit certain details in conversation that alter what I am about in order not to shock her.
It's a fine line between being me and being polite.
