Hi there-

I have recently posted about my issues with my sexual orientation regarding how insanely confused I am. I really want to tell her..but I am unsure of how she might react, and part of me wonders if she suspects I might like men on a sexual level.

In the past week, I have told two of her close friends about my confusions, and they have both said I need to talk to her..which I do..but i am just extremely scared she might flip out on me. Then again, part of me thinks she wouldnt be suprised. Do any of you have any ideas on how to "gauge" her reaction before actually telling her?

Like I said before, you married this person, you live with this person, so I feel certain you are going to have a better sense of how she might react than anyone. I doubt there's anything you can feel out now you haven't already.

You keep saying you suspect she will react negatively: if this is how you keep feeling, pervasively, then I think it makes sense for us to talk about that possibility, how you feel about it, and how equipped you feel to deal with that.
