Hi All

I'm new to this NG,so forgive me if this has been done to death,but,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,I was wondering,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,how many of us , have been mistakenly assumed to be Homosexual. I can't help but feel that at some point in our earlier years that certain feelings were mistaken for other feelings.I know I read an article about a guy who got involved in a gay relationship then realized he was going in the wrong direction then for whatever reason he did himself in because he didn't want to disgrace his family. This was in 74 or 75 & seems like he was 19 or so and in a small town . But I wonder how many people got caught up in the earlier stereotype,you know,if you like girls clothes then you must want to be a girl.

Then comes the bad relationship,failed marriages & on & on,till you find someone who you can talk to or maybe the person who you were meant to be with for the rest of your life,that you can really open up to & just talk about anything & everything.

I don't mean to go on and on but this NG seems so open & supportive that I can't help but feel that there are many.

Thanks for listnin'
