“So I’ve been following this page for awhile and it’s really helped me figure some things out. I haven’t posted anything here at all because I haven’t told my family or friends about being ace. But I think I want to change that.
Long story short, I just came out to the first person ever as gray-asexual. He was very understanding and respectful. We’re coworkers, and I feel this experience has actually strengthened our friendship.
But now I feel like I should come out to at least some friends and/or family, at the very least my twin sister as she’s the most important person on the planet to me.
Do you all have any advice for coming out to loved ones? Anything that would be good to know before I do this? It makes me really scared to think about and I’m afraid I’m going to cry the whole time.”
