Default I'll remember this line for the rest of my life

I recently accepted myself as Bi after 4 years being in denial due to fear of discrimination by my friends. So I was pretty wary of coming out. I came out to a few LGBT friends and naturally, they were very supportive and welcomed me to the community.

But there was this particular guy I had a big fear coming out to. He was a Roman Catholic and he was one guy that I really liked. In fact, a photo that I took with him was the main reason why I finally accepted myself being Bi.

I was afraid coming out to him would destroy the friendship and make thing awkward, so one day I spoke to him through Whatsapp and we casually landed on the topic of religion. He told me how much he didn't feel committed to being a Roman Catholic and how he wished he was a freethinker. Then I just casually asked him about his thoughts on LGBT and he said he was totally cool with it.

Things were looking good for me. I was going to come out to him in person but I suddenly got worried I would distract him from his preparation for his National Exams. So I took the courage to come out to him on WhatsApp and the following replies I got were messages that I'll remember for the rest of my life.

"Ben, idk what to say but its ok. I still love you *heart emojis*"
"You're like a really really nice guy like for real."

I almost teared up. Those were some, if not the nicest words anyone has said to me.

Makes me wonder why the heck was I so terrified of coming out to him. This is one friend that'll I'll remember for life.

I don't know what its like in Singapore, but here in Canada there are more ppl that would support you than disapprove. And those that are disapproving are seen as time warped.

I'm glad that your friends are so accepting; that makes things easier. Good luck!
