10. Doing it in public is the thrill factor.

 

This guy is 45 and looks like a tired, rode hard, put away wet hound-dog. He's hating his life and everything about it, or he wouldn't look that old and beat-up.

I'm 49 in a couple of weeks, went shopping with my eldest sister (3 years older) and BIL two years ago and the sales-woman said "It's so nice of your Mom and Dad to bring you out shopping to our store"... It didn't end well. Even the most miserable of my 45+ <60 year old family members don't look as run down, run over twice and backed over again as this guy. Even though my sister is a horrible person, I won't go shopping with her lest someone assume (and say) they think she's my mother. Same goes for my two other sisters, the youngest being 2.5 years younger. They hate their lives, and it shows.

Point is, there's nothing like coming out, to be whoever you are, as early as possible. It doesn't matter how, just that you're true to yourself. It's not a gay thing, it's not about being gay, it's a letting go thing that relieves the stress of life that makes so may of us old before our time. The strictures of society can be killers - grow up, get a job, get married, and work for forty five years.

Just trust yourself to do something different, or you'll end up like this guy.
