I appreciate the input. It gets tougher and tougher to remain in the closet with our families.
I met my girlfriend's dad the other day, and she had to introduce me as a friend. I understood completely, but the situation sucked.
Perhaps I am expecting the worst, and maybe our families wouldn't have a bad reaction.
My husband and I did start out young, so that's an interesting thought to maybe explain .... I took his virginity at 20 years old, I was 21. Soooooo young!!
I just don't know how to say, "Mom, we have a girlfriend."
