Maybe he already suspects it and never let on? Get it out and you'll feel much better.

Since he is your best friend, he should be ready to accept you as you are - no matter what you like, your preferences, and your personality. This should not have any bearing or affect your friendship in any way.

Maybe he may find it hard to accept in the beginning, perhaps he would be shocked - but if he treasures the friendship, it wouldn't change anything at all.

Be straight, open and honest with him. And if he cannot accept you and your sexuality, then perhaps he isn't worth being your best friend, after all.

my best friend decided to tell me one night while we were drunk. he just grabbed my d*** while i was trying to sleep!

we worked it out in the end, but i would say just be open and honest with him!

if he's your friend....he'll accept you for who you are.

and you never know! like said before, he might already suspect it!?


good luck!

Just be honest with him. If he's really your friend, it won't matter.

I agree with the others.

If he's really your best friend, he won't leave you for it Why should you have to keep such a secret?

Just be straightforward and sincere so there's no confusion. Make sure you know exactly how he feels too.

I was like that with my friends especially one of them cause I've known them for ages but when I told her I was so nervous but she was fine with it, if they are your true friends your sexuality wont matter they will be able to except it and move on

I've never had to deal with anything like that , but I have had a best friend for many years and I could tell him anything and never worry about how he'd react to the news. You have to do what is best for you, if you lose him as a friend because of your sexualy preverance then he never was your freind to begin with.

Also You should be prepared for some reaction though , he may feel that it takes away from his machoness for him to be best buds with a gay guy, but stick to what is best for you , but be prepared to give him time to deal with the news.

Good luck you ya hun , I hope it all works out well for ya.

Have him sit down, take a deep breath,and tell him. If he is a good friend he will
accept you as you are. Do not tell him while drinking as that may open a whole
new can of worms

When he leasts expects it tell him. That is what I do. I like to make sure poepl can handl such a thought before I tell them. But a good friend should be able to handle it.

damn.. that would have creeped me out!

but yeah.. just let him know casually.. and maybe make it clear that you don't have feelings for him like that?? he might feel a lil weird.. people have this mind set that if you tell them your gay or bi they think you might be coming onto them. but not all people.. if he is a true friend he will accept you for who you are.. wish you the best!!

Yeah. Be sure to let him know that. People seem to think that gays find everyone of their sex attractive

Ditto ^.

Maybe you can make a suggestive comment when some hot guy walks by, and bring it up that way?

And really - definitely expect a reaction; if he's worth his salt though he'll be fine and you'll be fine.

G'luck!
