I love my friend but he acts too gay sometimes. When we go out in public there are instances when I feel slightly embarrassed by his behavior. Especially, when we are around my family who are still warming up to the fact I’m gay. I don’t know if I should say something to him or just bite my tongue. I know saying something may hurt his feelings, and I don’t want to do that. However, I wish he would tone it down a bit. I look forward to hearing what you think I should do.
I’m on the fence about dating this guy I met, and I’m hoping you can help me out a bit. He seems like a good guy. He has a great job, is very funny, his smile is sexy, and surprisingly he has an amazing ass. However, he’s white and I’m black. And please don’t think I’m a racist or something. It’s just that when I envisioned my boo, it was a man of color. I can’t imagine bringing a white man around my friends, or taking one home to meet my mom. Plus, we come from different cultures. I’m not sure if I’m talking myself out of something that I don’t need to or what. That’s where your advice comes in. Thanks in advance for help.
How old is too old for me to be dating? I’m 23, and I started dating this man I met at a bar who is 44. My older sister told me I have no business seeing him because he’s too old, but I like him. He’s well groomed, has a good job, and makes me laugh. And he’s so much more mature then the guys my age. What do you think?
Young But Ready
I’ll just get right to the point. I’m 25 years old, a black man, and gay. The problem is, I haven’t “come out” to my family yet. My mom and dad are very old school Christian, and my two older brothers are kind of homophobic. I’m afraid that if I tell them I’m gay, they won’t talk to me anymore. On the other hand, I’m tired of living this secret double life. I know people say I have to live my truth, but I don’t want to lose my family while doing it. They mean everything to me. What do you think I should do?
Thanks in advance,
Still in the Closet
