Well, I've noticed an increase of people telling others about this thing we all have in common, and posting here about the results. Lately, those results have been, "Oh, they accepted it..." I was curious myself, if my luck would remain, and it did. I even went as far as to say, "can I wear one while I sleep next to you?" to which my girlfriend responded, "Of course, it's not like its a bad thing."
Well, come the next night when she asked if I was going to change, I stopped. What purpose did anything I do serve? Nothing. There was no point in making the situation potentially awkward for either of us.
I keep noticing these good posts about how peoples parent or loved-ones or friends accept it, but no one has given a real reason as to why the told them.
Is be accepted really that important people? What happens if your not accepted? I almost started advocating telling people, but now more than ever, want to tell people that it usually doesn't accomplish anything. I spent a lot of last night wishing I hadn't mentioned anything, even if she did accept it. I don't want a lot of you people going through that.
Anyways, the question is why some people want to tell others so badly, and what they expect out of confessing...
