I'm bisexual and i'm struggling to keep it to myself. I thought i should tell my best friend who i've known for ages but i don't know if this is the right thing to do. Should i ''come out'' or just let it keep bothering me?

What are you looking/hoping for in coming out to your friend?

In other words, what do you want from her/him in coming out to them? Do you also feel ready to handle or manage any negative reactions? Is this someone who you feel pretty sure would be accepting and supportive?

I eventually didn't tell her because i realised i wasn't ready to tell anyone yet. I've decided i will tell when it feels right to say something. I shouldn't have thought it was so easy when actually 'coming out' is harder than it sounds.
