TELLING MY NOT SO ACCEPTING PARENTS ABOUT MY GIRLFRIEND


Lane ย  ย 

Recommended Posts

ย 

I recently started dating my girlfriend at the beginning of April. My mom knows Iโ€™m Bi but my dad does not. Right now I am home with them for a week and want to tell them that I have a girlfriend but I am terrified. I was thinking a letter could be a good option but they are leaving the same day I am for a trip so they would either have to read it while Iโ€™m here or wait until they get back. I donโ€™t know what to do. I would like to say something along the lines of: I have something important to tell you, it might upset you but I want you guys to know so that we can work through this together. This past semester I met the most amazing girl, she smart, funny, kind and treats better than anyone has. So, I want you both to know that I have a girlfriend. I donโ€™t want you to be upset but if thatโ€™s how you feel right now, I understand. This canโ€™t be easy to hear and is probably hard to process. I love you guys and hope we can work through this together.ย 

What would be any advice, thoughts or tips?ย

But I'm not letting it stop me from being who I am

As my name implies I'm a trans Male and my mum isn't the best at accepting my identity atm. I hope for your sake that its different.

Your a grown woman. Your allowed to date who ever you wanna date regardless of gender
