    The same way you did with your mum and best friend. Only come out to people when you think you are ready to.

    Why not?
    because no one really cares

    it doesn't matter if your gay or not its your decision

    why is that if your gay you need to 'come out' you dont see straight men comming out ?

    The other poster is right. Only come out to those close to you whom you can trust. It may be that they have guessed already. I have a gay son and a gay daughter and have always known since they were quite young without them telling me. Their other siblings knew too. Those who love you will accept you for who you are and not what you are. Remember that.

    Let's be realistic here. Many families have problems identifying with young people who are gay. We are not such a liberated society as many think we are hence why the OP feels unsure of himself.

    You said you 'think' you are gay. Please make sure that you are before coming out!
    Secondly, don't feel like because you're gay you have to come out. Obviously in a perfect world we wouldnt have to do that but you shouldn't feel pressured to do so.
    If you know the person really well and you know that they're in no way homophobic and you feel you want to tell them, just do it gently. There's no magic way to say it, unfortunately.
