Hi everybody. This isn't really a 'question' post, more of a statement. I just wanted to say a big thanks to Miz S and everyone else here at scarleteen.
Why? A couple of nights ago I came out as bisexual to a couple of my friends at uni. I've been deliberating over this for ages (i think i did a post in august(?) about that). Anyway, it went better than I thought it possibly could. One of the friends I was with told me she was a lesbian, and that loads of our mutual friends knew about this (including the other person we were with) and none of them minded at all! Whcih is great, cos now I have a whole load of people who, if I decide to tell at some point, i know won't mind and that takes *a lot* of worry off my mind. I know it's rather long winded story, but I just wanted to say thanks to eveyone here. I might not have made that many posts, but i've read loads of the ones other people have made, and I think that doing that (+articles here) have really helped me come to terms wiht who am i quicker than otherwise. I'm only out to two people, but it's a huge step (as many here will know, i'm sure) for me to have made So keep up the good work...

Welcome to the world outside the closet, Clav!
And I'm so glad it went well.

Yay!!!!!! Clav, I think that's wonderful! I know how hard it is to come out of the closet. You've got guts! I hope life outside of the closet treats you well. It seems you have some great friends, too. Take care!

Congratulations. It makes me so happy when people can just be open about who they are, no matter who they are.
Wishing you the best.
