Hi Ethan,

you’re young and you’re living in a manageable vicinity. I don’t know exactly the social climate, but in smaller towns with a more rural community it will not be that easy for a boy to find a boyfriend. I remember, when I was your age, my straight classmates started dating girlfriends and boasting about their adventures. I stood silently aside and could only tell to be interested into playing soccer and being engaged with the Boy Scouts.

I had my first affair when I was some years older than you’re now. It’s not been a decision to wait, it’s been a result of different reasons.

I absolutely understand that you’re longing for somebody to be together with, I would wish you to find him today, but....

I’m sure you’ll find him, but please remain patient, although sometimes it seems unbearable.

True Gigi. Just the fact that we are a minority makes it difficult in general to find someone. Not impossible, but most times it is much more work for us. This is why many people maximise their outcomes by moving to large cities. I feel bad for those who are country people at heart and feel ostracised and marginalised by those communities. They are forced to leave an environment they feel comfortable in to find love. I was at least lucky to be from the suburbs of large cities and could get into town, and be an urbanite in my heart.

But @Ethan , you have the Internet. The more senior members among us, myself included, did not. You are lucky. I went to the library to find anything I could about a boy like me, and you know what I found? Nothing. Null. We were erased. Amazingly I somehow knew I was not abnormal. But it wasn’t until I was 21 that I had a kiss from a boy and a boyfriend. I was out of the closet at school when I was 18. So, love yourself and hang in there.

Preach it, Audrey Leigh!!
I'm not picky about this, but for the record it's "Audry," not "Audrey". Audry is a legitimate but rare alternate spelling. I'm a legitimate but rarekind of person (aren't we all), so I used a rare form of my name.

Hugs,
Audry Leigh

Noted. Just an inadvertent transgression on my part. Lol. Legitimate or not, you can spell your name how you please. Many people try to put an E in Davy. And for me, it’s just not there. I get it.
