I am about to text my friend that I am Pan. This is what I am about to text can you give me your opinions on if its good and hope to improve it.

"I need to tell you something and you can't tell anyone else until I am ready, But I am Pansexual. It means that I like both genders and those who are Trans or Non Binary. I have been feeling this way for a while and needed to tell someone. I am still the same person and I hope you respect that."

Edit, I am dyslexic so i am sorry for any spelling or punctuation mistakes.

Why do you think this needs saying? I'm not suggesting it doesn't, but a text doesn't seem a very natural way.

That doesn't make any sense, why does Covid make any difference? Why do you need to make an announcement of this? The Covid situation means you can't act on any of your feelings, even if you've got someone lined up. So there's no urgency to tell anyone anything.

I am not trying to make an announcement i am trying to tell a friend something personal about me, so I can have someone I trust to confide in. I also feel like I need someone to know and i am not ready to tell my parents.

But you can't have proper,confidential discussions with someone by text. This is important and personal, it needs to be done face-to-face, at the right time and in the right place. You need to be able to judge your friends reaction and they need to be able to judge yours - that can't happen by text.

If you feel you need to talk to someone, have you tried a helpline, just until the lockdown is over?
