Hi @Jonas

It's totally normal to be nervous about telling telling your friends or family. When i told my friends i was bi it was sudden. I didn't leave any clues at all, I just told them when i felt ready and i was comfortable with whatever might happen. It was difficult for some of my friends to get use to the fact i was bi but they were happy for me.

I haven't told some of my friend yet as i don't know how they will react and i"m not ready to loose any friends but when the time is right I will tell them eventual because you cant keep pretending because it drains you.

But you don't have to tell people all at once, if its easier, you can tell them one at a time. It might take some time for your friends/family to understand to get use to the fact that your bi because its something new to them. They might ask you some question out of curiosity but its up to you to answer them or you can say that your not ready to answer them just yet. Also if they do distance themselves from you they might just be trying processing it,

I know that its for ditch the label advisors to do this but i have attached some links to help you, maybe read it and see if they might help

Hey @Jonas


@Bkerby14 has given loads of great advice (thank you!!). When you come out, some people might act a bit weird at first. Although we ideally want everyone to have a great reaction, it can sometimes not go how we planned. If you feel like you can, it's important to give people a chance to see if they can accept you for who you are, especially if you want them to stay in your life. Some people just need time to process. Here's an article about why some people can have bad reactions (it's written about parents, but it's the same for everyone) https://www.ditchthelabel.org/my-par...me-coming-out/. Also, exactly as Bkerby said, you don't have to come out to everyone all at once. Coming out to people one by one can help to build confidence which might be a good idea for you.


It would be great to hear what you think, especially after you've read through the articles that Bkerby and I sent to you.


Sending positive vibes :-)

Hey! I'll be sixteen in a few months and am questioning my sexuality. Anyhow, I just wanted to reach out to say that I'm glad that you have it figured out and are coming out. Congrats!
