So how important is this "coming out of the closet" thing? I'm a guy. I do have another guy that I like whom I'm going out with. Nobody except for a few of my closest friends know that I'm gay. Not even my parents. The problem is with telling my parents is that I don't know what their reactions are gonna be. They are super religious so it's going to be a huge problem. I doubt they would end up not minding it. Then again, they will eventually find out about it. Might as well be from me right?

Homosexual relationships do not last as homosexuality is a fetish and it leads to disloyalty.
OK but should I come out to my parents?
You won't need to if you wait another month and the relationship ends anyway. If you want to pretend you're a magical fairy in the single queer relationship that is real and not fetish fulfillment the answer really ends up being the same as "do I tell my parents about my girlfriend". It doesn't make it any different that it's a guy in terms of your end of things, don't' tell them if you wouldn't tell them about a gf, otherwise go ahead, I don't care.
That's a lot of words to tell me that you're from the third world
Just do it when you feel ready and it makes sense? If you're financially dependent on your parents just stay in the closet until you aren't.
I am still financially dependent I guess. I still haven't finished college
Take your time anon, but also don’t lie to yourself and say that it will magically become “easier” later. Until your ready, try and ease yourself into it. If your parents are Christian, maybe you can talk to your priest and ask for advice.
This is assuming you’re not dependent on your parents, in which case tread carefully.
Don't worry son I know you're gay just don't tell your father
Your parents already know
Lol you can try but I keep all the proof that I might be gay well hidden
They probably know. Teenage boys can't shut the fuck up about girls. If you never talked about girls, which I assume you didn't because you're a homo, they most likely know. Of course since they're religious they're probably coping about it.
I doubt that. My parents were probably happy that their son was behaving so well and not chasing after women lol
If you're in your 20s and have never once shown interest in a girl your parents must either know something is up or they're overdosing on copium.
>They are super religious so it's going to be a huge problem
Be honest, would they physically harm you and/or have you kidnapped and sent to a conversion camp? If yes then stay in the closet.
>Then again, they will eventually find out about it.
Says who? Just stay in the closet to them until you become financially independent.
>kicked out and disowned
Someone is bound to notice or see me going out with another guy
If they'll take away your safety net then why would your dad throwing a punch out of disgust/rage be out of the question? You can date men, not come out to parents, and keep your college fund. Not everyone has to know. I say this as a lesbian in a similar situation.
>Someone is bound to notice or see me going out with another guy
Deny deny deny
Yeah but as a woman you aren't brain damaged and retarded like he is. Women are functional, their brains work correctly. The human brain is designed to deceive and lie and manipulate. Men are stunted and want to be "honest" because muh "pride", lol
No this isn't a gender thing. I notice this a lot in younger zoomer gays/lesbians/trans people who recently discovered themselves, especially the sheltered ones who live on the internet. As someone who was raised around people who genuinely plan, have attempted, or want to kill LGBT people, being hate crimed is real, and OP saying his parents are religious raises red flags.
OP doesn't have to out himself 100% to have the life he wants. He should live in reality and prioritize his safety, and more importantly his safety net since he's still dependent on them for school. Which also means making sure any boyfriend he has understands this and is on the same page.
Holy based people you were raised around
Sad they were ineffectual
Just fucking tell them lol. There will never be a moment in time where coming out to your parents is going to be fun, easy, or "the right time".
Your parents probably already know, too. But they probably won't say it because it's just as awkward for them.
Trust me, if you don't say it, you never will and you'll be a 30 year old man still in the closet despite the fact that everyone knows. Even if you're not in the closet, without coming out, it'll be a pink elephant.
Just come out. If you think your parents will disown you or mistreat you, wait until you move out, but do it sooner than later.
Don’t come out until you are financially independent. You don’t have a lot to gain, and you have everything to lose. Do not leave yourself in a position where you may become homeless if your parents have a poor reaction.
>But If they say stuff like "gays should be killed" you should really just move somewhere far away and go no contact.
Oh... My dad said something similar. I don't think he would kill me though.
>why would your dad throwing a punch out of disgust/rage be out of the question?
I dont think my dad is the kind of person to hit me. My mom is a different story.
I think like the other anon said, I should probably stay inside for a couple of more years.
Stop being a homosexual, get a job that requires physical labor
I work out if that's what you're assuming
