hi, im completely gay and i get asked at work if ive found a boyfriend yet, why not etc etc. if guys ask me out and i have to say i have trust issues or im happy being single but i feel completely fake. i hate lying.

how do other people deal with this? have you become comfortable lying to your friends, family and co workers every day?

i feel really sick of pretending to be the "straight girl still mending a broken heart"

Lisa, be happy with who you are. I don't know your situation with your family but if you feel you need to come out do so when you feel comfortable. I see that you know who you are. That is wonderful! You're a flower that's ready to bloom.
