A few weeks back at a football game, my only male friend blurted out that I was lesbian. Thankfully, everyone was loud and riled up because it was the last game of the season, so nobody heard.....except for one girl. My crush for the past few months: Allyson.
Another fact she discovered is that I used to have a crush on her last year, but I lied because I still have a crush on her.
She wasn't phased by the fact that I was lesbian because she's bi and has been out for several months. The sad thing is she regretted coming out, or rather just being blunt. She was new and when someone had asked about her orientation, she was honest and replied as bi.
Shallow reason for joining site: To discuss national and local issues concerning the gay world
Deeper reason for joining site: To reflect my emotions, fears, and desires to a group of people that already accept me for who I am
Yesterday, I came to the conclusion that I need an outlet for my gayness. I need to let my thoughts be heard, whether or not others agree with me. Sadly, I'm not true to myself about this. I can't talk to my friends and family about my sexuality or issues of gay marriage. Fortunately, I found Oasis to be my connection with others with the same yearning for connection, understanding, and acceptance.
My first thought of the site: "This looks welcoming."
When I arrive: "People here are of two extremes. Really happy...or really depressed."
It's a shame that this world drives people to be one of two extremes. This is really presumptuous that everyone is one of the two, but that is merely my first impression and isn't accurate. The two extremes make me think of another pair of extremes: heterosexual and homosexual. An individual may seem to be one of the two, but they can be anywhere in between. Just some of us are afraid to admit it because others are afraid of welcoming the thought of an indefinite line between the two extremes.
